Are you looking for the perfect place to learn surfing in Portugal? 

We offer tailor made programs for surf leaners and guiding sessions for the advanced.

Portugal is a special destination for surfing all year around in the most scenic landscapes. Surfing in Portugal is recognized as one of the best surfing in the World from the giant waves of Nazare to intermediate and beginner waves. You will find all types of waves from North to South coast of Portugal in the most scenic and breathtaking natural beaches to beaches 20m from the cities Lisbon and Porto. In Portugal there will be waves for all levels at all seasons.

It’s one of the most consistent places to surf in the world. Our west coast picks up most swells, which means that during the winter months, it gets big sometimes. That’s the perfect season for advanced surfers. From mid-May to October, temperatures are warmer and the waves smaller, but there will always be a spot on for every level.






Our surf programs are comprehensive in that it not only includes plenty of time in the surf. Each surfing session is progressive and goal-oriented for each of the participants, during  the surf session, your coach will be discussing with you how you progressed learning that new skill.


 We are careful not to mix ability levels. Therefore there will be a maximum of 5:1 student-instructor ratio at all times. This will also mean that you will never have to wait for others to keep up or feel left behind.



If you aren’t sure what level you are, have no fear! Our instructors will assess your level once you arrive and alocate you to the correct group.

"Surfing soothes me. It's always been a kind of Zen experience for me. The ocean is so magnificent, peaceful, and awesome. The rest of the world disappears for me when I'm on a wave."


– Paul Walker



The lesson time is usually fixed the night before, making it easier for the planning. The timing depends on the best surf conditions for your level.

Usually for the Level 1 surfers, we use the soft tops for the first days, before we can call yourself an advanced beginner and the instructor decides for you the hard tops. For level 2 sand above, there is a range of hard tops which we can select from.

If you’re having your first go at surfing or have had a lesson or two in the past, we will start from the basics. 

The basics include introduction to the surf board, the surfing spot, a warm up, a dry session on the beach explaining the basics of the pop up and safety techniques, and then going to catch the first waves in our sub-tropical waters.

Our home spots are Arrifana, Monte Clerigo and Amoreira. Surf is always depending on your level, wave & wind conditions. According to that, the surf instructor will check conditions and accordingly bring you to the best spot for you. There is the possibility in choosing going to spots further away, covering the transport to there.

Your instructor brings you to the surf spot which brings the best conditions. After an effective warm up your surf coach will show you teach you and help you to improve your techniques. Have the time of your life! After approx. 2-2,5 hours (driving included) the surf session is over. You collect your board and the equipment and leave the beach together with your group to go back to the Surf & Yoga Camp. 

You definitely have a special connection with your own board, therefore if it’s convenient for you, we suggest that you bring your own board.

Yes, the surf board is included in the lesson for the duration of the surf class. We also provide you with the wet suit.
