Thank you João & all the Surfcastle crew for such a memorable week. We loved the Castle, the people, the waves, the BBQ, the studio, the staff, the surf teachers... we simply loved everything at Surfcastle. From now on, Baleal-Peniche and Montgat - Barcelona are twinned through our memory.

Without any doubt, one of the hardest places to leave. Thanks for an amazing week. We will be back and thanks to the most epic humans Janine & Martyn for bringing us there. Love from Becky and James.

Thanks for an extremely nice stay! The surfcastle staff is lovely, embrassing and filled with the relaxed attitude of surfing and holiday vibes. We already feel at home and being part of the family. Good hopes and fortune in the future to all, and everyone that makes the Surfcastle the perfect place!

The only good thing about leaving this little paradise is that we know that we will be back at some point. Many thanks to everyone at the Surfcastle.

What a wonderful week we've had in this special place! Its truly delightful to meet such great people from all around the world who share the same passion for surfing, good food and relaxing in a great environment. Thanks to João, Pedro and the crew at Surfcastle for making our stay such a memorable one. The special little excursion from Pedro's beach to get on the outside was a real treat ! The welcome BBQ which happened appropriately on day 5 was such a lovely night - excellent BBQ fish & sardines and of course the excellent surf lessons and varieties of conditions made it a surf camp I'd definitely recommend to friends and come back too!!! Thanks again for a fabulous surfing week holiday in Portugal!
To the Surfcastle crew !
Thanks for an amazing surf, hospitality, friendship, vibe, cheers, dinners, adventures and all around unreal surf trip !
All the best,
Jamie, Brad, Mike & Pete !
Hey Surfcastle ! We had an amazing time in this great place, you know what ! We had the best honeymoon a couple can have...
And most probably that is because of you guys. We will miss every day we had over here... now that we are leaving, we are kind of down... after one week I made my first take off... and now its time to go... that´s not fair ! But hey, at least I didn´t do that bodyboard and didn´t become the pussy guy. So I think that is all for now guys... hope to come back in a soon time ! Keep this place like this forever. Not a hotel but like a home ! This is so unique :)
Come to Istambul / Turkey to our humble castle and we will get wasted in the nights of Istambul !
Lots of love,
Alper & Serra.
Dear João & the surfcastle crew,
What a treat ! We've seen a lot of cool stuff over the last 14 months driving up from South Africa, but your awesome house powered by the passion of surfing has to be some of the coolest.
Like the retro Ford Transit parked outside, may you keep running strong for a long time to come ! A real honor to include the Surfcastle as one of the places to stay on our AfricanSurfer project, thanks a lot !

You can be sure that you will see me again some time soon and I will bring a few of Irish whiskey bottles with me ! It was great to have met such good people and will always think about you and most definitely recommend the surfcastle to everybody !
The crew at Surfcastle !
So word of mouth had it that this was the place to be for surf hungry saffars that have driven up the continent of Africa... you guys were amazing !
Thanks so much for the few great days and the amazing vibe...
We will definitely be seeing more of you soon !
