Overview

Fish Surf School is certified by the Portuguese Surfing Federation (FPS). The technical team consists of trainers with a degree in Physical Education and Sport, assistants accredited by the FPS, with vast experience in teaching children and young people in different sports. Our students have access to all the equipment necessary to start, perfection and develop their technique in the discipline practiced (surfboard or body board, wet suits, leash, fins), avoiding the acquisition of material that soon becomes inadequate to the respective level of learning.
