As our name suggests we are focused in the future, in preparing our students for the future, especially on their sports training level but also in their social and environmental training.With us you’ll have the opportunity to learn how to surf or how to use your bodyboard with qualified surf instructors. In a small group we surf every day at various beaches (surf spots) on both coasts. Our teachers are qualified and locals. They are certified by the Portuguese Surfing Federation (FPS).We teach Having fun (Surf Lesson)in small groups with a maximum of 8 students per teacher. Each surf lesson has a duration of at least 90 minutes in the water and 30 minutes warm up and theory. Surf Day trips include always two surf lessons, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. The surf spots are chosen depending on the tide, swell and wind conditions and of course depending your surf skills. Our certified instructors have local knowledge, they drive safely and give you a professional surf briefing on the spot. The surf instructors are always with you in the water, giving you tips and hone your surfing technique.
