Junior surf lessons – for kids and teenagers (14 – 17)
As at all Planet Surf camps we have a great team at our junior surf camp France in Moliets, that takes care of you, your questions and problems. Seeing as the core of our surfschool is our teaching concept, we choose our surf instructors very carefully. Besides being excellent surfers, our surf instructors have to be outstanding pedagogues as well. That’s how we can guarantee that you will experience significant progress in your surfing. Another extremely important aspect concerning our surf instructors is that they all must have official international surf instructor licences and are qualified life guards, so that your safety in the water is guaranteed at all times. All of our surf instructors are experienced and widely travelled surfers, most of whom have taken part in surf contests and some have even won the German championship of surfing.
There are two main topics that are very important to us: your safety and your progress – which is why we teach in small groups of max. 8 students. Groups of this size guarantee that the surf instructor can pay enough attention to each student, leading to rapid progress in your surfing skills. Furthermore, the surf instructor can react very quickly when needed, thus reducing the risk of injury to a minimum. Due to these small groups and the fact that we have three different levels of junior surf lessons, we are able to teach kids of every skill level in our junior Surf Camp France.
Junior surf lessons – THE BEGINNER COURSE: In the course of 24 lessons you will learn the basic movements of surfing. You will start off by taking your first waves in the whitewash and additionally have some theory lessons during which you will learn the basic facts about waves, equipment and surfing in general. We have structured these lessons in a way that you will have loads of fun while learning heaps!
Junior surf lessons – THE INTERMEDIATE COURSE: This course, which also consists of 24 lessons, is aimed at people who have already had surf lessons and are familiar with surfboards and waves. With the help and instructions of our surf instructors you will reach the next level of surfing by learning how to ride green waves. Even though you, as an intermediate, might already know the basics, you will have a couple of theory lessons as well. It is important that every student knows the essential facts about the ocean etc., so that, one day, you will be able to go surfing on your own.
Junior surf lessons – THE ADVANCED COURSE: Here, advanced surfers learn how to improve their skills even more. Your level of surfing should be so advanced that you are able to surf green waves and feel comfortable in waves of 1,50 m height. The goal of our surf instructors is to give you the finishing touch with detailed advice and tips. Prior to the lessons you can determine your personal goals with your surf instructor and our team will do their best to help you perfect your surfing.
