Lessons with a Champion
Our champion is Marcos Anastácio, who was Portuguese surf champion in the Nineties. Impressive in the sea, he also always stood out outside the water due to his strong personality and for is crusade in defense of a strategic approach to surf, pointing it out as important for the development of the country. After leaving the professional circuit, Marcos created Angels Surf School and, more recently, Portugal Surf Rentals. He still surfs and now he can be your mentor.
What else you need to know
I have been following the work of Marcos and his team for many years, which led me to try this new service. I confess I did not have many expectations, but the results were excellent! The feedback and training with Marcos and Carlos were impeccable - a program tailored to my level. The correction of gross errors from many years ago brought immediate results.
Despite surfing for over 20 years, my desire to evolve has never diminished. When Marcos, with all his experience and professional surfing background, challenged me to practice with him and Carlos, I didn't hesitate. It was an amazing experience to see me filmed. Through on-screen visual aids, verbal input during training and video self-review, I was able to notice and correct minor errors in positioning, weight distribution and body movements. It had an immediate impact on surfing. It is a highly recommended experience for anyone who wants to evolve!
Excellent surf training experience. Finally, a tailor made program that allowed me to progress and reach a higher level on surfing technique.
I arrived in Portugal a week ago and this is my first surf lesson in my entire life. My friends told me that Portugal is very good for surfing, therefore I had to try it out and it was amazing. I had a lot of fun and very good experience. Definitely an experience to repeat. And maybe I can bring some friend with me next time.
This was my first lesson at Angels Surf School and I enjoyed it very much. I was so happy to be able to do everything that I was asked for. In my opinion it was all much easier because the instructor knew how to talk a perfect English, and in that way I understood everything he was explaining to me. Above all I was very well received and treated in the best way. I really loved it, and I’ll come back.
Today I had my second lesson at Angels Surf School. The class once again it was amazing, and I did the take-off perfectly this time, so I was very happy after that. It feels good. What I love about this school is the attention that they give to you every single moment, so I’m not afraid at all. And when I came back today, they still remembered my name. That was really nice.
Inscrevi-me na variante de aperfeiçoamento das aulas com Personal Trainer porque sabia que ainda podia melhorar o meu surf. Filmaram-me a surfar, definiram-me um plano de treino individual e com a ajuda do Marcos e do Kiren evoluí bastante e agora estou bem melhor. Vale a pena o investimento. E sempre que posso, lá estou eu a telefonar ao Marcos para ele me dar mais umas dicas.
Surfing has been fundamental to Unbabel, it's crucial for the team's well being. Angels Surf School always delivered an exceptional service and dedication to Unbabel with amazing instructors and a philosophy that mirrors the best of surfing. With them we discover that surfing isn't all about adrenaline, it's also a combination of zen and well-being in life.
Progression lessons are great and teachers give us a lot of support. In a short amount of time I was able to eliminate many mistakes and improve my surfing skills. Besides, the lessons are always fun.
I am very glad to be a member of Angels' family. These 3 years changed my life completely. I was able to evolve thanks to the great teachers, specially to "Nozes", that was patient enough to put up with me all this time and help me improve my surfing skills drastically. Thank you for everything!
