About Surf Academia Joao Macedo
Surf Academia Joao Macedo is based in Praia Grande, Sintra, although we also teach in the most beautiful beaches around Lisbon coast, which includes Guincho, Carcavelos, Ericeira and Costa da Caparica.

Having 2 surf lessons a day for seven days in a row I really noticed large improvements in my surfing thanks to all the instructors that helped me take (more) waves and gave me comments on how to improve, but also tell you when you are doing good 😊 . This all in a relaxed, safe and encouraging environment. I would defenitely recommend people to take lessons with this surf school and I am coming back for some more surf in the future for sure!!
