The bodyboard is a kind of shortened surfboard. In contrast to the surfboard, it is not driven standing but lying or on the knees (drop knee). With its different kind of waves, Madeira is an excellent place to learn this sport or to gain more experience in it.

Bodyboard is still a rather unknown sport in Central Europe, whereas in Spain and Portugal this sport has already many followers. On Madeira there are plenty of bodyboarders who use the different waves to perfect their skills.
The course takes place in Porto da Cruz. Here the waves are relatively low and there is easy access to the sea. After a theoretical briefing (rules and security) you go to the sea, where the right "riding on the waves" is practised.
There is a maximum of 6 people in each group, so that a very individual course can take place. In addition to first-class lessons, there will be a lot of fun.
Procedure: Theoretical briefing (rules & security) - warming uop - practical class
