“Great instructor indeed”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

Rui is a great instructor. He explains you the minor details of why to do and what to do. Very patient and cool. If you are visiting other places after Lisbon , I would recommend to book this on your first day of stay , so that you can give yourself some time to rest before your travel again.

Go for it if you want to experience this wonderful sport.

It was truly great - Rui is a very nice and good teacher. He also took a lot of nice photos which were sent to us free of charge. I can highly recommend it to beginners :)

“Awesome autumn surf”
Reviewed October 19, 2013 via mobile

My friend and I took a lesson wuth Rui we had a beautiful day and he found us the perfect quiet beach to learn on. As no one else booked we pretty much had a private lesson wnd he helped us individually the whole time. I stood up a couple of times and learned a lot about steering the board. Definitely recommend.

“Absolutely Smashing!”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

My friends and I had a blast. This was our first time surfing but the location, coach and weather made for an extremely enjoyable experience. This has definitely been a gateway surf and I will continue to surf when I return home. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who visits Lisbon and is keen for a wee adventure!

“What a perfect day!”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

We arranged a pickup at our hotel. We picked a beach with nice waves and started the course!
Rui is a very good teacher and nice person (Speaks very good English). We were beginners so he told us step by step how to catch the waves. After some exercises and warmup on the beach we went in the water. We had so much fun. After the lunch at noon we went in again and everybody managed to stay on the board. GREAT DAY!
We hope to come back next year and again do a surfing day with Rui.
