“Very good spot to learn Kitesurf and practice SUP”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

I met EOLIS 3 years ago, and learned kitesurfing for 2 years. The spot is perfect to initiate in kitesurf: they have a very long beach, the weather is very good, the water isn't cold and there aren't too much waves. Also, you can practice SUP in ria Formosa, another beautiful place at Cabanas. Many people with high-level of kitesurfing go to this spot too.
The teachers are professionals and very friendly. Sandra speaks many languages (english, spanish, french and portuguese, of course).
Cabanas is a familiar village, perfect to stay with friends or with the family.
I recomended it!!.

“The best place to learn kitesurf”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

I learned to kitsurf at EOLIS and have been kitesurfing in Cabanas for 4 years, mostly in spring and summertime (best months for thermal winds).

The learning site is secure and you'll find dedicated and responsables teachers in this school.

The beach and surroundings are beautiful. If want to kitesurf, this is the rigth place for you and your family.

“Eolis - if only i could be there all year long...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Met EOLIS a long time ago with different resources that the ones they have now. As far as i can tell, one of the best schools (with the better staff) i've ever seen in the last 6 years.
I have to say that the professionalism is great. The concern for the students' security also. The kitebeach is awesome -- not to mention that is my election beach for the last 15 years -- with excellent conditions. The store is a cozy one with dvds, clothing, acessories, boards, kites, kites and kites (all sort of) and evend wind toys...
At EOLIS they made me love kiting and made me even more respectful in what concerns the sea... always counting the days till summer just to get to Cabanas de Tavira.

It's difficult to get someone more demanding and at the same time cheerful and friendly. I just love the yelling of motivation (and also about errors)...

Try it, you will not regret it, in fact, it could become an addiction problem.
Good winds!!

“Friendly, professional, trusted school”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

I learned kitesurfing with Eolis 2 years ago but have been back to Cabanas Beach several times since. Each time I've seen the instructors in action, sharing their skills and knowledge whilst patiently encouraging their pupils and ensuring safety for all.
The beach is well run and has a community feel. For example, on a recent visit when I made a complete hash of things and was helped out by a local kitesurfer, he tipped off Sandra and she made me sit in on one of the safety lessons being given that afternoon as a free refresher. Nice one - thank you!
I now want my 12yo daughter to learn and I know that I can place my trust in Sandra/Eolis to ensure that she progresses safely and enjoyably. I'm not sure you could get a better recommendation.

“SUP experience with enchanting views and laughter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

Made my first SUP trip with EOLIS and enjoyed it very much. Although i went with my sister and knew that we were sharing the moment with a few people in the group we didn´t know, everyone was amazingly fun and Sandra (the instructor) immediately puts everyone at ease. The ride was beautiful since Cabanas is in the ria formosa, a delightful natural saltmarsh area in the Algarve. The views are fantastic, the time of the event which was at sunset/rising of the full moon made it even more special. Further, if you are a bird lover and want to join a bit of action with bird watching, you´re right at the spot. had a fantastic time with everyone and could have great laughs along the way. An experience to repeat and that i recommend to everyone :).
