Ocean side is a pretty big surfing and bodyboarding school in Las Palmas. They also have a surf shop where they sell some Snipers boards. I met the crew and we decide to organise a course with the Academy.
The day of training change one time for the waves conditions and at the end we pretty much celebrate Christmas at the beach on the 24…)
The swell was pretty big this day but the wind was perfect offshore for the beach of Las Canteras.
There was a good crew of bodyboarders from all over the island and it was really good for me to meet some new local riders..
As usual we did the first part of technical training which is super important for any level of riding..I really love this part and i always spend a lot of energy for them to understand how significant is the positioning on the board to paddle, ride, getting speed and making moves.
As the waves were pretty big it was hard for most of them to feel confortable at the line up and to catch a lot of waves. We did a first part of training on the main break and then we went of the side of the beach were the waves are a bit softer and easier to practice.
We finished the day with a bit of food, a moment to share talking all together and a game to win a Brand new Sniper Bodyboard.
Thanks to all the crew of Ocean Side and see you guys soon on the next course!!
