World-class waves, mediterranean climate, and the title of “Europe's Hidden Hawaii”. If this isn't the perfect place for a day of surfing, what is?
Our certified instructors cater to all levels of skill to ensure you finish your lesson with new confidence and knowledge. After your pickup, you are introduced to the sport's basics with a quick theoretical session. If you're a beginner, no worries! We provide and explain all the equipment, so you'll be carrying your board like a pro by the time we're in the water.
Looking stylish in our wetsuits, we practice a bit before our two hours in the water. With our instructor's guidance, each wave is a welcome, exciting challenge. We practice everything from dynamic duck dives to eskimo rolls, finding the confidence to get on our feet. The beautiful volcanic sand on the beach and the perfect waves for learning make this experience unique and as fun as you can imagine.

We were on this surfing lesson with my boyfrind this summer and everything went well & smooth. We were planning to visit Madeira, but didn't even realize that there could be some surfing spots until we saw it on the website! The guides were really well prepared and encouraged us to overcome ourselves. They cheeringly celebrated every little attempt of a wave ride and paid attention that the rented gear fits us properly. I would definitely reccomend the experience and come back again.:))
