ABOUT THE SURF CAMP


LOCATION, SURFCONDITIONS AND CAMP CHARACTER

Peniche and Baleal have a long history of excellent surfing in Europe. Beautiful, remote beaches with constantly breaking, perfect waves allow you to surf here all year long. The unique location of the long peninsular offers a huge variety of different surf spots for all levels and kind of skills.

The picturesque fishing village is located 80 km north of Lisbon and attracts surfers to travel here not only because of the good surf conditions but also because of the mild climate, the delicious, traditional food, and its friendly locals.


CAMP OPERATOR

Max Reuter, German champion senior class 2001 and former member of the National Surf Team Germany, founded one of the most successful surf camps in Peniche / Portugal in 1996. 


From the beginning on, he has been supported by his experienced and well-coordinated team. The camp as it is today has been formed by Max' numerous surf experiences he has had all over the world as in Costa Rica or Indonesia.  

The focus of the team has always been on providing the guests with professional and customised high-quality support: comfortable apartments, top-quality surf gear, and surf spots for all levels. Having fun while learning the fascinating sport is certainly the main goal!

To provide excellent classes of high standard all our instructors have completed officially approved training courses at German or international Surfing Associations. All instructors in our team are not only experienced and expert surfers but also highly motivated to help improve your skills.

Besides the instructors our receptionists, bistro-waitresses and drivers are always ready to help you with your daily needs.

Apura Yoga Maximum Surfcamp

The Yoga
The yoga practice will be based on Vinyasa flow and Hatha yoga. Vinyasa flow combines the breath with the body’s natural ability for movement to create a flowing, dance like practice, which burns away toxins in the body and clears the mind. The Hatha yoga aspect of the practice is focused on the foundation of the asanas, or yogic postures, and will allow you to understand the dynamics of your body and to feel the proper alignment within each asana. We will be doing 2 sessions per day the first one being fairly vigorous in the morning to warm up the body and the second being a cooling down and restorative practice from the days surfing activities.   The Vinyasa flow will compliment your surfing ability through balance, coordination and strength and will leave you feeling fully energized and healthy afterward.   

The Surf
Every day Apura Yoga will take you to the best surfing beaches in the Peniche area. Your surf coaches are internationally licensed backed by years of experience. Each day our instructors introduce you to the basics of surfing, or help to improve your skills.
