We wanted to surf at the beginning of the year and we decided on Algarvean town of Lagos and this surf school as the connection from Faro is easy and the weather is great all year round. Although we came at the beginning of February (around 16 degrees), full body wetsuits kept us warm in the sea.
We were the first clients of the year and so we had the boss himself, Sebastian, all to ourselves!!! Now all the coaches we have seen so far elsewhere don't come anywhere near this guy. He knows a great deal about surfing and is an excellent teacher. He does not force you to do the "pop" when standing up on the board and instead offers helpful alternatives based on your personal abilities and fitness.
Thanks to their surfari approach, you are always at the spot where the waves are. Also, Sebastian took photos of our surfing progress, so that is a very nice bonus.
The school offers other outdoor adventures throughout Algarve, you can stay in their "casa" and they are also interested in making a positive impact on the whole area with their association.
Thank you Sebastian!

We had a look at many surf camps across europe and ended up booking here. Extremely happy with the decision, great value for money, great accomodation, great location - close to town and 2 beautiful beaches and the weather was pleasent even at the end of September.

Surf lessons were perfect, one session in morning and one in the afternoon. Great, knowledgable instructors providing great tips and techniques.

Beautiful beach house with everthing you could ask for.

Truly was a magical surfing holiday.

Thank you x

I'd like to express my greetings to all Extreme Algarve team! I had a chance to take a look at other surf courses at local beaches, and I liked much the way EA guys instructed us. I'm very grateful to them for informal and friendly atmosphere, as I do believe it had rather much more impact on my surf progress then classic 'academy' surf course would.
Marsel, Lee, Mark... Thank you very much, bros. I've got the 'surf-bug' with your help, and I'll be definitely back again.

I spent a couple of weeks surfing with Extreme Algarve and staying in their surf lodge: Casa Offshore. The lodge's facilities were excellent, the place was kept extremely clean, the staff were very helpful and obliging. I travelled alone but soon made many friends with my fellow surfers. There is a great atmosphere in the lodge, they host a weekly barbecue which is unmissable and everyone soon forms one big group. I found the instructors to be particularly helpful and with their help I made great progress over the two weeks which I stayed. All in all I had an absolute blast and this was one of the best holidays I've had in years.

I spent 4 days surfing with extreme algarve, as a novice I felt in safe hands. The teachers were knowledgable and patient offering support in the water throughout the lesson. Everything needed was provided including a good fresh lunch, which after a morning in the surf I was definately ready for!! I loved surfing even more than I thought I would and left a much better surfer than I expected. Thank you Lee, Rik and Marcel for being brilliant teachers. x
