Surf Camp Pipa , in Praia De Pipa, Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil, brings together travellers from all over the world who can enjoy the great facilities and location .
Approximatly 150 metres to the main Street of Pipa Avenida Baia dos Golfinhos, where you will be able to find all the best bars, nightclubs and shopping.
Praia Central being approximately a 300 metre walk, makes the relaxed vibe extend all the way to the soft golden sands of Pipa´s world renowned beaches.
Enjoy a sunset drink on our terrace bar or kick back and relax in a hammock until nightfall when Pipa´s electric nightlife comes alive.
Coming from a travelling background we have tried to make as traveller friendly as possible with the facilities every modern day traveller needs.
Along with the rest of our facilities we focus mainly on surfing. Having many different types of board to rent, all different types of courses to do and even sand boarding at dusk.
Being a backpacker hostel and surf camp means we cater for all kinds of travellers and is our aim to share the passion we have for surfing with our guests and show them what surfing can do for everyone. Although surfing is increasing in popularity it is still dismissed by many, we hope to change that in our small way and also increase knowledge people have about the ocean and its waves.
We are very lucky here in Pipa to have both beginner and expert breaks giving our guests a wide Varity of waves.
The camp is a great place to meet other like minded surfers, make new friends and even paddle out together to new points.
Is there many other places in the world that have so many different types of break, or to be able to take off on a wave at sunrise carving with dolphins, or a place that turtles find sanctuary year round? Experience surfing with Surf Pipa and let's catch some waves together.
So please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have and we look forward to having you stay with us .

Not least, the area boasts the dune fields of Natal and the dazzling Guaraíras Lagoon (ideal for fishing, boating and canoe trips and the stage for a truly golden sunset).
If the nature does not charm you, the architecture, fashion, culture, art and pace of life certainly will.
Pipa at night is an attraction on its own: stylish bars; restaurants with the best in regional, national and international gastronomy; cafés; art galleries; and, a rich and varied artisan tradition.
