"Simply Heaven❤️Best trip and best experince in my life❤️"

I am 37 and it was my 1st surf in my life. I stayed for 1 week and had 1 or 2 surf sessions per day. Everything was PERFECT and greatly exceeded all the dream expectation that I had! I was in Heaven! Location, accomodation, food, atmosphere, video coaching, optional evening events, organization, vibes, Surf House and Surf Villa Team and all the AMAZING AND BEST IN THE WORLD surf instructors: Nic is a Miracle!❤️, thank you so much for giving me confidence and so much exposure to practicing and supporting with absolutely precious advice and giudance, Bica is Amazing!❤️, thank you so much for literally “hacking” my fears and giving me that unique sense of presence in the moment and the attitude “can do it”, Felipe is One Love!❤️, thank you so much for teaching me from the very beginning and helping me to come from my very first steps in surfing to progress, for giving me trust to myself in the Ocean and making it joyful and full of smiles and giving so many precious advice and help, Clau is a Sea Godess!❤️, and also teaches absolutely amazing yoga sessions - thank you so much for unprecented experience and all the miracle vibes you share around you!

That is only a modest description of my experience and my gratitude to all the team, I am so grateful to everyone❤️❤️❤️ It was the best time in my life, like a rebirth. I will return for sure. Now surfing is my Love❤️ and SurfCascais is my second home🤍.

Separate huge thanks to all volunteers - you are AMAZING🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻!

""Surf Camp Bliss: Catching Waves, Making Memories!"

I had an absolutely fantastic experience at the surf camp! The villa was stunning - spacious, modern, and impeccably clean, providing retreat after a day of surfing. The instructors were truly amazing and professional, guiding me every step of the way with patience and expertise, allowing me to progress remarkably in just one week. The atmosphere was so lovely and familiar, yet incredibly calming, making it the perfect place to unwind and immerse in the surf culture. I can't recommend this surf camp highly enough!

"An amazing experience ✨️"

The Surf House was clean and cosy and the bedroom very comfortable. We had a great time with the surf lessons and relaxed with yoga! All the teachers are very knowledgeable and patient, also the volunteers are helpful and kindly.

The location is not far from the centre of Cascais and also near to Sintra: we took a beautiful bike tour into Sintra's forest and move forward to Cascais with car service and bus.

Warmly reccommended. Thank you guys for all the smiles and the beauty you shared with: hope we seen you soon again :)

"Amazing surf experience"

I had such a nice time staying at the surf villa with Surf Cascais. Everyone was so friendly - just the nicest atmosphere! Surf instructors were great with us beginners, very patient and provided lots of useful feedback. Yoga teachers were also super and created a very relaxing environment. The villa is really comfortable accomodation (I liked that there were sockets even on the top bunks) and the breakfast was a good selection. The family dinner I attended was delicious. Overall, it was good value for money, great fun and well organised - would recommend to anyone!

The surf and yoga lessons were great, the teachers were good and patient with beginners. We saw progress very quickly.

We would definitely come back again.

- Great shower pressure!!!! Good facilities.

I thought Pedro was a really great instructor! Very encouraging, supportive, and energetic. Even though I had not surfed in a while and struggled, I felt encouraged to keep going and laugh at all the wipeouts. The location is very beautiful and the beach is also very nice. It is out of the city center, so if you do not enjoy calmer environments this may not be for you. The family dinners were delicious! A great deal for only 15 euros. Breakfasts are standard hostel breakfasts with bread, spreads (jams, butter, meats, and cheese), yogurt, and granola.

The surfing can be difficult with not great conditions, so I would suggest you go for a longer time to have more opportunities for good conditions. There are two main beaches that you will go to, we mostly went to Carcavelos. Overall, a very fulfilling experience despite an injury that prevented me from being able to surf for my whole stay. I think this hostel encouraged building relationships with peers and also the instructors were very great, accommodating, and adaptable to conditions. Definitely would recommend Surf Cascais!

"A perfect short escape from reality, zero stress"

Breakfast was lovely, the house is super chill and clean. The surf lessons were very well led by the instructors, who always tried to make sure you have a good time in and out the water.

The photo coaching was brilliant, and super helpful. Really appreciate the tips and getting a few good photos.

Yoga was really relaxing but still just the right level of challenging. Probably would have seized up entirely without it!

Lastly, all the staff and volunteers laughed at my jokes - maybe they're obligated to but I appreciated it all the same!

"Such an awesome week!"

Surf Cascais has the best vibe! Everyone is super friendly and goes out of their way to make sure you have an awesome time. The lessons were really well structured and I always felt safe and supported in the water, even when the conditions weren't as good. All of the instructors are super fun and knowledgeable and make such an effort to ensure you are loving every second of your holiday.

The house is also beautiful and perfect to chill out in/work remotely/get a suntan and Alize the chef cooked some awesome family dinners.

Absolutely loved my time at Surf Cascais and already want to go back!

"Amazing surf camp "

I had a short stay at Surf Cascais and my only regret is that I wish it were longer!

All the volunteers and instructors at the camp were amazing and very welcoming. The surf training itself was quality and they managed to help me feel comfortable on the board within a few lessons!

The atmosphere at the camp is second to none with a real family vibe and a great experience for solo travellers like I was, I managed to enjoy the BBQ night on my last day which was extremely fun too.

All in all can't recommend it enough and I hope to come back soon!

"perfect way to spend your spring or summer vacation:))"

The surf instructors and all the volunteers were so kind and helpful in every aspect of the trip (major shoutout to Stephanie!!) Not only were the surf instructors amazing surfers with their very best knowledge on hand, but they were patient and understanding with all the campers. They made it such a fun experience and I will definitely be coming back next year!

As for the house, the bedrooms and bathrooms were very accommodating and there was never an issue with either. Everyone had free range of the kitchen and was able to cook for themselves. The house was very comfy and cozy, the perfect environment to get to know all the other campers and feel at home!

"Very enjoyable stay in Cascais"

I had a wonderful 10 days at Surf Cascais. Their team is organised, kind, energetic and yet flexible and easy-going. We would mostly go to the same spot (Carcavelos) and usually ended up there early enough to have a nice peak for us. I could seamlessly change boards depending on the conditions, and always felt safe being with their team of surf instructors (thank you Bica, Pedro x 2, Ugo and Stéphanie for dealing with all my last-minute changes haha).

Besides surfing, I was staying in their quiet, cosy and well-furnished apartment, which is not to far from Cascais city center (20-minute walk) and to the villa (5-euro uber) where I could hang out to meet with other guests.

I definitely recommend staying there, whether you are a beginner or an intermediate surfer! 🏄

"Feels like home."

Wonderful people and very friendly atmosphere, I had equally good time surfing, doing yoga, hanging out around the pool or having a beer with guys. Super friendly and lovely atmosphere. 10/10 would do again.

"It was so great ! "

Nouveau concept qu'on a voulu tester avec mes copines, on a été super agréablement surprises !

La villa est agréable, toujours propre, avec une grande cuisine, un salon et une super piscine.

L'ambiance est très sympa, plutôt des jeunes, staff adorable et prêt à aider et les moniteurs de surf sont géniaux !

Des activités sont proposées (dîners, bbq, sunset dans les montagnes, shooting photo du surf et debriefing,...) puis il y a un petit bar sympa et on peut aller faire la fête à cascais après.

On a choisi le forfait 1 semaine avec une séance de surf par jour le matin et 2 cours de yoga, les cours étaient d'une grande qualité et grâce aux conseils des moniteurs on peut améliorer super rapidement notre niveau !

(Si vous êtes débutants comme nous je vous conseille de prendre une séance de surf et pas deux car c'est génial mais très fatigant, puis le reste de la journée on peut rester à la plage tranquille ou bien aller visiter cascais et les environs).

"Amazing vacation!"

Villa was so cool. My heart is stolen by staff and surf instructors 😍 They are so friendly and responsive. And thanks to instructor Andy I caught my first wave on the first lesson!

"Great experience, but a few things to adjust"

Other than those few observations, my boyfriend and I had a great time. Good vibes, stunning villa, nice people to hand out with, great yoga sessions, lovely double room for couples in front of the pool, transfer services, communication (excellent! fast, flexible, kind), lovely sense of community, international feeling. We made friends, exchanged contacts and left with a smile on our faces. For the first time in my life I enjoyed waking up early to surf with great people and amazing scenery. The feeling of standing on your boars is unforgetabble!


from France, July 2021

"Really great experience, I recommended it :) "

I had a very good time at Surf Cascais! It was my first surf experience and it went really well, all instructors were very good and patient! Besides, the house is really pleasant and confortable. You get to meet a lot of new people, but you can also remain independent so, for me it's the perfect balance! At the end, the localization is really great, the beach where we went to surf is really beautiful, and Cascais is a really cute city!

"Amazing experience with Amazing people!"

The house is beautiful, the people is always nice and really open, the surf instructors are fantastic, super funny and really committed to help you with your surf skills! I came just for one week and I had to stay one more because I didn’t want to go!

"Great villa and great people "

What made this experience exceptional was the people behind Surf Cascais. Everybody we met from the surf/yoga instructors to the volunteers from the house was very welcoming and kind. The villa was very clean and had everything we needed. Thanks for everything!

Kristina Gergedava

Nice villa, cool atmosphere, a bit far from the Cascais, but to get Uber to the town is quite cheap. Great experience overall 😊

"Big Time!"

All about the surf camp was great: the hosts, the guests, the villa, and surfing and yoga sessions. Just as I have expected and desired. Friendly, amicable, and respectful vibe all around the place. Professional surfing training. Great retreat. Hard to find any drawbacks, really.

Now, here some more fun facts about the hosts you might find interesting:

Bica is a joker and he used to perform gags in Jackass Team back in the day but now he keeps it secret.

David got his moustache once he went to Eastern Europe learning that it's in fashion. Both Pedros are twin brothers in fact. Henrique rolls with the babes in the weekends but on an usual day he doesn't want to admit it.

Randy creates new apps every now and then, being a multimillionaire, but he hates that so he keeps it easy. Ceci used to be a truck driver back in the 90's America. Bernardo is a ballet dancer.

They all make fantastic team of course.

Love you guys!!! Greets from Poland! :)

Lookng forward to having a next visit
