Having done surf camps before we decided to try our first one in Portugal, communication and booking was very simple and easy. Overall the surfing and instruction was great, we were lucky with the weather and had a great time. However there were just too many people on the camp, over 100 so it was always a queue for food...

I really enjoyed my time at Maximum Surfcamp last week! Surf instructors were great, although some of them didn't speak english. I have surfed once before, and I definitely learned a lot more during my visit at Maximum. I really liked that the surfing equipment was available also outside the lessons. The whole Maximium crew was friendly. Special thanks to...

I enjoyed the camp very much. The location was great, and surfing lessons were really well organized. Waves were really nice for a beginner like me, and made it possible to learn really fast. Most of the staff were really friendly and fun, but for example my surf teacher did not speak English very well (only Germany), so I did...

I can recommend this place a 100%. Good surfing lessons, the crew helps you when you need something out of the ordinary, you can feel they like what they do and they are happy that you are their guest. I surely had a great time, although or even because of traveling alone you easily get in touch with other guests....

Overall very happy and satisfied. Mostly because the group of people we met were great! On the plus side: Really liked the surfing teachers. They were great guys and could teach us intermediates well. Of course it is up to you how much you learn, but if you listen and do what they say you'll improve quickly. I liked the...
