WHERE WE ARE

With a coast exposed in different directions, Lisbon offers an excellent consistency of Surf days, being possible to surf almost every day of the year.
Considering the conditions of the ocean and tides our classes are held on the following beaches:

Guincho Beach and Carcavelos Beach both part of Cascais Council.

Guincho is more exposed to the Atlantic Ocean and it´s a great place to learn normally in the summer months when swell is smaller. Carcavelos is our winter beach, as it´s more protected from the bigger swell´s and great to teach during winter months.

Meeting Points (Need to Book in advance):

Guincho  – Next to Hotel Fortaleza do Guincho  (Click for google pin)                 Carcavelos – Next to Casa da Praia Bar (Click for google pin)

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What do I need to bring to my Surf lesson?
All the equipment needed during lessons is provided, including wetsuits, leashes and soft top surfboards. All you need to bring is sunscreen, beachwear, a beach towel, a bottle of water, and a smile!
2. Can I choose the lesson schedule?
In order to provide the best and safest conditions for our students, the school organizes the lessons according to sea, wind and tide conditions. Therefore, this might change every day and we can only predict the conditions and inform you a few days in advance, when we can clearly check the forecast.
3. Where are the surf lessons? Where is the meeting point?
Depending on the day, our school offers lessons on the two best spots to surf in Cascais, both Carcavelos or Guincho beaches. Both are sandy beaches with great conditions to learn how to surf. The two spots work with different conditions so we can choose according to daily-changing conditions.
Our meeting points might be:
• Carcavelos, by Casa da Praia bar (Click here for Google maps pin)
• Guincho, near Hotel Fortaleza (Click here for Google maps pin)
For lessons including transfer, our meeting point is at Cascais train station, next to Roots café.
4. How can I book my lesson? When is my booking considered valid?
In order to book your lesson, you can either use our website booking system or directly pay your lesson, lessons package or combined deposit by bank transfer.

So that we can organize ourselves with our instructors, we only consider lessons directly booked on our website and all other reservations after full-payment.
After booking our team will contact you to organize the schedule and meeting point!

5. Do you teach students with different surf levels? What level should I go to/choose?
We have 2 learning levels: beginners and intermediates.
Beginner lessons are for those who are going to try for the very first time, have not surfed for a long time, or for those who have already surfed a few times but still need to learn technical aspects to take it to the next step. Intermediate lessons are for those who are already comfortable in the ocean, subject to different conditions, and know how to catch a green wave without the instructor´s help. These are classes in which you learn more advanced techniques, such as positioning yourself in the waves, how to make more difficult drops, body movements, among others.
6. In which languages are your lessons held?
Our lessons are given both in English or Portuguese. We do, however, have instructors who are able to speak other languages, such as French, Spanish or Italian, from a provider´s perspective. Our lessons are given in a very visual way, with loads of demonstrations to make it all easier for non-native English speakers.
7. Do I need to book in advance?
We highly advise you to book your lessons in advance, especially during high season, when we are often full booked. Even during low season, in order to guarantee your class, it is advisable to book a few days in advance.
