About Us

The SUP school SurfnPaddle PADDLEBOARD CENTRE CASCAIS was the first school in Cascais, launched in 2010 and in 2018 it has added surfing to the school.


Renowned for our friendly staff and for our professionalism with all our paddle boarding and surfing activities, we promote paddle boarding to its maximum for all the benefits the sport can offer and surfing for the sheer delight that it brings, in a completely natural environment. Your enjoyment, well-being and safety are very important to us.We have grown steadily and in summer of 2014 we acquired an excellent space on the beachfront, where we have our shop and school on Praia do Duquesa today, an idea location with great beach, water access, close to public transport and in magical Cascais.

Our Owner

Hi I’m Nick Evans, owner of SurfnPaddle!


My passion for the ocean started in dinghy sailing from the age of 8 where I was introduced to the Topper, a small basic one man vessel which you could put on your car, in my case my fathers car and go to the beach.  Immediately I was hooked and went through a series of dinghy’s, including, lasers, tornados, fireballs etc until my mid teens where my brother got me into windsurfing.


Here my life changed forever, I was hooked, all my free time was spent on the water mastering this sport, sometimes driving for hours to find the best conditions. Usually when there was no wind I would go surfing, anything to be on the water.


In my thirties after a career in banking I decided to move over to Portugal, Guincho in fact where I knew there would be some of the best conditions for surfing and windsurfing in Europe.  Here I stayed, initially working in banks then later being more involved in tourism.


Today, with a strong background and understanding of the ocean and conditions I have put all my experience into something which I feel very passionate about and believe in, Surfnpaddle.  My knowledge from the UK, where I became a qualified instructor allowed me to both work hands on teaching/instructing but developing a successful tourism business.


I look forward to the opportunity to show you our beautiful Portugal coastline and some of the wonderful places you can visit and enjoy.
