Surf Lesson on Praia de Carcavelos
USD 29.30

Master the basic techniques of surfing during a 2-hour surf lesson on Praia de Cacavelos in Lisbon. After receiving a safety orientation from your instructor, you’ll don your wetsuit and learn techniques integral to surfing. Practice pushing yourself off the board and find your balance on the beach before you take to the water alongside your accredited instructor. During this small-group lesson — limited to 15 participants — you’ll receive personalized attention from your instructor.

What to Expect

After greeting your instructor at the Carcavelos Surf School on Praia de Cacavelos, you’ll receive a modern surfboard and wetsuit. Listen to a short safety briefing and then plunge into learning the basic techniques of surfing.

On the sand, you’ll master pushing yourself up off of your board and will perfect your surfing stance. Throughout the lesson, feel free to ask your Portuguese Surfing Federation-accredited instructor for helpful tips.

Then, once you feel confident, take to the water and attempt to ride the waves of the Atlantic Ocean. Throughout your 2-hour lesson, feel free to revitalize on shaded sun loungers before returning to the water.
