Conditions for begginers are just great, water temperature is awesome, it is quite uncrowded and the waves are perfect for learning (without having to neceserily ride white water) Unlike other activities this can be done in the rain. -EDM-


They have a maximum duration of 3 hours, depending on the fitness and basic skills of the trainee to learn strategy, technique, and establish security rules. We have a private boat witch will take you to the a wave that is very suitable for begginers. We will provide you a wet suit and a soft top board between 8 and 9 foot long (suitable for each person). In case that another type of board is required, we have a large variety of them for any need. Local and bilingual instructors are part of the training team. When the class come to its end, we will take the gear back while you enjoy a delicious fruit juice at Bibi's on the Beach. We've set out two training sessions, at 9:00 am and 3:00 pm Bocas' wave season goes from November to April, and also during July. The rest of the time the sea remains mostly flat but we can expect some surprises due to storms. Therefore, don't hesitate asking for advice even out of wave seasons.
