If it’s your first time in the water, beginners classes are run daily in small groups (max 8 people-1 instructor), a very good way to start if you want to approach your surf experience. Based on the weather and surf conditions lessons are held on different beaches. With an average length of 1.5 hours, all the equipment you need, a wetsuit and a surfboard, is provided for you.
Do you already have some experience and would like to improve? If you can ride smaller waves and you’re able to reach the line up by yourself , we also do run intermediate and advance surf classes for smaller groups (max 3 people-1 instructor). This classes are held in a wide variety of surf spots and they complement in water corrections with video analysis.

Surf spots in the area
The Costa Vincentian is a great location for surfing, mainly beach breaks, some river mouths but also point breaks and reefs are wishing 30 mins drive from us. Tourism and surfers have been increasing in the last couple of years but nothing compared with other areas of Portugal, like Peniche, Ericeira etc. We still find some empty line-ups with beautiful waves breaking. We have really mellow surf spots for the beginners such as Arrifana and Amoreira and more challenging waves like Val Figueiras and Canga for example.
To surf around here a car is needed and to have a good guide will help you to not waste your time going from a place to another checking conditions.
Sand banks positions combined with tides are making your choice crucial to have a great surf in our area.
