Frequently asked questions

What's the ratio between instructors / students in the group lessons?

Surf Cascais have a maximum of 5 students per 1 instructor. This ratio will depend on the students level, place of the lessons and also the conditions. After the warm-up, they make the different groups and each level stays with a different instructor.

Can I choose the time of the lessons?

In order to provide the best surf lessons possible, the schedule changes every week according to the ideal tide, wave and wind conditions. Surf Cascais are only sure about the place and time for your lesson +/- 3 days before! During high season (May - October), you will normally have 2 lessons a day, so you can choose which one suits you better. Surf lessons can be schedule in the morning between 7am and 1pm, afternoon between 1pm and sunset.

What do I need to take for the surf lessons?

Surf Cascais provide the equipment (surfboard and wetsuit). You only need to bring a beach towel, swimwear, sunscreen and they recommend to keep a bottle of water with you. Please avoid high valuable belongings (expensive cameras, laptops, etc.), even if you come with your own car or rental car.

Can I keep the surf equipment after the lessons?

The equipment is included only during the time of the lesson. If you want to practice more Surf Cascais charge an extra 25 EUR / pax for 2 hours surfboard + wetsuit). If you have a 5 lessons package and booked the morning sessions you can use the material for that price until the end of the second session.

Are the lessons only for beginners?

Whether you’ve been surfing for some time or it is your first time, Surf Cascais manage to prepare different surf groups according to each student level. Surf Cascais cover 3 different surf levels; beginners, intermediates and advanced (surf guiding). According to this they offer different types of boards with different sizes and materials, soft and epoxy/fiber boards starting from 5'11 up to 9'0.

Do you offer lessons every day? What's the schedule of my lessons?

Surf Cascais have daily lessons: 2 surf sessions during the mid/high season (March to October) and 1 lesson during the low season (November to March). During low season we might not have lessons every day due to the conditions. They schedule the lessons every week, according to the best tide, wave and wind conditions. The schedule of your lessons will be sent by email a couple of days before your arrival.

What is the minimum number of lessons to learn the basics?

Surf Cascais always recommend their students to have a minimum of 5 lessons if they want to have a proper surf experience. For an intense surf learning, the ''Surfing Days'' or ''Full Surf Pack'' in the Surf Camp would be the best option, with 2 x 2h surf lessons a day!

How are the conditions in low / mid season?

To be honest, those are the best months to surf! In Cascais, they have Carcavelos beach that is really protected from the big winter swells (waves in the ocean) and perfect for learning! The wind is pretty much offshore every day, providing clean conditions. Weather-wise, the sun shines almost 70% of the Winter and outside temperatures go between 10ºC to 17ºC, with water temperature never bellow 15ºC.

When will my surf lessons start?

The surf lessons are programmed to always start on the day after your arrival. The exact hours of the lessons change every week, according to the best conditions, so Surf Cascais can’t tell the exact time for your start. If you wish to start on your arriving day or later please let them know.

Do you provide bed linen and towels? What about amenities?

All the beds (including shared rooms) have clean sheets, blanket, and shower/face towels. For maximum comfort, the toilets in the private rooms have shampoo and shower gel. We also have beach towels to rent for an extra 4 EUR (full duration of your stay).

Do you provide any meal besides breakfast?

Only breakfast is included in the price. Surf Cascais have a fully equipped kitchen where you can prepare your meals and a fridge where you can store your food.

Are there any restaurants close to the villa?

Is the free parking around the villa?
