Thanks to them, my experience was unforgettable. They have great instructors and a great place to learn to surf! Wishing you best of luck, dearest Fish Surf School."

    "My friend and I spent four days in Porto and we took one-day course Saturday morning, and it was great! I was a real beginner (with no experience in surfing or skate or snowboarding, but the staff encouraged me throughout the course and I really enjoyed it! The whole staff were so, so, nice, absolutely lovely, and the experience was amazing. Wish I had more time in Porto to do more classes, but will definitely try to come back to Fish Surf School. Thank you for this unforgettable experience!"

    "Friendly, professional, unintimidating, fun, and very easy to get to. Get off the bus at the southern end of the beach, at the roundabout where there is the huge red netting sculpture, and, when next to the beach, cross over to your right. The school is based in the ground floor of a block of flats with a secured changing area. The team was very welcoming, with good English, and several years of teaching experience. It is clearly a big passion of theirs. The children who were there enjoying summer school activities looked like they were having a great time, building water confidence, learning about the sea, and how to surf. We were taught in a small group and everyone got personal attention. The beach is safe, shelving gently, with varied wave conditions along its width for different abilities, and fine sand. The water seemed clear too. The wetsuits provided were warm and fitted well, and boards in good condition. I think everyone managed to stand, if only for a short time, during our session, and everyone certainly managed to experience the buzz of catching a wave! 15 EUR very well spent! I may even go again tomorrow!"

    "First and foremost, I would like to compliment all the staff that work here. Jojo has been the most amazing instructor! He has helped me out since day one and made the whole process of starting the school super easy. Every instructor takes their time to explain and correct mistakes. I have been placed in a surf school hostel, which truly feels like home away. I have had the most amazing week and I felt like part of their family! Thank you and I hope to be back."

    "Must-do for people who love water sports. I had a private lesson with Pedro, who is totally professional, and loves his job. He explained everything in details, provided helpful tips and totally convinced me to love surfing! Fish Surf School provides all the equipment needed and they speak English. The only regret I have is that I couldn't come back next time... Will definitely do it when I visit Porto next time."

    "My son has spent this week at the Fish Surf School, his first surfing experience, and it has been amazing. Very professional, patient, and caring staff who were great with the kids. Very well organized and I felt that he was in safe hands. He now has the basic knowledge of surfing and I´m sure he will have more lessons in the future with Fish Surf School. A big thank you to João and his fabulous team."
