Overview

Since 1996 we've grown into what we hope is the best Surf School in the Algarve, with the top hostels in both Sagres & Lagos, and Surf Shop with a wide range of products. The Surf School still remains at the heart of the company. Learning to surf is the most exciting part about surfing, we've all been beginners at some point & we want to make this experience the best one in the world for you!
