Miquel, Odin and Thiago gave good lessons. A bit of theory and/or things to focus on in the session and then practicing that in the water. Groups were split by experience to ensure everyone has a good experience and the right level of challenge. Communication with the school worked well via WhatsApp and everything went smoothly. Praia do Manhao is very beautiful. Only improvement I can think of to have a sustainability policy and/or communicate what the school does in this respect.

That’s a real school for people who like to learn humbly and consciensouscly about surfing. Teachers are concerned to explain about both surf tecnics and ocean understanding. The surfing spot is limitated on the beach, so you have a visual reminder of where you have to be : teachers always keep an eye on everyone so not only you are safe but they also give you tips and feedbacks on each wave you catch or loose. I have been to various surf lessons before, and here i could feel a passion for sharing the ocean with every student. That was a nice experience really :)

Great surf instructors, very easygoing but very clear and helpful in their instructions. Also just nice people, and they have a super understanding of where around Mil Fontes the waves are best that day. Highly recommend!
