Classes

The Azores Surf School, the first Surf School in the Azores, has been teaching since 2004!

We offer surfing classes for all levels and ages in a safe, fun and professional way!

Helping students cope and overcome fear with confidence and knowledge is one of our goals!

We ensure specific conditions for each level of learning, and classes for beginners will only be carried out with good conditions. On days of bad weather, too strong winds and waves, or in case, for some reason, the existing conditions for the practice of the modality show signs of lack of security, the classes will be immediately canceled.

Surfing is not an easy sport, it requires a lot of persistence and dedication. However, it is magical and extremely rewarding for body and mind!

With the Azores Surf School, fun and adventure will be a guarantee and the will to return to the sea, a constant!
