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
We're a family with two young boys. Very last minute we decided to look for a surf trip in Portugal to escape from the Irish weather and through the normal means we found nothing until I sent off a request to Ride351 with our preferred location and dates. I didn't hold out much hope but to my surprise Antonio responded quickly with a customised itinerary which was exactly what we were looking for: transport, a lovely hotel central to Cascais, surfing, a tour of Lisbon and Sintra and a chance to taste some great dishes and specialities along the way.
But in the end it was so much more than that. It was almost like having a private chauffeur and knowledgeable guide at your service at all times with many wonderful and generous surprises along the way. We have travelled a lot over the years but I can honestly say we've never felt so relaxed and well taken care of. My husband had never been to Portugal before and definitely wants to return, I got to eat the best octopus I have ever tasted and the kids can't stop talking about their amazing surfing holiday :)August 2017
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
