CAMP CHARAKTER



Welcome to Shanti Surfcamp   Come and learn how to align with the waves of life through surfing! The attitude we have while surfing a wave, is the attitude we need in every moment of life. Surfing is a physical practice which teaches us the posture that fosters the attitude of being always present and conscious. This attitude of oneself is fundamental for our daily life. For this reason we consider surfing as a tool of great importance to the evolution of consciousness of the human being in the New World. The proximity to the best surfing beaches in Europe has led us to open a surfcamp in association with our partners of MarocSurfCamp. Available for surfers of all levels, we offer daily practice of yoga and healthy food. 



CAMP OPERATOR



After several travels throughout the 5 continents and contact with several philosophies and life styles, Eduardo Buzaglo and Carolina Mantero have acquired a set of techniques that they consider basic for the alignment of the human being in the New World, in the current moment.

Contacts and studies have been developed within the knowledge of Ayurveda, Macrobiotic Philosophy and the Law of Time. Our experience over the past 10 years in Casa Shanti, Penedo do Lexim, which is a place of knowledge itself, has made us want to share our experience.

Maria and Mohcine founded «Marocsurfcamp» in Morocco 6 years ago. In July 2009, they decided to share their surfing experience in Portugal, Maria’s country of birth, together with Carolina and Eduardo.

All together, we decided to create a surfcamp, not only for surfing, but also to create a project of harmony and tuning with your inner self.
