If I could give 6 stars, I would. Our group was small which made it feel like a somewhat private experience. We headed to the west coast to a national park, so views were incredible and we were the only ones at that beach (no other schools). Our instructor Moreno was extremely versed in surfing given his years of expertise. He made us feeling prepared and safe on the boards before even getting in the water. I enjoyed how the day was not broken up in to two sessions…just straight fun for a few hours, topped with a delicious meal. All in all it was relaxed, not rushed, but packed with learning. I will return to Fila when I visit Lagos again!

By far the best surf lessons I have ever had. The four days spent with Filipe and Moreno as surf instructors were by far the best on a surf board so far, although I have had several beginner lessons around the world. The teaching style is straightforward, personal and with technical feedback and simple practices during the surf. The explanation goes beyond the usual "do this, do that.". The focus is fully on understanding the dynamics of the water, the board, and foremost: the person trying to catch the wave. Filsurf is the place to be to be(come) a surfer!

The personal approach and very professional advice. As a beginner I felt I was in good hands all the time and that approved after 5 day course when I was able to surf. They tell you all the details about surfing, ocean and waves, they let you know how to improve your skills constantly. The coaches are very experienced and lovely people - simply the best :)))

Just back from a week in Portugal and still buzzing with our surfing experience! The 3 days of lessons with Filipe and Miguel of Filsurf were definitely the highlight of our holiday. As a family of 5 surf novices we needed lots of help and advice! Filipe and Miguel were really thorough and mature in their training, covering not only surfing technique but also safety. It was fun to be taken to different beaches too. We hope to be back for more soon!
