Surf Lesson on Praia de Carcavelos

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    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 lesson feel free to revitalize on shaded sun loungers before returning to the water.
