This is a must do activity in Lisbon! We are surfing beginners (that may even be generous) but my husband and I had the best time! Nuno was a fantastic instructor, very patient and encouraging, but also was very observant in making sure that everybody was having fun and being safe. The transportation to and from Lisbon Zoo was also such a plus. From initially booking all the way until the activity everything was so well planned, Filipe checked in with us for the size of our wetsuits and let us know about a slight adjustment in our start time in order to make sure we had good waves. This is a can’t miss activity and probably our favourite day in Lisbon!

Filipe was very professional and helpful. Very knowledgable and full of general information too ! Good equipment and level of tuition very good. Highly recommend. Pity about the wind but unfortunately no control over it ,

Great orginisation, very nice instuctor with a great way of teaching. We would definitely take this course again. Really enjoyed our morning surfing! Would recommend this to others!

The trainer was such a nice person, explained everything very well and the whole experience felt exciting but very safe. I would definitely do this again. Thank you, Nuno!
