Surf Skating is a kind of skating that was invented by Californian surfers, in particular David Colley and Brad Gerlach who wanted to practice their moves during flat sea days and summer. The result is a skateboard and style of staking that tries to replicate the surfing and snowboarding ride experience. It can be useful to practice some fundamental surf tricks and maneuvers or to gain more fluidity. In El Cotillo, Fuerteventura, there is a square with a perfect flat floor and even ramps where we’ll practice and if you don’t have your own skate and protections, we have them available for rent. We only teach these lessons 1:1 or 1:2. Contact us for more information about surf skating in Fuerteventura!”
You are already an intermediate or advanced surfer – and you have your own material – but you have never surfed in Fuerteventura and/or you are not sure about where to go surfing? You can book us as a surf guide. I will show you the spots that best suit your level and I will explain to you how to enter and exit safely, what to do in order to respect locals, etiquette and nature. This service usually doesn’t mean I will come to the peak with you, but it can be arranged. Please, remember that this service is not a class. If you need surf coaching, please check out our coaching services.
As an expert in Sexuality Education and Mindful Movement, Carolina organizes monthly workshops and labs related to body consciousness and awareness. They can help improve your relationship to the body, as you will learn to deeply listen to it. Very often, we are disconnected from the body: we are not aware of what it can do, how it feels and how we feel. Society doesn’t help: there are many judgments and expectations on our bodies, based on gender, sex, shapes, race, age and abilities.
Workshops are created to facilitate body education with a scientifically accurate, anthropological and inclusive approach: suspension of judgment, participant observation, hands on exercises and collective experiences.
At NALU we highly value the importance of learning about surf culture and ocean knowledge: it’s not only a matter of respect, but also safety in the water. This is why we host monthly workshops and surf theories, sometimes with guest teachers.
As surfing has become very popular and commercial, the increasing loss of contact with its roots and core values has become an issue, and in Fuerteventura this is more and more visible. Moreover, as many people approach the ocean unaware of what it entails to practice an extreme water sport, there is a higher risk of accidents in the water. Knowing about how to read a forecast, surf etiquette, surf history and a deeper understanding of materials and equipment will make you a much more conscious surfer.
If you don’t find what you are looking for, please contact us for a personalized surf theory class to combine with a surf lesson.
As an experienced freediver and breathwork instructor, Carolina holds breathwork and dry apnea workshops for surfers and people who practice water sports. Breath awareness is a unique tool to soothe the nervous system as well as to keep you safer in the water when exposed to stressful conditions. During all our retreats, Carolina teaches the basics of this practice in order to better your experience in the water.
