Surfing lessons in Portugal? Where?

« on: July 27 2008 09:07:00 »

I'm going to Portugal in August with my parents. And my dad got a really good idea that I could maybe take some surf lessons. Now, i have few questions.

Where is the best place to surf for beginners?

I'm looking for a nice place where i could borrow all the equipment and where i could also get a surf coach for one or two days.

I've looked websites but they just offer coaching AND accommodation, which i don't need it. I just need lessons and equipment for max. two days.

Thank you, for all your suggestions

Hi Ana, there are several good places for you to learn how to surf, but if you want to try a small village with beautifull beach breakes and not too much crowd -  the ideal to learn -, you can come to Santa Cruz Surf Academy, and you can, only have surf lessons, rent the material.. for sure we will find a solution for your needs.
Have a look on our web site
See you,
