Hence expect nothing but the best as our teachers are all certified ISA Level 2 (International Surfing Association), or equivalent certification.

To make sure you surf the best spot of the day we transport you and your equipment to and from the beach in our vehicles.

Surf Lessons

We know the importance of individual teaching. Our pride is to deliver you the best and innovative teaching focusing on safety and your development during the week. Our experienced instructors can 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 a theory lesson and offer you a video assisted coaching session 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 therefore 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.

In addition during 3 of these sessions the guides will get the camera out so they can do some video coaching back at the lodge. The surf guides will drive you to the best spots, sometimes going as far south as Caparica (1 hour) or as far north as Ferrel (40 minutes) to find the best waves. Moreover if your skill level and the conditions line up they may even take you to Peniche (30 minutes) or Ericeira (20 minutes).
