My girlfriend and I did a half day lesson with Griff (Jason) - the whole experience was really amazing. We instantly felt relaxed, and absolutely loved the beach... Neither of us had surfed for a very long time, so felt like total beginners but the lesson was the best I have had and Griff broke down the steps really well... More

Surfing, hanging on the beach in good company...it... More

Surfing was always something I was keen to try so when me and my friends booked a girls trip to Lisbon this was the first thing I looked for. I had never surfed before so didn't have very high expectations on how much I would be able to accomplish in 2 hours but Rui explained the technique really well and... More

We wanted to try surfing for one day, but it turned out to be so much fun so we surfed two more days. There are three instructors and they all are really cool. It was the first time we surfed but they gave us the techniques so that in the end we managed to stand up on the boards. They... More
