Summary

The ElementFish surf camp is a truly unique place to surf and relax: far away from tourist crowds, our beach-side camp is situated right at the Atlantic ocean in the dunes of the Ofir nature park - about 30mins north of Porto.

Our home surf spot is right behind dune in front of our premises (less than 2mins walk). No crowds in the water, we usually have our spot to ourselves.

The northern part of Portugal offers perfect conditions for surfing all year round. The sandy beaches of our training beaches in Ofir and Viana do Castelo slowly brake the waves of the Atlantic and form them to clean, easy to start on waves on the sandy banks without dangerous currents.

Our surf instructors are all ISA licenced.

 

Our spacious premises invite you to relax and chill-out on our lovely bar, on one of the sofas and cushions on our huge terrace or on one of the sun chairs and hammocks in our huge garden.

Additionally we offer Yoga classes and physiotherapy massages.

 

Our kitchen crew prepares a rich, brunch-style breakfast, lunch packs and delicious two-course dinners every day; including our famous welcome BBQ and homemade stone-oven pizza.

We also cater for vegetarian needs on request.

Drinks and snacks are available at our bar.

 

If you wish to eat or go out , there are bars, restaurants  and a club in 10min walking distance from the camp.

 

Shuttle service from/to Porto airport (OPO).

Free wifi, free bike rental, table-tennis and more…

MORE INFO, HOW TO GET THERE & FAQ


SURF CONDITIONS
Breaks directly at the main spot and at nearby spots

Our home beach, right in front of our camp, is a sand break with several left- & right-handers. It holds up to around 6 feet.

Alternative spots are at the Ofir pier (10min walk on the beach) or at the pier in Viana do Castello  (15min by car); both can are also mainly right-handers beach-breaks and can hold bigger swells.

Varios other breaks are within in 15min by car.

 

Seasonal conditions

The northern part of Portugal offers perfect conditions for surfing all year round.

Swells in the pre-seasons from March until June can get pretty big, but are great to surf.

In the peak-season from June-August it's usualy very warm but can get a bit windy in the afternoons.

The late season (Sept-November) usually features warm water (up to 20 degree Celcius), few winds and consistent big swells.

 

Crowd factor and local people

Fortunately, our camp is far away from the crowds - we usually have our home spot to ourselves. Locals are nice.
