I took approximately 10 lessons and it was awesome. They have all equipment needed, suitable for all levels, and I got the opportunity to take lessons on another beautiful surfspot further away from their main spot in Carcavelos. All the instructors prioritize your safety and learning process making and you feel comfortable and safe no matter how big the waves.... More

More importantly though, the team takes surfing very seriousely introducing you to the local conditions, right technique and check your progress whilst you are in the water.

We can highly recommend Carcavelos Surf School. Pedro picked us up at our hotel and gave us a 2 hour lesson. He is a fantastic teacher and we all (all beginners) manage to surf during our lesson. The beach was perfect with a fantastic restaurant that served grilled fish and clams for lunch. All and all a fantastic day.
