OUR MOST EPIC MOMENTS
Check out some great waves our team members scored.
We, that’s two schoolmates from Berlin, started in running Surf & Yoga Retreats (Karma Surf Retreat) in 2012. As passionate surfers that really like to share what we love, we acquired local and international teaching licenses, started our own surf school in 2015 and started to provide surfing lessons with our local partners for our Yoga & Surf Retreat at Algarve and Lisbon area.
At Karma Surf School we follow a holistic concept of QUALITY, SKILLS, DETAILS and PASSION for what you LOVE doing most - TEACH SURFING.
Last but not least, we just love to put smiles on peoples faces.
Our fully legally and by FPS acknowledged surf school already successfully operates for years making clients happy.
Being a mobile surf school we hold licences to teach surfing at various beaches along the south and west coast of Cascais (Lisbon area) and south-west Algarve around Sagres.
All surf instructors are passionate about surfing and experienced in teaching how to surf. They are fully licensed (FPS, ISA, ASI), including beach life-saver certificate.
They have profound knowledge of the local area and will only give beginners lessons in suitable surf conditions - like waist deep water and small and easy broken waves (whitewater) perfect for progressing and having fun enjoying the sun, beach and waves.

Roland spent his holiday times chasing waves around the world, from Cape Verdes to Indonesia and to the Basque Country. These experiences made him a profound surfer, so he combined passion with profession and moved to Portugal, where he could build up his skills and develop new abilities as a surf instructor while transmitting his passion for surfing to our guests. Always with lots of patience and a smile on his face.
