About the adventure

Located on the Cocoa Coast, in southern Bahia, the small town of Itacaré offers surf, paradise beaches, waterfalls and all the joy of Bahia. Known as “The Hawaii of Brazil”, this city has been frequented by surfers since the ’80s and is currently a place where people go to connect with nature’s tropical climate and an average temperature of 27 degrees.


The Surf School offers to everyone who wants to have the experience of surfing, a program with 6 days of surf lessons with experienced instructors, who will adapt to your surf level, held on our daily pick of the stunning surf beaches. Each lesson consists of approximately 4 hours on the beach, not counting headquarters preparation time nor trips to and from the beaches, and in small, same-level groups with a guaranteed minimum ratio of 1 instructor per 3 students, in order to get you maximum individual learning progress during your surf course. Besides, you’ll learn about waves, tide, swell, currents, peaks, rules, surf lingo etc., in our complete Surf Manual that you will receive by email.


Please note that we require a minimum of 4 surfing days (not counting Sundays which are off, nor arrival and departure dates so as to avoid conflicts with flight schedules), because we believe that 4 days only is already a very short number of lessons to actually learn something from the beginning or even to correct something, and thus it is our minimum limit for acceptance of a course duration in order to develop a good job on our part.


To further accelerate learning success, the surf lessons from Monday to Friday are filmed with digital equipment by our cameraman. The video is watched and analyzed in seminars (Mon-Fri) that usually happens at the Surf School headquarter right after the practical lesson, with an average duration between 1h and 1.5h. These seminars are taught by one of the instructors who will comment on the waves and pinpoint corrections, setting individual goals for the next day.

Very Good
  1. The surf experience was incredible!

    Amazing. The surf experience was incredible! Sadly we didn’t have time do it for more days. The school is really good, the instructors are professional and they are many, so there is always someone helping you. In 3 days we were already taking our first waves. Itacaré is a paradise. Many wonderful beaches, one more beautiful than the other, especially the one that we had the lessons. To get there we had to walk through a trail in the middle of the jungle. Big thanks to PlanetaEXO to give us this experience!

  2. Excellent surf school and people
    By Amr. E
    from Brazil

    I’ve been to about 10 surf schools around the world and this one is by far the best! They follow a very clear system and training approach that has been proven to produce results. You meet at 7 am at school and drive to the beach. You carry your own board on a beautiful walk (10-15 minutes) and then you wax and apply your sunscreen. Right after 8 am you start a ~20-minute stretch and another ~20-minute floor training. Around 9 am you leave for the first hour of surfing and then come back for brunch. You go again around 10:30 / 11:00 for another hour of surfing before heading back. When you arrive at school, you go to class to watch videos of your surfing and find out what you’re doing well and what needs improvement. The videos are extremely helpful as you really understand your mistakes as you can see whereas most other schools don’t offer this. You finish sometime between 1 pm and 2 pm depending on how many people are in the class. Commit to at least 4 days to really see the benefit. If you persist and commit, you can surf alone after about 10 lessons. Do not do more than 2 consecutive days as it is very tiring.

  4. An unforgettable trip!
    By Thomas M.
    from Brazil
    September 13, 2021
    I surfed a few times in my life, but my girlfriend had never surfed. We found this experience by chance and thought it would be interesting to incorporate a sporty and different (one-week) routine into the holidays. In the service, we were very polite and clearly indicated the route of classes, accommodation, schedules, etc. Afterward, we met the team of instructors and headed out to sea. Really, it is incomparable with other ‘surf schools’. An unforgettable trip, we will be back for sure!

  7. I caught a wave on the first day.
    By Priscila K.

    May 20, 2021
    I had never surfed before and the team was very attentive from the first contact. With the guidelines, I caught a wave on the first day. Video classes make it possible to see what needs to improve to evolve. The weather at sea is great, the instructors are very nice and the classes are super fun. I felt safe and encouraged to practice. I came back lighter! Thank you, family!

  8. Their methodology is incredible.
    By Rafael M.

    May 20, 2021
    The best surf school without a doubt. I had never picked up a board and in a few days, I was surfing alone. Their methodology is incredible. The experience goes beyond learning to surf, catching good waves, and taking good photos. It’s a time to have fun, make good friends and enjoy a paradise called Bahia. I recommend!

    I spent 2 weeks taking classes and they were great! The teachers are very competent, they help a lot and the video analysis is fundamental in the identification of errors and evolution in surfing. I plan to come back soon!
