Aldo was born in South Africa and has been surfing for over 17 years. Aldo understands the importance of good instructing and you will always see him in the water with his pupils pushing students onto waves and yelling plenty of encouragement!
Antonio's creative approach to his classes ensure everyone has a fun and memorable time. As a qualified homeopath he also likes to add his alternative knowledge including yoga in his lessons.
Lauren is a qualified yoga teacher, Hawaiian massage therapist, and cacaoista. She is currently studying astrology and naturopathy. Weaving all her passions together, along with her love of nature and the ocean, the practices Lauren offers include yoga both in-flow and in stillness to purify, breath work to cleanse and bring focus, sacred rituals as acts of self-love, meditations, and Yoga Nidra to find moments of peace, and a hot stone massage to release in deep relaxation.

"Had the best week"
This was my first time surfing so I didn’t know what to expect, and I am so happy I went to Aldo’s and Sarah’s place. They are the friendliest hosts, I felt at home right from the start.
I went for a place with food included mainly for the convenience of it, but the food was AMAZING! Very diverse, always more than enough and always super tasty.
Surfing itself was also great. All instructors really know their stuff, are very supportive and relaxed all the time. They give you personal tips and pointers on how to improve all the time. Felt perfectly safe and supported at all times, we had great fun. Even as a complete beginner you see results pretty quickly.
Yoga classes were also great, very calm and relaxed and perfectly adapted to the intensity of surfing every day. Lauren is the friendliest person alive and really listens to what you need and adapting the program accordingly. Hey Magee was the best massage I ever had, hands down.
I can only recommend them. If you surf in the Algarve, this is the place!
