We had the best time learning to surf with Salty! Our teacher Miguel was outstanding always taking best care of us and made it so much fun! I can highly recommend salty!

Miguel and Belmi were so nice and so helpful! Even though it was my first surf lesson I was surprised by how much I could do and I had so much fun!

We were a group of 7 (2 adults and 5 teens) and we booked a private lesson with Salty. Belmiro and Miguel were absolutely brilliant. They chose the location based on our ability (beginners) and made sure we all had the right boards so that we could all feel safe and confident. They really were fantastic instructors- very calm and clear about what we needed to do, but also great fun. We all stood up either on our first or second attempt and then spent 2 hours improving our technique. Cannot recommend Belmiro and Miguel highly enough! Thank you!…

A little delayed review about our experience with Belmiro. :)) My boyfriend Jakob and I were there in June and I really have to say I would recommend him and his surf lessons to anyone! We took a couple of lessons with Belmiro and were extremely happy. I did take in the past a surf course and multiple surf lessons in Portugal mainland and I’ve never had such a great lesson like with Belmiro. Other teachers would be there mostly for the “fun” part, but would somehow not teach you well enough. But Belmiro was besides being fun, a great TEACHER. He’s one of the few certified teachers on the island and you can really feel that. In Portugal mainland I had a time where a teacher was not taking care of me and others and a wave completely knocked me of. Since then I realised I had some fear of the waves. Belmiro realised this without me telling him and gave me back the trust by teaching me exactly how to approach the waves and the ocean. Within little time I felt safe and secure again. Really THANKS for that Belmiro! You are such a great teacher, one you can absolutely trust. Also the conversation felt always very honest and sincere and wasn’t superficial at all. That’s what made it even more fun. We also got the chance to meet his wife, who was super nice and even took pictures of us, whithout us asking, and sent them to us for free. I also very much appreciated that he sticked to his promise to never take more than 6 people for one class. Because of that, luckily for us, we had 2 times a private surf class for the group price because there was another group of 5 and he wouldn’t go in with 7. If I come back to Madeira again, it would definitely be for these great surf lessons with Belmiro. A true recommendation from the heart :)…

Had my first SUP session with Salty and loved it! I bought a SUP board now and will enjoy this sport for years to come. Cheers!
