Great teacher During a short january holiday in Carvoeiro my girlfriend gifted me a surf lesson. It was awesome. We went to a great spot on the west coast (arrifana) for a three hour private lesson. The scenery was amazing, the lesson was great: Duarte is very passionate about surfing and a patient teacher. During the entire lesson he was in the water giving instructions. It was pretty intense and i caught (or tried to catch) countless waves. I would certainly recommend Duarte and his school!
