      Great classes for beginners highly recommend
      I had the 3 lesson package here as someone who was brand new to surfing. I had an amazing time. The coach Ricardo was super good and nice. The waves at the beach here was also really nice for beginners. I had a great time and met some nice people here. Definitely give this a try if you are in Porto.

      Great beginner location
      Great instruction by Claudio and very well organized and easy to book. The wave size is great for beginners and it’s not too busy with locals so it’s a good place to learn.

      Great experience - highly recommended
      My husband took our 7 year old son for a group surf lesson, the instructors who helped both my husband and my son were so patient and supportive. The female instructor who was with my son was amazing, his confidence built incredibly over the time he was with her and he was very pleased with himself by the end. This was a professional and fun company to have lessons with and I would highly recommend it.

      great experience
      As a total beginner, I took a group lesson (we were 4 people in the group, maximum is 8). The coach paid attention to each of us individually, giving very helpful tips and comments. Also a nice opportunity to socialize with other people attending the lesson and make some friends if you come solo.

      Great time learning from Diogo
      I booked a beginner class and turned up on my own. The class started a little late, but once we got going it was excellent and was not expensive €25 for a lesson on the beach followed by a good session in the water. Our group was taken by Diogo who was a great instructor. He offered to speak both Portuguese and English to our group, but the two Portuguese guys in my group were kind enough to speak English so that was great. The instructor was very good. He was fluent in English and gave clear instruction and feedback. I managed to get up a few times and couldn't have done so without the help. I'l happily go back again. Thanks 🌊👍

      Surfing in October
      They were very amicable in renting their gear. My buddy surfed by himself while I took a surfing class. The instructor was this super handsome Portuguese dude who ignorantly thought I was Kelly Slater because I lived in Los Angeles. I recently surfed in San Diego and I’ll telll you this instructor took us to a WAY DIFFICULT set. We got dressed into full body wet suits, warmed up and headed to swim out . He then decided to call my surfing skill SH*T. Haha never heard that before. I fatigued after an hour. Eat well cuz your bringing lots of energy. Beautiful views but try not to die out there in October! That instructor was rude

      Great Surfing Lessons
      Our surfing coach was a very knowledgable teacher. His instructions and patience made sure we made big steps and also fun during our lesson. Our small group of 3 gave the lesson a very personal touch. The surfing gear (board and wetsuit) was of good quality.

      Very good instructions for first time surfers - we got a hang of the basic
      The surf instructor was very good at teaching us the basics. It turned out to be one of the very few days with little wind and waves. The instructor did what he could to help us catch the waves there were and stayed out with us longer than expected. Great experience!

      Surfing in Porto
      Miguel and Ricardo were my instructors and they were wonderful! They were very encouraging and took the time to give me feedback which was really helpful. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in learning how to surf or just looking for extra support in the water. It was my first time surfing and I had so much fun I had to go back again! Miguel went above and beyond to help me catch the waves the whole time which was really helpful and made the whole experience so positive!! Ricardo gave really good feedback and tips which I felt helped me improve a lot over the lesson.

    We had our first ever surf lesson with Daniel. As we have never surfed before we picked a private lesson for 2 person. Daniel was an amazing and funny teacher with positive vibes. We were catching waves in no time.

    Me and my friends took a surf lesson and we had a great experience. We are all beginners and got a really good introduction to surfing. Our instructor Ricardo was very kind and gave us great tips when we were in the water. We all felt really safe and had a lot of fun!

    We’ve never surfed before and didn’t even expect that we’ll manage to stand up on the board within 1,5h of lesson.
    The teacher was very helpful and he explained everything clearly. He was giving us feedback after each try and correcting our moves.
    In the end, we got great experience and managed to catch a lot of small waves.
    Really great value for money!

    My best surf lesson ever!
    We booked a surf lesson in a group and we got split up in two teams. The ones who never surfed before and the ones who surfed twice or several times.
    In the following are my positive impressions:
    - The surf are very friendly and motivated.
    - The value for money is super fair: 25€ included a surf board, wetsuit, warmup and 1 1/2 hour surfing in the sea (getting ready and carrying the surf boards to the sea are not part of the 1 1/2 hours!)
    - The coaches especially took care of the beginners and helped them to catch good waves and gave great assistance. They were very patient.
    - Although we were all very free and the advanced surfers could surf in the green waves as well.
    - Furthermore our coach paddled out to consistently watch out for good waves to catch them.
    - Our second surf lesson got cancelled. The surf coach refunded the money directly, which is also very uncomplicated reliable.
    All in all I can definitely recommend this surf school!

    Just got back from an afternoon private surf lesson at Fish. Really good tuition, warm people, friendly, good fun, a great venue. I made good progress and really benefitted from having my own coach. Highly recommended.

    The guys got me booked for a lesson with less then a day of notice! I took a private surf lesson with Juan and it was great! He helps you a lot in taking the first steps and gets you to a higher level if he sees you're doing good! It was my first time but you can be sure I'll be surfing again thanks to this great first impressions! Thanks so much!
