It is with great joy that we come to inform you that the 1st field trip of the Riviera dei Fiori swimming classes to the beach (Saturday Feb/08/2014, 9am), was an absolute success!

Professor Bruno Castello da Costa sought to explore the entire context of the tour to enlighten contents that come into play when working to expand students’ safety and autonomy levels, not only on the beach but also considering all the walk they needed to undertake to get there.

Each student was accompanied by a supervising adult (parents, mostly), who also got the chance to hear a little more about certain marine aspects that influence surfing, a few safety measures we must take in the beach environment, the physical study of the waves, and still other specific surfing-learning contents that shall be addressed in following tours.

This event was part of our strategy of gradual transition of our Utilitarian Swimming Course towards maritime swimming and surf swimming.

We would like to thank all the parents who helped us organize and carry out the tour. In case of doubts, suggestions and comments, please send us a message by filling out our contact form.
