Thanks to these guys, surfing is now my new favourite thing. It was my first experience and I absolutely loved it, the instructors made lessons as useful as enjoyable and fun. Carcavelos is a perfect spot for beginners, there are lots of surf schools along the shore but I highly recommend this one. The location and price/quality ratio are excellent.... More

I found Carcavelos Surf School had the best offer when I was researching places to try surfing and I was not disappointed!! I was travelling with my mom, who did not want to surf, and Pedro organized a day that was excellent for both... More

Surfing we did for the 1st time and we were very glad that we have chosen Carcavelos surf school: - good location: 20 min by train to Lisbon. May turn to minus in weekends since too much people may come. - good equipment: suits and surfs of different... More

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

I cannot say how good this is as a stag activity, it is AWESOME. Pedro who runs the school picked us (12 lads) up from our hostel in central Lisbon and drove us out to the beach. 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

This surf school was one of the best things that happen to me since I came in Portugal! I found here beautifull people that impresed me with their patience, the way that they talk with you and how they make something that it's complicated in your head(especially in the first classes where you feel lost between the waves), and they...
