On arrival a quick phone call and Tim our instructor appeared at our hotel to whisk us off to be fitted with wetsuits and equipment then off to the lagoon .
A full safety brief and kit check then the mystery of flying the kite which seemed impossible ! After our four days of fantastic and patient instru tion a miracle happened and we both rode the board . Can't recommend Extreme Algarve enough and will certainly be having more hours with them next year .

We booked a whole 10 days of surfing as a group and the teachers did everything to get the most out for us. We progressed at different speeds but there was always somebody who showed us how to improve.
The gear is in very good condition and all you need to start and the trainers are very fun and open people who invested a lot to make sure we had the best time possible.

My girlfriend and I bought the 5 day beginner lessons in kitesurfing for early June. We had Tim as our instructor who was great! Very friendly, calm, encouraging and knowledgeable as an instructor answering all our questions about gear, locations and the area. He was also really helpful and even took us back out on a day when the wind forecast was wrong and we couldn't go out in the morning. The lessons were well thought out and made us feel very comfortable before moving onto the next step. By the end of the week, we were both riding which was better than we were hoping so were very happy. Would highly recommend Extreme Algarve for anyone wanting to give kitesurfing a go. Thanks again for a fantastic week!

We booked the full kitesurfing course for my girlfriend and we did not regret it! It was a wonderful 5 day experience, with an amazing teacher, Tim, who explained the theory and guided every step of the way patiently and professionally. A special thanks for the willingness to help us with our tight schedule (wind allowing of course) on the last day of the course, owing to Tim's kindness. We would definitely book with Extreme Algarve again in the future!

I was picked up 5 minutes walk from where I was staying in Lagos, really convenient. We went to a local beach and the swell was perfect for beginners. Ben the instructor was brilliant. He's really friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. I felt like I was in good hands, always given tips when I needed them but also given the space I needed to practice. Although the weather wasn't great this was the perfect time of year to come. The swell was perfect and the beach was quiet meaning there was lots of room to catch waves. Couldn't recommend this surf school enough.
