Definitely the highlight of our trip in Lisbon! Jason and Rui were so helpful and accommodating. We didn't have any past experience, and they were so energetic and great at teaching us exactly how to stand up. As the day progressed, it got nicer and warmer out, we sat at the restaurant and hung out at the beach after our... More

It was my first surf lesson! Rui is patient and clear in explanations, available (he took us at home and bring us back) and really he takes care about you during the training, having always a look on the "safety" issue. The training was divided in 2 parts: the first (theorical) on the beach, and the second (pratical) in the... More

From the moment Rui picked us up, we knew instantly it was going to be an awesome time. He was extremely energetic and sincere. We went to a peaceful beach and he was so patient with us as we got ready to take down some massive waves. He made sure we were safe and cheered us on as we got... More

The surfing lesson was a Christmas gift and I didn't think of any chance of bad weather or rain back then. We were not the luckiest with the weather and after arriving at the beach I only saw high waves and felt the strong wind. Rui checked the weather and said it was OK to go and surf today. We... More

We were actually there in August 2013. It was just a perfect day with very nice instructor. It was our first time surfing and we were there with another couple who we didn't know before (so 4 people in total). Our instructor was explaining everything in detail so that it was possible to follow even as an absolute beginner. However,... More

Rui is the best instructor ever!!! A good example of "time goes by so fast when you are having fun!" If you are no experience of surfing, dont worry! You will have fun for sure! (As I did ;)) Also, you can get to see little bit outside of Lisbon by driving down the bridge. You will see the "amazing"... More

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

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..
