“Great surfing, excellent teaching”
Reviewed 11 April 2012

Booked a five day surfing course.
Marta is the owner of the school and did the lessons herself, sometimes together with a second teacher.

We visited several beaches. The last two days we had a pleasant stay in the beach-cabin during the break and after the lessons.

Key words: personal attention and feedback, experienced teacher, professional. She is a respected member of the Sagres Surf Scene, that makes it even a little more special.

“unforgettable surf lessons”
Reviewed 6 December 2011

For my holidays I wanted to leave Switzerland and learn to surf for three weeks in the Algarve, at the beaches around Sagres. To start with surfing I decided to take some lessons in a surf school. A french couple advised me, based on their good experiences, to go to the freeride surfcamp & school at the Cordoama beach, wich is probably the most beautiful beach I've seen during my trip. For 3 days, I learned sometimes in small groups, sometimes alone, the basics of surfing. Marta, our surf teacher, showed us all the important moves and tricks a very patient way and answered all our question with her know-how. Marta taught us as well everything about security of surfing , wich is, in my opinion, the most important thing for a beginner like me. After the 3 days I was able to surfing in small waves at the cordoama beach. What I heard from other surf students they were also more than satisfied with the Freeride surfcamp & school. So I am already thinking to go back to Portugal, to the Algarve for more surfing!

“Work hard, play hard, relax hard!”
Reviewed 1 September 2011

Stayed at Sagres for a week and enjoyed surfing lessons at Freeride Surfcamp! Very nice and professional surf instructors. Brought us to the beach every day and we could return directly after the surfing lessons or stay to enjoy a few beers. Really something to recommend!

“Great Surf School”
Reviewed 16 July 2011

Husband and son went to surf school for 2 days. Easy to register and very good value. Thank you to Marta and her fellow instructors who were very patient with beginners. Taken to beach in National Park which was beautiful (if a little windy). I sunbathed while watching them in action. Great instruction and a lot of time spent in the water and at least 3hrs in school each day. Look out on hotel website (Memmo) as sometimes surf packages available occasionally.
