He graduated in Urbanism and plays his main professional activity in the Municipality of Lisbon. However reconciles always sporting with his professional practice.
The accumulated experience of long years and the pleasure he gets when surfing sparked her interest in sharing it with others. What motivates him most in teaching is "the Surf stoke he sees in his pupils regardless of age of each one", Paulo tells us.
The biggest lesson he drew from surfing over the years is that "despite my Surfing level is higher today, it amuses me exactly as the day i started." And that´s what is all about, having fun!

SURF COURSE DETAILS

We remain connected to our original mission and, as such, at Surf Lisbon we don´t want clients just to learn or improve their Surfing technique, but also to give them knowledge and motivate them to relate to the context and unique culture that this sport represents.
We give priority to quality over quantity and, above all, the safety of our clients, leading us to the various stages of training (beginner, advanced and competition) as well as for different environments (social or recreational and competitive) with the aim of bringing anyone to surf through a safe and fun process of teaching and learning, based on the latest research in training methodology of Surfing.
Surf Lisbon - House & School is licensed with permit No. 333 / 2014 of Turismo de Portugal, IP (public institution that regulates maritime activity companies) and it´s a school certified by the Portuguese Surfing Federation (No.180). Our General Manager is also one of the Portuguese Surfing Federation´s Instructors Course trainers and taught a Surfing course in the Sports Sciences graduation at one of the best Sports Universities in the World, Faculty of Human Movement, in Lisbon.
How it works?
Surf Lisbon - The School comprises three technical levels: Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced / Competition. With the exception of one of the Intermediate options and the Advanced (which works in a monthly fee basis), classes are developed by packages of 5 or 10 units or even single classes both group and / or private lessons. These packages have a one year validity and surfers can join / book lessons according to their availability.
Our schedules are set weekly, according to the best conditions for the matching levels and students are notified via email.
Beginners level is open to everyone who never surfed before and to those who had some previous contact with the sport, regardless of age, gender or fitness level. We have boards and wetsuits appropriate to each person so that learning is done in an effective, safe and pedagogic way.
Surf Lisbon provides all the equipment needed, including surfboard and wetsuit. Any student who carries out activities with us is covered by a personal accidents insurance and also a liability insurance. Each Surfing lesson has approximately a 2 hours duration.
The Intermediate level is appropriated for those who have already some experience in Surfing and want to evolve to a superior level. After an inicial evaluation by the Head Coach the surfer will join an homogeneous group.
The acceptance on these intermediate groups is subject to assessment of the Head Coach and surfers must have their own equipment (but if the Instructor sees some specific need the surfer can use a surf school board). These lessons can take place at different spots around Lisbon depending on the forecast and wave conditions.
Sometimes we use video and photo shooting on these lessons for further technical analysis.
