Booked a private 1-1 lesson and could not have been happier! Ricardo was my instructor and he was so patient… would watch and analyze every time I tried and make adjustments for me so I could succeed! A bit out of shale but he helped make it work and not what fun it was! Beautiful day on the water, very well organized. I would recommend bringing a towel so you could dry off after when changing into dry clothes!!!

Great activity to do with a group. Independently cycle through Porto (the center is a bit of a difference in height, but it is perfectly doable along the coast). The surf part was great. Explanation clear and after 1.5 hours most of the energy was gone. The dining area at soundmix was fine, nice to get to a place where the locals sit and not the average tourist. Food and drink was of excellent quality.

This experience was amazing!! Joáo was a phenomenal instructor for beginners! This was so fun to do in Porto, even when it is 50 degrees!!

Absolutely loved this experience. The trainers are very knowledgeable, patient and passionate. This is a must.

Joao is a great coach as well as the surfing spot!
