"Excellent family experience "
I’m from Ireland and I brought my two sons 6tears and 8years and myself to Surfing recently, in December with Atlantic Coast Surf School in Portugal. Our instructor Pedro, met us at the airport and drove us to our accommodation. He got in touch two days beforehand and suggested he would get us some groceries, that we might need on arrival, which was an excellent idea And I agreed. We arrived late at the airplane Pedro met us with our groceries and drove us to our accommodation. Each morning Pedro met us and drove us to a suitable location to surf that was suitable for our level.
The lessons were excellent. And I improved over the few day and had lots of fun. My two boys had so much fun they did not want to leave. They also improved their surfing.
Pedro was great with the kids. Very safe, patient with the kids and very friendly.
The service Pedro provided was excellent, I haven’t experienced better anywhere. Extremely professional, safe, friendly and thoughtful individual.
I would not hesitate to recommend Atlantic Coast Surfing School.

The instructors were excellent, focused on safety and ensuring that the students learned and had a great experience. My two children (ages 7 and 10) were well taken care of and want to come back in the future.
