Surf better and make solid progress

      

Our methodology:

Multilingual and integrative surf camp

Introducing our innovative surf training program: learn faster, progress consistently.

We developed a technical model which we believe will help you to learn surfing faster and make progress in a consistent way.

As professional surf coaches we taught hundreds of students how to surf and we identified several common mistakes patterns that blocks one's progression at the sport.

For that matter we created and adapted specific on water and inland exercises for solving each one of those mistakes, which makes you feel already evoking in your first surf sessions. 

Our comprehensive 7-day program is offered in English, Portuguese, Spanish, and French, with a host fluent in German to ensure that everyone is welcomed.

Small groups for personalized guidance

Enjoy tailored lessons adaptable to individual skill levels and the prevailing wave conditions, ensuring an optimal learning experience in small groups of up to 12 participants per weekly program.

Our 
location

Esposende is a chill vibe town just 30 minutes away from the Porto airport. The main surfing beach, Ofir, is part of Northern Litoral Natural Park, an environmentally protected area with long sand dunes and all kinds of migratory birds. The surf spots around are some of the best to learn surfing in Portugal because they provide perfect and forgiving waves for beginner and intermediate surf lessons. Esposende is very close to other historical portuguese cities and you will be able to visit and experience some real portuguese culture and famous gastronomy in towns like Porto (35 min.), Braga (30 min.) and Viana do Castelo (20 min.). 

The Waves

Experience a couple of uncrowded beautiful waves during your stay.

Ofir

Our main beach, Ofir, is one of the best waves to learn surfing in Portugal, due to its mellow multiple peaks all along the beach. The jetty divides the beach on two sides: north and south - each one working with conditions so you'll be able to surf it almost with all tide's periods.

Estela and Aguçadoura

15 min. south stays Estela and Aguçadoura - a long stretch of exposed beach breaks with amazing split peaks. We head there when the waves are small in Ofir or when we have good intermediate students that want a new challenge.

Beach in Cabedelo, Viana do Castelo

Cabedelo | Viana

20 minutes north lies one of the most famous and consistent breaks in Portugal! Surfers from all over the inland and from Galicia go surf Cabedelo when the swells are very big in the other beaches. The seawall provides a long righthander at low tide and shorter but still awesome lefthander on high tide. However, because the beach is very very long and protected by a long seawall we always find room to catch good waves there with our students. Other surf clubs from the area are usually very friendly and there's different take off zones on the waves suitable for the advanced and the beginner surfer as well.
