Far more than a surf school, we’re a lifestyle! Our surf school is located in São Vicente, Madeira Island’s capital of surfing, and we’re the perfect choice for your surfing experience or SUP tours on the island.
Whether you’re a beginner, an expert, a professional athlete or rather curious about this lifestyle, here you’ll find waves that suit your level of expertise over a breath-taking landscape. Our life takes place in the ocean, so we offer you a varied set of experiences ranging from SURF to SUP: a one-time experience or packs of private/group lessons, specialized training or just a couple of lessons for beginners, the choice is yours! We’ll give our very best to make you enjoy, as safely as possible, an authentic experience where you’ll feel at one with nature and the ocean!
Our SHAPE ROOM…
Being truly passionate about surf, this is where we spend our free time, working on our own-brand in-house manufactured boards!
We are the only board workshop in Madeira Island (Madeira Shape Room), where we make all kinds of repairs and manufacture surfboards. We repair all types of boards: Surfboards, Windsurf, Stand Up Paddle, Kite, Wake and Skimming boards, among other equipment. Our boards are handcrafted and customisable to the client’s liking. We also ensure the highest quality in the maintenance of the surfboards locally. Our workshop was created by Ruben Afonso, a shaper and surfer who was born in Madeira Island and who was lucky enough to meet, work with and learn from shapers such as Gonçalo Martins, Manila, Abílio Pinto, Malcolm Campbell, Nick Uricchio and Grant Twig Baker. By gaining experience, it wasn’t long before he had the will and the opportunity to create his own surfboard brand: Blind Surfboards by Oficina do Ceguinho.
