Sagres surf school offers courses for all levels of surf so, it doesn't matter if you have never surfed before or if you are a more experienced surfer looking to improve your surf skills!

Each day participants are divided into groups (no more than 8 students per instructor) according to their surf level. English, Portuguese and German spoken.

We love teaching beginners! Surf lessons begin on the sand with the warm up and introduction to surf technique and safety measures. Shortly after it's time to jump in the water! Don't worry, you will start in waist depth, riding white water and will be taught everything from standing technique's to learning to turn and finally paddling outside and learning how to catch your first 'green' (unbroken) waves, usually after 3 to 5 days of surf lessons.
Surf lessons include all the necessary surf equipment - surfboard, wetsuit, leash, rash vest, etc. - and you are taught how to handle the equipment in a safe environment.

The typical surf day includes a morning session followed by lunch break and the afternoon surf session. There is also time to chill out and enjoy the very best beaches in Algarve!
