Santa Cruz Surf Lodge is built by surfers and our surf school is our pride. Expect nothing but the best as our teachers are all certified ISA Level 2 (International Surfing Association), or equivalent, and trained beach / surf lifeguards. With years of experience from multiple locations around the world they are eager to teach in the way suiting you the best, allowing you to develop in your own pace. In our surf school you will only use the best equipment to be found on the market. The beginner will find easy and safe boards to start off on, as well as performance surfboards for the intermediate and advanced surfer.
To make sure we surf the best spot of the day we transport you and equipment to and from the beach in our vehicles. Surf courses offered are 3 – 4 hours a day, 5 days a week with one intense lesson with your coach and one supervised free surf session to practice new skills learned during the lesson in a safe and enjoyable environment.
We know the importance of individual teaching and our pride is to deliver you the best and innovative teaching focusing on safety and your development during the week. Our experienced instructors are trained to teach all levels of surfers from professional to beginner. Lessons are divided between theory and practice on the beach. Back in our comfortable lodge we give you one / two theory lessons and offer you video assisted coaching to maximize your personal development during your stay with us.
A day at the beach surfing is the best way to spend a day possible. But it can be tiring and during the breaks we encourage you to refill your energy levels with a snack on the beach or in one of the numerous beach bars.


Thanks to the numerous surf spots in the area we can guarantee to find you amazing waves everyday. Normally our beginner course will take place in the local beaches of Praia Azul, Santa Cruz and Santa Rita. In case the conditions will not be safe at this beach we will move for a little surf trip along the nearby coast. Within a short drive of less than 30 min we can reach over +30 different spots in order to guarantee the best conditions that this pristine coastline can offer. Starting from our local beach of Santa Cruz, Santa Rita, Praia Azul and with short distance to well known surf hubs of Ericeira and Peniche we are sure to find great conditions everyday, all year around.
Our courses are always divided in level of skills and experience in order to guarantee the best attention and feedback to each client!
