While you can be a confident rider, surfing at a home beach or at an unknown spot are whole different stories, and even like that you still have to find that unknown spot in the first place. This is why surf guiding is a treasure offer for any intermediate or advanced surfer.
Taking a “surf tour” with a local savvy surfer, who on top of that is a certified surf instructor, is the surest way to maximize your surf experiences in a new destination. The surf guide will take you to the best and most appropriate spots, explain how they work and how to surf them.
Hence, the time you would otherwise spend searching for waves, you will actually spend in the water, enjoying the best existing conditions. Moreover, sessions with a surf guide result in a higher safety, emptier line-ups and a deeper understanding of a destination surf profile.
