The teachers are so funny and when you are out on the waves they are klappning and screaming GOOD! You don't need anything but your swimming cloths. There is a nice restaurant/bar only 10 meturs away, there is good lunch and snacks. Best place ever.

My wife and I took out our 11 year old twins to Portugal and we decided to try surfing. We had the best experience with awesome instructors. We would recommend it to anyone interested in learning to surf in Portugal.

Very good place to surf with friendly staff. We were asked to wait an hour because they had overbooked, and to call it a "school". All and all, great experience and would recommend.
