Have you always dreamt of surfing Madeira Island? Let us help you with that dream.

We will pick you up from your accommodation and take you to the best surf spots Madeira has to offer and introduce you to surf. Our spots are carefully chosen according to the current wave and weather forecast.

After a short briefing, warm-up, and practice on the sand, we will go into the water and surf! Yes, you will surf a wave! You will achieve something in two hours that took me six months to learn alone and with friends over 30 years ago.

I'm Roberto Filipe. I was born and raised in Lisbon during the '70s and I am passionate about the sea and the mountains.

I started surfing in 1984 then in 1999 I moved to Madeira because of the surf.

Here I started working in adventure tourism with one of the best companies and active tourism teams at the time.

As a coach and judge of surfing, I have been linked to the growth of national surfing, having been a founding partner of ASCC - Surf Association of Costa da Caparica, Portugal mainland back in '94.

In 2012 I found Aroundfreedom. An active tourism company and Surf School, specializing in Surf and SUP .

Since then, I'm showing this beautiful Island and creating memories and smiles with our guests that last forever.

Come and join us on our unbelievable experiences!

Madeira is a great place for surfing! The waves were treacherous but our teachers were great. We ended up doing more surfing closer to the beach and got pummeled by many waves but had so much fun!!! Be prepared for some physical exertion and definitely book with aroundfreedom for any water experiences.

Sehr nette Surf-Lehrer, die einem auf einfachverständliche Weise die Grundlagen beibringen, so dass man schon beim ersten Mal Erfolge feiern kann.

Roberto is a great teacher for surfing! He did great and took his time to explain how to stand up, safety and the rules of surfing at crowded places

Thank you for this wonderful experience. It was as great as I expected. I’m a beginner and although the waves were big and rather difficult for beginners, we all managed to surf quite a bit. It was absolutely fantastic and I had a lot of fun. I already booked an other class with Roberto and his team and am very much looking forward to it.

Great experience. It was my first surfing class ever, and I was already able to stand on the board confidently, and catch the waves :) Even though it looked like today there wouldn't be any waves, Roberto was able to find a beautiful place with big waves 🌊 We were super happy :)

The lesson was spot on! You can really mark Roberto's words when he says that you are going to learn something in only a couple of hours. I was able to ride the waves and the accomplishment afterwards fellt amazing! definitely surfing again, hopefully ASAP! Big thanks to Aroundfreedom.
