Epic Surf School is directly located at a beautiful, wide beach. We were there two days, each of them was wonderful. It is a perfect location to start with and improve your surf skills. The whole school team is very friendly, openminded and helpful. All stuff is up to date, everything is properly clean. We had Rui as teacher and... More

We got picked up from a suitable location in the city and taken to the perfect surf spotup the coast. Lovely staff, Peter was very knowledgable and a very good teacher! Had us both standing and enjoying the day within a short time. Located next to restaurants with GREAT Portugues seafood too. I really recommend these guys!! Enjoy!

Don't hesitate, just book your lesson with Epic! Seriously, it was the BEST day. They picked us up at our hotel, the lesson was awesome and fun, and beers on the beach afterward topped off a wonderful introduction to surfing. It was PERFECTION. I'm so happy we met Rui, Guy, and everyone at ESS. We have truly epic memories!

Epic surf school is actually very well-named. We were 9 coworkers on a week-end, for most of us it was our first surfing experience. All i can say is that Rui is very nice, very accomodating for the meeting. Our two teachers, jason and diogo were attentive, telling us just few advices not to confuse us, but very clear and...

My friend and I visited Lisbon for a weekend and coming in, we knew we had to go surfing. After doing some research, we decided Epic Surf school would be the best option. And we could not have been more right. He picked us up at the hotel, and made the quick 45 minute commute to Costa da Caparica, one... More

The staff picked us up in Lisbon, near a metro station. They teach us how to catch a wave and we got fun since the first wave we took! The teachers were very able to help us understanding the ocean and how the board moves. One of the best experiences I ever made.

I moved to Lisbon one year ago and I started taking surf lessons. I have tested quite a few schools in the area of Lisbon (e.g. praia do Guincho, Caparica), so I can warmly recommend Epic surf school as the best one around. Firstly, because their equipment (wetsuits, board) is in very good condition, but mostly thanks to the instructors.... More
