The formula in small groups and perfectly adapted for beginners. The teachers are very nice and professional, they give a lot of advice so that we can succeed at best! We were even able to share a small beer before returning to the center of Porto. Great session to do and redo without hesitation

Thank you for the great experience we were allowed to have. We were picked up from the meeting point on time and arrived at a beautiful beach with great waves (for beginners). There were individual sizes of wetsuits for everyone, including plus-size and petite. The surf instructors motivate everyone individually and bet on spending beer. We had a lot of fun and would love to be there again.

We had an amazing time learning how to surf for the first time! We were picked up in a convenient location in the centre of Porto and taken by mini bus to a lovely beach further south with great waves for beginners. We were then split into groups of no more than 7. This worked well because it gave the instructor time to make sure everyone caught a wave. All of the equipment provided was good quality and we were able to leave any valuables in the van while we were on the beach. Make sure you wear your swimming costume as there are no changing facilities. I would definitely do this again and I would recommend it to anyone that wants to try surfing for the first time. It is also a great opportunity for solo travellers to make friends. The photos weren’t great quality but they were sent promptly the day after the excursion. Overall, the instructors were very kind and approachable and this trip was great value for money.
