In partnership with SurfMilfontes, Stand Up Paddle Alentejo is the school which provides SUP classes. Here, you’ll work out your arms, legs, core and balance in a healthy and fun way and surrounded by Nature.

Diogo Queimada is the SUP instructor and not only won two SUPwaves National championships but is also a Surf trainer certified by the Portuguese Surfing Federation since 2006.

During Stand-Up Paddle Milfontes lessons you’ll be taught how to paddle with confidence and to feel secure standing up on a paddleboard. For those who want a bit more then flat-water supping, the second level will teach you how to catch and surf waves.

However, it is always important to be aware that our SUP-Waves’ lessons are highly dependent on weather conditions, so we usually have to wait for the right conditions and the perfect environment to practice.

EverY class includes:

  • Material – SUP board and paddle;
  • Personal Accident and Indemnity Insurance;
  • Transportation to the beach (if necessary);
  • 2H/class;
  • 10% discount in our store.
