  • What happens on a group surf lesson?
    We all head to the same beach together, however that doesn't mean you’ll all be having the same lesson. We separate into levels 1-4 you can read more about our levels on add link. You’ll head to the water after a bit of theory and warmup.
  • Do you offer surf lessons all year round?
    Yes, we are taking bookings all year round!
  • Do you have lockers or a changing room available?
    No, we get changed on the beach, which is why we suggest bringing a towel. We don’t recommend bringing valuables, but if you do we recommend bringing it down to the beach with you.
  • What are the waves like in the Algarve?
    Despite its position in the Atlantic, the Algarve has more of a Mediterranean feel, keeping it warm during the day and slightly cooler as the sun goes down, with a very low chance of rain. On average the Algarve receives 6mm of rain per month. Just so you don’t tempt fate, bring a waterproof and a warm jumper or two for the cooler evenings. For surfing, you’ll be needing a wetsuit. A 4/3 or a 3/2 are both good for those Atlantic rollers, depending on the time of year and how comfortable you are in cooler waters. The wetsuit hire is included in the price of the lesson, we only need your height for the size.
  • How old do my kids need to be before they can participate in the program?
    Here is our kids policy: Under 7 — we cannot accept on surf guides or lessons. From 7 to 12 — lessons are available if you can demonstrate your child’s swimming ability. Please note however that we require one parent or guardian to be in the water supervising each child at all times, since our instructors will have other guests to attend to. The guardian can not join the same lesson while they are supervising the child. From 12 – 16 — lessons are available with a parent or guardian supervising at the same beach. The guardian may join the same lesson if they wish.
