I booked a week of surf guiding in November and was disappointed by the experience. First of all it's more a surf package than a surf camp: hotel working with a surf school, so if you travel on your own, it can be more difficult to meet people as no communal area (aside from the breakfast area) at the hotel....

We booked a beginner lesson for 4 people (3 adults and an 11 year old) - having never surfed before the instructors were great talking through the basics before we tried it out for real in the water. We all managed to stand up and could not fault the instruction / equipment - thanks for a great experience!

I did SUP for the first time today. Alec at Wavesensation was the best instructor you can ask for. The waves were pretty fierce today, but he guided the group through masterfully! Thanks Alec for helping Everette today! Please visit Wavesensation and ask for Alec. He is the best!!!!!

I didn't book surf lessons at wavesensations, just rented a board for three days. It wasn't the cheapest rental in Sagres, but definitely the most professional one I found. The staff was very friendly and their service was great! Thank you!
