Summary

ALOHA

Why LISBON SURF CAMP?

SURFINGhas been a focal part of my life for some 33 years. It has dared me to evolve as a human being and continues to do so every day.

The skills learnt in the water such as being alert and taking the right decisions in the moment, sensory mind and body coordination, timing, persistence and learning to flow, have served me daily, in and out of the water.

I am truly grateful for the opportunity to teach and pass on this knowledge to others, witness and share in the ultimate fun and synch with nature surfing brings. It continuously enriches my life.“ 

~ Pedro Couto, European Master champ 2005, 2007. Surfschool Technical Director and Surf Camp Manager

Our mantra – DARE TO EVOLVE

ABOUT THE SURF CAMP


LOCATION AND SURF CONDITIONS
SURF CULTURE IN PORTUGAL It all started in the 1950s on longboards. Today Portugal is known as a classic top European surfing region. Open to swells from the northwest to southwest, Portugal is super consistent year-round offering therefore plenty of surf.
Very little, if any, Continental shelf exists to slow down incoming swells, so it is in a prime position to pick up anything the Atlantic Ocean can send its way.
During the summer months Portugal creates fun waves from the smallest ripples, to surf in the 4- to 6-foot range (1.2m – 1.8m); this is where many of the south-facing beach breaks tend to flourish.
From fall through Spring bigger waves grace the Portuguese shores while Winter storms send in consistent sweet winter swells 6- to 8-foot (1.8m – 2.5m)surf. 
Pedro Martins de Lima (photo above), a legendary waterman over 80 years old is considered the father of Surfing in Portugal. Apart from Surfing he has practiced, windsurfing, sailing, scuba diving including with Jacques Cousteau. In an interview with surfer.com for the occasion of his 80th birthday he mentioned that despite all his sporting passions, de Lima has no doubts : “I’ve been next to sharks, but a 5?metre wave is a thrilling experience”, he said when asked about his favored sport. Pedro Martins de Lima started bodysurfing in 1946, with a couple of Churchill fins. In 1959, “I got up, for the first time, on a surfboard”. Today he is still hitting the waters.
