Firstly, Pedro is a legend. An actual surfing legend but also an awesome, generous guy who really went out of his way to make sure we had a great time. My girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed the surf school, her being a first timer and myself with some surfing history. Carcavelos is a beginner wave and was perfect for learning... More

The waves were the perfect way to cure our heads. Those who wanted to take it easy splashed about in the shallows and... More

A colleague and I took a surf lesson at the Carcavelos Surf School after a work conference in Lisbon. The team were great fun and set us up with board, wetsuits and a lesson for a very reasonable price. The instruction was great and it was fun to practice our balancing skills on dry land before getting in the water.... More
