“Amazing, amazing, amazing vacation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

We came to Lagos cause a friend of mine wanted to do kite surfing, and I could not even imagine I would do anything except laying on the beach on this vacation! But at the very last moment I changed my decision and... voila! I tried kite surf too and had best vacation ever! We were staying at Casa Offshore for 2 weeks and those guys Sebastian, cute Denise and best kite surf instructors Martin and Stephan made a feeling of a great family. We were a part of it and we were at home. Breakfasts on rastaman terrasse, kite surf sessions, jokes, lots of fun and smiling people around, WIND!!!! Wind of happiness and change. And those delicious BBQ by Sebastian with amazing strawberry cheese cake as a dessert on mondays! I miss all of it so much. I wish I could back next time. GR8 TKS xxx :)

“Wow - what an amazing experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

My holidays in the past have mainly involved sleeping by the side of a swimming pool. I've never had such a fun and energetic holiday in my life. You can't help but get bitten by the enthusiasm bug of Sebastian and the fellow guest's at the wonderful Casa Offshore for their love of surfing, SUPing and Kite surfing.
The instructors are fantastic. Regardless of your skills or ability they take the time to make sure that you quickly get up to speed with all you need to know to get you on the waves safely and with confidence. I was amazed to see fellow group members standing up on a surf board riding a wave within minutes.
If you have ever thought about trying out one of the activities but not been sure how to get started then worry no more. Book with Extreme Algarve and let them do their thing to get you started.

“Learn to Surf, Portuguese style.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

Although I wasn't staying at the casa offshore, Seb, and Darling Denise made me feel right at home. A really great experience. The whole team are super friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. Great lessons on a beautiful beach. I was included in the dinners delicious which was a great way for getting to know the rest of the crew. Highly recommended.

“Wish I had stayed longer!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

I'm not one to write reviews but I had to in this case....Casa Offshore went so far beyond my expectations for a hostel! The house was gorgeous and had everything you could possibly want- a pool, hammock, movies, books, and so many comfy chairs after a long day surfing. Came here on my own and everyone was so friendly that I regretted only staying three days. I've been bragging to my friends about finding this place!

“My First SUP in the Algarve . . . Great Fun! :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

I was not a first time SUPer but my friends really wanted to try it out. The session was extremely reasonably priced and the location of the potential SUP sessions is what sealed the deal. Unfortunately the wind was not in our favor so we could not do the session near the caves and on the turquoise ocean water but Sebastian took us to another location on a lagoon between Lagos and Alvor, still beautiful. Sebastian was great and his instructions were very clear making it easy to learn the basics. The entire Extreme Algarve team are very friendly and helpful and would imagine that if we had stayed at casa offshore we would have had many laughs! I will see you guys again in September with more visitors! ;)
