At Diego de Alzaa we teach you and introduce you to the world of paddle surf on the beaches of Denia , although we also have experience on the other side of the world: in Australia.
There are several ways to practice it: in flat sea , catching the waves, races and crossings. To learn, the best thing is to climb the board with the calm sea and, little by little, learn techniques from the other modalities.
Paddle surfing is a sister activity to surfing that consists of paddling standing on a board with the help of paddles. It is a relaxed and very original activity, but at the same time it allows exercising the whole body.
The new surfers must know and understand the environment : how the sea works and how the waves form. The types of beaches and the materials to be used (types of boards and wetsuits).
Other issues to consider are knowing how to choose the best spot suitable for weather conditions and the level of rowing we have, knowing how to recognize entry and exit channels to the sea for the safe practice of paddle surfing, and something very important is knowing the rules, priorities and values of this sport and incorporating the pop up techniques on the board.
The final objective is to ensure that each surfer is an athlete committed to the philosophy and culture of the sea , independent in the water, who surfs with good technique and is able to live with nature without destroying it.
We teach weekly courses of Stand Up Paddle on the Marineta Casiana beach in the city of Alicante, divided into groups of children under 12 years of age or older on schedule from 10:30 to 12 hours.
For every 6 students there will be a specialized monitor that will teach you movements and postures such as PRONO's, lying face down on the board or moving forward in the water practicing different paddling and paddling techniques. But we will also teach you how to observe the sea, how waves are formed and how to take advantage of them, how weather conditions affect currents ... but above all, you will learn to enjoy a sport that has managed to conquer thousands of people.
From Ocean Academy, the mission of our classes is to transmit the most important values of surfing, such as:
-Care and preservation of the environment
-The companionship between the different people that coincide when practiced
-The respect to other cultures
-Knowing to be
-The solidarity being
This way of understanding surfing is the basis of the surfing experience , where from the first minute students immerse themselves in a world of waves, travel, seas and oceans and what matters most to a surfer: the enjoyment of freedom.
Learning this surfer culture leads them to:
- Respect nature, where our means of advancement and energy source “the wave” is born.
-A healthy eating that keeps us fit to face our challenges and keep us hours and hours in the water.
-Travel in the eternal search for the perfect wave and discover new culture, customs and flavors
Our goal is to train surfers and athletes committed to simple life. The style of Ocean Academy is fun, fun and technical. The school uses the best and most appropriate equipment for the learning of children and adults according to the ages and levels of each person.
On the beaches of Denia you have the option of pointing your children to a surfing and paddle surfing campus , more specifically on the beach of the Marineta Casiana , a fabulous place for children for their safety and the good weather they usually do.
The first step of the campus classes is to learn the basic techniques of paddle surfing in the flat sea to stand up and catch the trick to this sport.
The second part is the technique to catch the waves with the surfboard. The balance is essential and the exercises to practice are based on training that balance to advance correctly.
The boards we use are inflatable , safe to practice in the sand on the beach and then in the calm sea. We even have a Big SUP table with which to have fun times with other children.
While they learn to handle the boards, they will also know how the sea, the wind and the waves move, something essential for surfing, besides we teach them to respect the environment and have a conscience with nature, typical of the surfing philosophy .
The monitors are bilingual and the hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. .
Don't forget your swimsuit, towel and lunch!
During the holidays your children, from 6 years old , have the opportunity to continue learning and improving their knowledge of English with our Paddle Kids and English camp.
We will be in the Marineta Casiana Beach of Denia, which we have chosen for its excellent conditions for the safety of the activity we do in the water. We will meet every day in the booth that belongs to the Nautical Activities Center located in the Marina of Dénia. We will do it during the summer weeks, from Monday to Friday, from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
We encourage the participation of all attendees in this program making it fun for you while your English is reinforced. During these days they will learn the main bases of the stand up paddel , achieving important objectives for children who gain autonomy and immerse themselves in a new sport.
English will work with classes daily in a classroom enabled for this with native teachers . These professionals will come from English Studio Denia, a specialized academy, who will chat in the Anglo-Saxon language about surfing and issues related to the sea, leaving the classic atmosphere of traditional classes.
