Calhau surf school is the best school we have visited so far. Very easy going, awesome and expertised instructors! Their team is good to help catch waves for each level from beginner to intermediate. Personally I would recommend to stay at least three days with them to see how you can improve skills in very short amount of time. Five stars for sure! – Marko Ventola onFacebook
