Regular lessons for children and adults

We offer surf lessons in Carcavelos, between Lisbon and Cascais, since the year 2000 and we don't intend to stop. We are an accredited surf school and all our teachers are certified by the Federation. Our training is done in a relaxed and familiar atmosphere but we always keep the focus on teaching and an obsession with safety (maximum of 3 students per teacher). These are our regular lessons.

  • Escola de Surf Angels Surf School (Madalena)
    Progression lessons are great and teachers give us a lot of support. In a short amount of time I was able to eliminate many mistakes and improve my surfing skills. Besides, the lessons are always fun.

  • Escola de Surf Angels Surf School (Pedro)
    I am very glad to be a member of Angels' family. These 3 years changed my life completely. I was able to evolve thanks to the great teachers, specially to "Nozes", that was patient enough to put up with me all this time and help me improve my surfing skills drastically. Thank you for everything!
