Carlos and Pedro were super cool - we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Being two complete novices to surfing, we were a little concerned about what the day may hold for us, however, the relaxed mood of both instructors as well as their general vibe to make it feel as if you're surfing with a few friends, made it all enjoyable. These classes are delivered by folks who are passionate about what they do and it's not just a job - this is very evident in the way the day is scheduled. We were taken to a beautiful beach - with waves suitable for beginners - taught the principles and mentored us throughout the day. Personally, the morning was frustrating, not due to any fault of the lesson, but simply because we couldn't stand up on the boards. By the afternoon, it was a different case - energised after the lovely lunch and chill out, we were ready to hit the waves again - this time, SUCCESS - standing up and cruising the waves! It is quite simply impossible to describe in words how it feels the first time you do this - take a WOOOOOOH and multiply it by a 100! This would not have been possible without the determination of both instructors to help us learn the basics of surfing. The lesson is very hands-on and you hardly spend much time on the beach itself - which is great - but prepare to be exhausted by the end of the day - a nice bottle of Lisbon's red wine and an early night might be the only things you do for the rest of the evening!
