Olá. I am Ruben but my friends call me "ceguinho" :) Born and raised in Madeira, I love to share my culture with people who visit our Island. I am friendly and passionate about big wave surfing and Stand up Paddling. I work as a surf and SUP instructor in Clube Naval São Vicente surf school. I have my own surfboard workshop and I am proud to be the first Madeiran shaper. I have been competing since I was a kid, first started with windsurfing, surfing and some years ago on Stand Up paddling. I won some regional and national awards all this past years and have been training on the most higher competition levels with participations on the national teams and international competitions like European and World championships. check out my insta @ Ruben_ceguinho

Ich hatte mit Ruben meine erste Surfstunde und es war klasse! Er sucht einen guten Spot mit guten Bedingungen und sagt dir genau, welche Wellen du nehmen musst. Ruben war sehr flexibel, obwohl ich recht spontan gebucht habe. Kann ich nur empfehlen.

You can tell about the teacher according to his student’s achievements. Yes, I did surf the very first time in my life! :) Not laying, but standing on the board. Great experience! Seixal beach was fantastic. The waves were perfect for the beginner. Ruben is very accurate, nice - the real professional. By the way, I booked the group lesson, but it was private and high level. Would do it again. Thumbs up!

Ruben was fantastic, and had a few moments on the board which I didn't think would happen. The experience was better than I expected, and Ruben was much better than other surf groups that came to the beach, in terms of covid and teaching! Defo recommend :)

We had a great experience with Ruben. It was our first time, he made us feel comfortable and accomplished! He is very knowledgeable, not only about Surfing but also pin pointing different ways that each of us could improve, get on the board and long term tips. I absolutely recomend it and i will be doing it again!! Thanks again Ruben!

I can highly recommend this course for beginners! Ruben is a super friendly tutor who is actually spending a lot of time and motivation for you to stand up and „ride your first wave ;)“. I felt really comfortable and would book his class anytime again.
