Twinkiepatissier's review pretty much summed up everything I'd planned to say about Alex Surf School. It really is a customised and very personal experience. This is a surf school with optional accommodation, rather than a surf camp where you could just be one of many pupils.
Alex has a very unique approach, offering dedicated surf tuition to small groups. Consequently, you get a better quality of instruction and overall experience. He will also take you to the best spot for the day’s conditions. With Alex, you also have the added assurance of being coached by an excellent surfer, who makes it look very easy. He helped me iron out 17 years worth of bad habits and improved my surfing considerably. The video session was an added bonus and gave me plenty to go away and think about, not to mention work upon!
On the social side, Alex is extremely caring and keen to ensure that everyone is included and has a good time. He took a group of us to experience some excellent local cuisine in Peniche, which was one of the best nights of the week. We also had a few hours windsurfing at Obidos, followed by my final and by a long way, my best surf session of the week.
I can heartily recommend Alex Surf School and wish you every success with your surfing.
