Servus, I am Jonas

Headsurfcoach

Jonas our headsurf coach is the inner definition of a surfer. If you haven’t recognised it by his hair, his outfit, his huge riding home or the way he talks, you’ll lose every last doubt when you get into the water with him. A cheerful character whose heart skips a beat as soon as he approaches the rough ocean. Whether with a longboard, shortboard, softboard, skateboard or snowboard, give Jonas a board and he’s happy. The surf course reveals his talent for bringing out the joy of learning in everyone.

Nice words from our Longboard Guests

  • Juli

    Element surf is a very nice place to stay and take surf lessons at. We spent 2 weeks in this area and I took private longboard surf lessons. It was a blast! Tina, my surf instructor is a mindful, empathetic and magnificent person. She was actually my first teacher who was able to dive deep into mental coaching concerning surf blockages. I can only recommend her to everyone who might be in this particular situation, being blocked to make first steps towards the release and getting all the tools needed. I will definitely come back and jump on this path of mastery 🙏🏻

  • Maximilian

    Wonderful holiday. Great team, super surf instructors, great food, fascinating landscapes, simple but top rooms, everyone very nice, guests also super nice, you get to know each other super quickly, everyone relaxed, everyone up for a great holiday. The equipment is top, the bikes are great and the activities are very exciting.

  • Nadine

    I can only recommend it! Very competent coaches and a great team at the camp. The theory lessons also complemented the lessons in the water perfectly. We stayed at the neighbouring campsite because we couldn’t be at the camp itself due to our pawsome family member. But everything worked out wonderfully. Would love to come back again. 🙂

  • Marco

    I did my very first surf course here in August 2021 and was super excited. All my fears of the waves, the sea and the sport itself were taken away from me here. The whole team was super nice, super professional, motivated and always helpful and considerate. Everyone is welcome here, no matter what level. The surf camp is also beautifully located and invites you to do all sorts of things in the surrounding area.

  • Benjamin

    Was here in mid-July and was a mega experience. The team was super friendly and helpful. The food was very good and the accommodation was cosy. I can recommend both the tent and the room. The surf instructors are very competent and the theory lesson complemented the practical knowledge well. Entertainment is always provided and if you don’t feel like it, there are plenty of other activities to do. The location with the two nearby beaches is favourable. Super surf camp! Highly recommended!

WHY CHOOSE THIS LONGBOARD RETREAT


Intensive Longboard Coaching

For independent longboarding, key topics such as reading the surf forecast, the formation and breaking of waves are of great importance. With the help of a longboard, you are guaranteed to get plenty of waves during our retreat. In addition, understanding the theory of equipment will help you maximise your surfing experience. Our comprehensive theory will prevent bad habits from creeping into your technique. The land training in particular is ideal for holidaymakers who don’t have direct access to the sea. You will learn to read waves, catch more waves, different paddling techniques and a deeper understanding of the ocean.

Try before Buy

Before you buy expensive and possibly environmentally damaging material, we recommend that you test it. Classic longboards can differ greatly from one another. That’s why you can test different longboards and fins at our retreat to prepare yourself for your next purchase decision! Our surf shop specialises in premium longboards and fins, so we can offer the best expertise in material science.

Video analysis

We offer a video analysis for our surf school participants and surf camp guests. You will be filmed during a surf lesson and the videos will be presented afterwards using our analysis tool. Video analyses are considered the most promising method for sporting progress. To give you a different perspective on your longboarding, we will take water shots of you on the last day.

Retreat FAQ

We have selected some of the most frequently asked questions about Special Longboard Week. For further questions, please call: +49 221 29100802 (Malek).

Who is the retreat suitable for?

Longboarding is the ideal choice for holiday surfers! Thanks to their high volume, the boards offer outstanding stability when paddling and standing up. This means you can catch more waves with ease than with a soft top or shortboard. You don’t need to have top fitness, as is often required for shortboarding. Our retreat welcomes both longboard enthusiasts and beginners. Here you will find the perfect wave and a relaxed surfing atmosphere!

How much surf/longboard experience do I need?

You should be able to stand up on a surfboard and have mastered your first attempts at surfing the wave to the left or right. Longboard beginners will also feel at home here. You will learn everything else during the retreat.
Experienced longboarders can master their hang-5’s and drop-knee turns with Tina.

Do I need my own longboard and wetsuit?

We offer you a variety of classic longboards in hard and soft-top versions to suit your level. Various fins are also available for testing. If you don’t have your own wetsuit, we will also be happy to provide you with a suitable one.

How does a typical day at the retreat work?

Our days are flexible so that we can offer the best surf conditions according to the tide and forecast. A typical day starts with an optional morning yoga session, followed by a nutritious breakfast. Then there is surf theory followed by the opportunity for lunch. In the afternoon we surf. The day ends with a relaxed dinner and evening programme.

What is the maximum number of participants?

Due to a limited number of participants, we expect the retreat to be fully booked quickly. The maximum number of participants is 10.
