How were the surf lessons?

     

What a fantastic few days learning to surf (mostly falling off) Carlos, our instructor, was the nicest guy you could meet. On the beach there was a very genuine community feel, with other surfers and surf schools.

It's the second year in row that I go to this surfing school.
I love it, and I will come back every year if I can!
The staff is super friendly and go to great lengths to ensure you get the most of your surfing day. They took us around the area searching for the perfect beaches, showed us local little towns and secluded beautiful beaches.
I'm definitely back next year.

How were the surf lessons?

     

I thought the instructors were very good. Carlos and Zac were both enthusiastic and were int he water with us throughout the sessions, which isnt always the case. Zac in particular pushed me out of my comfort zone, which was great.

WE did have difficulty finding suitable waves on two of the days, and had to drive around quite a lot. This may have been due to storm swells.

Went there for a 2-day-first-experience of surfing with my brother. The staff was really kind and friendly. They gave us really good advice. Everything was very well organised.
2 days wasn't enough!! I highly recommand this surf school for your stay in Sagres!

Friendly, responsible and attentive to everyone. Didn't force us out but was really helpful when we were ready to try again. Will definately go again on my next trip to Sagres.

Io e la mia ragazza abbiamo deciso di prendere una lezione di surf essendo a Sagres e volendo sfruttare lo splendido sole. Abbiamo deciso di fare il pacchetto mezza giornata in cui è compreso l'affitto dell'attrezzatura (muta e tavola), il trasporto alla spiaggia e ovviamente la lezione. Siamo partiti verso le 10 e tornati intorno alle 14.
Il nostro istruttore, Carlos, è molto bravo, chiaro nelle spiegazioni e attento. Ci ha fatto fare un riscaldamento muscolare, insegnato la teoria e la sua applicazione pratica in acqua. E' stata un'esperienza molto positiva con un maestro ottimo.

This area of Portugal is a year round surf destination and has the warmest sea water in the country. In the summer months you can surf in just shorts or a shortie and it doesn't get dark until 10pm so you can surf all day long! The coastline is part of the protected natural park with 50 kilometres of protected beaches with no large towns or high rise tourist accommodations. Instead you will discover beautiful pristine beaches and small traditional towns a far cry from the main overrun Algarve tourist spots.

Amado beach is the areas best beginner/intermediate surf beach and a great starting point. Amado is surrounded by many other great surf breaks with options for all standards. Praia da Cordoama is one of the most picturesque beaches in Portugal, a long stretch of sand protected by cliffs, a great intermediate spot. Praia do Castelejo beside it is even more consistent.

There's a dozen beaches further north all worth exploring including Arrifana & Amoreira, two very consistent beginner/intermediate beach breaks.

Furthest south is the laid back surf town of Sagres. The beaches East of Sagres such as Zavial & Martinhal are usually calm and require a big swell to work, they are a great alternative if the surf on the beaches on the West coast are too big. There are many hidden spots around Sagres some of which will require an SUV to get too but are well worth it especially for the more experienced.
