Apart from the technical gestures specific to its sport, the difficulty of surfing lies to reading the ocean and the waves. Indeed, depending on weather conditions, the wave do not break in the spot and to not unroll the same way. This is why, to know how to surf you need to be able to anticipate the waves in order to position yourself in the right spot and stand up at the right time. Then once on the wave, know how to read it in order take the right lines and then perform the right tricks in the right place at the right time. Within our school, we place particular emphasis to read the environment and the waves to make you be able to surf by your own.

Surfing is a dangerous sport, this is why you will learn how to behave to do not hurt yourself and the others. You will learn how to master you board, to face the waves and the priority rules. 

We will also teach you how to choose the right equipment as well as the spot that you can surf. 

Finally, we will show you how to develop your physical skills in order to perform better and reducing the risk of injury.

Courses usually takes place in Papenoo in the north of the island of Tahiti.

The town offers nice black sand beach break suitable for all levels of surfing. 

The reef break waves in Tahiti are off the coast and are very dangerous. They can only be practiced by advanced level. Surf school in Tahiti cannot bring you there. 

Several spots are located in Papenoo town and we therefore choose the spot that best suited to your level and project. 

Sandbars (the topography of the seabed) are changing. We will teach you how to read them so you could one day be able to choose the right spot for you by your own. 

From 4 years old we welcome your children if they know how to swim. 

Then there is no limit of age (yes! Surfing has therapeutic vertus).

We form 3 different ages of group : kids, teenagers and adults.

We offer surf (shortboard), bodyboard and longboard lessons. 

The shortboard is a small board with pointed nose, it is very responsive and allow you to ride the waves with tight turns. 

The longboard is a larger board (9′) and more rounded at the nose. It floats more and it is more stable. It is less reactive and should be surf with wider turns. You have to move more on the board to maneuver it. 

The bodyboard is a very short foamy board that is practicing lying down with flippers. The tricks are acrobatic and the sport is more accessible for beginners.
