YOUR SURF COACH IN PENICHE

Hey there, future surfers. This is Rico, founder and headcoach at the Surf Taxi Peniche Surf School. Originally from Central Europe, he started surfing in Baleal, back in 2001. He hasn't missed a season, ever since.
 
In 2007, he started working as an assistant in one of the local surfcamps and one year later, he took a surf coach training in Morocco and became an ISA certified surf instructor. He moved to Baleal permanently in 2010 and after a year of freelancing for the different surf camps in Peniche, he finally decided to open his own surfschool, Surf Taxi Peniche.

Many of his former students are avid surfers now who keep coming back to Peniche every year. He describes h elping others learn how to surf as the the best thing in the world to him.  At Surf Taxi Peniche, Rico is always going to be your headcoach who will guide you along your progress in surfing. If there are more people than he can handle on his own (remember, we work with small groups), Rico has other certified coaches, who are amongst the best  surf guides in the area, at your disposition.

Honestly the best surf coach I have had (and I tried in different continents), Rico will be extra patient, provide you with all the equipment you need, choose the best spot and time to go for your level and explain the small details that you normally don't get from others. He also makes special sessions to record you so that he can show you how you surf, what to improve and then remind you when you are both out there. I went from nothing to sitting in the lineup in no time, overall I recommend him to anyone who really wants to learn and improve quickly.

Surf Taxi Peniche ? An acquaintance recommended we reach out to Enrique if we needed surf equipment, and boy where we glad we did ? Enrique sorted us right out! We learned about Peniche and the surrounding area, selected the ideal spot for our level and enjoyed a memorable session! Friendly, knowledgeable and helpful!! Certainly will be reaching out once I am back in Peniche! Obrigado Rico!! Stay stoked ??

I think the best way to explain how good as a surf instructor Rico is, is to tell the story of my friend who came to Portugal with me and initially said that, in contrast to me, he is not interested at all in making this a full-week surf trip and that he´ll just give it a one-day shot. Within our small group of surf beginners and intermediates it quickly became a running gag that he would ask Rico, the surf instructor, whether he can join one last time on the next day. Long story short, due to the great surf spot guidance, the amazing coaching itself and a great overall introduction to the surfing sport (including visiting a board manufacturer, video analysis etc.), my friend had no no other choice than make it a full week surf trip (with amazing progress btw) 😉 Cheers to Rico and his team for the experience, keep up the good work and the enthusiasm!

Great time with Surf Taxi Peniche! I booked “surf guiding” as I was in Peniche only for one day, had no board, no car, and no idea where to go. They hooked me up with a nice board and wetsuit, and got me straight to a good spot. Perfect setup for a quick timeframe. We checked the surf at a couple sites, and picked one with better waves that matched my level of skill well. Thanks Surf Taxi! I will come again!

Me and my friends spent an awesome week with Surf Taxi Peniche. The guides are super friendly, well prepared and know what theyre doing. We surfed at a variety of spots depending on the conditions. The lessons were not only very practical but, thanks to the guys, we also had a lot of fun in the water, as well as after the sessions. Our surfing skills have improved a lot. 🙂 They also know the region inside out and gave us some great tips about the activities around the area. We will definitely come back next year!

I spent a couple of days with surf taxi when I first arrived to Peniche. Went on the guided surf trips with them, checked out all the spots and of course surfed some really nice waves 🙂 The guides are all very helpful and professional. I say it's a good option if you need transportation and lessons in addition to your stay, but don't want to live in a surf camp.
