With a selection of beaches that face different direction, we receive all the swells generated by storms of Atlantic. Whatever the combination of wind and swell chances are very high that you catch your best waves every day. A broad sheltered bay between peninsulas of Peniche and Baleal is a perfect playground for beginners as well as experienced surfers. This is one of the most uncrowded stretches of the coast, and probably the easiest beginner surfing spot in the area. And with an incredible variety of other fantastic ocean spots to choose from, we always pick the right one for you to catch waves ideal for your comfort and experience level.  

We offer you an unforgettable experience, showing what surfing is all about.  

Taking safety very serious so we give our beginner classes at the beaches with a sandy bottom, we choose a spot taking our student’s surfing level into consideration, we only use safe, high quality soft top type surfboards for beginner classes and every student has his/her own sport insurance.

Our surf programs consist of personalized beach instruction, lesson in the water, professional surf photography and video analysis back at the camp. We specialize in fun and safety, and our instructors work with the students in small well-structured groups, with the student-to-instructor ratio never more than 6:1, to ensure a safe and productive learning environment. 

In order to obtain the best results, we recommend that you take at least 1 week of surf lessons. This includes 5 days of surfing Monday through Friday with 2 surf sessions per day. We offer group and private surf lessons for all levels. And if you want to surf more you can always book your private surf session on weekend.
