Summary

Customized holidays, shared emotions!

Holiday means to us a combination of action and relaxing, wellness and adrenaline, new cultures and still feeling at home. Doing it when you feel it, without pressure. Getting lost to find yourself again, as an individual or as part of a group.

The idea of "The Lodge" has grown over many years in the minds of a group of people whose centerpiece of life was traveling the world. All the things we have learned and loved by traveling we try to combine in "The Lodge". It took us 3 years to find the right location to realize all our ideas.

The idea was to create a location which gives everyone the possibility to stay individual and practice sports at their level without losing the possibility of being part of a group. We see the high value of the little holiday time people have nowadays.

Situated in an outdoor-sports lover's paradise, you find unique variety of outdoor sports to pick from in the same week, even in the same day! We offer you the highest possible degree of individuality and flexibility, while at the same time providing the set-up to share your daily highlights with like-minded people.

Only a happy mind can spread happiness. Join your sports with our Elements.

SURF COURSE AND ACTIVITIES


SURF COURSE DETAILS

Beginner classes
In our Beginner classes you will be safely introduced to the fascinating sport of surfing. Our experienced and certified instructors will guide you patiently through your first steps, from handling a surfboard, through catching your first waves, to standing up on the board and riding a wave to the shore. The practical part of the classes will be mixed up with theory units where you learn more about safety rules, the ocean, the waves, surf etiquette and so on. Furthermore, a video analysis where we film and analyze your surfing will help you to progress faster.

Highly motivated instructors, small groups, the right material and many beaches to choose from guarantee a steep learning curve while having the fun of a liftetime.

A typical Beginner course consists of 5 days with 2 sessions of 2 hrs per day. We recommend a minimum of 3 days (6 classes) in order to get familiar with the new sport. 1 day taster courses are offered every week.

Beginner classes at a glance:
- Certified and experienced instructors
- Small groups, Student - Instructor ratio max. 6:1
- 2 x 2 hrs per day
- Beginner friendly softtopboards in different sizes, quality wetsuits
- Dozens of beaches to choose from, transport to and from the best spot of the day
- Insurance during classes

Intermediate classes
This course aims at the surfer who has previously had 3-5 days of classes or more. You should know the basics like safety rules, how to choose and catch a whitewater wave, and the take-off technique. In the Intermediate classes our certified instructors will focus on your individual goals. No matter if you want to improve your take-off in the whitewater or are ready for the first attempts in the unbroken or "green" waves, our highly experienced instructors will be there to get you to the next level. Theory units and exercises on the beach like diving or turning techniques will round out the practice in the water, and our video analysis will help you to improve even faster.

Private and Advanced classes
This surf course aims at the surfer who already has some experience, who feels comfortable on the outside in small to medium sized waves, who knows the priority rules, is able to catch a "green" wave and ride it parallel. From our profound experience in surf teaching, we think that at this level private classes with a maximum of 3 students allow for much better progress, as it becomes so much more important to work on each surfer's individual errors and goals. Video analysis becomes very crucial at this level and will be done at least twice per week. In order to put your surfing to the next level, our certified and highly experienced instructors will analyze your surfing and sit down with you to define your goals for the duration of your course.

Private advanced classes consist of one intense 2 hr session per day. You are free to use our material and go for a second surf before or after classes.

MORE INFO, HOW TO GET THERE & FAQ


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

Our beaches
The extensive Praia Grande and its little sister, the scenic Praia Pequena with its steep cliffs are only a short walk from The Lodge. Great beaches for surfing, here you find little restaurantes, snackbars as well as a surfshop. Take a short bike ride or a 20 min walk and you get into Praia das Macas, a nice little beach with a little village that offers restaurantes, little grocery stores, bakeries and cafes.

Besides these more wellknown beaches the area also has some more hidden bays on offer, where even on a summer sunday you will hardly find any people, if you don't mind a little hike down the cliffs.

In a radius of 30km to the south/east (Cascais/ Lisbon) and north (Ericeira) you find dozens of more beaches, bays and reefs offering perfect conditions for all kinds of watersports.


 SURROUNDINGS / REGION

Characterization of surroundings/region

Sintra
15 min inland from The Lodge lies Sintra, an UNESCO World Heritage Site. This historic town has been a summer residence for the Portuguese Royal families from the 14th to the 20th century and thus there is several impressive royal buildings to visit. Dominating the city's  center you find the Palacio Nacional, with its two famous conic chimneys. On top of the Monte de Pena you can see thefantastic 19th century Palacio da Pena from as far away as Lisbon. Surrounded by a beautiful and exotic garden, this combination of Neo-Gothic, Neo-Manueline, Neo-Islamic and Neo-Renaissance architecture is a must-see and the view of the surrounding area will blow you away.

Cabo da Roca
Cabo da Roca, as part of the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park, marks the western most point of mainland Europe. Its impressive cliffs reach up to 140m above sea level and the stunning view over the Atlantic ocean gives a real end-of-the-world feeling. 16th century portuguese poet Luis de Camoes honored Cabo da Roca as the place "where the land ends and the sea begins".
Some hidden beaches and amazing tracks around the cliffs allow for your own little discoveries.

Sinta- Cascais Natural Park
 
The Natural Park of Sintra-Cascais, spreading out from the the mountains of Sintra to the beaches of Cascais, represents a unique diversity of landscape and without doubt the most breathtaking region in Portugal. It includes sanddunes, rugged coastline with high cliffs and sandy bays, dense forrests and calm lakes, with the majestic Serra de Sintra overlooking it all. The centuries old symbiosis of manmade Sintra and the surrounding nature has gained the whole area the status of UNESCO cultural heritage.
It is in its approx. 145 sqkm where most of our activities take place, and where you never stop to marvel at the countless historical and natural wonders.

Cascais / Estoril
The coastal towns of Cascais and Estoril are culturally and naturally rich and offer innumerous sight-seeing attractions. Great shopping, beaming nightlife and the Casino of Estoril, Europe's largest casino, add to the attractions of these twin cities in the Greater Lisbon subregion

Colares
Colares is a little traditional village a short bike ride from the camp. A nice place to have a coffee and enjoy its quiet charme. In our opinion it is one of the nicest small towns in the area where Portugal is still Portugal.
