Super surfing class ! I did many surfing class in Portugal but Raphael's way of teaching surf is really personalised! He managed to help you in the water with his fins without surf board during 2.5 hours! The quality of the equipment is fantastic compare to many other surfing class I did in Portugal. I strongly recommend !

Raphael is very nice and knowledgeable about surfing. Also, he's a genuine enthousiast of the sport. I asked to reschedule the class, but he asked to change my chedule so we could catch the only waves of the weekend. I'm so glad I did this, as you can tell they now a lot about the conditions here. Also, there's not a lot of theory involved, just some set training on the beach and straight into the waves. I would definitely come back again when I can!
