WELCOME TO CALIMA SURF !
Calima Surf have created a unique experience for travelers, friends and families.
We carry out different courses (initiation, refinement and advanced), depending on the level of each student we will intensify the security measures in the water. How to understand currents, weather maps and preferential rules between the surfers, the different types of board and which one is most suited to you, warm up and stretching exercises before entering the water, how to paddle correctly on the board, how to rest appropriately on the board whilst you wait for the next set of waves, how to read the direction the wave is taking, turning left and right, perfect positioning, getting up on the board, slowing down and accelerating… If you already have the experience you will refine your style with new and advanced techniques designed for each manoeuvre(take-off, bottom turn, re-entry, cutback, floater, snap, aerials, pipes..) you will develop and advance further with some good corrections based on our Photo- video analysis.
Everything that is necessary to become auto-sufficient and being able to practice this sport freely with all the correct precautions, a diploma that certifies your completion of the surf course, photos of you carrying out the activity, health and feeling of wellbeing whilst you carry out the activity in touch with nature, a healthy sun tan, new friends, ambition to travel the world with the only excuse of catching some waves, a new form of life where you’re the only protagonist and you carry out your dreams whilst only worrying about yourself.
Not at all, you will be happy to have time for yourself and being able to enjoy it. You shouldn’t have fear or feel embarrassed, 80% of the students we teach are beginners, if you don’t know how to swim properly don’t worry, the initiation is carried out in waist high water on a beach with a sandy bottom, all you need to do is inform us on your arrival at the school and our instructor will take the required precautions. You will feel unique taking the decision to carry out such an amazing activity, a dream come true, it’s all down to you.
If you’re a girl and you have doubts whether this sport is for you, you would be surprised by the large amount of girls that practice this sport, or by the number that sign up to our initiation classes each week.
Numbers wise we have nearly the same amount of boys and girls in all of our surf camps. You must also note that we tend to have the same number of girls that arrive with a partner or Friends as we do girls that arrive on their own.
In the surf house we have rooms for girls and boys separately.
In you arrive on your own we can assure you will leave with a bunch of new Friends. It’s very easy to make new Friends, because all of the people that you share the surf house with will be people that you carry out the surfing activities with, and just like you, they’ve chosen the same way to spend their holidays, so you will already have one thing in common.
It’s not essential, although it will help towards you performing the activity and your overall good feeling, we all know sports are healthy for you and the initiation into surf is very easy and good fun in you letus look after you. The course is very manageable, normally we start at 10am and finish at 15pm, this includes theory and practice in the water. We will do Two sessionsper day, each consisting of two hours with an hour break in between to rest and recharge your energy with a tasty lunch provided by ourselves, relaxing in the sun and having a few laughs.
Not with us in charge, you’ll have to your disposal all the initiation gear required to avoid any injuries that you could suffer or cause to any of the other people in the water. Our instructors are qualified lifeguards, the beach has a Sandy bottom and all of the students will be covered by our accident and liability insurance. The sea itself is not dangerous; it’s down to the inconsistence of each person and the lack of the correct knowledge when venturing out into the unknown…you should never be afraid of the sea, but always have a great respect for it. Establishing a set of fundamentals iskey to developing as a good surfer.
