Make your way to Oeiras Harbour, a short train journey from Lisbon and Cascais, and head to the Bork You Store on the waterfront. Here, you’ll greet your instructor and get kitted out in your protective gear.
Initially, you’ll master basic paddleboard techniques on the sand: learn to balance, steer and stroke, in addition to falling and recovery techniques. Once you feel confident, take to the water and paddle to picturesque spots such as Santo Amaro Beach and the sea fortresses of St. Julian.
During your lesson, you’ll have the chance to increase your paddleboard endurance by travelling the distance you feel most comfortable with.
After two hours, return your equipment to the office and bid your instructor farewell.
