Surfing

Surfing is an enjoyable sport, great for the body and the mind. Surfing is done out in the open air of the sea and brings balance into our intense lifestyle. Surfing is not only for the professionals, it is accessible to each and every one of us! There is a surfer hiding in all of us, but not everyone has the courage to set him free.

The Gazebbo club invites you to learn and specialize in an extreme water sport. The lessons are suitable for everyone from the age of 7 to the age of 80, for both sexes and at any level, even advanced competitive levels.

The classes are held with a guide throughout the year, either one-on-one or in groups. Times are determined in accordance with the participants and the sea conditions.

The benefits of surfing class and what you gain from it

The surfing class and the sport of surfing in general, builds and develops the surfer both physically and mentally. Surfing is an aerobic sport that involves a variety of muscles at once, stretches the muscles and strengthens the core muscles.

Surfers who exercise regularly improve their balance and thus increase their stability. Figuratively speaking, in many ways surfing simulates our lives. As with surfing, we have to wait patiently and carefully choose the best wave for us to ride. In the event we fall off the surfboard, we must quickly regain our composure and attempt to catch another wave.

Often we come across currents and waves crashing down on us while we paddle into the sea (the surfing area). In such instances we teach the children to time the waves and choose the fastest and most convenient way of getting to the surfing area.

While surfing, us surfers must read the wave and currents and respond quickly in order to best ride it. This improves the surfer’s speed of response.Surfing is an extreme sport that helps to release energy and tension, thus contributing to a feeling of relaxation and relief.

* It is highly recommended for hyperactive children.

Want to explore new beaches?

The Gazebbo club is proud to present – “Surf Safari”. It is over 6 years now that we are going out on a Surf Safari each summer break.

The Surf Safari is a surfing trip on the coast of Israel in which we explore distant shores in search of the perfect wave. The safari is an opportunity for participants to experience a life of surfing from dawn till dusk, and get the full surf trip experience (like abroad). We’ll discover and explore new beaches, watch and learn their behavior, identify currents and learn how to get up on the surfboard in different situations.

All-around surf vibe: • Playing guitars on the beach • Campfires at sunset • Watching surf movies

We go on the safari in a luxurious bus with plasma screens, watching surf movies throughout the bus ride. A professional photographer will document the trip so that everyone gets a cool video clip to take back home. A team of experienced and responsible guides will look after the safety of the participants, strengthen their surfing skills and improve their performance. The trip is 3 days (2 nights) long and children get 4 meals a day. Travel destination varies depending on the location where the best waves are at the time.
