We stayed in the surf camp for three weeks in June 2018. This was a first time surfing experience for both of us, we went from falling every time we would try to stand up - to starting to catch green waves by ourselves. We had the help and support of Flavio and Chris during the first two weeks and Titi in the final week. All three of them are amazing teachers, pushing you when necessary, giving tips in and outside of the water and always cracking a joke and keeping the mood light. The surf instructors will always look for the best conditions to surf for all levels. We did not only surf at the home beach of São Julião, but also got to travel around the area and surf other magnificent beaches of Portugal. There is no doubt that the coaches will analyse the forecasts and will take you to the perfect spot at the perfect time! The camp has everything that you’d wish for! Spacious garden with hammocks, slacklines, small volleyball net, ping pong table, not to mention the pool area which is perfect for after surf relaxation. Inside – pool table, indo board, books, a tv with impressive collection of surfing movies and documentaries, and a community fridge full of drinks and ice cream you can buy at a very reasonable price! All making a perfect setting for socialising and getting to know other guests and the crew. In addition to aforementioned activities, there will be something planned almost every night that you can (and you should!) take part in – camp tournaments, movie nights, dinners in the city and BBQs to mention a few. As well as tours through Ericeira or must see places around. Thus, a relaxed yet active leisure time is guaranteed! The camp is very tidy, everything (including the rooms) are cleaned on a daily basis. Amazing breakfast is served everyday and recently exciting new breakfast menu was launched. This review would not be complete without mentioning Kathy’s superb cooking skills! At an extra cost the camp offers Monday dinners and the BBQ on Friday which was very lovely. The guests and the crew were all very friendly and we definitely felt like at home in no time. However, it is worth mentioning that the absolute majority of the staff and guests are German-speaking. Neither of us knows German (although we did pick up some words at the camp), hence at times it was difficult to get involved, especially during group activities. it wasn’t that big of an issue for us, and we still had a great time there, however, it is something to consider if you don't speak the language and/or are looking for an international experience. Overall, if you are looking for a relaxed holiday where you can zone out and forget about all your worries, lose yourself in the hot sun and the Atlantic ocean waves, this is the place to go! We did not know what to expect when we first came but we expect to be back soon, Akvile and Giedre…
Everything was perfect. The house is really clean and comfortable. The hosts are really friendly and kind. The garden has a big pool and many places to relax. I will surely come back to this place !!! :)
To describe my vacation in Portugal surf camp: one week of great surfing with experience instructors include sunset surfing! About the camp: really nice people, helpful and supporting stuff! I enjoyed it very much! Looking forward to book my next trip.
Simply the best surfcamp you could go to in Ericeira! 1 month full of surfing at sao juliao (5 min with the car), relaxing at the pool, party in ericeira, great breakfast every morning and of course great people.
Stayed at the camp late october. Didn't trust the pictures but was not disappointed at arrival. Everything was clean and our double room was big enough. Didn't spend too much time there anyway as there was always something to do. Practice the slackline, ride the wale in the pool or prepare dinner together. Garden was nice for hanging out there after an exhausting surf lesson. Beach was within 2 min by car. Less people there and waves ideal for beginners. Can fully recommend to go there!
