    I have been there for a week, the place is amazing, quiet and beautiful. Russo and Tonya are so friendly and thoughtful. Also the beaches couldn't be better. I have enjoyed the surf lessons very much, I recommend everyone to go there!

    I spend a week at Russo's this Summer 2019 - with my two teenage daughters. We stayed in a private room and loved it. Great atmosphere, great food and great waves ;-)) --- even for beginners. All perfect and almost the perfect 10 (if only the coffee machine was a bit better. The coffee cannot be drunk which can be hard if you get early to catch a wave. We'll be back (with our own coffee maker).

    Я хочу сказать большое спасибо Тоне и Руи за отличную неделю в кэмпе! Расположение кэмпа отличное,виды завораживают. Обстановка очень домашняя и душевная,уезжать совсем не хотелось. Еда ооочень вкусная, а порции огромные. Это был мой первый опыт серфинга, поэтому бороться с волнами было сложновато,но это очень круто. Организация и преподавание на высшем уровне, все объяснят и помогут. Океан - это любовь, я всем сердцем полюбила это место, надеюсь, скоро сюда вернуться.

    Had the most amazing stay here! The camp is in such a beautiful location and just up the hill from the best beach in the Algarve!
    Russo and Tonya were amazing hosts and all the staff there are super friendly, and also give amazing surf lessons!
    Whether it’s a party or just a chilled week in the sun, Russo surf camp hasn’t it all! Highly recommended!

    I spent such a great time in Vale Figueiras!
    It is more than just a Surfcamp.
    The surf teachers are very good, even if it's not easy with the beginners ; )
    You can have nice Yoga classes in the morning or in the evening.
    And I really loved the food!
    Thank you so much Tonya and Rui!
    You have a wonderful place with warmhearted people.
    I try to come back as soon as possible...!

    No hay mejor surfcamp ni mejor entorno para disfrutar de la magia del Algarve!
    Desde hace años es una visita obligada cada año por muchos motivos, y lo seguirá siendo.
    Las increíbles playas y paisajes son solo el principio, las olas, las noches en el camp, la comida,etc... Pero lo mejor sin duda es ir a visitar y pasar unos días junto a Russo, Tonya, Luis, Hannah y el resto del equipo, son más que amigos, se han convertido en parte de nuestra familia!
    Nos vemos pronto;)

    Russo's camp is as good as it gets, people! If you are looking for a very comfortable place in the middle of a beautiful nature reserve, a family atmosphere, outstanding surf lessons and guiding from the real locals, amazing and healthy local food all day every day, and good vibes all the way ... look no further because this is your place. Highly recommended!

    Dear Nomad,
    Only come few days but like 5 years ago it was so refreshing for the mind to come here.
    Still the same spirit, don’t change anything, thanks to all the staff. I will come back again soon.

    If you like surfing the best waves of the day don't mind eating the superb local food, and staying with true local experts, go there.

  • Sebastian Jacobs
    I´m realy suprised about the open and easy way to stay in vacation and to learn surfing. Best conditions to relax and do surfing. My daughters with 11 and 13 years enjoyed too, also without speaking anything words in english. Sebastian from Berlin.

  • Natalya Beneslavskaya
    I have been many places in Portugal, but liked here the most. Amazing landscapes, fresh air, cozy surfcamp, qualified instructors, good surfboards, friendly staff, warm owners, tasty food, people all over the world. The travel here definitely worth the money you spend!

    I was a pro-athlete - racing cyclist in the past and tried to surf the first time in my life in Vale Figueiras Surfcamp. This place became a great discovery for me.
    Great location with beautiful view in the middle of national park, close to the ocean, experienced coaches, opportunity of backhorseriding on your leisure time! Here you can ride the bicycle all year long, finding your dusty tracks or cruising on the asphalt roads. Good roads for cycling, no traffic at all and friendly drivers. Many interesting places around make a bike riding even more exiting!
    Climate, location, facilities and FOOD make this camp the perfect place for get ready for Triatlon and IRONMAN!
    Of course, the great role of Atlatic waves, unforgettable memories of surfing and positive emotions! Coaches would get the beginners ready for green waves, or improve the level of intermediates. And yoga lessons were so good to find your balance and connect your body and brain.
    Thank you!!
