An awesome sport teach by really cool teachers!

The two surf lessons were amazing! This surfschool is really flexible and kind. The teachers are patient and cool. At first they show you the technique so you can practice almost the two hours for practicing. So for beginners this is very nice explained, you feel helped and appreciate. Surfing is such a nice sport even you can’t stand on your board, this was my feeling while surfing!

I loved very much this experience!!! I have never surfed before! it has been my first time, so I was a little bit nervous...but the teachers were all very prepared and easy going, I felt at my ease with them. They have been clear in their explanation on how to stand on the board. Very nice, patient, smiling and pleasant people!! I recommend this experience! I have a great memory of it!If I'm going back to Lisbon, and I want to surf, I'll go back at Carcavelos surf school!

I took this course during my holidays. The lessons were exceptional. Our instructors were experts, motivating and they were fully addressing our needs. Moreover the waves in the beach of Carcavelos are very good for beginners. I had lots of fun taking this course and I would gladly repeat it, when possible. It is a very good course and I can only recommend it to anyone who would like to start surfing!
