FilSurf School is a licensed business and permitted surf school. We maintain the operation requirements of the Portuguese Surf Federation, Turismo de Portugal, I.P. (Portugal Tourism), The Instituto da Conservação da Natureza e da Biodiversidade, I.P. – ICNB (Institute for Nature Conservation and Biodiversity) and Capitania do Porto de Lagos (Captaincy of the Port of Lagos).
Our team of certified instructors will teach you essential fundamentals and will work with you individually on your surfing technique to ensure that you learn to surf the correct way, without creating “bad habits”. No matter your skill level, you will learn the basics of board handling, positioning, paddling, and technique on getting to your feet, surfing etiquette, ocean knowledge, and water safety.
FilSurf School is the leader in group packages! Group lessons are for groups up to eight people. Bring your friends and start your own group or meet new surfers in one of our group lessons. An experienced local guide will drive the group to the best spot depending on wind and swell conditions.
It is amazing how proper surf instruction can accelerate your learning curve, relieving most frustrations beginning surfers endure. Our personal, friendly, qualified instructors will encourage and guide your rapid progression. You will receive that special attention needed in a private surf lesson.
