Full description

After stepping out of the van, you will be able to see the waves on the beach underneath you. How they conceal the sand, only to reveal it again a second afterward. You can breathe in the salty air and feel the sun on your skin as you slip into your wetsuit. When your feet touch the sand of the beach, your adventure is just one step ahead of you. In the hands of this surfing and snorkeling school based in Albufeira, you will have the opportunity to start from the ground up and learn how to surf. You will be brought closer to the ocean to experience memorable moments underwater and on your surfboard. You can try something new that you will broaden your horizons, it’s all about the experience. 

Your lesson will be adjusted according to your skills, meaning that you can start on the sand or hit the water straight away to further your skills. Enjoy a hands-on, personal learning experience, as each instructor looks after around nine participants.

The actual experience was amazing, the instructor Shana was lovely, she took her time with us (it was only 2 of us) and was extremely patient. She showed us how to stand up and adjusted the lesson depending on how we were progressing. The only issue was the customer service. On the day I booked, I arrived at the beach and there was no one present. I called the number provided and was told that someone would be coming in 30 minutes. I waited and the lovely woman who came told me that the instructor was unwell. She offered me the options of either the session the next day or a refund. I took the session the next day and enjoyed it - especially as it was my first time surfing.

Highly recommend to anyone that wants to try surfing. I had the best day! Hotel collection is available for 5€ which was super helpful as I didn’t have a car. This was my first time surfing and I managed to stand up on the board. Nuno, the instructor, was really helpful and tailored the lesson to suit everyone’s ability. The lesson was very safe and it’s on the most beautiful beach.

The surf teachers are very friendly and the beach is beautiful. The activity is nice but unfortunately there were a lot of people in the group (we were about fifteen unlike the 8 announced by GetYourGuide) which does not allow the instructor to have a personalized follow-up with each one, and we come home a little inside. We all had the same good fun.
