Exciting nature tours
If you are looking for an extraordinary holiday where you can take your first steps in surfing while enjoying nature, this is the right place for you. Our surf camp is located very close to the Tayrona natural park, beachfront and surrounded by amazing landscapes. The program is designed for all those who want to learn to surf. No prior knowledge is required.
The 5 days course is based on training the basic techniques. First on land and in calm waters. Then, with a surfboard with more volume and capacity to float, we will practice the paddling, the control of the board and the movements of how to get up. Finally, we will gradually enter the sea to feel the energy and strength of the ocean. Under our supervision and constant support in the water, we will help you catch your first waves.
We will also deliver important information about the tides, currents and safety measures that we must take into account. As a complement to the program, we will offer other activities to explore the surroundings and to discover the rich culture of the zone.
