My girlfriend and I went surfing with Go Surf Lisboa in mid-September and had a great time.
We met the guides and rest of our group in central Lisbon and piled in the van around 9am. After about a 30 minute drive we were on the beaches of Costa da Caparica. Our instructors Filipe and Manu were very attentive, knowledgeable, and encouraging.
Our group of 7 were split into first-timers (3), and those with a bit more experience (4), with one instructor per group.
Although I'm terrible at surfing, I love the physical demands (and even dangers) of it. After a half day or more of fighting the ocean, you are totally exhausted. We had originally booked a full day, morning and afternoon sessions, but my girlfriend was feeling a bit beaten up after the morning session. This will happen if it's your first time. Filipe and Manu were very flexible and had no problem with us cancelling the afternoon session.
I agree with other reviews, that this is perhaps the best value I've paid for surf lessons. 35 euro per person is very reasonable considering pick-up in Lisbon, transport, equipment, and instruction.
Thank you Filipe and Manu. We will definitely recommend you to our friends.
All the best,
Shirin and Colin
