“Hi Jose

I would just like to share our feedback on our summer camp in Portugal. It was out first ever surf camp and went in somewhat blind and I followed your judgement and was happy I did so. We really had a great, great time. The house with our private bathroom was perfect and exactly to our taste and liking as a family, (the camp’s main house wouldn’t have been right for us) the food was wonderful but mostly it was the teaching and the teachers. The teaching was professional, progressive, motivational, methodical and fun, really good and exactly what I was wanting as any prior teaching I’d had had all been too lose and random. All the teachers were all so nice and the vibe was perfect and we were so touched at how they were all with our son leo, he caught his first big wave under their great judgement, really cool and inspiring.

I wonder wether it would be at all possible if you could pass on a message to Sonia, one of the teachers, I never got to say a big thank you for everything and a goodbye from us.

Once again the surf camp was brilliant and we will only have good things to say about Nomad Surfers, we are even thinking about going to your Bali surf camp.

Best of wishes”




I am just back from a week in VALE FIGUEIRAS and I loved it.

The tuition was excellent and particularly for beginners.

Every member of staff at the camp was so friendly and the food and lunches were excellent. The camp was clean and can highly recommend it. Will definitely be back.”

“To all at Nomad,

I just wanted to say thank you to you all for the fantastic surf holiday my two boys had in Portugal.

Apparently the instructors were fantastic, the food delicious and it was an all round huge success.

They are already asking if the camp is open in October?

Thank you to everyone!”
