Exciting news! South Adventures, reputed to be one of the best kitesurf and stand up paddle schools in Portugal will be relocating to Lisbon, Portugal's Capital City from January 2013. Partners Ricardo Taveira and Sofia Teles, both highly experienced kitesurfers and stand up paddlers will return to Lisbon after teaching in the Algarve for nine years.

The relocation will also allow South Adventures to add surfing activities to their repertoire. Ricardo's passion for water sports began with surfing 27 years ago and he couldn't wait to start teaching in Lisbon.

We will have now a water sport for every weather condition. If there are waves you can surf or sup, if there is wind you can kitesurf, and if there is flat water you can sup. Not many schools can boast such a fantastic location and so many activities.

Lisbon's close proximity to the sea and easy access to Costa da Caparica, Guincho, Troia, Ericeira and Peniche beaches make it an ideal choice for an adventure holiday combined with a fantastic cultural choice, great shopping, very good typical food and a vibrant night life, so when the surfing stops there is still plenty more to enjoy on your holiday.

South Adventures will supply the transportation, tuition, storage and equipment for all their activities and with prior arrangement Sofia would be available if any girls felt that they would be more comfortable with a female instructor.

The location changed, but the quality standards, commitment and adrenaline set in each day will continue exactly the same. Or even better!


Founded in 2004 by Ricardo Taveira, certified instructor by IKO - International Kiteboarding Organization - Sofia Teles, also a IKO certified instructor, South Adventures is a company that is specialized in today's most successful sports Kitesurf, Surf and SUP (stand up paddle).
