Since discovering Drop Surf Center about 5 years ago I've returned with my family every year to take lessons with Nelson and his super-friendly team. I was back this week and although the conditions were a little challenging had the most fantastic surf lesson at Praia Lagide, moving beyond the basics, getting out back and progressing with my turns. Tuition is very clear and effective, these guys and girls really know what they're doing. My 13 year old daughter learnt the basics with Drop, then did a week of lessons in the UK and Nelson's tuition gave her a massive head start over the other kids. Surfing is now 'her thing', what a gift! Thank you all at Drop Surf Center, keep doing what you're doing dudes.

Nelson is very very positive, he’s just perfect to get to know surfing and fall in love with it, and also the best as a private coach. He gives very simple and very clear explanations about the ocean, position on the board,etc. Couldn’t crack turns and speeding up the board for years, but with his explanation I made it right away and used it for entire trip!! Will definitely go to that school again when in Baleal!
