There are many different companies around Lisbon offering Surf Tours or Surf Surfaris as we like to call them.
You might have a few questions on what this means or what a Surfari should consist of, since it can be a broad subject to cover.
To understand a Surfari, we think it is fundamental to understand some of a Surfers Core Values.
Surfers are explorers by nature, curious thrill seekers, self-proclaimed meteorologists, waiting for weeks on end for that perfect swell to fill in.
Basically, a surfer will do what it takes to find perfect uncrowded waves.
These are the same values that should be passed on by any proper surf tour experience you that engage in.
Your Surfari tour guide should be a local that knows the coastline better than anyone else and can point out the possible dangers of each spot and make you feel comfortable in the line-up.
A surfari or surf tour is usually great if you already have some experience in the ocean.
Is there a difference between a surf lesson and a surf surfari?
We would say the main difference is that a surf lesson is usually with a larger group of people with a bigger student to instructor ratio.
A Surfari ends up being a more personal experience where you get more of a feeling of a true surfer’s daily life.
