Me and my daughter went to a group surf class, and it was amazing. The experience and all the attention we have, the teacher and the effort for giving us the best moment, even if we always fall or miss the wave. Thanks, it will be something to repeat for sure😉

After some lessons in Figueira we had the opportunity to have really high quality “education”.
We could complete some missing knowledge and fix some bad postures.
Marcello was really professional and communicative teacher.
Thanks a lot, I do hope we will come back.

Just completed a week on the Feeldouro Catarmeran accompanied by Marcel from Onda Pura and I cannot praise these 2 companies enough!
We booked the holiday via Errant Surf in the UK for a week of guided surfing and visiting the coastal towns of northern Portugal and from the moment we were met at the Airport by Nuno, we were treated like royalty all week. Their itinerary, local knowledge, friendliness, professionalism, safety and overall desire to make our holiday faultless make this company stand out from the crowd.
Jose was superb at recommending local restaurants and activities for my wife and I as our teenage children were looked after brilliantly by Marcel, the surfing instructor. Every morning they ensured we had fresh pastries, fruit etc for breakfast and our evening's entertainment was amazing meals at local restaurants.
Marcel was joined by Nuno from the Onda Pura Surf School, Matosinhos,Porto for the second half of the week and again, the level of personal service was simply superb. When we reached Porto, Ema from Feeldouro would take us each morning from the boat to Marcel's surf school where Marcel would then take us personally to the best surfing beaches (always with a lovely restaurant/cafe).
I cannot praise Feeldouro and Marcel's Onda Pura Surf School enough and would highly recommend this amazing trip for anyone wanting a week of amazing sights, surfing and service!
The catamaran was awesome - large, with 2 bathrooms, beautifully equipped, immaculately clean and loads of room for sunbathing.
Ema, from Feeldouro and Marcel from Onda Pura could not have been more helpful and we will certainly use both of these companies again in the future for more trips around northern Portugal.
Thank you to all the team for allowing us to "live the dream"!

Onda Pura is the kind o surf school where if you go more than once, you start to feel like family. The instructors know excellent English (I need to learn Portuguese), and I always feel like I get personal attention in the group classes and learn something new. The beach is perfect for beginners learning to surf, and Onda Pura is conveniently located right on it, so there's no need to pack a board across the street. The equipment is in great condition, and you can tell the staff loves their jobs -- even in the height of summer! Definitely visit and take a lesson or rent from them if you're in Porto. But don't do it on your first day otherwise you'll cancel all your other Porto plans and just stay at Onda Pura! haha

Top 1. Fantastic people, owners, teachers and first class material. Prime location just in the middle of Matosinhos beach, very consistent waves for all levels

I've been there to rent a board three times. The girl on the reception was always friendly and happy. Good assortment of boards. My buddy had some surf lessons and was totally happy with it. So we recommend !!! "Paolo" and Sebastian.

Awesome experience, great staff and lots of fun!! Instructors are really nice, you can tell they love teaching and make sure everyone has a good time :)

Totally recomended. If I ever go back to Porto and feel like surfing for sure I will call them back. I got to know them at the hostel, got the chance for them to pick me up at the hostel on the way to the beach. Made friends and had a great time.

Thank you!!

I went there with only an hour and a half of surf experience but I had so much fun I booked for one more lesson for the day after. The teachers there really focus on getting you on the next level and the waves conditions are perfect for learning. You will also meet great people there so dont hesitate and go try it!

I chose the school because of its excellent localization (it´s just on the beach) and very good feedback. The school has modern facilities, best quality equipment, very nice and professional teachers, amazing atmosphere. I love the terrace and sofas where you can relax or catch sun after the surf class! For sure I will go there again!!!
