Workshop Summary:

It is in the tourism sector that surf education in Portugal has had its greatest growth and development. However, it appears that in most cases, little attention is paid to the development and technical evolution of this audience, with the market still very focused on the phase of absolute initiation. In this workshop, there will be a brief introduction to the essential pedagogical concepts and techniques to guide training with tourists towards greater technical evolution and for the transition between beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.
