Typical learning of each lessons

Here is an overview of the knowledge acquired at each lesson

This “typical” chronology is here to give you a through line

It can be different to adapt to the meteo conditions and to your level

In order to go away from other users of the beach and practice in a quite place, each spot has  a little access walk (20min maximum walk depending on the spot)

The lesson begins when we arrive on the beach, and ends when we leave the beach.

Each lesson includes a security briefing before the practice, and a debriefing at the end on what each student learned and what he needs to work on in his progression
