Luis and his team were fabulous. They were great instructors, not only for beginners, but also helping those who had not yet critiqued the art of surfing but were well on their way. My friends and I had a great time with these guys and would highly recommend Sol&fun to go surfing with, regardless of your skills or experience.

Only had one session of surf with solfun. Originally signed with another surf school that was a little bit disappointing. My friends had already been surfing with solfun, and where really happy with it. And they didn't let me down. both instructors (Luis and Rasta) where really positive, helping and above all patient with me. Although I was a little bit nervous about the waves, I had a great lesson in the water. Would really recommend Solfun for beginners. The atmosphere before, during and after surf is fun and relaxed, the facilities are great, beach is nice and the little bar by the surf school so charming and nice.

I've had surfing lessons in a couple of places (Hawaii, Fuertaventura) and my week with Sol & Fun was one of the best. Luis is a really great surfing instructor who is also a brilliant guide. My girlfriends and I had a really enjoyable week of surfing. Luis' lessons catered for our different levels (limited experience to total beginner). We also went on a trip to Sintra and a night out in Lisbon. I would definitely recommend Luis as he is a fabulous teacher. He has definitely inspired us to become surfer girls - when we're not in the office!

Had a really nice first surfing experience with Luis! He is a great instructor who knows how to encourage and make his students to be relaxed and comfortable with their abilities. And apart from that it was a spectacular tour through Sintra and the coast line in a super relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Looking forward to come back for longer surf holidays!

A couple of friends and I had a week learning to surf with Luis as our instructor. Two of us had done some surfing before and our other friend had surfed but had such a bad experience she was terrified to try again. Luis persuaded her to have a go and within 20 mins she was popping up like a pro! Whenever she got scared he would help her out and soon have her smiling again. I have never had such a good instructor as Luis - by the end of the week we were out the back turning on green waves and having a fantastic time. We loved Luis's "hippy van" and the drive through the national reserve to the stunning beaches, beers at the beach bar after surfing and the night out in Lisbon. Thanks Luis! Can't wait to go back.
