Big fun, small groups

Our aim is to offer high quality lessons, with an emphasis on the safety and well-being of our students, with a maximum of 8 students per coach .

You can count on our qualified surf instructors, who have the required licenses and bring years of teaching experience as well as private and competition surfing experience.

To learn how to surf, lessons are always given on foam boards (softop type) and include an introduction and a theoretical lesson.

Let’s meet Cisco,
our head surf coach

ASL : Hey, can you introduce yourself?

Cisco : Hi, my name is Francisco, but everyone knows me as Cisco and I’m your surf coach.

ASL : Where are you from Cisco?

Cisco : I’m from Portugal and started riding the waves 20 years ago. I started with bodyboarding, then competition. It was then that I began to discover the intense sensations of skiing. Then I took up surfing.

ASL : Are you passionate, have you been teaching for a long time?

Cisco : I’ve been teaching surfing and really enjoying it for 10 years now.

Surfing is my passion and I can’t imagine a life where I would live away from the ocean. It is for me a therapy, a connection with the natural elements and a way of life.

Come on, enough talking, join us at the Atlantic Surf Lodge to share this wonderful experience with the rest of us. Shaka!
