We had the 1 day surfing lesson and it was amazing! The meetup point was really crowded and our coach Joao took us to a more secluded beach with better waves. He was extremely patient with us, very friendly and very knowledgeable. He even gave us tips for the reminder of our trip in Portugal. We will definitely take up surfing again. Would recommend!

Absolutely amazing! Joao is super experience, patient and talented trainer. We've booked together with my girlfriend, both of us had lots of fun (actually we liked surfing so much that we've immidietly booked another lesson for next day :)) and made some good progress - a lots of rides with the wave already during the first hour. Joao is not only a good instructor but is also well prepared, so do not be afraid of cold water - with the wetsuits you can stay there easily for more than 2 hours and you can be sure that the board will be well selected to fit your needs. You can also count on some amazing picruters that will be made directly from the water that will be avaliable for you to download directly after the lesson. Last but not least, Joao is super cool guy and time soent together was a pure pleasure. We will be definately back!

It was the first time surfing for my friends and I. João was an excellent coach! He explained everything very well and took the time to make sure we knew how to behave on the board once in the water. He also coached us individually, to make sure everyone got the chance of improving, while the rest of us could practice on our own. We would recommend this experience, we couldn't imagine it being any better. We will definitely keep surfing!
