Intermediate surf course at a surf school close to Morro Jable in Fuerteventura
As you are already familiar with the surfboard and have some prior knowledge of surfing, you will be moving on to the next level. During this stage of learning, you will step out of your comfort zone (paddling on foam) and face your first waves.
What do you need to learn in order to catch your first waves before they break?: paddling technique and take off skill
The most important skill to learn is proper paddling technique. We will practice proper paddling techniques, which will help you save energy, avoid muscle problems and catch more waves. This will enable you to start learning the “take off” technique.
The “take off” consists of standing up on a surfboard. It’s the fundamental skill of surfing. It allows you to experience the sensation of gliding and is crucial to catching your first waves. This is why it’s vital to have a solid foundation in paddling skills as it enables you to achieve the optimal speed required to match the direction of the wave and successfully catch it.
It’s important to note that to progress to the next level, it’s necessary to be able to execute a takeoff in a single fluid motion in order to ride the wave while standing up.
What other skills should you focus on to improve your surfing ability?: tides, currents, and energy management
It’s essential to have a good understanding of how tides and currents work. Being able to knowing the sea conditions and how to interpret them will be essential in order to progress to the next level. This knowledge will enable you to navigate and utilize them to your advantage, saving your energy in the process.
Luckily, our surf school is situated close to Morro Jable beach and other ideal locations, giving us ample opportunities to teach you about tides and currents and how to work with them to your advantage.
As mentioned earlier, effectively managing your energy is crucial.

Remember that this will depend on the sea conditions. Flexibility and time are our allies to be able to move on to the next level

Surf skate course: benefits and advantages
If you are eager to learn and practice even more, you may consider taking a surf skate course.
This type of training is extremely popular in the surfing world and many professional surfers incorporate it into their practice routines. As the name suggests, surf skating involves riding a board similar to a skateboard, but with the added element of mimicking surfing movements on land.
Surf skating offers numerous benefits, including strengthening your legs and hips, which can improve your movements and reduce the risk of injuries.
In addition to the benefits mentioned above, surf skate training offers other significant advantages:
It has been proven that this type of land-based training allows you to learn faster than in the sea.
You are not limited by time. Standing on a surfboard for just a few seconds in the water leaves us with little to no time to react. Unlike the sea, where you cannot control the pace of the waves, with a surf skate course on land, we can provide all the necessary information for quicker progress, which can be more challenging to achieve in the water. With surf skating, you can train without the time pressure imposed by the sea.
You will improve your positioning on the surfboard and increase your motor skills.
Surf skating can also help you develop greater confidence in the water, as movements on land can be transferred to the practice in the sea, giving you an edge over those who have not trained in surf skating.
