FAQ

Do I need experience to join the trip?

No experience is necessary! Beginners are welcome. Most of our guests have never done Paddle-board before. You do not need any particular swimming skills either, as long as you can swimm. The prerequisite is a healthy spirit of curiosity and adventure.

Is Paddleboard a safe activity?

Your safety is our number one concern. Our guides are the best trained professionals. They will be constantly watching out for your safety. In general, paddleboard is safer than most other outdoor pursuits!

How stable are the boards?

We have different types of boards. If it is your first experience, you might fall a couple of times and there is nothing wrong with it.

Our coaches are experienced Paddleboarders and are just addicted to paddle surf. For sure they will share their passion with you.

What kind of people go on your paddle-board courses?

People a lot like you! Although there is a great variety of people who participate in our paddleboard courses, one common thing everyone shares is a love of the outdoors. Our guests like to be active and involved.

Are there age limits for the experience?

Not at all! The ages of most guests range from the early teens through mid-60’s. Children are most welcome above 7 years old.

Do I need to get in shape for the course?

If you enjoy hiking, bicycling, or swimming, then you are already in shape for paddleboarding. If you don’t exercise regularly, we recommend you do some activities that use your upper body, arms and shoulders for about two weeks before the course.

How much paddling will we do on the session?

It is up to you! We usually paddle during one hour and a half to two hours, with some breaks in between.

When is the best time of year to go?

Anytime of the year is good as Portugal has got a Mediterranean climate. Average air temperature are 17ºC from October to March, 22ºC from April to June and 26ºC from July to September. We can lend you a wetsuit in case it is necessary.

Are there showers and restrooms available?

Oeiras harbour provides restrooms and warm showers. You will also be able to store your belongings in a safe place before the trip.

What should I bring for the paddle board course?

Same as if you were going to surf or to the beach. Bring spare clothes to dress after the session. Don´t forget sun protection and a hat as sun can be pretty strong.

I already have experience. Will my skills improve?

Definitely. Our guides are very experienced and can instruct you in many of the finer skills of Stand Up Paddling. They love teaching, so just let them know what you would like to work: paddling technique, racing, reading waves or any topic you desire.
