I had the PERFECT DAY really. They came pick me up at 9:30 am at my hotel, they were super welcoming and happy to have me. A short ride only like 20 minutes from Lisboa center we arrived on a dreamy beach, at a dreamy little surf spot, had a very comfortable little restaurant behind which they have all you... More

We had a perfect surf session with Epic Surf School. Rui is a really good teacher and he organised everything in a perfect way (pick-up and drop at our flat)and he managed the different levels of the people composing our group. The wave were perfect and we enjoyed our session I recommand Epic Surf School

This is the best surf school you are going to find anywhere. Rui is the nicest guy and a great teacher, and did everything he could to help us enjoy ourselves. The beach we went to was great, wide, soft sand and decent waves, the water was practically bath like (even in April) and all the equipment was top notch,... More

My husband and I had first lesson here on his birthday and it was phenomenal! Rui Pedro picked up us on time at the meeting point and we head towards the seaside. Jason was our instructor and he was so nice and patient and made it so easy to be excited the whole lesson. In two hours we have learnt... More

First time surfing and the guys had me standing up in no time. Instruction was great and you get so much 1 on 1 with the instructors. Rui and Jason were super chill, grabbed some drinks after the session and they make you feel so relaxed and confident in the water. 100% would recommend and would surf again

We booked our trip from home, and these guys did great. They picked us up at our appartment and showed as a beautiful beach. The coach was great and showed us how to surf. We booked this course as a family and we did great. They showed us the beach-lifestyle and we had wonderful hours. If you go to Lisboa... More

As part of a stag weekend 17 of us went out with Rui for a surf lesson. The location is excellent with a wide beach and good bar / restaurant. The kit good and the instructors great. Highly recommend.

Surfing today with Rui and Jason was one of the most incredible experiences I've had in Europe! The system they have is phenomenal. Rui picked four of us up at 9:30 at the door of our apartment, which was extremely convenient since we've never been to Portugal before and don't know our way around very well. Rui was nice enough...
