Session Levels


This session is perfect for progression and mastering the basics. It has slightly larger waves than in the beginner course, and you need to be able to get up and catch waves by yourself. Only foam boards are allowed.


You’ll experience more powerful waves than in Waikiki. Therefore, it is essential to master the take-off for this session. Perfect to practice generating speed and perfect your turns. Or just to have fun freely on the waves!


Slightly faster than the malibu Sessions, these waves are fun and perfect. The take-offs are steeper and need to be dealt with confidently. These waves are well suited for funboards, fishes, mid-lengths, and longboards.


This session offers a range of waves with different profiles, ideal for all types of turns. It is aimed at experienced surfers who absolutely master take-off and turns and are at ease on more than one-meter waves.


A quick take-off on a higher and more powerful wave offers various steep sections for maneuvers. The first session with a series of small barrels at the end! It is also an already exciting session for all the bodyboarders.
