Spent a week in Sept 2016 surfing with Jah Shaka at their Tiny Whale lodge. The whole trip was great from start to finish, the staff were friendly, surf was great, food was top and the instructing was attentive. No complaints. I was slightly apprehensive prior to going as this was a first time travelling solo, if there's anyone in...

The place we stayed is called Tiny Wale not Jah Shaka as advertised, not sure why. Overall its a lovely backpackers/surf camp. Didnt like the fact that is 15min out of town but it was nice coming home to a peaceful garden setting and big pool. We stayed in the tipis, very cool, comfortable beds and cool in evening. Shared...

I borrowed a stand up-paddleboard from this shop for ten days in July. I had emailed them prior to my trip and Richard was very accommodating about my request. The price of the rental was even discounted. When I got to the shop, the crew were very helpful and friendly. Since I had rented a paddleboard from them, I was...

I spent a week glamping with Joh Shaka Surf Lodge in Lux Portugal - I was impressed with the friendliness and quality of their offering. Accommodations were excellent, the food was nothing short of delicious - thai food one night was probably the best I have ever tasted. Yoga was run in-house, Wifi, pool. The staff and instructors were delightful,...

I have never met a group of instructors so utterly enthused to be out in Portugal living and sharing their dream. We didn't stay at the lodge, but the surf teaching was superb. Would definitely recommend.

I used the equipment from this store in town and they were very friendly and helpful. Rented a paddleboard for 20€ and a bike for 15€! Good prices for making the most of your stay to explore and have your own adventures! They also offer many tour and adventure as well as a surf camp which I'm sure would also...

I just got back from a week at The Tiny Whale Surf Lodge and it was an absolute thumper of a week. I booked a shared room but ended up getting a double room to myself - RESULT! The Green Wave Rider instructors were Jan and Henry - both of them are absolute gents and excellent teachers. From a surfing...

This company was very helpful when trying to book a kayaking trip. Unfortunately the sea was too rough to kayak and we were reassured that the trip was cancelled (despite other companies prepared to take customers out to sea). The trip was re-scheduled but we were unable to go a second time due to the weather - we were given...

This place was great! The staff was super helpful and friendly and they had everything we needed. They kept our stuff for us in a back room while we went stand up paddle-boarding and showed us a nice route to take. The were very easy going and made it easy to rent. Prices are very reasonable as well!

I spent three nights solo at Jah Shaka for a proposed SUP (stand up paddle) surfing trip. My review is solely based on the SUP side of the stay and not the property. I'd been in contact with the operators numerous times in the lead up to my stay both via email and phone to ensure I would be catered...
