What to expect
  • Learning to surf in Castelldefels is an unforgettable experience. The gentle waves of the Mediterranean with warm temperatures throughout the year make surfing lessons very enjoyable in all seasons. You will meet your surf instructor at the meeting point to drive together to the best surf spot nearby. The instructor will have in the van all the surf equipment you need. The surf lesson lasts 1.5 hours in the water. A total of 2 hours including preparation time. If it is your first time, the instructor will teach you to catch the waves and stand up on the board. We estimate that you will need to book between 1 and 3 lesson in order to learn the basics to surf on your own. If you already have experience, your instructor will help you improve your technique: turning, posture or whatever you need. During the lesson, the instructor will take photos and videos with a GO-PRO so that you can analyse your technique or share your experience with others. When the lesson is over, you can wash off the salt and sand in the outdoor showers before heading back to the meeting point. If you hired the extra "Pick up at your accommodation" your surf guide will drive you back to your place.

First surf ever - Gerardo is amazing!
Feb. 2020 • Couples
Neither of us had ever surfed before but Gerardo is an excellent instructor! He took us to the perfect spot, was really encouraging and great at explaining things. We would absolutely recommend this experience to anyone who is even a little bit curious about surfing - we’re in love and can’t wait to try it again.

Best Surf Lesson!
Oct. 2019
Having my first surf lesson with Gerado was an awesome experience. He took care of everything and always made sure that everyone is safe during the lesson. He adjusted the teaching for everyone in the group so that noone felt left behind and everyone could have a fun day! He also encouraged to try to catch a wave on our own without his help if we felt that this one might be a good wave. I can only recommend to take this lesson, even when you have no idea about surfing or boardsports in general!
