El Porto Surf School focuses on providing a working knowledge of your equipment and surroundings in the ocean. This is not a wave centric surf school, we are here to provide you with essential foundational knowledge that most beginners never get to hear until its too late! You are not here to catch 40 waves on day one! Setting realistic expectations for growth in the sport of surfing is essential. We will teach you critical water safety and board handling techniques that are essential to operating safely in the line up. Our students leave with an applicable set of skills that help them to develop their passion for surfing safely and respectfully.
