The Azores Surf Center provides surf lessons and surf equipment rental. We are here to help with any of your surfing needs! Group and private surf lessons are available for all levels and ages and we have a wide variety of rental equipment, beginner/intermediate/advanced surfboards, bodyboards and SUPs.
We rent beginner foam boards, intermediate fun boards/mini-mals and a wide range of shortboards for advanced surfers as well as winter (4:3) and summer (3:2) wetsuits. We also rent bodyboards and fins and stand-up paddle boards.
We are open all year but our surf school at Santa Barbara beach is only open during the summer months (June-October). During the rest of the year please contact us by phone/e-mail if you would like to get in touch.
Lessons are held at Santa Barbara beach from June-September and at Milícias/São Roque/Agua d'alto beach from November-May.
The weather in the Azores is unpredictable, especially during the winter months so lessons can cancelled at last minute, if so we offer a full refund or the chance to move your lesson to another more suitable day.
