My husband and I are first time surfers and we signed up while on our vacation. Rui was awesome! Prompt, fast replies and he arranged to pick us up nearby to transport us to the beach. He even called ahead on the day of to make sure the waves were good. We spent a few hours first practicing getting on... 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

No doubt I'm going to visit Rui again the next time I come by Lisbon. Super helpfull teacher who would not just take you out surfing as planned but also check ahead if the conditions for waves actually are there or not. If not he is flexible to find other days/another solution. Great teacher (had me up surfing after 1... More

Rui was an excellent coach, giving us individual attention, correcting our moves. We were able to stand on the board within an hour of the lesson! Very affordable price and If I'm ever back in Lisbon, Epic Surf School is where I'll come back for sure.

We had a great time with Rui. We had zero expercience but none the less learned a lot and our teenage kids even caught a few waves standing, which is not easy without any experience. Rui was patient with us, showed up on time and made sure we felt comfortable. Because of the weather we had to shorten the surf... More

All these previous positive reviews had set expectations pretty high. And expectations were met, we had a great day with our family. Rui is a great, positive guy and instructed my wife, me and a nice other couple. He had arranged a 2nd instructor Diogo for our 3 girls, who had a fantastic time. Both Rui and Diogo were great...
