Surf holidays in Portugal

There are several reasons why surf holidays in Portugal are so awesome. Besides many different ways to prepare codfish dishes, Portugal will inspire you with it’s beautiful nature, rich and interesting history, great weather, busy nightlife and amazing surfing conditions for advanced surfers and newbies. If one of the objectives is to learn to surf or improve your level than join our surf school and we will teach you by applying our innovative step-by-step approach of teaching. You will be up and riding in no time! Just don’t forget to smile while you are riding the waves! The best time of the year for beginner surf lessons is in the summer. With small to medium waves, warm water and endless sunny days you cannot go wrong. At Surf2smile we have the most experienced and friendly surf coaches. Their main goal is to teach you surfing and bring a smile on your face. We provide you with proper explanation of surfing technique on a daily basis. Every student gets more than enough attention in order to improve as fast as possible. Our main surf spot is a consistent beach-break with great sandbank distribution to offer marvellous surfing conditions for beginner and intermediate surfers. There is always enough room to practice water-gliding activities whether on the green waves or whitewater. When conditions are better elsewhere we are quick to move to another spot, while always having wave quality versus crowd level in mind. To spice up your surf holidays in Portugal after sipping mango juice in the hammock, you might want to try yourself in surf yoga. This yoga version has...

Handcrafted Surfboard with funky design

New Handcrafted Surfboard with funky design for Spring sessions Finally!! The new handcrafted surfboard has arrived 🙂 So stoked! It has a great looking outline with slight single to double concave bottom. With its wider nose more volume is added to the front of the board for easier paddling and wave catching. Great for waves that have some push. Designed to be ridden in waist high to a bit over head waves. The idea for the board came when I was talking to our shaper Saquá, a skillful craftsman who shapes with determination and lots of love. He shapes all Surf2smile surfboards by hand one by one and he always has a great collection of new models at his factory/shaping room. And there was this surfboard in the corner of the factory that somehow got my attention. I picked it up and loved the outline straightaway. I always believed there is a special link between certain surfboards and the surfer. Sometimes half a minute is enough for that bond to be created when you know for sure that this surfboard in-particular will do magic in the water. So, to make this story short, my handcrafted surfboard was ready one month later and the shaper/artist put a nice funky design on top. Thank you!! 🙂 Can’t wait to try it out! All it needs now is some wax and then straight to the water!! Surf’s Up...

New beginings

Welcome to our new website! We are stoked to start the season 2015 with new website, new team members, new ideas and refreshed surf house! It is a whole new energy that we are sharing with you this year as we never stop improving and growing 🙂 but the essence remains the same : making life of our guests more fun and relaxed! It brings us so much joy when we see our guests smiling after catching their first wave! It brings us contentment when we notice tranquility of those staying at our surf house willing to spend their holidays with us. It all makes us realize we are doing something good for people. Because they all leave with something new in their inner pocket : happy memories of being part of the ocean, new friendship, relaxed spirit and encouraged to chase their dreams. This is why we love what we do. We are always open for your suggestions, because we care about your experience. So feel free to drop us a line anytime. Aloha, Surf2smile team    ...
