    "I had my first surfing experience with Ricardo, while I was offered a couch at his place when visiting Lisbon for the first time. So, a lot of first times but more importantly great times! Concerning the surf lessons, I felt confident in the water with the surfboard because of the constant supervision of Ricardo and his encouragements. I gladly recommend the services that he his offering because of the passion he has for sharing them with his visitors."

    "I'm one of those Asians that don't know how to swim, let alone surf. But Ricardo encouraged me to get out of my comfort zone. I did And it was the best decision I've ever made! Instead of fearing the waves and the ocean I now embrace them wholeheartedly. The most important thing that some instructors failed to do is calming and encouraging you. This is critical because You cannot swim or float if there's fear in your mind."


    "He is professional and super patient!!! I did not feel like it was a "class" bcuz I had so much fun learning it. He taught step by step and it was more fun than anything else. He really pushes you to achieve more than you think you can. After an hour or so I finally did it, I swam! I felt so proud of myself!!! Then I got on the surf board, with his help I was able to slide through the water and the feeling was amazing; it feels fun and FREE! It's Like skating on water."


    "You have to believe in yourself and believe in him as an instructor. Then you will be able to achieve something you thought you could never done!"

    "I highly recommend booking a swimming/surfing class or a tour with 7Waves! You'll have the best time of your life because it brings back that childhood expeience. Lots of fun in the sun. ☀️"

    "I had the best time of my life with Ricardo and his friends. He made me feel home in Lisbon. We went to the beach for camping and surfing lessons, went to Sinatra, made lots of sightseeing tours in Lisbon and cooked together. Ricardo is an amazing cook. Furthermore he made me a tattoo. I enjoyed his company permanently. His house is like a hostel. I met wonderful people from all over the world and it felt like a huge international family."
