The Surf School
This Surf school is intended for students who want to devote their day exclusively to surfing and in which we organize two sessions of surfing lessons per day. This school is open 7 days a week, including weekends.
Surfing classes at the best surfing school in Portugal begin every day, so students can start classes every day of the week.
SURF SCHOOL METHOD
We divide students into groups depending on their level of surfing
A beginner group never engages in the same waves as a continuing or advanced group, and vice versa. The class schedule is provided on the day before classes, but usually the meeting before classes starts at 9 in the morning.
As soon as all the students and the instructor’s surf assembly, one of the instructors makes an announcement regarding the school’s surf program at the best Porto surf school for the current day, and what kind of surf spot the students will go to. Subsequently, the students go to the spot, either on our transport, or on foot, depending on which spot the classes will be held. They are divided into groups depending on the level of surfing, in the ratio of about 5 students per instructor. The first surf session is held from morning until lunch, followed by lunch, and then the second session.
In the last part of the second sitting of surfing at the best surfcamps in northern Portugal, the groups return to the surf camp, where then on certain days sessions of video analysis and correction of surfing lessons are held. After that, the students are finally free until the end of the day, so that the next day in the morning they will meet again with their group and instructors for surfing.
Our guests and surf students can tell you about us better than anyone
Raquel, Marco & their son Rodrigo have made this the best hostel experience! From the rooms, and how immaculately clean the place is kept by Raquel (and her cooking), to the surf lessons this place is 10/10. In terms of value for money, it is unbelievable! Can’t recommend enough!
Marco & Rachel are the best hosts, so warm, kind and generous. Everything is impeccably clean, it is like staying in a hotel not a hostel, especially with the gorgeous garden and sun loungers. Rachel is a fantastic chef and I recommend staying for her amazing dinners, I absolutely loved them. Marco is an excellent surf teacher and so knowledgeable. Between the surfing, the delicious meals and the amazing vibes I had the best stay. Thank you so much ❤️

This is the best hostel I’ve ever stayed at! Very clean, and very welcoming. I had a great time hanging out with the family that runs this hostel. Everyone there are amazing and warm hearted people, who are passionate about what they do! An unforgettable experience!
