ABOUT THE SURF CAMP


LOCATION AND SURF CONDITIONS

There are more than 20 surf beaches with white sand divided by piers in a radius of 30 kilometers. They offer an excellent quality of waves, suited both for absolute beginners and also pro surfers. These options enable our experienced surf coaches to find surf spots where you hardly have to share the waves with other surfers, even during peak season. Since always takes a while to learn how local breaks with the tides, wind, swell directions and sizes, we take you to the best spot.

MORE INFO, HOW TO GET THERE & FAQ


 SURF CONDITIONS
Probably the least talked about region of Portugal amongst surfers. Above all, the northern provinces of Minho and Douro feature a super consistent and varied stretch of coastline. With the ancient town of Porto sitting in the heart of the region, there’s also plenty to do and see when it’s flat.

The Port region, in the north of Portugal, is still very unexplored under the surfering point. Likewise its potential for waves is not to be underestimated. Thanks to the powerful swells of the North Atlantic, which hit on these coasts throughout the year. We find in this region a very high number of high-quality beach breaks and pier waves with very high frequency. Waves for all levels, from the beginner as well to the most intrepid waves hunters. You can easily find yourself surfing a peak alone or with your friends. Surely, the Portuguese coast has the highest frequency of waves throughout Europe, even in summer the swells are frequent. Indeed quality waves insured!
