What you'll do

Lesson Structure:

Part 1-Land Lesson: Lessons start on the beach with thirty minutes of instruction and practice.

Students learn techniques for paddling, standing, falling, dodging and selecting waves along with surfer's etiquette, stretching and much more.
Part 2-Water Surf Lesson: After students have learned the techniques on land, we move into the ocean!! During this time the instructor will push and coach students into waves, tell students what they are doing right, or wrong so they are surfing on their own by the end of the lesson.

Aldo & I met each other in the UK at the popular surfing destination Newquay. Aldo who has been surfing since the age of 12 taught Sarah how to surf and she fell instantly in love with it. They decided they wanted to make surfing their life.

They decided to set up a surf camp but knew they wanted to head somewhere warmer and wanted a new adventure. So in 2006 they bought a camper van and travelled the entire west cost of Europe to find the perfect surf spot surfing all along the way.

When they arrived at Arrifana they knew they had struck gold. The beach was uncrowded the waves were pumping and the weather was hot. They opened the surf lodge in the Summer of 2007 and have never looked back. Aldo is a great and passionate surf coach and Sarah inspired by her love of food offers hearty homemade meals to the hungry surfers.

We went twice we enjoyed it so much. Communicating with Aldo is very easy. Victor was an excellent instructor. Very friendly and gave great tips. It’s a very chilled out experience in a great location.

Because the other instructor having a private class and i being alone, i ended up having a private session with Aldo for no extra cost. The lesson was great value and i ended up learning a lot. After that i booked 6 more lessons until it was time to leave Portugal. Do check out their website as they also offer accomodation, which would have been a great option if i knew beforehand.

Did the lesson whit 'Lourenço' (not sure if you write it like that in Italian) and it was superb! He had deep knowledge and after a quick introduction procedded to put us on the water and help us fixing our positions and balance in order for us to be able to surf some waves, even doe it was our first time(did it whit mt brother in law) we still managed to get up and surf alot of waves! The lesson had a total of about 2,30h and in between the warm-up and all the surfing I think the lesson was very well balanced! I recommend if you are looking forward to try to surf!

Super Surfkurs. Ich hatte eine Einzeleinweisung, da alle Teilnehmer schon einmal surfen waren. Ich fand es sehr gut erklärt und die Surfleiter waren motiviert

Very nice and fun! It was our first time so we can't say we really learnt how to surf, but with the teacher's suggestion we were able to stand up on the board and master some little wave! I appreciated that, even though there were other people in the lession (who were doing a proper course of several days), us first timers had our own instructor to really guide us in what we were doing. Higly recommend!
