It was my second stay at Captain’s. this time with full house. despite of that it was not crowded or uncomfortable, on the contrary, I felt like visiting an old friend's house.I was picked up from Peniche bus station and straight away went surfing a nearby secret spot.
I could talk a lot but will try to focus on most important aspects: - free breakfast, served each day by supernice staff; free fruits and little chocolates available for guests; surf storage place; bikes that you can rent free of charge and explore nearby villages or simply checkout waves each morning (do not forget to lock the bike ;) and interesting people from all over the world that you can meet and party with.
I hooked up with surf camp from Slovakia, which uses Captain’s as their base; it was great as I could improve my surf skills with Ben and Peter- the instructors. We had one barbecue party with 2 guys playing guitars, one guy playing watering can as drums, and few others singing
Jack Johnson “Old train to breakdown” which was quite epic...
Visit Captain’s and you will not regret it! High five to Ze and Sabina and see you next time.
