ABOUT THE SURF CAMP


LOCATION AND SURF CONDITIONS



The surf camp is located in the town center of a beach town a few minutes walk to the beach. It is close to great surf spots to learn and improve your surfing or even enjoy great surfing conditions if you are an advanced surfer. Ofir and Azurara are great beaches on the Atlantic North coast of Portugal to learn and improve your surfing, they are sandy beaches with beach breaks. Póvoa de Varzim and Aguçadoura are amazing for advanced surfers and are famous surfing spots for their left waves.



CAMP CHARACTER



The camp is setup in a great Guest House/Hostel just refurbished. It is for adults only (18+) but the groups coming in are usually between 20 and 35. The surf camp groups are small groups of 8/10 people which makes it better to learn to surf and to make friends. The surf camp is pretty relaxed so you can chill, read, listen to music, watch surf videos or even do some yoga. There are also great bars nearby to party if you feel like it. The main language at the surf camp is English, but we have people from everywhere. This surf camp is for young adults only, no families or pets are allowed.

MORE INFO, HOW TO GET THERE & FAQ


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

Main surfing beach is 200 m from the surf camp, lots of great spots around to surf. We take you to the best spot on a daily basis. All beaches for beginner and intermediate are sandy beaches with no rocks nor reef, very safe to learn.  

Seasonal conditions

In Portugal, the weather is great all year round and especially from May to October, when it is sunny and a deep blue sky and around 25oC on average. The water temperature is around 17-18 oC in the summer, you will feel warm in the water with the neoprene wetsuit. Bring a jacket for the nights as it can sometimes be a little bit windy as we are on the coast.

Crowd factor and local people

Portuguese people are very friendly and the locals are great, everyone is happy to show this beautiful country and share the waves. The beach where we teach you in not crowded and you will have the waves for yourselves most of the times.


SURROUNDINGS / REGION



Characterization of surroundings/region

The camp is based in a small beach city 30 mins from Porto. It is big enough to have everything one needs to have a great holiday but small enough to keep the traditional Portuguese charm.

Most commerce will speak English, being in the Euro zone the currency is the Euro with the cost of living being very affordable. We like to recommend having a full travel insurance with health cost covered just in case something happens.
