Who we are

Vasco Dias surf coach

We are a family of surfers in Ericeira with over 40 years of surfing


The Extra Surf School comes to Ericeira as a partner of the prestigious surf brand Rip Curl.

We were the first Surf School with a surf shop in Ericeira, in front of Praia de São Sebastião, to satisfy all the needs of surfers who arrived in this beautiful town. Since 2019, we have been fully committed to the surf school only.

Founded by Vasco Dias, a local surfer, Extra Surf School is based on his more than 40 years of surfing background and knowledge. 

Vasco’s surfing passion and knowledge will come across in all our surfing offers, and you will get that expert instruction and unique.

Our surf school was born to teach you how to face all challenges and make surfing an integral part of your life.

We want Surf to become the battery charger that will leave you healthy and light day by day.

With the long experience and knowledge of surfing, we have managed to maintain the values that we want to have while surfing, as well as in our surf classes, differentiating ourselves from the other schools. We are one of the oldest schools in Ericeira, which continues to work with small groups and different surfing levels.

We are demanding in choosing our team so that we can provide the best surf lessons in Ericeira.

For us, fast and effective learning of our students is our goal!


Our values are to teach surfing not as a mass sport but as a personal fulfillment through the gratifying contact with the sea and the wonderful feeling of riding waves.


We believe that surfing goes beyond the sport itself. As a surf school, we prioritize ecological and social components, relationships, and ways of being.

We are here to help you connect with the ocean's powerful energy and conquer the waves.

We privilege the principle of reciprocity. We have great satisfaction in seeing our students happy and fulfilled.

" The passion that makes us surf is the same that we will use to teach you! "
