Portuguese and Surfing in Lisbon

Portuguese and Surfing in Lisbon

Among Lisbon’s many wonderful things to see and do, one of the main things that attracts our students to this fascinating city is its beach culture. With beautiful sandy beaches surrounding the city and stretching along three coastlines, it is no surprise that surfing in Lisbon is a popular sport amongst tourists and locals alike. And with such stunning views of the colourful city from out at sea, you won’t be able to resist the urge to grab your surfboard and head to the beach! To make things even easier, we offer a special combined Portuguese and Surfing course at our school in Lisbon, giving you the opportunity to sharpen up on your Portuguese skills and learning to surf in your free-time, whilst meeting like-minded students from across the world.

Surf Classes will be scheduled depending upon the weather conditions, and take place in mini-groups of around 6 students. The course price includes transportation, all necessary surf materials and insurance.
