I had 3 sessions at the Epic Surf School. It was my first time of surfing or trying to do it;) I was mostly taught by Jason who is really a professional teacher! He payed a lot of attention to correct my mistakes and improve my skills further and was so encouraging. I participated to a group sessions but he... More

It really was a great day. We have been picked up in the morning in front of our hotel and spend the entire day at the beautiful "Caparica Beach". Rui is a great teachter! Very patient, friendly and professional. The beach was not crowded at all and it was really fun to (try to) ride some waves. We also had... More

I can't recommend Epic surf school enough. Rui is professional, flexible, very friendly, welcoming and - maybe most importantly - a superb surf instructor. The other instructors on the Epic team (we were taught by Jason and Manel) were excellent too, giving great advice and plenty of personal attention. The location on Caparica beach is great with a changing room,... More

If you are visiting the Lisbon area, I ABSOLUTELY recommend that you take surf lessons here. The staff is incredible. They are friendly and fun, and Jason is a wonderful teacher. Learning to surf with Epic Surf School was one of our best days in Lisbon, and probably one of the best days ever. If you're seeking a fun, memorable... More

Having 6 days to spend in Lisbon, I spent two full days with the Epic Surf School. Being able to get to a lovely beach in about 20/30 mins from Lisbon town was great. Even before arriving to Portugal, I got in touch with Rui to book myself a class. He was very helpful to place me in the right... More

Good information by email, info by phone when needed. Timely pickup and a complete day without worries. Rui and Jason are an oiled machine together that work all day to make sure each person in the group has a great day and gets the attention they deserve. They really stick to a nice ratio of surfers to teachers. Result: you... More

A magnificent day in Portugal. Me and my friend had never been surfing before, but we go hooked big time! We got picked up by Jason and Rui in central Lissbon and they brought us to this place beyond the 25 de Abril Bridge (the golden gate look alike). When we arrive at a dusty parking lot I didn't know... More
