Choose the right surf camp for your age

If you are someone in their mid 30, you might be uncomfortable to be surrounded by noisy teens. Make sure to do research beforehand and choose the right camp for your surf holidays.
Choose your destinations
If you are a total beginner, you don’t want to head to beaches with strong, high rolling waves. Gentle waves is a must if you just start your way in surfing. Portugal and Spain has lots of beginner-friendly waves on most of their beaches.

Bali is absolutely paradise for beginner surfers. Almost all beaches is available for beginner—yet still have their own characteristics. Other than surfing, Bali has more to offer—ride fields, beautiful beaches, volcanic mountain, and immersive culture which make it even perfect for surf holidays!

This way, you will have basic ideas on about surfing—its techniques, etiquettes, differences between surfboards, and basic knowledges about the sea. Knowing this will help you pick up the actual lessons faster. You’ll know what you are doing and what it takes to be better.
