Teaching people how to surf for 10 years, Zé Miguel is an international certified surf coach from Anadia, Portugal. He has started his career as an assistant on a surf school in the north of Portugal and, after that season, he came to Baleal, Peniche, and never went back. Here, Zé Miguel was part of the "dream teams" of the two most know surf camps in Peniche area, where we would become an experienced coach and a familiar face at the beach. He's now part of our team, and he's looking forward to provide quality and memorable surfing experiences to our guests!

The whole packet is absolutely great. You don´t have to think about anything, accommodation, all the meals and surf classes are arranged for you.
Your day will be like breakfast-surf-lunch-rest-surf-dinner and repeat.
Joao and Miguel are very helpful and teach you all you need to have fun in the waves.
Really a perfect vacation.

Surfing classes by Sandro were so nice, he gave attention to each one of us, was very relaxed and supportive. Breakfast was always cute, they easily provided vegan options for me, food at the surfing center was delicious. All the people involved were really friendly and made our vacation very pleasant. We would definitely come again.

"Excellent experience with excellent people"
It was my first time surfing.
I am happy I had one of the greatest experience so it makes me want to go back to surfing once again.
First, Joao. He is an absolutely amazing instructor, a wonderful person, and just a nice person to get to know. He was very helpful, very understanding, and very encouraging.
Second, accommodation. Martin's Villa is an astonishingly beautiful place to stay at. Very clean, very cosy, very hospitable.
Third, food! Amazing dinners one could dream of! I would definitely love to come back next year!

"Amazing quality surf camp in Peniche!"
I spent a week in Peniche, surfing with Sandro from Danau and I had the best time! He is an amazing teacher, super fun and enthusiasitc. I already surfed but wanted to improve and he was the best for that! I improved a lot so fast. I is observant, sees all the small mistakes you do and helps you correct them and get more confident on the line up. I'm so grateful! Can't wait to be back!
I stay in the nice family house from Danau. The house was just perfect, lovely place. They thought about every little detail!

Everyone at the surf center and at Martin’s villa was very welcoming and sweet. During the surf lessons I learned way more than what I‘d expected. Sandro is a great teacher, you can tell that he loves his job and the waves! Thank you for those great days, I‘m sure I‘ll be back one day!
