In our surf camp everything is about the surf! It is perfect for beginners as well as for advanced surfers.

You will be taught by our instructors 5 days a week for 3 hours a day at a surf spot according to your skills, usually Esmoriz.
Our head coach is a local and grew up here in Esmoriz, so he knows the surrounding surf spots very well. All surf instructors have an ISA, BSA, FPS (at least level 1) or an equivalent license, which also includes lifeguard and didactic training. Besides the certification, all surf instructors have many years of experience in teaching and surfing.
To be able to offer an intensive and closely supervised surf course, the surf groups consist of a maximum of 8 people. Twice a week we offer theory lessons which gives you the chance to practice the pop-up in the surfcamp. Here you will also learn how the oceans work and which weather conditions create the optimal waves for surfing. We provide you with high quality equipment during the surf course. Among about 50 surfboards, from softboards for beginners to mini-mal's, shortboards and longboards for advanced surfers, we will find the perfect equipment for you. We also offer experienced surfers a selection of fiberglass boards in different sizes. The equipment is available during the whole stay and you can use it even on days when there are no lessons.

If you want to surf for the first time or if you want to get a feeling for the surfboard and the ocean again after a long time, the beginner course is the right choice for you. Our instructors will help you master the first manoeuvres such as
Our job in the surf lessons is to encourage and challenge you in such a way that the fun of surfing is always a priority. We teach on softboards which are adjusted to your height and weight. In addition, you will learn about waves and surfing equipment in theory, so that you are well prepared to go surfing on your own after the surf lessons.

You have already taken part in surfing lessons, you are familiar with the basics and want to develop your surfing? Then the intermediate surf course is the right one for you. Depending on your level of proficiency and experience, our surf instructors will work with you on your surfing style and help you improve your surfing manoeuvres.

The aim is to help you to get along more smoothly in the line-up and in green waves and to make sure that you can make safe bottom and top turns in green waves. We are also working on making sure that you can surf the wave parallel after the turns. In the accompanying theory you will be taught some important surfing maneuvers, which you can later put into practice in the water.
