Surf lodge with warm family atmosphere and lovely & clean. I had a really great stay for 8 nights here in the private room with private bathroom :-)

The surfing lessons were very good quality and fun and I really felt an improvement and increased confidence over my 7 days of surf.

There are great facilities at the lodge with a lovely chill out garden with hammocks and plenty of spots to eat with new friends. There is a shared kitchen to make your own meals and Brian and Claudia and the volunteers made a really awesome BBQ on the Saturday night I was there (including vegan options!)

Easy walking distance to the beach where we surfed, plenty of time for chilling and beach walks. Also really great yoga classes with Claudia :-)

Highly recommend :-))

The surf house is in the pedestrian centre of Tocha beach. There are private and shared rooms and a communal kitchen, lving room and garden area. We stayed in one of the ensuite double rooms. The room was comfortable and in good condition with a modern shower room. The whole house is decorated in a beach style with driftwood and recycled furniture, very bright and ideal for the area. For surfers there are board storage and drying facilities at the front and back of the house, the layout works really well. The vibe in the house is very relaxed and friendly, there were a good range of ages and it is not a teenagers only party house, it was our first visit but other guests seemed to have become friends with Brian and Claudia and returned many times.

Tocha in September is very quiet, there is one restaurant, one bar (both good) but many of the beach front bars etc were closed or had very short hours. Most people cooked at the surfhouse and this worked well during our visit, there are minimarkets and an actual market with stalls in the village. If you were looking for a beach holiday and don't surf Tocha could be a bit limited (out of summar season) as it is a very small village surrounded by dunes and the sea is often too rough for small children, at the time we visited there was a distict channel with strong rip currents at the beach. For surfers on the other hand there are good breaks all along the coast, some of them nearly empty, it is a good option for uncrowded, good quality surf, and Brian, the owner, is an instructor who will provide advice, together with lessons and gear rental if required. There are also interesting trips out to towns in the area and walks. Several non surfers stayed while touring or walking in the area.

Stayed with Brian and Claudia for 12 top days. They make you feel right at home and the hostel has everything you need to kick back and relax. Brian is a real pro and very enthusiastic and makes a lot of effort to find the good surf spots, good for beginners and experts. Claudia's yoga sessions are really next level. The skills and fun of surf coach Tiarnan and the volunteer crew can also be mentioned. The BBQ with fresh fish right from the ocean was very tasty and cozy with the entire occupation of the hostel. In short .. this is a true little paradise where it is not touristy and very busy. For sure we will come back. Thanks for the awesome time with you guys. We really felt part of your family.

The place is a cosy hostel in a very nice village few meters from the beach. The hosts do everything to make you feel home and have a great surfing experience. The bathroom and kitchen are always kept super perfectly clean. Brian made sure that we have the best surfing experience even if that meant driving us to different beaches due to weather conditions at 6 am in the morning. Claudia’s yoga lessons are absolutely perfect after an exhausting day of activity.
I can recommend everyone to go there!

A great place with nice people in a great location. The rooms are well equipped, lovingly furnished and clean. The beach can be reached in 3 minutes on foot. We felt very comfortable with Brian and Claudia and look forward to our next stay.

We immediately felt comfortable and were welcomed nicely in this sweet little very homely surf camp. The surf lessons were great because Brian always picked the beach with the best conditions for us!
The camp was overall very clean and cozy, we have often cooked together with everyone and hung out. The rooms were also really cozy and the bathrooms were clean, modern and equipped with shampoo and all.

We will definitely come back with pleasure. See ya! T&M

The place is just amazing. Brian and Claudia are one of the most friendly people I have ever met. Once you stay here you feel like a member of the family. The surf lesson every day in the morning is the best way to begin a day. Brian is an experienced surfer and a great coach. Claudia is a yoga teacher and there are yoga lessons you can join. The village is not huge but you can find everything you need. Restaurant, cafe, barkey, grocery and bar are all within 10mins walk. If you want to find a place to escape from the city and try surfing, there are no other places better than Ticket2Surf.

I decided to take a few days off and my stay at Ticket2Surf was the perfect place. Good accommodation, good cleaning and facilities and above all a familiar and friendly vibe. Claudia and Brian are amazing hosts.

The surf was amazing, beers at sunset and the beach and village at Tocha that does not disappoint. Will repeat for sure!

Really welcoming hosts and lovely hostel! Couldn't have asked for more! Located centrally in the lovely village where there is all you could need. A bar, a couple shops and a couple cafes. The owner Brian is really helpful at giving advice on the best time and place to surf. We had an amazing stay.

I had a very pleasant stay with Claudia and Brian. Their guesthouse has a warm atmosphere and is very clean. Walking distance to the amazing beach of Praia da Tocha and epic surf classes. A perfect place to surf, unwind and relax.
