THE ACTIVITIES

Surfing in Algarve

 

The surf itself is surrounded by a breathtaking scenery, with steep reddish cliffs, wide sandy beaches and no real estate developments or seaside resorts in sight. The whole area is protected and part of the Costa Vicentina Natural Park. The access to the beaches is usually by dirt tracks twisting through a spectacular scenery. Wave size and quality range from average to epic, with an assortment of reefs and beach breaks.

 

The West Coast receives swells from the north and southeast. This coast has consistent waves throughout the year and a variety of point breaks, mostly sandy. The South Coast receives swells from the south and large swells from the west. This region is not only known for its natural beauty but also the quality, perfection and consistency of its waves in winter.

 

Some Famous Surf Spots

Praia do Amado (West)

Most famous surf spot. Large sandy beach with dunes ideal for beginners – this is were many surf schools do their teaching. Only holds up to two meters. Respect locals !

 

Carrapateira/Bordeira (West)

Adjacent to Praia do Amado. Splendid surf spot with sandy beach accessed through a lagoon surrounded by dunes. Perfect for beginners, but watch out for the undercurrent.

 

Arrifana (West)

North of Carrapateira, a scenic surf spot and beach showcased by a high cliff topped by a picturesque whitewashed village. Beach break, usually half the size of other west coast beaches – good when others are too big. To the right of the beach, you have a good reef break, good right, but it only breaks with at least 1.5 meter swell. Watch out for the “hamburger” or “Kangaroo” rock. Only for Kamikazes !

 

Sagres (West/South)

Europe’s southwestern most point, this peninsula is surrounded by the Atlantic to the south and the west, providing numerous surf spots and surfing options according to swell conditions. Respect locals !

 

Meia Praia (Lagos), Portimao and Faro (South Coast)

On the Algarve’s southern coast. Surf spots with good breaks offering a good alternative to the western coast when the swell is too big there, or when the SE wind (Levante) blows.

Surf Lessons

 

The camp offers surf packages including accommodation and courses for all levels, from complete beginners who want to learn the art of surfing, to intermediates who want to improve their technique. 

We offer our students the best technical surfing material available in the market as well as the best wetsuits from the prestigious brand Quiksilver.

 

The lessons will be adapted to your level and highly experienced surf coaches will make sure you reach your surfing goals! In summer we usually teach surf courses in Praia do Amado, and in winter many times we teach at Mareta Beach in Sagres. This is a good protected beach when the north west swells are huge and everywhere in too big.

LOCATION & GETTING HERE

Location

RAPOSEIRA, ALGARVE

 

Raposeira Surf Camp is probably one of the best surf camps in the Algarve. Its located in the Costa Vicentina Natural Park, situated in the quiet and historic village of Raposeira, 5 minutes by car from the town of Sagres. 15 minutes to Lagos.

 

The surfcamp is 5 minutes from the south coast beaches of Zavial, Ingrina and Barranco and 15 minutes from the west coast beaches of Tonel, Mareta, Cordoama and Castelejo, offering always good surfing conditions. Supermarket, bars, Pizzeria, and traditional restaurants within walking distance. 

 

Faro & Lagos

 

Algarve’s capital Faro enjoys a central location on the coast and the old town has many historical monuments, including a medieval wall. Further west, Lagos is a well known touristic destination on the banks of a river estuary and its old quarters are enclosed within 15th century walls. Also worth a visit is the little town of Monchique and its famous thermal spa, nestling in the Serra de Monchique mountain range, which highest point at nearly 1,000 meters enjoys splendid panoramic views across the Algarve to the Atlantic.

 

Sagres

 

Sagres lies at the western end of the Algarve, next to Cabo Sao Vicente. It was here that five centuries ago, Prince Henrique set up a school of navigation which has played a crucial role in the Portuguese discoveries.

 

The town has a magnificent fortress built in the 14th century with a giant 43 meters compass rose. Cabo Sao Vicente fortress is poised on high cliffs facing the Atlantic. It was built on the original Roman site of “Promontorium Sacrum” – or sacred promontory, as they believe the cape was the end of the world, being the southwestern-most point of Europe.

 

CLIMATE

 

 The Algarve has a Mediterranean climate, with hot dry sunny summers and mild winters. Due to its exposure on a peninsula, the region enjoys excellent swell and wind conditions year round for the practice of surf and kitesurf. Even in January, the coldest month of the year, Faro has an average maximum temperature of 16°C. In the summer, temperatures are generally hot, with a mean maximum temperature of 29°C.
