There were two of us and we were complete beginners. We have never stood on a surfboard or anything like that. I went into the 2 surf lessons with the expectation that I would just learn to somehow get from the water to the board. We would not have thought that we actually stood on the board several times. We owe this to our surf instructor Bruno, probably an old hand on the waves, who basically threw us "into the deep end" without us being afraid. He gave us a great introduction, a secure feeling, valuable tips and had strong nerves that he needed with us. It was sooooo much fun that I can't write it down in words here. A must do when you are near the beautiful Praias Carcavelos. The organization also went really well. After our 2 hours we could see that a children's holiday group was being looked after over several hours with surfing, games and fun. This organizer is just great.

You get a basic teaching and then you go straight into the water. The "surfing" (I couldn't really manage it) was a lot of fun and when you manage to stand on the board, it's a huge sense of achievement. Definitely to be recommended and a very good price for the two hours!

absolute highlight! Easily accessible by train from Lisbon (Cais do Sodre), this excursion is well worth it. The coaches are friendly and funny - pedro is outstanding here. Be patient and you will be on the board within a few minutes, even without prior knowledge. It was a lot of fun. Beware - surfing is physically much more strenuous than you might think. For us as beginners, two hours were absolutely sufficient for a wonderful sore muscles the next day;) Make sure you also think about the sunscreen! THANKS to pedro and the others for a great day!
