Bungee Technique
Since the the Surf Center’s inception in El Médano we have had to develop a unique teaching methods due to our shore break and ocean swell. This is how it works:
Elastic rope connects the students‘ board with the instructors‘ board.
The instructor keeps the students‘ board on course.
The student can concentrate on maintaining their balance.
The student doesn’t get sudden pulls on their board (which would happen with a non-alastic rope).
Drifting downwind is avoided.
Direct assistance with turning even in the most difficult conditions.
Unbelievable progress in a very short time span.
