Great guys and girls around will show you the best option for day trips, they could drive you nearby tropical untouched beaches. Very simple to reach from Natal, Recife internationals airports. Closed to Africa and Europe, good choice for north east Brasil. Good night life or day time at the beach. Not far you find waterfalls and marine life as dolphins or turtles.
Recommended for Family, teens, Friends, Solo, Couples...
In the years many friends went there after my visit and they satisfy.

Roberto runs the most professionnal surf camp in Pipa from what I saw - he himself is a good instructor and is interested in teaching... There's some structure and he offers film sessions... The board selection is pretty decent... The other schools on Madeira are pretty fast and loose with surfer dudes who will take people out and push you around in the whitewater - which is fun if that's your goal, but not if you want to learn to surf... There seems to be a real lack of emphasis on safety techniques and on ettiquette / protocols... It's a bloody free for all out there... Much different from learning in Hawaii where they drill you on safety, how to control your board, stopping, not paddling in the ride zone, line up protocols etc etc... Watch out for foam boards firing into your face as you ride in on the waves...

Roberto has a great approach for beginners like us - he combines theory and practice, videotapes the lessons and analyzes the videos together with students, which helps a lot! Without any experience we were standing up on the first day! If our travels take us to Pipa again, we would definitely sign up for more lessons! Anya and Sasha

We had such fun learning to surf with Lucas, Luan and Roberto. They are all very proffesional, patient and friendly. We would recommend their school to anyone.

Thanks Guys - see you when we come back!
