our surf class was the highlight to our Porto trip. group sizes were small which gave both instructors tons of time to help each rider. they are very patient and give many great insights. the difference between catching a wave and failing is all in the tiny tiny details, and both instructors were great. everytime I was helped, i caught the next wave with ease. in addition the instructors are both life long locals so we're happy to take us around and write us on WhatsApp whenever we wanted food or nightlife recommendations. great way to see Porto and connect to nature. i already want to come back soon to keep improving. my gf also surfed in the class for th first time. due to the lessons she caught multiple waves her first time out. 100% would recommend.

After our surf instructor Bernardo picked us up punctually at the agreed meeting point, we went to the beach in Matosinhos. Bernardo took his time for each participant (there were 4 people in total) and responded individually. We had a lot of fun and would spend the morning with Bernardo Book again. In the end, a restaurant nearby was recommended to us and Bernardo also took care of a reservation. We will see each other again on our next visit to Porto, Bernardo. Obrigador

We had a wonderful morning, Marco was very available and supervised us very well. We managed to progress in a few hours! And that made us want to go surfing again. Marco took the time to take a lot of photos and sent them to us quickly, a great attention You can book with your eyes closed ‍♀️

We had an amazing time surfing. Bernardo was so patient and kind and made it really great fun for everyone in the group. He was really communicative throughout organising the booking and picked us up so near our accomodation which was really handy. We would 100% recommend!
