This school came recommended to me by a friend and I had a fantastic experience. We had the lesson with just the two of us and our super instructor Zé. We started off perfectly with the chill tunes of Zé on the ride to Amado beach. There he took the time to give a great safety briefing and continued with super constructive and clear feedback while I learned first to get onto the board, and later to stand on the board. At the end of this first lesson I managed to stand up on the board for about 10 seconds. Lots of credit goes out to Zé for giving just the right amount of feedback (not too much, or too little) to get me to progress quickly. In short, highly recommended!

Last week, I bookes two privated lessons at the Freeride Surfschool. I was amazed that Marta and het friendly staff recognized us after ten years since we have last visites Sagres. The service was great again. The Guide, Czé, took me and a friend to Amado and surfed at Tonel Beach. All beach breaks and the waves were quiet mellow. I reallu enjoyed the flow of the class, with warming up, getting to know the hazzard spots, currents and orientation points. The yoga style cooling down tipped off the total experience. I really recommend a d-tour to visit this school. With a former Pro surfer as founder they know what surfers want.

I really loved joining the team of Tatiana, Tom and Ze Loula for a week of lessons. They were well organised and great with every person. I got great inspiration from their evident passion for teaching surfing. It Waldo gave me a good understanding of life in Portugal

I attended a 5 days surf school as a beginner and I truly loved it. The teachers are very friendly, but also extremely professional and attentive to your learning process. It was an amazing experience and I would warmly recommend. A special appreciation and thank from my side goes to the Zé, Tatiana, Tomas and, last but not least, João for their availability, competence, enthusiasm and "boa onda"!
