Learn to Surf Portugal - Beginner surf camp

Join us in our awesome camp in Ericeira, and learn to surf with the accommodation of your liking.

A typical day

    • The early risers may want to fit in a yoga session or enjoy the sunrise before breakfast, while others may prefer to go straight to the breakfast buffet. We’ll do a run-through of the day while the coffee is kicking in and then drive to where we’re surfing. The instructors will have a briefing and warm up before we surf as much as we can and finish with a summary of the lesson. After hours in the water you’re tired, the level of endorphins are high and it’s time for lunch. After this you’ll have time to do whatever you like; you may want to surf some more on your own, chill in the sun, go into town, or even take a trip to Lisbon.

Who is Level 1 for?

      • This course is for you that have never surfed before, or that haven’t surfed in a while and want to go through the basics one more time. We’ll give you a fun and encouraging introduction to surfing, and share the stoke when you catch your very first waves. In groups of 6 surfers per instructor we’ll make sure that you develop your skills in line with your level and that you’ll catch as many waves possible. It’s all about having fun together with the other surfers.

No, you’ll need to make your own way there, but we can pick you up at the airport ✌🏻
Are there any stand-by spots or unlisted beds available?
You are always welcome in our home, but if there are no spots available on the website it means we are completely full that week.

The best – and only – way to get a single room is to book a double room with 1 pax. (Yes, this means you will have to pay for the entire double room)
