Nomad Surf Camps organizes probably the most Multi-national Surf Camps in Portugal. The Nomad Surf Camp (Lisbon) is located in Costa Caparica Beach.
Are you 18 to 21 Years old? We organise two weeks in August for young people your age.
We moved our operation only 100 meters from the beach and only 15 minutes from Lisbon International Airport. It is one of many vacation spots in central Portugal which is noted for its beauty and tourist possibilities.
A privileged location for a Surf camp near a very long sandy beach with mellow beach breaks perfect for beginners. It’s an idyllic place for the practice and especially learning to Surf during the summer. Our summer camp has been hosting young adults with ages of 18-21 years old from Russia, Italy, UK, France, Switzerland, Belgium, USA, Canada, Spain, and other countries over the years.
All activities are done in English, but staff also help in Portuguese, Spanish and French when needed. Accommodation in shared room organized by gender or full privacy in twin rooms. Big shared bathrooms with separate showers in a hostel that has a swimming pool, chill WiFi area, Surf Skate Ramp TV and dining rooms.
