Taylor made surf vacations are allso available. Our experienced and qualified surf instructors will take you to the next level on surfing.

Good surf school, I visited in winter but they sorted me out with a great coach who was happy to take me to wherever the waves were best for my level. Good equipment (Xcel and Billabong wetsuits and range of boards). Ask for Hugo if you want good coaching and a laugh while you're in the water.

It was my second time learning surf, my first in Portugal. Service, equipment and teaching were great. Marta and her team take the time to explain and also to correct you while you are on the water. I highly recommend to go and surf with Freeride surfcamp ;) Additionally, that area is just amazingly beautiful!

I have attended this school in Sagras and can only say that it was fabulous! I improved enormously and the teachers were great. Marta who runs Freeride is also a great surfer and all the teachers know their subject well. Go and enjoy!

Attached to the Memmo Baleeira total where we stayed is the Freeride Surf school. If you are learning to surf for the first time, or need some more advanced instruction or a personal guide to the best waves in the Sagres region, this is the team for you. A very approachable attitude, with a great balance between fun and focused... More

Our main purpose for booking a surf holiday was to entice our 12 year old son into surfing, so my husband booked himself and our son onto a one week surf package with Memmo Baleeira Hotel and Freeride surfcamp. However, in the end I had to step in and take the lessons as my husband was recovering from a broken... More

if you looking for surf lessons these are the guys to go to. Really friendly, good instructors, and you get to surf at the best beach in the area. Our teenage kids loved it, and so did I, even managing to stand a few times!

Two of our children had a 3 day course with Freeride and thoroughly enjoyed it. Friendly and helpful and nice location at Cordama.

Marta and Nadine ran a professional and inspiring outfit that made everyone feel comfortable and have fun. Teens and mature adults improved their skills and developed an appetite for the sport. At ~50€ for 3 hours (not including the 1 hour break for lunch ), it seemed a rare bargain in this resort town.
