In our surf school, classes take place in Peniche, Baleal, or Praia da Areia Branca. The Peniche Peninsula, due to its geographical position, offers extraordinary conditions for surfing throughout the year, regardless of the skill level of each participant. Daily assessments of sea conditions are made, and beaches with the best conditions for the practice of the sport are selected, perfectly adapted to the participants’ skill levels.

We use high-quality wetsuits from the Deeply brand, providing you with greater comfort.

We offer boards of various types and sizes, suitable for the rapid progression of each individual.
