For Ocean lovers, ready to learn how to Surf,leaded by a fantastic and very concerned team. Good Accomodation, fantastic atmosphere, in a little piece of Land called Baleal, nearly paradise ! It is obviously the place to be in Baleal to learn Surf.

Very cozy camp with all the comforts of home, the staff is very friendly and provides prompt and professional service. The surf lessons are very well taught and amazingly efficient, from learning the very basic's to going over video of your technic and making corrections. so awesome! You will definately leave this camp a better surfer!

Peniche-Baleal is a great place for surfing, with all kinds of different waves depending on your level and the weather conditions. Staying at Maximum, only 200 m from the beach and lots of cool bars was a great experience. The staff is so friendly, and the surf instructors always give their best to take you to the right spots and... More

Visited this surfcamp few months ago with two friends. We hired a course for advanced and as they had a very large volume of people we added them to the intermediate group, and they did not have enough teachers. Classes were bad because we got bored and gave us the feeling of not learning anything because they were intermediate classes.... More

hello, thanks for you review. what i understood was that you booked an andavanced course and then were downgraded to intermediates. this could be of security reasons, for example when the conditions are to advanced for somebody's skills. we dont want to see somebody getting in trouble in the ocean. the coaches than decide in which group you will be...

hello, i'm really surprised about this story. first of all our surf instructors are all licensed coaches with a lot of knowledge and experience. so this is absolutely impossible that we send our students in dangerous situations without a coach. second of all if an accident is happening, during and outside of the classes, we bring you straight away to...

I didn't actually stay at the camp, just took surfing lessons there, hence my 4/5 as I can't rate the accomodations. The staff and teachers were really nice and motivating. The boards and wetsuits were in excellent conditions. They drove us to a different spot every morning. Their teachers come from all around the globe - Portugal, Australia, Germany, which... More
