What you'll do

We'll get charged up for our surf or bodyboard session at one of Sintra´s uncrowded beaches. I will pick you up at the Sintra train station (or at your Accomodation in the Sintra area).
We will start with some light stretching and a quick lesson on equipment and safety. I'll teach you some surfing basics before heading out to the water to catch some waves.
Surfing or Bodyboarding?
On a Bodyboard we tend to get control over our equipment faster and having flippers means even if you are not a great swimmer you will feel very safe in the ocean. We are often able to paddle out and surf green waves on our first experience.
Surfing has become one of the biggest sports in the world, I will be taking you to the best suited waves for your skill level and within your comfort zone push you to ride the wave of your life.
This is a sport where you never stop learning and discovering, because no wave is ever the same.
Other things to note
Bring Sunscreen,Bathing suit, Snack´s and water. Note:there will be beach bars and places where you can get food and drink´s .

I was Born in Portugal and grew up in Sintra where I began Bodyboarding at the age of 7. Over the years I have been competing in National and International events and am also a Experienced Certified Surf Instructor.
My passion for Surfing and my Background in Adventure Tourism has inspired me to become a host and show you the beautifull sintra coastline thru my eyes.
Having American and German parents and growing up in Portugal means conversing in different languages comes fluently to me. Now settled in my home country I’m exited to share my passion and knowledge with other aspiring surfers.

Such an awesome experience. I went Surfing with 3 different schools around Lisbon/Sintra and this was by far the best. The instructors are great and the place is beautiful!

It was our first attempt of surfing and we were a bit afraid of how hard it should be. But Nicolas made our lesson very comfortable and easy, he and his colleges guided every person to the waves, so we always felt safe. We've enjoyed it so much, and it was great that we were picked up from Sintra an then back. It was an amazing experience!

Great experience - Nicolas was super friendly and a great teacher! We were picked up from the centre of Sintra and driven to a beach, where we were kitted out with all we needed. Then to the beach for 2 hours of surfing, coached by Nicolas and his colleagues. A fab way to spend an afternoon

Nic was a fantastic teacher. I’ve never surfed before and was able to stand up a bunch of times. We got to get to know him on our drive to and from the beach and learn a little about the coast too. Overall an awesome experience that I would highly recommend!!!
