Really enjoyed my trip to Peniche surf camp. The surf lessons with Thiago were excellent and he is a really good instructor. The people and atmosphere really make the experience. Though the food at the welcome BBQ was generally a bit average, the overall experience was a lot of fun. I would return.

The staff were very friendly and organised, emailing me the bus timetable from Lisbon beforehand and picking me up from the bus station in Peniche. I would happily... More
