Also, if you already know to surf, they have other lessons for all kind of level.

We have never surfed before but In Lisboa we decided to try it. Rui was a really good teacher, he told us all the necessary information how to slide on the board. Thanks to his advice I was able to stand up on the board for a couple of seconds at the end of the first session. He also made some photos of us surfing in the waves. Moreover between the two sessions we had a really nice lunch. I recommend to try it if you are in Lisboa!

I arranged a group half day (2 hour) surf lesson for 9 of us on my brother’s stag do. Rui was very helpful and quick to respond to emails when arranging the lessons.

Rui picked us up from the hotel and drove us to Costa da Caparica beach for the lessons. An amazing beach! And the surf was great too. All of us had a fantastic time and Rui is a very patient and enthusiastic instructor and a great guy too. I’d thoroughly recommend him!

Thanks again Rui.

Rui Pedro Silva is an amazing surf instructor, clearly passionate about what he does. It brings him so much joy to see someone make progress, and share his enthusiasm for the waves.
Whether you are a beginner or not, Rui Pedro perfectly adapts his teaching style in order to give you the best surfing experience possible. He is thorough, patient, and an all around wonderful person. Learning how to surf for the first time with him in Portugal was definitely one of the highlights of my visit to this beautiful country!
