From the moment I received my first email from Rui to the beer post surf session, I had a blast! I found out 2 weeks before traveling that I would have the fortune to travel to Lisbon for business and I knew I needed to stay longer to go surfing. Epic surf school got good reviews online and I liked... More

Our group was from Canada and the UK, and some of us had never surfed before. Our surf teacher, Jason, was patient, easy-going, highly skilled and an all-round amazing instructor. Also, Rui made sure everything was organized well and that we all felt comfortable. We had an amazing day on the waves and we all got up at least a... More

Rui and Guy are both extremely nice and super easy going. The spot they took us to is wonderful. Not too crowded, the waves were perfect, and there is a nice little beach restaurant where you can get a coffee before the session. Rui picked us up at our hotel, it was super convenient, and we really enjoyed his company... More

On a stag weekend (beginning of March, 19°C, still a perfect day on the beach in the sun) we went with 10 people, 7 of us wanted to surf (half day, mostly beginners) and 3 wanted to just hang out at the restaurant. The transport, instructor and the surf was excellent. Although other schools would have been slightly cheeper, Rui... More

Loved it! The time and date first got cancelled and postponed for another day, because the waves were too strong for me as a beginner, which I really do appreciate looking back at it. Otherwise, I would just get slapped around by the ocean. I had 1-2-1 session, the beach was almost empty and I had all Pedro's skills and... More

Epic surf school really does live up to its name – they have everything going for them. The spot is wonderful, the station is really nice and well-equipped and, most importantly, the staff is awesome. Everyone there is friendly and helpful. Our teacher, Rui, was super encouraging, patient and all around did an amazing job explaining, giving tips and helping... More

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...
