Welcome to Underdog Surf House!
Keeping this way of life and mixing it with surfing has convinced us that an experience here is one like you´ll never find anywhere else.
We are a bunch of people that have fallen in love with surfing and this area of Europe and we belive that this is definatly something remarkable to share with all of you!
LOCATION AND SURF CONDITIONS
Areia Branca is a small beach town 68 km north of Lisbon and 12 km south of Peniche (one of the most high quality surf arear in Europe. This town is a beutifull little beach arangement yet to be discovered by the rest of Europe. Its long sandy beaches extend for kilometers divided by subtle natural rock piles. The Areia Branca beaches provide us with optimal wave canditions for biginers and advaced surfers. Often unmarked beaches and othewise private settings here give us a fresh get away from the crowds found in the Peniche area.
The Underdog Body Glove Surf House is settled in Praia da Areia Branca, located in the "western central" part of Portugal with the beach only a five minute walk away. The house is our main attraction so be prepared to be surprised!
Our staff consists of surfhouse orientators and surf teachers. Most of the staff members are locals that know the area very well and that could indicate some good ideas for the time while you stay with us. We are happy to have the chance to work together with great people. At The Underdog Body Glove Surf House we try and maintain a good group of people so that the atmousfere is positive. Most of the staff members working at the Surf House have been friends for a very long time and when all together its real fun to spend our days!
We looked into making a surfhouse that is more luxuriouse that any common surf house. Our guests enjoy a spaciouse room with a counfortable bed and wooden floor that includes a varanda overseeing our private swiming pool or garden area. The surfhouse has a very open and spaciouse style to it that induces counfort and luxory. Enjoy a game of snooker or kicker in our game room or chill out in our living room area while you watch a surf video or listen to some music. Our biggest bedroom has its own private bathroom and walk in closet. Other bedrooms share the main bathroom that is spaciouse and has its own shower and jacuzi. Two extra showers in the shower room make sure there are no line-ups for taking a bath.
We have a washing machine ready just in case anyone needs to clean clothes.
Our swiming pool/barbeque area is one of the best parts of the surfhouse. Take a dive in the pool or lay back in one of the lazy chairs while enjoying the hot sun.
Also avalable at the surfhouse is the internet/chillout room in the attic. It has its own pateo overseeing the swimming pool and ocean in the backround.

SURROUNDINGS / REGION
Characterization of surroundings/region
Portugal is a beutifull and humble country located in south-west Europe and encountered in the Iberic Peninsula of the North Atlantic. Filled with optimal surf locations, warm climates, extravagant night life and historical land structures Portugal can definatly spark your interests in many ways. It is the most ocidental country in Europe and it has huge potencial for Surf here. Its surf life growing with roaring rate that leads us to think that its undicoverd and uncrowded situation wont last forever.
