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.

The meeting point in Lisbon is always the same, next to Time Out Market

Where we'll meet

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.

    My brother and I were a little nervous since we had never surfed before, but Filipe did such an amazing job teaching us the technique and then helping us correct our form. He is very chill and a great teacher!

    This was a really nice experience and we enjoyed it a lot. Instructor was great and the equipment and wetsuits were good. I would have given five stars, except for a couple of issues: The info said there would be 1 instructor for 4 students, but we were 6 with only one instructor. Also at times the surfers were too close to each other and there was a risk of accidents, even though nothing happened. In any case, highly recommended.

    Teaching how to surf is no easy feat - taking students out in the water, pushing us into the waves, keeping an eye on all of us for a couple of hours, driving us back and forth. I see Filipe's effort and I really appreciate that! Thanks for being a great instructor. I am excited to go surfing again.

    We had a great time. It was our first time surfing and I feel we learned a lot. It was fun and the instructor was very helpful. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to do a fun activity in Lisbon.
