Surfing stars
Recently we have introduced skill levels that can earn you a medal, like ski stars.

1st Foam level
You surf your first foams with a softboard. You can touch the bottom, so as to be completely comfortable, to take a maximum of waves and to quickly learn a solid foundation for surfing.

Bronze Wave Level
The instructor will always be at your side in the water and will have you test more technical boards and will take you further out towards the line-up.

Silver and Gold Wave Level
You gain autonomy, learn to combine increasingly tough manoeuvres in increasingly technical waves (rollers, cut back, floaters ...).
