Surf trip to the west coast of Portugal
In the recent years, as the level of surfing improves, we have noticed a higher demand for a more personalized and authentic surf trip holidays. Our guests always loved surfing many different uncrowded surf spots, especially those unknown gems. Combine this with a professional surf coaching approach, daily video analysis of your surfing and you have a perfect chance to boost your surfing level on your one-week surf holiday.
It’s always great to buy and old VW bus and possibly convert it to a dream surf mobile. This way you’re able to explore the whole coastline, live the beach bump dream life, wait for the right tide while waiting for the surf, etc. At the same time, you might miss good surf because you’re not at the right place at the right time and honestly, not everyone has the time to do surf trips longer than one month.
Therefore, if you only have a week or two and desperately wish to go on a short surf trip, we have put together a great surf guiding program. We organize daily surf safaris to several spots along the coastline from Peniche to Santa Cruz. You will be surfing at the right place at the right time while making the most of your surf vacation.
If you add a professional surf coach, who takes you to the best surf spots for your level, gives you tips to improve, films your surfing and later on, analyses your rides and points out technique correction, it can hardly get better.
