The monthly surf school, offers group and private lessons, level 1 or 2. The instructors are highly qualified and bilingual making our school the best place to learn how to surf.

The Surf School based at Rio Surf N Stay Hostel (Rua Raimundo Veras, 1140 – Recreio) is where we meet up with our students at preset times. We normally go to Pontal Beach by street 2W or in front of the first kiosk, next to life guard tower 12. This School is open for lessons all year round and don’t close through public holidays.

*Only for residents (brazilians or foreigners) / cannot be staying in the hostel.


In July we started a special surf group only for girls. All girls are welcome and groups will be divided by level of ability.

Girls that are starting, will be under our LEVEL 1 program, learning the aspects of ocean awareness, safety and the basic techniques of positioning on the board, paddling and standing up. The classes include other aspects as dealing with currents, etiquette and positioning on the line up.

Intermediate and advanced surfers will be under our LEVEL 2 head coach, Andre Silva, former pro surfer with years of experience competing around the world. At this level, the girls will be focusing on increasing the number of waves per session, specific maneuvers on their fore and back hand timing and positioning in the line up, equipment analysis, fitness and nutrition.

Level 2 sessions are filmed and participants will get together to check out the weekly footage.
