Amy and the boys are absolutely lovely people, and also great teachers. Especially for solo travellers, Amy and Surf Hub's surf trips work as a great way to get to know other travellers!

Kite surfing is one of the best activities Sal has to offer, so I highly recommend trying it out - even for just one lesson to learn the basics of the kite handling and doing some bodydragging in water.

If they happen to offer a BBQ evening, consider joining it: We enjoyed some of the tastiest food and beverages during my whole stay here.

I had a great surf experience at Amy’s surf hub during my vacation. Amy and the boys are lovely people and great instructors. I mostly surfed with Tchu and he is a great teacher. I ended up surfing on almost every day during my two week stay and really enjoyed my time surfing at this amazing place. Amy is lovely and welcoming and was always very encouraging and gave me plenty of good tips and guidance on the days when I only rented a board. She also made sure that the waves were good before going out in the water. I’ll definitely be back next time I visit!

Me and my boyfriend have had a great great surfing experience at Amy's surf hub during our 2 week vacation. We had 2 lessons from very enthusiastic surf teachers who explained the basic surfing technique and then helped us getting our first wave surfing successes pretty quickly. After that we rented a surf board and both managed to catch a couple of good waves while standing on our boards!
Also, Amy is a very open and sweet person who also saved us from some stalking street salesmen and gave us some helpful and practical tips during our vacation. She's great!

I had a great week learning kite surfing with Amy and the boys. Everything since booking the trip was very smooth and well communicated. The instructors are lovely and very skilled. I'm at early stages of learning and had slightly bad experience on the first day, and Amy really put in all the effort to turn it into a good one. I'm glad she did, because after that I had a great time, and was standing on the board towards the end of the week - the best feeling ever!

Great surf experience last week. Very warm welcome in the shop, my instructor was really friendly as I was a beginner but was able to get up on the board and had a great time learning how to surf. Good value for money and would definitely do it again next time we holiday in Sal. All equipment was provided and in good condition.

I literally bumped into Amy and Surf Hub and I'm so glad I did, and am now able to refer them.
Amy can sort everything you need for the stay, and do most of in advance and cheaper than elsewhere.
I had kitesurfing lessons with Jardel who is a superb instructor, but Amy herself just couldn't do enough for me. It was great.
So get in touch them beforehand, or as soon as you arrange pop by to say Hi, and it's exactly these local contacts that make a trip.
Amy / Jardel - I'll see you again next Feb / March if not sooner.

Truly amazing group of people make this place unique and unforgettable. I will for sure be back.

I had great surf sessions with experienced and cool instructors;) My special thanks to Ravi (!!!) - all of them speak very good English so communication is not an issue of any kind, unlike so many other schools in tropics.

There are a few spots that will meet expectations of both beginners and advanced surfers. One of the spots is just next to the shop - 2 min walk. Water is just perfect with short wetsuit and u can see great waves so often, almost daily.

The school is well organized and has good equipment, they maintain diligent safety precautions at a very decent price point.
Amy is an extremely warm, funny, friendly and supportive host, knowing everything about the island which allows to understand more local society;)

The slow-paced city with kind locals adds up to the picture.
I haven’t been to many places in the recent years that has so strong and natural vibe.

Also - it's only 4/5 hours flight from Europe. For sure best surfing escape from cold winter here even if you only go for a few days.

No stress and see you again:)

Just like to say a massive thank you to Surf Hub, I booked my lessons with Amy before arriving in Cape Verde after someone recommended these guys, I was super stoked to be up and riding so quickly, the lessons were great and the instructors always so friendly and happy. All the equipment was new and really easy to use. On a couple of days they advised me not to waste my money on a lesson as the wind wasn’t very good and I’m glad I didn’t go out as the wind in the following days was amazing. If you’re thinking of heading out to Cape Verde I can’t recommend these guys highly enough :) If you’re looking to learn how to kitesurf as a complete beginner I would recommend getting down to your local wakeboarding cable park and learning to ride a wakeboard both regular and goofy, this made a massive difference for me, good luck!
Thanks Surf Hub,
Jonny :)

If your a surfer or wanting to experience the thrill offered by catching a wave then visiting the Surf Hub in Cape Verde is a must! The island of Cape Verde is well known for its excellent surf so if you are thinking of visiting this island or looking for something a little different then this is the place to come for your holidays. The team at The Surf Hub are the best you will find to help you as a beginner or as someone hoping to improve as a surfer. My daughter is somewhere between a beginner and an experienced surfer. She has her own board and has just returned from a month of surfing in San Sebastián in Spain but I can honestly say she has learnt more with the Surf Hub Team in one day than all the surfing she has done before. Even before we arrived in Cape Verde Amy was wonderful in her response to all my questions and meeting the team for the first time today lived up to all expectations that my conversations conjured up. My daughter learnt so much on day one and has improved immensely. If you are thinking of coming to Cape Verde then this activity is a must or if your looking for a Surf location for your holiday then come to Cape Verde and look no further than the Surf Hub for your relaxed but informative lessons. Brilliant rates offered but most importantly is the lessons to be learnt from experts who have grown up surfing. No matter what your skill level you will come away from this experience more accomplished in the surfing lifestyle. Today has been so good that we have booked lessons for 6 of our 7 day stay. I am not an avid blogger. In fact this is my first ever entry on TripAdvisor but so good was our experience that I feel compelled to make an entry. I hope this inspires and informs others to experience what we have at the Surf Hub Cabo Varde
