Program

Surf in Portugal - Cascais

Portugal is a great place for surfing, along with France, England, and Spain, it is one of the top European countries for surfing. There are plenty of surf spots in the wider Lisbon area, and it’s where a lot of locals like to surf. Especially on the weekends! Several well-known spots include Carcavelos, Guincho (a popular spot for kite surfing and windsurfing as well), Bolina, and Monte Estoril.

These spots are extremely enjoyable when there’s a powerful swell from the southwest and wind blowing from the northeast. If you book surf lessons in Cascais, you will be surprised by the beauty and variety of the beaches.

Free Spirit House is located five minutes from Guincho beach and 15 minutes from Carcavelos and these are the main spots they will take you every day. A surfer van will come to pick you up at the house for your surf lessons in Cascais and drop you back at the house again. The lesson takes approximately two hours but with the trip, you can count around three to four hours. The price of lessons includes the wetsuit, the surfboard, and the lesson but it excludes the transport, which is an extra 5 EUR.

Sample schedule of activities

  • 08:00 Yoga
  • 10:00 Surf lessons in Obidos Lagoon

Free Spirit House Cascais teaches all levels of surfers, beginner, intermediate, and advanced.

When are you considered a beginner as a surfer?

Someone who has never surfed before, or only once or twice, is considered to be a beginner. So up to and including the level that allows you on a good day to glide along with the white water of a broken wave and stay on your board. You'll surf on a larger surfboard, ranging from mini Malibu to a soft top.

Intermediates can surf down-the-line, duck dive, and make at least a few turns in succession. To be considered advanced, you can easily go for any type of wave. You'll surf rail to rail easily and you'll use various boards for different types of waves.

Location

The house has a premium location! The surf camp is in Cascais but besides being very close to the city center, they still offer you the possibility of a shuttle that takes you to the center once a day and transports you to the beach if you do a surf or kite surf lesson. If you want to be independent the key references are the following:

  • Train station - 8 minutes by car - 30 minutes walking - 16 minutes by bus.- 16 minutes bicycle, 2.6 kilometers
  • Guincho beach - 9 minutes by car - 30 minutes bicycle, 4.7 kilometers

There are two buses five minutes from the house, number 409 and 417, that take 10 minutes to the center.

If you want to rent a car, there is plenty of parking space outside and you should rent at the airport with Europcar that has the lowest rates on average, 10 EUR/day.
