    Beatriz was an amazing teacher. It was my girlfriend and I's first time surfing and she made us both feel safe and... comfortable. She provided the boards and wet suits and met us at the beach for a great 2.5 hour surfing lesson. Her English was great as well and we were able to easily understand all her instructions and lessons. Highly recommend her surf school if you're in Milfontes!read more
