“Highly rated!! Best surf instructors out there.”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

These guys rock! We went on a 3 day surf trip with this school recently (31-Aug to 2-Sep) and these guys took us through the learning curves of surfing. The more advanced folks got to learn the advanced riding skills riding big waves under their close supervision and the beginners learned to ride the breaking waves.

They took us out to the beaches based on surf conditions, professional, and invested in our learning to surf. One of our fellow surfers rode along the side of the wave) pipeline style by day 3, first time she'd advanced that far.

These guys are good. Would do it again in a heart beat!!!

“Ricardo rocks!”
Reviewed 2 September 2012

Our family discovered the hard way that the only things to do in Sagres are surf or sail. So we gave this a shot and loved it! My tweenage kids got the hang of it pretty quickly. The bigger test of the instructors' skill was whether or not they could get a middle-aged man like myself to be vertical in the surf. After a careful warm up and thoughtful instruction, Ricardo got me surfing my first morning. And pretty much everyone else in our group as well.

A very attentive staff, mindful of everyone's safety. And they just make the whole experience fun for everyone.

“Future Surfing School, Western Algarve”
Reviewed 19 August 2012

Cracking tuition from some very cool surf dudes on Amado Beach. We booked the classes through the Martinhal Resort near Sagres. The instructors were well organized and enthusiastic and were experts at dealing with our two novice teenage surfers. We will be signing up again next summer.
