I booked a beginner class and turned up on my own. The class started a little late, but once we got going it was excellent and was not expensive €25 for a lesson on the beach followed by a good session in the water. Our group was taken by Diogo who was a great instructor. He offered to speak both Portuguese and English to our group, but the two Portuguese guys in my group were kind enough to speak English so that was great. The instructor was very good. He was fluent in English and gave clear instruction and feedback. I managed to get up a few times and couldn't have done so without the help. I'l happily go back again. Thanks 🌊👍

Me and my friends took a surf lesson and we had a great experience. We are all beginners and got a really good introduction to surfing. Our instructor Ricardo was very kind and gave us great tips when we were in the water. We all felt really safe and had a lot of fun!

Fish Surf School is the BEST place to start surfing or to get some guidance how to improve your surfing. Teachers are really professional and know what they are doing. They have time to concentrate on you because classes are kept small and they always come to the water. Equipment that is used is good and the environment is friendly and fun :D
Definitely would recommend to everybody!!

Matosinhos is definitely the best beach for everyone who wants to start surfing, no doubts about it! But with the guidance of this surf school... everything got even better! Awesome professionals (they REALLY know what they are doing!) and so nice people that they even offered us the chance to go for a bite in a very cool place to taste some very typical Portuguese delicacies! Definitely a must do, a must see and must try!!

This week we visited Porto with friends and took a surfing lesson at Fish Surf School. The experience was unforgettable! So much fun! Great thanks to our trainer, who gave us lots of useful advice. He was very supportive, explained everything in detail and gave us lots of time for real practice. These guys really know their job, and their prices are much nicer than in other schools. I hope to come to Porto next summer for the proper surf course! Good luck and thank you a lot for the positive and an amazing lesson!

Others may also teach... but these guys will give you one of your life's best experience!
I've tried out some surf schools all around the world, undoubtedly FISH SURF SCHOOL is one of the best in the world! They make you comfortable and their human capital is their strength! I share this belief strongly which is why on this occasion I feel at ease in supporting this report and do so in good conscience. JóJó and it's staff contribute to the feeling that Oporto city and Portugal is Europe's "California", by making use of Portugal's wonderful beaches! Western Europe is the best place in the world to relax, enjoy good food, the best wines and to learn how to surf!
