What you'll do

This beginner lesson is a safe, personalized introduction to Peniche waves, a beach break. Pedro knows all the spots and the waves so well that he can guide you to the perfect spot for your ability. There you will catch the best waves that the huge groups in surf camps will miss!

Our lessons at Supertubos start with a warm up. We then explain the current surf conditions and the surf spot. For first-time surfers we make sure to demonstrate proper pop-up techniques on the board. Once in the water, the adventure begins! We will help you choose waves and may give you a push if it might help. Surfing is one of the best feelings that you will have in your life and you will know what we mean as soon as you start catching waves and sharing great moments with mother nature on the big atlantic ocean! After the lesson we may stop at nearby bar/restaurant for a cold drink or snack.

Although we accept groups of up to 10 guests, we want all to have a customized experience. This means a second instructor will join groups larger than five.

Where you'll be

We will be in the heart of one of the best waves in the world, which is also known as "the Portuguese Pipeline." It is Europe's best surf spot and every year revives the World Surfing League's World Championship Tour, which takes place at the beach and showcases the best pro surfers in the world. It is also an excellent place for beginners with several gentle waves ending on a sandy beach.

Wonderful experience. It was our first lesson and Pedro showed us everything from scratch and made me feel very welcome. We managed to get many waves laying and then a couple of them standing since it was our first interaction. We had a very good conversation and he genuinely cared about every minute of the experience. I'd recommend to everyone!

It was a huge pleasure to meet with Pedro and Rita. They are such a nice people, so passionate about surfing, so friendly. We had lessons with Pedro himself - he is a professional with a lot of teaching skills. I was impressed by his positive attitude and patience for us - the beginners (he even noticed during lessons that I don’t feel comfortable walking between the seaweed and we change the spot, so that I could focus fully on the surfing). We will definitely be back and take more lessons! I’m strongly recommending this experience, it’s definitely worth it! 😁

I had a great time during the surf lesson and all the explanations with Pedro. We were a small group and that helped to learn better. It was great to be in the sea!

Surfing with Pedro and Rita was incredible! It was our first surf experience and we were welcomed so warmly into their home/guest house! Once by the ocean, Pedro showed himself as an absolute pro with a lot of knowledge and great tips. He made surfing not only “easy” but incredibly fun! Thank you Pedro, for helping us love the surf! When my husband had an accident, Pedro immediately was able to administer aid and he knew first aid. All is well now, especially thanks to Pedro’s great care for us. Would absolutely recommend, you will not regret learning to surf with Rita and Pedro!
