I came back after 3 years to try surfing again and things were the same, perfect. Great beach, great waves, and great instructors. Rui and Benny made sure everyone with different levels of experience had fun. Cannot recommend them more.

I'd highly recommend for a big group who don't know Lisbon that well as they were seamless in getting us there and back with plenty of time for lunch and sun bathing. 5 star service.
