What you'll do

Have you never surfed before or only a few times? Then this is the experience you have been looking for!

This outdoor activity is designed for adults in SMALL GROUPS, from total beginners to intermediate surfers.
Individualized attention is crucial to learning anything new and surfing is no different!

Be taught in a fun, SAFE and encouraging way to catch your first waves with the support and tips you need to become a better surfer.

I will be waiting for you at the meeting-point to start the experience. The session begins with a short warm-up and an explanation about all surf techniques: paddling, catching waves, standing on the board and riding waves properly. You can expect a clear exemplification of every step you'll need to take in order to get the most of it. Before getting into the water, I'll also provide you instructions about safety procedures and surf etiquette. During your experience you'll probably be able to stand on the board, but above all, you'll enjoy an amazing great energy provided from the ocean and the sun, as well feel inspired by the moment!

At the end we can hang around and soak up their surfing atmosphere.

*I'LL ALSO PROVIDE FREE PHOTOS OF YOUR EXPERIENCE ;)

Where you'll be

Due to COVID-19, we're applying additional safety measures, such as avoiding the main CROWDED beach with NO of waves during the high season. We'll search for better condition spot nearby (beach transfers included).

Je n’aurais pas pu rêver mieux comme première expérience de surf que celle avec Joâo. Il a vraiment fait en sorte de nous mettre à l’aise du début à la fin de l’expérience, en nous aidant, en nous laissant de l’autonomie tout en étant vigilant à la sécurité de tous pendant les trois heures 🏄🏿‍♂️

We had a real taste of surfing. Super friendly, but professional host. He was watching every participant, it felt safe. We were surfing for around 2 - 2,5 hours plus changing and instructions. You get pics as well. The next day aches as a bonus:)

Joao is the host that everyone would like to have. He's very helpful, professional and funny and he made us feel comfortable. It was our first surf experience and it was great thanks to Joao 'S teachings. We paid 35€ per person and in the price was included also the photos made by Joao with his Go-Pro. I really suggest this experience to everyone who wants to try a surf experience in Porto. Emma, Beatrice and Rachele

Loved spending the morning getting to know João and getting to surf for the first time! Couldn't have been friendlier, patient and more welcoming, a great experience all in all.
