"Amazing experience - superb location and great instructors"

Having the chance to surf in a small group on a very spacious beach is so special and it helped me a lot with improving my skills in this amazing sport.

I stayed at Marias Hostel & Surf to improve my surf skills and to make new friends, and it was the perfect place to do both! The Hostel is very close to Praia Furadouro, a long stretch of sandy beach with waves for different surf levels, close to nature. There are restaurants, bars and shops within 2 minutes walk. Furadouro is a part of Ovar, a nearby city which has lovely architecture and a characteristic Portuguese feel to it.

The Hostel itself has a great layout for having privacy but also to be able to socialise with others - some days we cooked and ate together, some days I did yoga in the living room or just chilled in the hammock on the balcony. There are also big tables both indoors and on the patio which allowed me to work from my computer without distractions. The place is stylishly decorated. The daily breakfast is substantial, we had sweet and savoury food as well as fruits and coffee.

The surf instructors and hosts, Bruno and Henrique were amazing. They are very knowledgeable but laid back at the same time, which grants you to have a great experience and accomplishment in the ocean. They paid attention to the guests' requests and individual levels and made sure to teach every one of us something new. I'll be back at the earliest opportunity - this time it will feel like returning to friends :)

"Unforgettable stay with beautiful people :)"

Our last minute planned trip with two friends turned out to be absolutely amazing! Thanks to the Marias Hostel and Surf and all the great staff there, we spent a wonderful week leaving us with loads of happy memories and new surfing skills!! A special appreciation for Bruno who always made sure we were happy and comfortable as much at the hostel as out in the ocean. We definitely recommend this place and hope to return in the future!

"An amazing experience"

I was at Maria hostel and surf for a surf camp, and it's been awesome. The hostel is very clean and cosy, and very near to the beach. Bruno is a passionate and prepared instructor, and his insights helped us progress quickly. He's also very dedicated in choosing the best surf spots for every day in the sea.

"Fun and intensive surf camp"

Me and my brother had a great time in a one week surf camp with Bruno.

The classes and the choice of the spot were focused on the skills we had to improve. We went to 4 different spot in 6 days and Bruno managed to always find the best conditions to surf.

He gave us tips about how to improve the take off, paddling correctly, choosing the best waves and he corrected our posture on the board.

I strongly recommend this camp for beginners and intermediate surfers.

The accommodation was comfortable, clean and tidy, we were 2 people in a 4 bed shared room. Breakfast also had bakery products and different fresh fruit every day.

In Furadouro there are plenty of restaurants and cervejarias (O Tasco and Cantinha do Valente are the best ones imho)

"The perfect Surfcamp"

I decided to go on a trip to Portugal very spontaneously. I didn't know how to surf before and wanted to stay in a calm place. Maria's hostel & surf was the best decision I could have taken for this week. I had so many fun moments, all the people there were very kind, the hostel was always clean and the breakfast amazing. Bruno helped me a lot with surfing and at the end of the week I even was able to catch a few clear waves by myself. (I didn't even think about that to happen before) I can recommend this Surfcamp for everybody :-)

"Super Surfurlaub"

Das Hostel ist klein und sehr gepflegt. Es haben maximal 10 Menschen Platz. Die Zimm sind liebevoll und stilvoll eingerichtet und man fühlt sich sofort wohl. Außerdem ist die Lage wirklich überwältigend.

Auch der Surfkurs war für als absolute Anfänger sehr angenehm. Unser Surflehrer gab uns gerade zu Beginn wertvolle Tipps und Unterstützung, sodass wir sehr schnell Fortschritte machen konnten. Außerdem war die Stimmung während der Surfstunden stets locker und sehr positiv.

Wunderschön waren auch die beiden Surf-lessons am Abend, wobei der Sonnenuntergang in seiner ganzen Pracht neben dem Surfen bewundert werden konnte.
