What you'll do

* We received the "CLEAN&SAFE" distinction from the Portuguese Tourism Institute, for the prevention of COVID19.*

I will pick you up from Lisbon city center and show you the beach with the best conditions for your level.
You will get a wetsuit and a surfboard, and we will get suited up for the activity.
From beginners to advanced, one day or intensive surf courses. I will help you all the way, showing and explaining everything you need to know. Learn surf techniques, beach analysis, safety procedures, and enjoy a clean energy activity, immersed in the ocean.
We will start with the warm up, and then go straight to theory on the sand, but it won't be long until you hit the water. I will not give a speech on the sand, just short and quick tips
If you are experienced in surfing, please let me know what type of board do you prefer, and what is your level, or else I will consider you a beginner.
We will surf around 2h, depending on the conditions and your stamina.
I remind you that this is a physical activity, and you must follow safety procedures
Afterwards we will drive back to the city, and finish where we started so you can have a well deserved rest.
Other things to note
I can pick you up anywhere from Sintra, Cascais to Lisbon, or a customized pick up for a different fee.

Where you'll be

We usually go to Costa da Caparica (20mn drive), just south of the River, across the "Golden Gate Bridge". Here we have 12km of pristine sandy beach, where we can find a more remote spot away from the crowds. When conditions are difficult we go in search of smaller waves in Carcavelos 25mn drive, where you can rub shoulders with the best in Portugal
Other spots include Guincho, Praia Grande (Sintra) and Ericeira, if you are more experienced.

Great and friendly instructors. Also very knowledgeable. I’ve never surfed and I was able to get up after a few tries! Location was amazing! The instructors were also very motivating which was really cool. Thank you!

For a total beginners I can really recommend. Although we were a large group the teachers looked out for everyone and helped people individually

Loved this surfing experience! My partner and I were brand new to surfing and were standing up and riding waves to the shore by the end. The wetsuits made the water an enjoyable temperature and the instructors took their time to help us with each wave for the first hour until we were comfortable. The beach had gorgeous views of Lisbon. Would recommend to any travelers!

We had an amazing time surfing. There were about nine people in our lesson, and three instructors which was a really nice ratio. They did a great job of helping us and teaching us how to surf, and they really cared about our success. Overall an excellent time, highly recommend!

Such an awesome experience. The surf instructors couldn’t have been more helpful and attentive. Beautiful location and nice to see an area outside of the main city. Great opportunity to meet some other people, also

I had a great time and highly recommend doing this experience in Lisbon! Make sure to eat breakfast and bring water with you because the salt water will make you thirsty!
