Great surf is a recipe of a lot of elements coming together perfectly – swell direction, tide, wind, time of day, and season are all factors. Local knowledge is key to scoring great waves on vacation. Our experienced guides will not only show you the best waves around, they will also help you take your surfing to the next level. School of the World offers surf intensive programs and even special balance training workshops for our experienced and returning surfers. We are also planning some surprises for 2012 such as a special surfboard shaping workshop.
