Then, you will jump into the water to put into practice everything you have learnt on the sand.

    João went out of his way to make sure we had the best first experience to surfing as well as recommending fantastic foods and appreciating beautiful Cascais by showing us different parts on our way to our surf lesson. Highly recommend to anyone!

    Had a great time surfing! Beautiful location for a fun activity. The instructor was very experienced which made us feel safe and we really felt we learnt something in the session. Joao was also kind enough to share lots of great tips about the local area!

    As i came to Lisbon to study for half a year, i asked Joāo to show me the surf spots arounds Lisbon and was not dissapointed! He knew a lot about the area, he could show me the coolest surf spots, was very friendly and gave me a super nice day!

    Сёрфинг , хороший, грамотный и позитивный инструктор, сделает все возможное , что бы на первом занятии вы встали на доску! Surfing, a good, competent and positive instructor, will do everything possible.

    João was such a lovely, fun and patient guide - and the beach where we did our surf lesson was gorgeous. We also did boulder climbing, and sport climbing on the sea cliffs. Sintra, where we had our picnic and bouldered, was beautiful, and our cliff climbing at the coast was stunning too. I’d go on a Cascais Routes adventure again in a heartbeat; it was absolutely brilliant. João couldn’t have been more relaxed or more helpful. It was also really good value. 5 star!

    Deux semaines formidables de leçons de surf à Guincho pour les enfants! Gentillesse, professionnalisme et fun, les enfants ont adoré et surtout bien progressé grâce à l'engagement et l'expertise de Vasco. Nous avons trouvé notre coach pour les prochaines vacances! Bravo à l'équipe de Cascais Routes.

    The weather was perfect and so was our coach, Joao! Our first time surfing and we both made it up on our boards more than once. We had a blast and can't wait to go back and have more adventures with Cascais Routes!

    Joao helped me with the basis of surfing and accompanied me in every step of the learning process so that I would feel reassured on the surf board. It was a truly amazing experience and made me love surfing from the very first moment. The praia de Guincho was a paradise and besides very helpful, Joao was very concerned about the environment and picked up every little piece of litter that he found on the way to keep the beach clean and preserve the nature.
