Private Surf Coaching


During the past 25 years as a fully qualified surf instructor, lifeguard and personal coach I have been privileged to give people the opportunity to fall in love with surfing at every level and age group either as a hobby, a passion or just pure surf obsession!

Working extensively throughout Europe and beyond with my clients Hotzone private surf lessons can take you on an exciting and rewarding journey along the beautiful and varied Portuguese coastline.

Using regional and local knowledge along with my vast surf coaching experience, together we will find the best surf spots and conditions available to suit your ability and personality in a safe and enjoyable environment.

You will receive a carefully planned individual and tailored surf teaching program based upon your desires and what you would like to best achieve and experience from the time with Hotzone private surf lessons in Portugal.

From the world class famous waves in and around Ericeira in the north of Portugal to the popular resorts and surfers paradise on the Algarve – Hotzone private surf coaching can deliver fun and personal progression for those seeking a more focussed and rewarding surf experience.

I’m here to help you find the best waves and the very best mindset possible.

Let me join you in your journey and quest to achieve your personal goals.

What are you waiting for?

Full surf lessons include board, wetsuit and water and fruit. Transfer to beach and back. You just need to bring a towel, bathing clothes and some comfortable clothes for the beach. Own equipment 10% discount.
The lessons will be one booking at the time. In consultation with you and other clients, when levels of bookings match, I will suggest to put surfers of the same level together. This because it is nice to share your stoke with fellow surfers and meet like-minded people.
With more than two students, there will be an assistant teacher to ensure the quality and the feel of a private coaching setting.
