Filipe and Rita, just wanted to thank you for one of the most amazing weeks in my life! It was so much fun, and my body still hurts from all the surfing. I and Mikaela are really thinking about coming back in summer to you guys. Thank you again for everything, you were so nice. HUGS and kisses!
Yes, everything was great. I’ve told all the people that the vacation was the best for a long time. Really nice and relaxing. The Praia Amoreira is a superb beach at least for beginners like us. In the mid October it was also almost empty. Only one morning was very difficult because of the waves and very strong currents. The end of season made many other things easier as well, I’d say, because there were less people around. I really enjoyed Filsurf and the way Filipe was with the kid was great. Thank you for your service! I’m sure I’ll be back if I only get a chance.
Amazing fun water experience, friendly and knowledgable staff. Lovely accomodation and it was easy to find the main building. Nightlife on the west coast near the see is amazing and wild. Will come again next year with friends.
We had a very good holiday in Lagos with a bit of mixed weather which looked just like home at times! We were not disappointed with the main reason we chose Lagos, which was to try out surfing in a warm and not crowded location with good beaches and instructors. The service provided by Rita & Filipe from FilSurf school (the only one I believe that caters for family groups) was excellent from collection in the surf mobile (9 seater) to mastering the waves at a secluded beach with a cafe, about 30kms from Lagos in the National Park. This work is much more than a job for Filipe who lives to surf! The waves were excellent for beginners and only for his patience and repeated instructions I would not have got up on the board at 49 years young. We tried the surfing between 1 and 4 days depending on interest, age & ability and enjoyed the lessons split over a full day 9.30 – 5.00.
Rita and Filipe – I’m really glad that I participated in surf camp which you organized. You made my vacation! My expectations before trip were just to have a bit of fun and at least one stand up on a surf board, but you gave added value to everything. I believe that the work you do is done with your heart, and this is the reason why everything succeeds so well.
Thanks, we had a great time – the rest of the family loved the surfing and Fil was brilliant. He really looked after us well and is such a nice guy. We saw groups from other schools and they didn’t appeal at all – too many people, too impersonal – it was great that we had such close attention and he related well to the kids. So good we found him! We’ll be back!
Awesome! Good weather, good waves, relax a bit at the beach, and my friend Marco also got the feeling of surfing. Fil, thanks a lot again for the fantastic experience, was fun!
