SURF COURSE AND ACTIVITIES


SURF COURSE DETAILS

We made up a special Surf Course Program to help our students to learn the right technique and progress at a faster rate. It´s included 3 hours of lessons per day, dividing into two sessions of 1,5 hours. This will all depend on the conditions the ocean provides on the day. Our lessons are structured with a warm up, theoretical exercises on the beach and practical part in the water.
We suggest to start a Surf Course on Monday, so you can enjoy the full course, adapting from the beginning. Surf Courses are from Monday till Friday, and free surf on Saturday. Soft boards for beginners and hard boards for more intermediates / advanced surfers. We offer surf courses for all levels. You will learn more than with any other surf school as you will have much more attention from the instructor and a closer personal relation. Pick up at Sagres or Lagos may be organised aswell.



SURF MATERIALS

We offer surf materials:

Longboards, Mini mals, Fun boards, and Fish models. A Huge selection of short boards available. Firewire boards for rent. New Ripcurl wetsuits.

MORE INFO, HOW TO GET THERE & FAQ


 SURF CONDITIONS
Breaks directly at the main spot and at nearby spots

The West Coast receives swells from the north and northwest. With consistent waves all year round, breaking over sand breaks and a variety of point breaks. It’s a unique and protected stretch of coastline. (Odemira to Sagres is all Natural Park.) Major surfing destination for serious surfers around the world, as the powerful Atlantic swells are forming perfect waves. Quality of the waves can get from average till epic. During the winter the wave size can reach till 4-5 meters high. Best wind is from the south or no wind.
The South Coast receives swells from the south and large swells from the west. Perfect time for waves is winter time, when you can enjoy ideal surf conditions in the water and hot coffee on the beach.

Seasonal conditions

Summer season (from May till October) is with smaller waves. All the west coast is working, and each day our surf coaches choose the right spot for beginners and experienced surfers. Often it’s our home spot Vale Figueiras, due to its ability of picking up most of the swell.
Winter season (from November till April) brings bigger swells and makes the south coast pumping, opens up an entire new dimension. That’s the time for Surfaris, time to explore reef breaks and secret spots along the southern coast from Sagres till Lagos or Portimao. Many places are hard to reach without 4x4 Jeep and difficult to find without surf guides.
Water temperature is around 20 degrees in summer time and 15 degrees in winter. Temperature stays low because of Atlantic ocean currents and the north winds , but can change unpredictably to warmer or colder, not depending on season.


 SURROUNDINGS / REGION

Characterization of surroundings/region

Famous hiking track – Rota Vicentina – passes just behind the gates of the Surfcamp. Rota Vicentina is a route, that runs along Atlantic coast and includes 400 km of walking trails. (www.en.rotavicentina.com)

Closest beach – Praia da Vale Figueiras (just 2 km away) – one of the wildest and un-crowded beaches in the area, that provides great conditions for surfing.

Aljezur is 15 km away – closest point of civilization: pretty Portuguese town, with old moorish castle surrounded by whitewashed village.

South Coast of Algarve is a famous touristic destination. It is formed by a long stretch of fabulous beaches with crystal-clean water and impressive reddish cliffs. On the other hand all those towns, as Lagos, Portimao or Albufeira (which is called a Mini-Ibiza) offer unforgettable nightlife.

Lagos is Algarve´s Party capital with plenty of bars, inhabited by Aussies, Kiwis, Canadians and Americans bar hopping. For those young travelers that want to attend our surfcamp: do not worry - it is easy to get from the camp till Aljezur, Sagres or Lagos to spend a legendary night.
