Love Luis and Rogerio. First of all they are fun. And they are good surf teachers who see your individual "habbits" to improve. The equipment was good too. Will see you soon again, thanks for the great time!

We had one week of surf lessons by Luis and Rogerio in June 2014. We've done lessons before, but Luis and Rogerio are by far the best teachers I've had until now. Their focus is 100% on the students, observing their skills and providing feedback. Paddling with you out back, pushing you on a green wave etc. Besides their great lessons, they are also super fun guys to hang out with. I would definitely recommend Solfun and consider going there again myself. Enjoy the surf!!

Hey! Just wanted everyone to know that if you go to visit Lisbon plan one of the days to go surfing and enjoy the amazing experience we had!! We came to visit portugal an we're recommended to take surfing class at soulful surf school. I had no idea what to expect and it was amazing. With short notice we booked the class, Luis was great help and booked a hotel for us. We had just 2h class where I learned real important basic how to surf and now can practice the moves at home. This made me love surfing even more and iim definitely planing to return to the amazing beach so I can improve my surfing skills.
Luis was the most patient and fun teacher. We spend great time surfing and also walking around Sintra. Thanks a lot!! Recommend to everyone experience we had!

Luis is the perfect surfing coach. He's an easy going fella and will give you all the training you need to start surfing. He's also cool outside of the water and when I was there brought 6 of us into Lisbon for the night and showed us a great time. I've also sent friends to surf with him and they said he did a similar thing with them in Sintra. 5 stars for sure on surfing, local knowledge and all around fun.
