    "Great instructors and, to be honest, just great people. The people of the hostel create a real family vibe that is infectious to be in and around; it just makes you smile. Everybody helps everybody in this hostel, from pouring orange juice in the morning to hanging up wetsuits in the afternoon. A great place to find a chill-out and get some "you time." The surf and surf lessons were great. Simply put: stay here, you will not be disappointed."

    "I visited the camp twice last year and I am already planning my next trip this summer! It is hard to describe the incredible atmosphere at the camp, you meet so many great people and I have only good things to say about the staff. They help you with everything and more and you get to feel like home during your stay at the camp. Ericeira is the perfect spot for a vacation, where you get both surfing, beach, delicious food, and party at night."

    "I had the pleasure to stay at Ericeira Surf Camp for seven days and I absolutely loved it. The staff was amazing, super friendly, and always willing to help. The hostel is situated in the center of Ericeira, which makes it so easy to explore the wonderful town of Ericeira by foot. The surfing lessons were amazing as well. Very well organized and the coaches were absolutely fabulous. You could really feel their passion for this sport and they really managed to share this passion and their love for surfing. This made it pretty easy to follow the professional instructions and manage the first steps to be able to surf! All in all, it was a great experience and I will return for sure! Many thanks to the whole team for the great time."
