"Practise Makes Permanent ..... Only Perfect Practice Makes Perfect"

Let's Get Your Technique Sorted

While the sun is shining it's far easier to practice the things that matter. We specialise in filming and analysis, taking slow motion video from various angles both on land and underwater. Spending time with you, analysing the results helps you see areas in your technique that might be leading to:

  1. Minor or Major Niggles and injuries.
  2. Slower performances than you're capable of.

So we focus on:

  • Assessing your Swim Technique, to begin correcting any errors.
  • Filming Your Run Technique, to eliminate flaws that could be holding you back.
  • Open water swimming skills.
  • Set Achievable goals for your upcoming season.

Group Camps

SufrZone Yoga
The landscape is often barren

January 16th 2022

We're holding our first Group camp in January (16th to 23rd), concentrating largely on technique, so you train into 2022 with better form than ever before, ensuring that as you add more volume there's less chance of injury or little niggles that would hold you back.

Our camp accommodation is at the SurfZone apartments, 50m from the beach. However, you can join the camp from any of the hotels in Santa Maria - which vary from small Boutique hotels to large All Inclusives.

At the start of the week the programme will be heavily biased towards analysing your technique, so we uncover potential issues in your swimming stroke, run technique and cycling style. From this you'll have a good understanding of what you need to concentrate on to improve.

After that we will begin building speed while you retain that same good technique.

Apart from technical elements we are here to help you begin to train more effectively. The longest cycle will be 3 hours, other rides will concentrate on specific aspects of your racing and training that will help you set a good programme when you're back in the UK.

We're introducing the option of morning Yoga this year, run by Sheena patron of Yoga Cape Verde. Sheena is the one on the roof of the Surf Zone building - right. There's an additional cost for this, which makes it open to both camp members and partners and their families.

With Tui linking directly from the UK and TAP flying from Lisbon there is a good variety of flights traveling every day to Sal. The daily TAP flight from Lisbon normally connects with an evening TAP flight from London. That means you should be able to arrive on any day you want, ready for the camp start the next day.
