Olá. I am Ruben but my friends call me "ceguinho" :) Born and raised in Madeira, I love to share my culture with people who visit our Island. I am friendly and passionate about big wave surfing and Stand up Paddling. I work as a surf and SUP instructor in Clube Naval São Vicente surf school. I have my own surfboard workshop and I am proud to be the first Madeiran shaper. I have been competing since I was a kid, first started with windsurfing, surfing and some years ago on Stand Up paddling. I won some regional and national awards all this past years and have been training on the most higher competition levels with participations on the national teams and international competitions like European and World championships. check out my insta @ Ruben_ceguinho

I can highly recommend this course for beginners! Ruben is a super friendly tutor who is actually spending a lot of time and motivation for you to stand up and „ride your first wave ;)“. I felt really comfortable and would book his class anytime again.

Ruben was very welcoming. He is a great instructor! First time surfing and managed to get up on the board! Took us to two different surfing areas! Overall a very nice experience! Will be back for sure!!

This experience was great! Ruben took care to choose the best location and went through a thorough warm-up and safety talk before we got started. He took care to tailor the lesson to our skills, since being beginners it was daunting at first but Ruben took care to be with us in the water and keep us calm whilst we waited for the perfect wave. He was a great teacher and we would definitely recommend taking a surf lesson with him!

I went surfing with Ruben, he did really care about finding the right spot and conditions for my Level. The Board he gave me was in very good condition and fitted my Level as well. He told me everything you Need to know about the spot and In the water he read the Waves really good and told me where to paddle to cach the waves.
