The Good Feeling Surf School
We are the Good Feeling Surf School, a surf school located in the wonderful Algarve! Algarve beaches are beautiful with so many wonderful surf spots that change daily. Thanks to our expert local knowledge, we’ll always take you to the beach with the best waves of the day. We start from Raposeira – the perfect central location in the corner of southwest Portugal – and from there we can quickly go towards the west coast, Sagres, or south coast.
“The best surfer out there is the one having the most fun.”
Because we do everything – surfing, living, learning – with a Good Feeling! Indeed, we learn best, when we’re relaxed and are having fun. So once, you’re happy and confident in the waves, everything will flow easier for you.
Our surf lessons are held in small groups with qualified instructors. We’ve only got the best and friendliest teachers, with years of experience under their belt and who know how to help you to learn surfing with a smile!

Thanks to Pedro and Luke for a great day surfing. Highly recommend the Good Feeling. Pedro gave loads of personal attention to Kevin (6) who was up on his feet in no time. Superb day! Thanks!

Lovely, perfectly located Hostel
Fantastic hostel. Amazing kitchen - best of any hostel I've stayed in. A really lovely hostel and perfectly located for hitting both west and south coast surf spots in the winter.

The name says it all. Fabulous environment. Lots of amenities and space to chill. Big kitchen. Clean and comfortable. A bit out of town so a car is useful otherwise they have a shuttle that goes to the beach daily. I’d recommend.

It sure was a good feeling!
This is a really nice hostel that lives up to its name. It was off season with not many around but the staff made all the difference! They also helped me experience some of real Portugal in the locality. I would highly recommend a stay here. It was also very clean with great facilities and a kitchen that made you want to cook. The added bonus was that the surf was pumping when I arrived.

Such a lovely place
The best place to go if you are going to surfing. Good access to all the beaches and they even give you a lift to the good surfing spots. The staff are the best and it has a really good vibe! Definitely coming back one day.

And I had so much fun surfing and getting the right information and the options were awesome. I'm definitely coming back!

A great place
I spent more than a week there and had a great stay. The owners are super friendly and I had a lot of fun with the guys working there. A great plus is the daily transfer to one of the beaches and they choose the right ones for the skill level depending on the swell.

Don’t miss Carlos’ Dinner
Wir hatten ein Studiozimmer mit eigenem sauberen Bad. Das Zimmer hat eine tolle Ausstattung, mit eigenem kleinen Kühlschrank und Terrasse mit Hängematten. Jeden Abend hat man die Möglichkeit an einem gemeinsamen Abendessen.

Just an overall Good Feeling
Das GoodFeeling Hostel macht seinem Namen wirklich alle Ehre. Normalerweise schreibe ich eigentlich keine Bewertungen, weil ich da i.d.R. echt zu faul für bin, aber hier wars echt der Hammer.
