Enjoy the best of Lisbon with us!

"Surf, culture, food, and history are what Lisbon can give you. Come have a great time with us while learning or improving your surfing skills and still getting to see all the wonders Portugal has to offer."

The surf

Peak swell
Variable swell

Surfing in Europe is one of a kind experience! There's nothing quite like mixing great waves with rich history and culture. The surf in Lisbon is great because of the variety. Within an hour's drive, there are all kinds of world-class beaches, reefs, and point breaks.

Summer is the time of year for all types of surfers. Enjoy fun waves in the sunshine of vibrant Lisbon. We run surf camp lessons daily as well as trips to better waves if the swell is up.

Fall is still great for beginners, but also you'll see world-class surf start to become more consistent. If you're looking for great waves and perfect weather, fall in Lisbon is the place to be.

Winter and Spring (Nov- April) have colder weather and generally bigger waves, but there are always nooks and crannies around Lisbon to find a well-protected wave for any ability.

The lodge

Our ocean-front beach house has three floors with high ceilings, large windows (thermic and acoustic protection) with an amazing ocean view, and large private or shared rooms. It also has a big garden where you can store your boards, wash and dry your wetsuits, relax and take a nap or even organize a barbecue with the other guests and friends.

The house can accommodate up to 18 people in 4 beautiful private rooms and two shared rooms, all of them sharing three spacious bathrooms. With its high ceilings and thick walls, this Surf House is very fresh during the summer. It also has a fireplace and central heating for the cold winter days.

Our experienced team will take you to the best surf breaks around Lisbon. During the evenings, you will also have the chance to discover a cosmopolitan city with fantastic architecture, a unique cultural history, great restaurants, and amazing nightlife.

Surf School

Whether you want to learn how to surf or improve your surfing skills, Lisbon is one of the best places in the world to do it! It doesn't matter your age, gender, or fitness level, our professional team will welcome you to the beach.

We have waves for every level all year round since the water temperature is always the same and allows you to go surfing 365 days per year.

All of our lessons have a two-hour duration with a genuine local and certified instructor. Surfboard, wetsuit, and insurance are all included. From a first-timer to a more experienced person, the ratio never surpasses 5 people per 1 instructor. We divide the groups according to the guest's level (first time, beginner, intermediate, or advanced).

Anyone and everyone can enjoy a great beach and surfing day in Lisbon. Come and join us!
