Santa Barbara Surf School was born in 2015 from the will of two surfers that wanted to provide the opportunity to give everyone the experience of surfing in the Azores. Feeling the breeze on your face while gliding over the waves. The perfect harmony between man and pure nature.
In Santa Barbara surf school we offer surf lessons, bodyboard lessons, stand up paddle lessons, surf guide services and/or we hire all the equipment necessary for the practice of surf, bodyboard, stand up paddle and dive. We also have partnerships with local lodges.
