Since 2001, Dr. Bernard Surf School has been offering surfing lessons with a team of about ten qualified teachers. Dr. Bernard Surf School is also involved in the development of surfing in Costa Da Caparica. Every year, we organise an international surfing competition (Caparica Surf Fest Pro), Surf Camps for children and teenagers.
Our instructors speak Portuguese, English, French, Spanish and Portuguese. They work a lot with children/teenagers but also with people who are more advanced and want to improve.

Services available: Surf Lessons (Level 1 and Level 2); Rentals; Changing Rooms for Male/Female; Lockers; Board Storage

Equipment is included in the price


Group Lessons – with a ratio of 1 coache per 5 surfers – based on the technical level, age and other characteristics – is the perfect option to learn surf with friends and share good moments!

Personal Trainer – Individual classes, one-to-one. You will spend 2 hours with a dedicated teacher to learn the basis or work on your style and some movements. It’s the best option if you want to learn fast! After a few private lessons you will be able to go surfing alone!

Kids Classes – We know that security is the top priority for the new “Groms”, that’s why we established a specific service for children from 6 to 12 years old. Our teaching methodology is applied to ensure that your children learn to surf in the best possible conditions. These classes are limited to 5 students (as the age factor vs. technical level).

“Come on Jay, it’s your birthday!” – A surf lesson birthday party is a fun, active and memorable way for you to spend time together with your friends and family. We can customize the lesson to your group! For more information, click here.
