From booking online with them, to the day and after their service has been exceptional. Picked us up at the time given from the hotel (7 lads!). Was a great day, very friendly, relaxed, professional staff and in April, when it was 27 deg sunshine it was just perfect. Would do this again in a heart beat!

We had a great day at Epic Surf School. Rui was a great teacher! It was a fantastic way to do something active and relaxing at the same time during our citytrip. I hadn't surfed before, but now I'm definitely going more often! The lesson was very good and the food and talking afterwards were really nice as well!

My expectations were high for this surf trip - but the experience far exceeded the expectations! If you are going to Lisbon - this is the place to surf. If you didn't plan to surf on you trip - do it anyway! Compared to other surf schools, I've been to, the teaching here was very professional, structured and it was... More

We had an amazing day at the beach. 'Surf lesson is an understatement'. A great way to start surfing plus hanging out at the beach together. Awesome guys! You're crazy if you don't go here...

My 3 friends and I recently spent a day at Epic Surf school opting for the included transportation (which was only 5 euro and picked us up right at our hostel). Rui was incredibly friendly and got us fitted with our wetsuits and surfboards once we arrived. After a short warmup, and on land lessons he let us get right... More

We had 3 perfect surfing days, lots of fun and the instructors Rui and Jason are top class. They are here to make you progress taking your time and enjoying the ocean and the beach as well. A really great location to surf and a nice restaurant to recover next to the surf school. We will definitely go back !!!

My partner and I booked the lesson a few days before not knowing what to expect but this was definitely the highlight of our trip! Jason our instructor was incredibly friendly, encouraging, and patient with us beginners. We couldn't have asked for a better instructor. The beach was beautiful (white sand and completely empty when we arrived) and the little... More

Rui is a great instructor. He takes his time to make sure everyone is warmed up and stretched, is happy to switch languages to make sure everyone can follow, and gives you individually tailored advice to help you become a better surfer. The beach he uses is beautiful, with some great food available. We really enjoyed ourselves. Highly recommended!

Rui is a fantastic instructor, both patient and enthusiastic, which is particularly important for beginners. The location is great; very easy to get to from Lisbon and transport to and from the beach was very well organised. Overall a fantastic experience, would recommend to anyone.
