Very happy with the surfing experience, I undertook a 3 day surf course, which really equates to a 6 session package. The standard structure is normally 2 sessions per day (be warned 2 sessions per day is quite tough when taken in strong conditions) but tide conditions dictated the single sessions occurred over consecutive days, which worked out preferable. The setup is very good, the pickup is in a central Lisbon location and surfing are in beaches near by to Lisbon. So the overall package is very good, for the price you receive wet-suit, board, transportation (to/from) Lisbon, which when all considered is a good package as the beaches are 20-30 km's from Lisbon and you see areas and beaches normal tourists would not see.The reality of surfing is after 1 session you are able to stand only, 2 sessions per day is tiring, around day 3-4 you are able comfortably stand, turn and walk the board.My Recommendation: If doing 1 day, 1 session (2 hours) is fine, and you get the surf experience and get to see the beaches and places around Lisbon. There is very little skill difference between the first 1-2 sessions. If doing multiple days, buy the packages (i.e. 3 day or more) and design it for 1 session per day, and spread it over multiple days, you get to see multiple beaches around Lisbon and you let the body recover for each session. Assume around day 3-4 you start to feel very comfortable on the board and you can consider your-self an actual surfer.
