My friend and I wanted to have a surf "baptism" and we chose randomly this academy. I have to say both Marcelo and Eros made our day. We had two hours of great fun. From the technical training till the surfing we enjoyed every single minute. I recommend it to anyone who wants to try for the first time

We took the 3 day kite course with Marcelo and Felipe. The two were great. Marcelo has all the patience in the world with his students and helps you through the course. Felipe is an amazing surfer. Just watching him motivates. On the third day I was able to do the water start and stay on the water for a... More

The lesson was good overall but I had to leave the water early due to really struggling to get into the water over the waves and getting repeatedly injured. The instructor didn't really seem to bothered by this and ignored when I asked for help getting myself further into the water. Wouldn't recommend to a friend unless they had some... More

I was recently on vacation and took a wonderful kiteboarding lesson with Umberto. His skills were very impressive. I spent three days doing lessons with him and it was worth it. By the final day was very comfortable with the kite. Umberto was very good at explaining what i had to do tom make sure I was safe. He was... More

The teachers are very nice and friendly. The school is close to the beach and you don't need to carry the gear to many meters. You get equipment for kite, windsurf, SUP and surf. I will go to this place next time again. Lennart

Rented a board storage for a few weeks there. Great location at the beach, very relaxed and helpful staff. You can fit about one board and four sails in one locker. Thanks for the great time!

Excellent school. Located next to the kite spot. I trained with Marcelo (the owner): he is an excellent instructor and I highly recommend training with him (I did the beginner course and progressed very quickly). About the spot: 1) I was there mid May and the wind only seems to properly pick-up early afternoon (1-2pm) so not worth having your... More
