How did you like the accommodation?


Booked the sharing room with bunk beds - bunk bed was rocking whenever the person at bottom bunk moves. worst was that the ladder to climb up was towards the wall with tables and wires underneath making it a health and safety issue.

Had to ask for change of bed after I tripped and had an accident. I was given a different room the next day but then had to surf with injured legs for the rest of the trip.

Having stayed at lot of hostels, the bunk bed was the worst. although may visit again but definitely avoiding the bunk beds there.

Surf instructors were good. Although surf conditions were not the best but that’s down to luck.

How did you like the accommodation?


I stayed in the Pensao which was lovely. Lots of space and totally spotless. The surflodge itself was nice but a little crowded and there wa salways a queue for the bathroom. If going back I would definitely go fro the Pensao option again.
I've been to Lagos before and it never disappoints. Beautiful town, lovely marina, great beaches. Full of nice bars and restaurants.

How did you like the surf lessons?


Lessons were very good. Staff / student ration was good. The whole operation was organised very well and was great fun at the same time. The instructors were good - motivated and friendly.Also flexible depending on conditions. Lunch on th esurfboard on the beach was always good.

The actual beaches were a bit disappointing. Th econditions weren't great the three days I went surfing - very strong white water mainly. Also thwere were rocks which the instructors had to stay at to ensure we didnt hit them. I still cut the soles of my feet which didnt help! Still it is an adventure sport so no complaints.

In particular it was the most sociable school I've been to. The staff ( both house and instructors) were so friendly it wa shard to believe. There was a restaurant outing or a meal on the roof terrace every evening if you wanted. Most people did and it was great fun. Everyone was helpful and friendly.
