Extraordinary stay with joey d and his team. The staff took care of us, by showing ideal surfspots,great sights and giving an insight into Portuguese culture and cuisine. They were friendly and always there for us guests. If I am ever in Porto again, surfing life is the place to stay. Would recommend to everybody!!!

JD knows his stuff and is great at giving lots of guidance as well as letting you learn and get confident on your own. He always makes it fun! I now feel after just one week surfing with him that I have the confidence to surf on my own. You've inspired me to be part of the surfing lifestyle, thank... More

Took my brother and his mates surfing for his stag do and Joao and the guys were amazing. Great teachers and full of energy which got a bunch of hung-over lads enthusiastic. I think everyone got up on the boards and it was a great day... nice bar there on an incredibly quiet urban beach. Thanks

3 friends and I went for a 1/2 day surf adventure in Matosinhos, a 25 minute or so tram's journey from central Porto. Our instructor was Joao Diago (macedasurfhostel@gmail.com). I cannot commend this surf experience enough. Joao is a great instructor: very encouraging, and as we booked as a group of 4, there were many moments during the 1/2 day... More

Went for an extended weekend in Porto and took the opportunity to go surfing at Matosinhos (25 min from the city center with the metro). The spot works well in the winter and is adapted to pretty much every level from beginners to advanced. I had a great time there, and I would definitely recommend going to Surfing Life Club... More

I slept for three nights in "the tube" that is their new sort of bungalow in their big garden, very modern and confortable. During the night we could hear the ocean's waves, it was very relaxing. The surf' spots are very closed to the surf house. The beaches nearby the house are very wild, not full of tourists, only local... More
