The academy is a challenging and exciting experience where you learn new skills and make new friends along the way.
To surf at the intermediate level requires the ability to ride waves and perform manoeuvres in the correct section with correct balance. Most importantly, it requires an ability to read the waves and how the elements and conditions alter their state. A general knowledge of the ocean and surf, hazards and conditions at different types of surf breaks are all important factors to give a holistic understanding of intermediate level surfing. No wave is the same. No surf break is the same. Conditions can change constantly. This knowledge and skill can only be acquired by time in the surf and practice. Depending on your ability, ocean and surf knowledge and experience, it takes approx. 500 – 1500 hours to be able to surf at the intermediate level.
