We stayed at Busca Vida for 2 weeks in Feb 2010 and are actually planning another visit in December.
The place is amazing and a perfect spot for surfing as well as for relaxing. If the waves in front of the camp aren't that good one day the surf teacher - Beto - will bring you to other nice spots nearby.
The served brazilian food is delicious!!!
Beto is a cool guy and if you have the possibility to meet his brother (Marcelo) you might have a trip to Salvador Night Life you'll never forget :-)
We enjoyed this place very much and we are sure you also will and always come back !!!

It was my first surf course and so i was really wondering about how it will be. In short words: it was one of the best times i ever had. And that is the honour of Beto and his team; you are never treated like a stranger, but more as a part of the family.
The place is just perfect, situated in front of the sea, in a condominium, with less people over the week. It is the perfect place to forget of all the things, just surf and relax!
The food is excellent and the acommodation also.
And beto is a really funny guy and sees everything what you do in the water, and will give you the best hints for your improvement.
I was planning to stay 4 weeks and ended up there with nearly 6 weeks, but only due to timelack.
So make your decision to go there, it is really worth doing it, you wont be disapponited.

I just can recommand this surf camp!We first planend staying 1 Week and ended up staying 4 weeks!!!!!The appartment, the food (excellent!!!!) and the surf is just amazing. The beaches were nearly empty and there are different spots for every skills. One is directly in front of the camp others some care driving minutes away. Last but not least, Beto and his Crew is just fantastic!Its a very good value for money!!

The surfcamp is just a view steps away from the nicest beaches I have ever been
Nice rooms, nice peoples, amazing food and many activities like surfing, kite surfing, yoga and more
The nice city Bahia de Salvador is just a jump away from the surfcamp.

Really a place to go!

Really good place to stay at if you want a relaxing and good surf holiday!! Perfect location just at the beach in a very nice, safe and private area not far from the airport of Salvador. Rooms are good and the house is cleaned. Really good food and lots of fresh fruit for breakfast and fantastic desserts for lunch...

Surflessions and boards are included and the waves are just in front of the house!
