Portugal’s geographical position is unique in Europe: we benefit from around 700 km of open beach-breaks, reef-breaks and gorgeous bays rich in surfing spots. In Portugal we are blessed with great swells during most of the year.
Vitor and Antonio are two Portuguese friends passionate about surf, nature and Portuguese culture. Love to welcome new people, make new friends and show all about Portugal and surf. Join this experience!
At Ride351 we provide surf experiences for all surfers’ ages and levels – from beginners to advanced ones. We want to present you the best spots to surf, the best of our gastronomy and the most beautiful places to visit.
Experiences of Surf, Culture and Gastronomy in Portugal
I came in Portugal for the Web Summit, and then I decided to stay 5 more days in order to relax and surf, my way of meditation. I then decided to go to Ericeira.
I had the great chance to meet Antonio, the right guy in the right place. He showed around the best spot where to surf, brought me to the best surf rental shop (in terms of price and quality) and gave me a lot of useful tips. The best thing was a series of pics of me surfing..totally priceless!
Very kind and well organized, I'm looking forward to come and book a trip around Portugal with Ride351!
Thanks Antonio, was a pleasure to meet you! Até já!!November 2016
Great experience! I was jonesing for some surf and after getting in touch with Antonio, he quickly crafted a personalized trip. Most of my time was spent in beautiful, quaint Ericeira, bookended by a day in Lisbon (a beautiful city definitely worth exploring). In addition to getting me to some great surf (highly recommend Peniche) Antonio and Vitor went out of their way to make sure any days with less than stellar conditions were full of great cultural experiences. They have a passion for sharing incredible experiences and it shows. These guys are very professional and responsive, but they really made me feel like a friend, too. Really enjoyed my time here and I can’t recommend Surf351 highly enough! Can’t wait to go back.September 2016
When I was in Ericeira, I wanted to surf. It's been 2 years ago I surfed for the last time, so I could use some guidance. I preferred a trip asap and within one hour I was on the go with Vitor. We picked up a surfboard and went to the beach.
Because of the high tide there were no waves. We drove around to several beaches but nowhere was good surf. It was no problem at all. We canceled it for that day and made a new appointment the next day.
The surf was much better the other day. I felt pretty nervous for the first surf in two years, but Vitor made me feel comfortable. There was no pressure or pushing, they only want to share the great feeling of surfing. And it worked: I felt great after catching my first waves. Thanks guys!
I would definitely ride again with Ride351!August 2015
We decided to fly to Portugal for a last minute surf holiday this August and were looking for some surfing tips.
As our holiday was right in the middle of the busy month of August, it was not easy to find something...until we found Ride 351's website. We explained what we were looking for, and after 2 days Antonio came back to us with a tailor made "City, Surf & Yoga Experience" : 3 days in Lisbon to visit this charming city and 10 days in Ericeira...just enough time to fall in love with this place! :)
As this was a last minute booking and we had absolutely no time to check everything in depth due to a really busy work schedule, we were crossing fingers to have a nice trip until we arrived there.
Antonio scheduled everything for us from the airport/Lisbon/Ericera/airport pick ups, to the hostels in Lisbon and Eirceira as well as the Surf and Yoga classes, plus surf guiding including material rent (with great discounts thanks to their partnerships!). We had two dinners together in some typical places, and they paid attention to all details to make sure we could discover their home country, people, culture and food in the best way possible.Everything was just perfect, well planned, and we had nothing to worry about, but find something to eat while wandering in Lisbon and enjoying Ericeira :)
We spent 2 beautiful and peaceful weeks in Portugal, and because I don't have better words than the description of their cool video: "One adventure for your soul, mind and body. Ride with [them] in one unforgettable experience of surf, culture and gastronomy".
We are feeling a bit sad to be back home...but watching at the pictures they just sent us (because they also plan this for you to catch some great moments while you enjoy your holiday!) and their nice video makes us feel like we're there again ;) It's just a matter of time, we will definitely be back! Thanks a million for your incredible hospitality and just continue what you're doing, because you're doing it right. Thanks again for letting us spend one of our best holiday!
Cheers Antonio & Vitor!August 2015
