We were the first group of girls he has taken surfing in December and it was amazing! We had the waves to ourselves and Rui was so kind and such a great teacher! I... More

Recently charged with the responsibility of organizing a bachelor weekend away in Lisbon for 14, I thought a morning surf could be the perfect activity that would combine fun with a good way to get people out of bed and over their long nights drinking. I had initially called around many of the schools that come up on a google... More

I actually went back and had a group lesson, I was a bit hesitant being in a group of 5 of us but Rui gave us all individual attention and let us stay in the water for such a long time as the conditions were really good. When he is teaching surfing he is really in his element, very passionate... More

Long weekend away with friends end of oktober / beginning of november, including 2 days lessons @ Epic Surf School. Great atmosphere, good teaching, nice waves and a more than perfect way to learn how to surf. Highly recommended. Will definitely go back next year..

It was such a gorgeous day and he was so relaxed that we had time for a volleyball match. The surf lesson was brilliant and in the water, Rui and... More

I found Epic Surf on the Activities section of Trip Advisor. I was automatically smittened by the great photos and great reviews. And I went for it. I must say I am not the strongest swimmer, and my first reaction is to stay away from high waves, but I felt safe all the way. Pedro is very very experienced and... More

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
