I certainly recommend Tiago to anyone who wants to spend a good journey learning or improving his surfing skills. We had to learn from scratch, and I don’t think someone could do it as much as Tiago did in a very short amount of time. Just don’t think about it, book asap and you won’t regret it ))

Very nice lesson ! Because it is a private lesson for you or maximum one other person, he has time to look how he can improve your skills and and help you individually. We had a lot of fun and the price was also very good !

Lovely little beach to practice your surfing skills on. I'm a complete beginner and it was great to have full Tiago's attention as opposed to some surfing schools that will put you in a big group. Remember flip flops for the walk from the changing station. After your class I would recommend to walk down the beach promenade to enjoy the views and the atmosphere.

We had never surfed before and Tiago was a really nice teacher! He supported and took care of us while we were following his advices to surf better. We did a warm up and then he taught us the technique on the sand. He provided us with surf suits and the surfboards. It was an unforgettable experience.
