This was by far the BEST experience I've had in my life!! Worth every money!! Had a lot of bruises but wore them with pride haha! We were a small group and at the beginning we all got the wetsuits and then everyone got a surfboard and we went down to the beach. There was also a warm up before the fun started :) Me and my boyfriend got a short lesson on how to get on the surfboard properly etc. because it was our first time! It was an incredible feeling to stand on the surfboard and ride the waves. After the 2nd try I succeeded! Was an incredibly nice feeling! I would definitely do it again! Thanks for everything and the absolute best experience of my life!

We had a great day with João & Magdalena! They really tried to focus on establishing /improving the surfing skills of each participant and were friendly and attentive. They alao recommend us a restaurant that turned out great! Definitely recommend it.

Super Service! The teachers have tried very hard. We are absolute beginners and felt that we were in good hands. After an extensive warm-up session and instructions, we went into the water. Great fun and absolutely recommendable! Keep it up!

I had a great time, very good surf instructors and beautiful spot, not a big group, would recommend

Hotel pickup went well. The experience was worth every penny. Great guides and lots of fun.
