About Progressive Turns lessons

The perfect step towards Intermediate sessions

Progressive Turns offers perfect point-break style waves with enough power to be enjoyed by surfers on all craft. A little bit bigger and steeper take-off than Cruiser, it’s the perfect wave if you are looking to start transitioning to Intermediate and beyond. It’s also an ideal session if you want to work on your technique with a ​​​​​​​consistent shape and a rippable pocket.

Your Lesson kicks off 30 minutes prior to the session. This is the land-based component with important skills to prepare before hitting the waves!
