Rui did a fantastic job of reviewing surfing basics and helping our group of 6 people all ride waves, a number of us for the first time ever. We were always safe in the water, and the beach was beautiful. The package was very well priced and well worth the time to visit from Lisbon.

I booked a private lesson for my eight year old son and wife with Rui. It was one of the highlights of our trip to Lisbon. Rui was a fantastic and patient teacher to both, but the highlight was Rui's connection to my son. Rui spent extra time with him and was able to get him up on the board... More

Rui is a fantastic guide going through not just a lesson but taking the time to understand your level and prepping you with a good routine pre-surf. In addition I'd like to add that Rui's recommendations for surf beaches the rest of our trip down the coast south of lisbon really helped us find more great waves. Check out the... More

My family and I (group of six) took a lesson with Rui and Miguel this past week. We found the warm up, instruction and practical assistance to be top notch. The beach was stunning and all equipment was provided, clean, and fit well. The water was fairly calm that day but didn't stop us from catching some great waves and... More

I made this booking for my fiancé's birthday. He enjoyed it very much! We had a few friends with us and Rui made sure to accommodate them even at the last minute with rentals and pick up. Rui was very professional and patient. The food and drinks at the restaurant are amazing once you are done surfing. Try the sardines... More
