Surf School

"Surf Lisbon - The School", Lisbon Surf School

After 6 years under the name of "Puro Surf - Boardsports Academy” and the growth and internationalization that this prestigious portuguese surf school gained we decided to come across for a rebranding which updated and made our brand stronger, facing various segments and appropriate to the new era of teaching modern Surfing in a professional way.

We remain connected to our original mission and, as such, at Surf Lisbon we don´t want clients just to learn or improve their Surfing technique, but also to give them knowledge and motivate them to relate to the context and unique culture that this sport represents.

We give priority to quality over quantity and, above all, the safety of our clients, leading us to the various stages of training (beginner, advanced and competition) as well as for different environments (social or recreational and competitive) with the aim of bringing anyone to surf through a safe and fun process of teaching and learning, based on the latest research in training methodology of Surfing.

Surf Lisbon - House & School is licensed with permit No. 333 / 2014 of Turismo de Portugal, IP (public institution that regulates maritime activity companies) and it´s a school certified by the Portuguese Surfing Federation (No.180). Our General Manager has a 16 year experience as a surf instructor, taught a Surfing course in the Sports Sciences graduation at one of the best Sports Universities in the World, Faculty of Human Movement, in Lisbon, and was also one of the Portuguese Surfing Federation´s Instructors Course trainers.

How it works?

Surf Lisbon - The School comprises three technical levels: Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced / Competition. With the exception of one of the Intermediate options and the Advanced (which works in a monthly fee basis), classes are developed by packages of 5 or 10 units or even single classes both group and / or private lessons. These packages have a one year validity and "surfers” can join / book lessons according to their availability. The pacakges are for individual use only. We only allow sharing lessons from the same packages to direct relatives: husband / wife, brother / sister, parents / sons,...

Our schedules are set weekly, according to the best conditions for the matching levels and students are notified via email. To confirm your attendance, you only have to reply that email or send SMS to school´s number: + 351 91 285 00 66 with the lesson (s) you plan to attend. If you have preference for any other time just let us know your availability sending an email to

For logistic and organization reasons, any absence not reported until 5PM of the day before will be counted as if the student had attended the lesson, regardless of the reason that led to this absence.
