This Surfcamp is truly special and the guys who run the thing, do it by heart. This was my first time ever on a surf board and I enjoyed it very much and felt safe. The teache

s are absolutely great! The camp is nice and clean, with cozy spots to hang out inside and outside. We either went out for dinner all together or Luiz cooked a wonderful meal for us

Nicole Gnädinger 5 / 5

The week in Gota d‘Agua Surfcamp was amaaaazing. It is 25min. from Lisbon and easiest way to reach is UBER or they can pick you up at the airport. The camp crew is so nice &

cool. Luiz spoiled us with delicious dinners & BBQ, we had great suflessons with Gonçalo & Ari und I want to thank Ricardo for the perfect last minute organisation (I booked 1 day in advance) The 4-bed rooms where so nice & clean as well as the bathroom. There is also a nice outdoor chillout area with a bar & pinpong table and a big table where all eat the dinner together. That was a lovely week and I can just recommand Gota d‘Agua Surfcamp.

Onur Urun 5 / 5

This was my verry first surfing holiday and I really enjoyed the lessons. The teachers are experienced and make you feel comfortable, they are really cool guys. The hostel is

ozy and has everything you expect from a hostel. Ricardo and the Gota D'agua gang make you feel like you are part of the family so the vibes are really cool. I might definitly come back for more lessons in the future. Even during covid they manage to do group activities in a responsibble way so you wont get bored and have plenty of fun. Didnt know what to expect when I arrived here, but it was amazing. Thankyou guys, groetjes uit Hollanda!!

Quentin Musset 5 / 5

Compare to others, this camp is very unique. The location is perfect, close to the best beach to learn how to surf and very close to the city. Their houses have everything we

eed, modern equipment, comfortable bedroom, chill living room, ping pong, soccer table and even a bar! But what makes this place special is the vibe created by their team, they are very inclusive people, you will never feel alone and you will leave this place filled with memories and new friendships.
