    "Felt like entering a family! "

    The location was just immersed in peaceful green valleys, silent and relaxing. The villa was really beautiful: a big garden to walk and a little swimming pool. The food also surprised me, it takes time to cook with love for a big group of people! A huge breakfast to start, nice sandwiches to bring on the beach and fresh fish for dinner, couldn't ask for any better!

    The instructors really taught me a lot and I liked their way of teaching: comprehensive and inclusive.

    "Super relaxed and warmth atmosphere and nice surfing "

    For me it was a wonderful holiday at Russo Surf Camp. The nature around your camp, the surfing lessons and the warmth atmosphere in the camp were awesome!

    All the guests and the staff had a good time together! :)

    The surfing lessons were well structured and Hannah and Igor did a great job, always good explanations and motivation.

    The dinner was always very tasty and everybody in the team always had a smile on their face. :)

    Keep up the good work :) !!

    "UNFORGETTABLE!!! 🏄🏼‍♀️🤙🏽❤️"

    I cried when I left. Tonya & Russo are amazing hosts who treat you like family. I traveled alone and made friends from all over the world. It was the perfect mix of night time fun and day time learning. By the end of the week I could stand on the board with confidence, and with a big smile on my face! I will definitely be back soon. I ❤️ my Russo Surf Camp family !!!!!

    "A lovely stay and an amazing experience "

    The instructors were passionate and well versed. From the beginning and beyond I felt like a part of their family. Food, location, and course was better than I had imagined. I would without a doubt recommend Russo Surf Camp to anyone who is ready for an adventure and a lifelong memory!

    "Great instructors, great location , good food"

    I liked that the camp is located in quite a remote area in nature. 35min walk to the closest beach or 5min drive. Food was good for breakfast and dinners. Instructors were on point and good teachers that focus on everyone well :). Rooms are nice and good for detoxing each day ,

    "This is my surfboard and this is for fun!"

    We are a family of 4, Mum, Dad with very little surfing experience and our son,14 and daughter 11 have had some experience. None of us have ever had surf lessons. We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived, a part of the Russo surf family no less.

    The accomodation and dining arrangements were very good indeed and catered for any diet, we eat all but other meals where available if the main wasn't suitable. Nothing was too much trouble for Madara, Maria and we can't thank them and others in the house enough.

    The surf instructors from the youngest, 17/18 to the oldest...Louis ;-) throughly explained everything and demonstrated all so there was no confusion on how we should complete each of the steps. We spent the week with Hannah who had a lot of time for all and helped us reach a fair beginners level, our son and daughter fairing lots better than Mum and Dad..!

    We never stopped smiling, having a great time for the whole week.

    "Amazing surf camp"

    Russo surf camp is an absolute treat. Situated in a piece of heaven, with stunning views and beautiful sunsets to enjoy every evening. The surf coaches are professional and excellent at helping you learn surfing. Very easy going and comfortable atmosphere at the camp.

    The food was lovely, three course dinners every single day and bbq on Saturday. Buffet breakfast and packed lunches, so much good food.

    One of the best bits, is the relaxed start of the day, with 10:30 being the departure time to the beach, we never felt the rush.

    Great staff members, had the best time!!!

    Thank you all at Russo Camp. Can’t wait to visit again!!

    "Great surfcamp"

    The surf camp offers a great view on the top of the hills, the staff is very friendly and the spot is good - not too crowded and with good waves.

    I had an amazing time there, I met great people and I made progress in surf. I definitely recommend!

    "First time surfcamper"

    Food was excellent! I've also enjoyed staying in camp rather than the resort because it is in a beautiful garden.

    "Amazing experience, cant wait to go back"

    I had a really great time. The location was great with incredible views, the beach was one of the best beaches that I have ever been to and the food was very tasty. Overall it was great experience and I can't wait to go back.

    "Great Surfcamp"

    If your looking for a great experience, this is the place.

    Apart from the transport that didn't work as expected everything was more than perfect. The place, the teachers, the beach and especially the food. They provide you with everything you need for a great surf holiday. The atmosphere was great and Russo and Tonya are passionately working and helping you.

    See you next year!

    "This is amazing place who's you don't want to leave!"

    Everything is perfect: location, food, surf lessons! This camp is created with passion and run by people who really enjoy their job. I definitely recommend everyone to visit this place, be sure you will want to come back. Definitely you will have some free time after surfing lessons so I recommend you to rent a car as camp is located quiet far from the public transport and explore this wonderful beauty.

    "Amazing "

    Amazing food, home atmosphere and patient instructors, what else do you need? Hannah explained everything in such a detail that i already feel like pro, even though I can only surf white water. Before coming there I couldn't even stand up on the board and after not only can i stand up but i manage to surf for more than 5s.

    Surfing, location, ocean, nature, view, people, instructors, food, atmosphere and live music!!!


    from Germany, August 2021

    "Good vibes guaranteed! "

    Very good mix of a relaxed and active vacation sharing waves, good food, rooms and a lot of memories in a very rural and quiet area at the south-Western coast of the Algarve.

    The house has everything to offer for a good stay including nice music.

    "Intense week of surf and yoga"

    Surf teachers are very good and lot of time was spent on the beach. Yoga is build around the main focus of surfing. The yoga techer adabts the program daily depending how your body is feeling. Also, beautiful location for the resort!

    from Great Britain, June 2019

    A great friendly place to stay. The guest house is like a home from home with excellent hospitality and home cooked fresh food. A great bunch of people running the guest house, looking after us and conducting the surfing lessons. Very competent and patient surfing instructors who were funny and kind. I met some great people and had a lot of fun- I can see why people return year after year! Highly recommended to get away from it all- a perfect escape! I will be back! Thank you Russo camp!


    from Germany, October 2018

    The guests and staff have been very international and open-minded. There are several activities possible within the camp: game evening, pool, skateboard, guitar.
