Surf coach Peniche

Hey future surfers. I am Rico, your personal coach at the Surf Taxi Peniche Surf School. Originally from central europe, I started surfing in Peniche/Baleal in 2001 and try not to miss a season ever since. In 2007 I started working as an assistant in one of the local surfcamps and one year later, I took my training in Morocco and became a ISA certified surf instructor. In 2010 I moved to Baleal permanently and after freelancing for the many surf camps in peniche for another year, I finally decided to open Surf Taxi Peniche.

Many of my former students are avid surfers now, that come back to Peniche every year. Helping others to learn surfing, is still the best thing in the world to me.  At Surf Taxi Peniche, I will always be your headcoach and guide you along your progress. If there is more people than I can handle on my own, I hire additional, certified coaches from amongst the best surf guides in Peniche.

Reserve your spot for our Peniche surf school now. If you have any questions regarding the surf course or your time in Peniche, feel free to ask. Make sure to check our special mid- and low season rates!

Rental Surfboards

Depending on your level and style, we provide you with surfboards in all shapes and sizes. For beginners, small waves and crowded lineups, large boards between 7’0 and 9’0 ft. are the best choice, preferrably so called soft-tops. Intermediate and advanced surfers commonly use smaller, thinner and lighter boards.

Longboard, mini malibu, shortboard, fish, custom boards or evolution shapes – we will find the right board for your needs.
