Surfskating experience

I never thought about trying surfskating (actually, I didn't even know what it was!), but when the opportunity of doing it came, I gave it a try. And I must say that I don't regret even a bit: it was amazing! Having an amazing 1-hour class with 69 Slam, in Carcavelos beach, on a beautiful Sunday morning with the sun glowing on the background was simply unforgettable. The instructor was very patient and easy going, allowing it to be even a more natural and relaxing experience! He also gave very useful tips and even if this was the first class, I felt that I made a nice advance. I totally recommend this activity and 69 Slam School, hoping that soon I can try other sports too!
