Alex and Paloma are great hosts making sure everybody is enjoying their holiday. The surf school has excellent teachers who teach in small groups and watch everyone carefully to give individual advice so everyone can improve. It is a great place to learn to surf, make new friends and have a great vacation!

Family of four all complete beginners to surfing. All had a great time. Incredibly patient teacher. Good communication from the team before arriving in Portugal. Reasonably priced. Decent equipment. Would definitely recommend.

A friend and I stayed at Alex Surf School 19-24th of May 2016, the lessons were excellent, made me annoyed with all the bad advice I have been given over the years, the equal parts encouragement and pushing were ideal. The accommodation was simple but did the trick, clean, tidy, decent shower, cooking facilities etc. we were shown the new area of the hostel that is due to open soon and it is looking superb! We were looked after by Alex and his team, ranging from being picked up and dropped off at the bus station, to going out for breakfast/dinner or having BBQs at the hostel, we were always made to feel welcome, if you want to improve this is a great place. We wish we could have stayed longer...

A friend and I just got back from a week-long stay at Alex Surf School. Alex, Paloma and Tiago were all so welcoming and encouraging, and the lessons we had with Tiago were excellent. The hostel has been recently built - looks great, with comfortable beds and lovely bathrooms. All in all, a really great time, and we wished we'd stayed longer. Great waves too!
