“Amazing family surf camp with great, professional and happy staff!”

We participated in the family surf camp in Aug 2019. From start to finish, everything ran extremely smoothly: all staff were professional and friendly, and the surf instructors extremely skilled, patient and fun! Kids were in a group of their own with three fabulous teachers, and us absolute beginner parents were seen to by two other instructors. The location is beautiful as well, and we ended up having good food at Bar do Bruno at the “surf base” almost every day. Definitely recommend!

“Amazing surf camp experience”

I joined the family surf camp in July 2019 with my 10 years old son and 8 years old daughter. We were the only family in the camp and in the beginning I was not sure if I’ll be able to leave the kids and go surfing on my own but the instructors were so friendly, open and skilled so the kids felt comfortable without me standing near and holding their hands 🙂 My goal was to show my children what the surfing is about and give them a chance to like it so that some years later we could surf together. Now I see that I’ve chosen the right first school to achieve the goal – the Baleal Surfcamp 🙂 We are planning to come back next summer and repeat.
Many thanks to our instructors Gonsalo and Lucia!
The staff in the camp was also very friendly and helpful.


So we all definitely had an amazing week with the Baleal Surfcamp. See you in 2020! 🙂

“Unforgettable experience to share!!!”

It doesn’t need to go too far away to live the dream….three weeks in Peniche, 15 surf lessons each , for my daughter Clarissa and me, and the dream came true…I am very greatful to my landlord who advised me to choose the Baleal surf camp. We spent three amazing weeks learning the basics of surf, masterfully taught by two really outstanding instructors: Ulysses and Luis. Proficient as much as nice professionals, we were able to gradually improve, day after day, thanks to their precious teachings and solid competence. I really appreciated their approach, assertive but easygoing at the same time. Ulysses and Luis focused on our weaknesses and failings and prompted us to “push the envelope” when necessary, helping to build up our self-confidence and enhancing progressively our skills. The proper ratio instructor-students (normally no over 1:4) and the wide experience of the instructors allowed both of us (especially me who I am past my prime !) to reach unexpected results….in my third week I started to catch  my first “green waves” by myself….simply awesome!! And my daughter is more keen on surfing than ever and looks forward to repeat this exciting experience!! So, once again, I want to thank the Baleal surf camp staff, and Ulysses and Luis above all; not only did they live up (and beyond) to our expectations, they also contributed to make me live and share this  unforgettable experience with my daughter…memories we will keep for ever. I strongly
recommend the Baleal Surf Camp to whoever wants to learn surf from real professionals as well as have fun!! Give them a chance; you won’t be disappointed!!
