"Epic" is the best name for this company! Myself and the two teenagers I was traveling with, all first time surfers had an absolute BLAST! Rui and his team were professional, fun, and an overall great time! I can't say "obrigada" enough for an EPIC day in Lisbon!

A group of us had a half day at the school, really well set up and organised and the coaching was spot on in terms of its pitch and pace. Will definitely go back as a great experience and much better than the cold North Sea to learn in!

I'm really glad I found this surf school. I booked a private lesson and two group lessons (two full days, one half day) and I am glad I did. The surf instructor, Jason, is an awesome guy, friendly, patient and profesional. Good explanations for beginners, step by step. If you didnt get it right, he takes time to explain and... More

Rui and Jason really made me feel comfortable. The beach is beautiful and I felt like I learned a lot about surfing. If you're in the Lisbon area, this is a must-do activity.

Imagine arriving to a spectacular, pristine beach area which no other tourists have discovered. Imagine your charming surf instructor getting you set up with wetsuits without any annoying repetitive type tourism routines. Now, imagine fast forwarding 90minutes, and knowing how to surf! This was a truly unforgettable experience, my favorite memory in all of Portugal, that should absolutely be added... More

We arrived in sunny Praia da Riviera, Costa Caparica in May 2016. The surfing instructors were professional: first, they wanted us to enjoy the memorable day by being positively encouraging. Secondly, the instructors demonstrated us exactly how to surf (safety). The surf base view was great and the Praia da Riviera beach fairly clean to walk without shoes. In addition,... More
