We will make sure that you will have a day as a real surfer! We will share with you our life style and all our knowledge about surf. We grew up surfing the waves of Portugal so don´t worry because you will catch the best waves of the day! We will pick you up in Lisbon (in front of Hard Rock Cafe) in the morning and i will take you to where are the best conditions for your level (Costa da Caparica or Carcavelos). When we arrive to the beach we will choose the best equipment for you and you will have a 2 hours surf lesson . First of all we will warm up together and after that i will give you some theory (proper for your level) explaining everything that you need to stand up on the surfboard or to do some turns on the waves. When you feel ready we will go to the water to catch some real waves. After you catch the best waves nothing better to have a good meal and i will recommend you some good restaurants to eat some fresh fish or a good Açai bowl. After lunch you will have time to extend the towel on the beach and enjoy the sun. In the end of the day at 17h30 i will take you back to Lisbon.
