It was a first time for me when I tried to surf and I had absolutely amazing experience! Professional trainers, friendly people and wonderful beaches with huge green waves :)
If you are looking where to start your surfing career - it's definitely the place where you should be!

“Great SUP- lesson!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

Never tried SUPing before, so was a little nervous about the first lesson. But I found a new love! Amazing sport, which I recommend! Had an awesome instructor who was extremely helpful and fun! Not only did we get to paddle lots, but we got to learn a bunch of cool turns etc. And for a first lesson to be in such a beautiful place was more than I could ask for!

“I'll be back!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

I absolutely loved my time at extreme Algarve.... For a beginner it was just perfect... The waves were great, the instructors were so helpful and friendly and all the other surfers there were so lovely.
The camp at Casa Offshore has such a nice vibe, loved hanging out with everyone. And I loved trying out padel boarding and SUP yoga with the lovely Anastasia ... Theres so much cool stuff to do, wish I had been there for longer! But now I've got the surfing bug...I'll be back!!

“BEST surf holiday EVER!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

Amazing place and amazing team! I've stayed at the Extreme Algarve house and surfed with them twice now (in 2012 and 2014) and plan to go back again soon. The people I meet there are always planning on going back again and again. The team at Extreme Algarve are amazing and you can't help feel at home with them. It is a beautiful place to stay, with lovely rooms and nice little touches, a number of indoor and outdoor chill out areas, BBQ area (with a BBQ night once a week), yoga area, swimming pool and hot tub. Michaela, Sebastian and Denise run the place like a home and are always welcoming and helpful. It is a short walk into Lagos town, which is a beautiful place with plenty to do and see. The town beaches are stunning, the old town is pretty, and the restaurants and bars offer great variety for everyone. The great thing about staying at Extreme Algarve is that you will always meet lovely people (those who work there and those who stay) and will always have the choice of a quiet, chilled time or a really fun, lively time.

Extreme Algarve offers surfing, kite surfing and stand-up paddle boarding sessions with really friendly & professional instructors - they really are a great bunch of people! You will learn something no matter what level you are. I would also highly recommend Anastasia's pre- or post-surf yoga sessions - what a magical way to ease achy limbs and wind down! There is also a house canoe you can hire to explore the hidden beaches and grottoes around the beautiful coast. I love this place and it has to be shared! Check it out and I promise you'll agree!

I can only say: Book it! I've never been at a holiday place where I feel at home instantly. Went back for the second time this June and am already planning to visit again. It's perfect, whether you are a total surf beginner or if you already developed some skills. The team consists of the nicest people and you are sure to make amazing new friends from all around the world. BOOK NOW!
