The employees are all very nice and hard workers. The only thing they don't get is respect of the owners. I uploaded one picture as a prove. I am glad the people are having a good time in Portugal. But this is all thanks to the employees. They are running the camp for the bosses and still there is no...

On the journey there you may be wondering where the place is?...But as soon as you arrive you realise that this little hidden gem, tucked away along the southwest coast of Portugal is something special. Close to some good surf and kite spots, and with a crew that really know how to make you feel welcome. Gets a thumbs up...

I have taken five surf lessons, four days wave surfing and one day kite surfing. I enjoyed the lessons very much. The surf coaches are very friendly and instruct very well. The same goes for the people working at the camp, they are very friendly and helpful. Everything was so easy to arrange, e. g. the pickup from Lagos to...

We (a couple) came for a one week stay with kite surfing lessons at Atlantic Riders Surf Camp. Even though we had a bit of bad luck with the wind, we enjoyed it so much that we spontaneously stayed for a second week! The camp has a great and relaxed atmosphere run by a flexible and always helpful team and...

For me the Atlantic Riders surfcamp became to feel like my home away from home! I went there to spend a week in may 2014, mainly just to be by myself, the beach, the water, the surf... but in the end i did not want to leave, and actually directly booked to come back in september-october for 2,5 weeks!

I don't know what happened since these other reviews were written or whether these are not real reviews, but I just spent a week at Atlantic Riders surf camp and it was one of the worst run operations I've ever experienced. It started as soon as we got there with the disappointments. No one greeted us or gave us any...

Dear Kyle, I appreciate your review on your holiday with us. All points you mentioned are valid and I remember clearly that you and I extensively discussed your experiences on Wednesday of that week at Arrifana beach over a coffee. The room mixup and the meal plan were both due to the fact that we changed location with brand new...
