We were on holidays in Lisbon and we decided to surf the very next day. We called Rui the surf instructor and he explained that it was possible and told us what to expect. It was a brilliant experience. The surf location is beautiful and the wave are very good for beginners and intermediates. The surf instructor knows exactly what... More

Initially I signed up for a half-day session but I was enjoyed so much that I stayed for an additional day (instead of sightseeing). I called the instructor, he sent all the instructions by email and it was done. The day after we were already on the beach. Rui was cool but professional at the same time. The location is... More

If you are looking for a great surfing experience, go with this one. We (group of 5) booked a surfing class this fall. Pick up at our appartement which was very convenient. It's about a 20 min drive to the beach. All equipment is provided and was in good shape. Wetsuits are clean and in good shape as well. Rui... More

Myself and two friends had a brilliant day surfing with Rui in Lisbon. He started with the basics as it was the first time for all of us but we were soon in the water. Rui is a brilliant instructor and felt more like a friend while we were learning which added to the day. The great thing about the... More

I had read the reviews about Rui's Epic Surf School and it is the reason I booked with him. I can honestly say that everything I read was correct. Rui is an excellent instructor and the whole experience was great! Both myself and my brother had tried surfing before and did not have a good experience. We didn't think we... More

It would not be an exaggeration to say that our experience with Epic Surf School and Rui have been the best of our entire trip to Portugal! My daughter has always been inspired by movies on surfing and wanted to become a surfer "when she grew up". So my wife booked the surf lessons for a full day with Rui.... More
