Let us introduce you briefly to the way we run surf lessons here:


Monday to Friday, surf lessons take place at charming Vigia Beach, nestled just 200m away from our surf camp.


You will enjoy two surf sessions (≈ 3 h) daily with a 30min snack (or nap) break in between. The class schedules vary from day to day as they depend on ocean tides and weather conditions, but our team will always keep you updated.


Every surf lesson is composed in a way that enables joyful, step-by-step and easy-to-follow learning process. Even though each surf session is unique when it comes to feeling and content, there are core principles that form a solid basis for our surf teaching philosophy.


Safety First!


We will introduce you to essential safety and surf etiquette rules; ensure your physical and mental preparation for any kind of situations that may occur on water;


Tell you about favorable (and not) surf conditions and how to identify them; explain how to deal with surf equipment and make a surfboard your friend. In other words, we guarantee you receive all the critical knowledge and skills to surf safely.

Don´t drop the (theory) base!


What is the nature of waves and how do they differ? How does the ocean live (yes, it´s alive!) and behave? How do you climb and even stand up onto that surfboard?! What is the difference between “greens” and “foams” and soft and hard boards?

How do you paddle and turn? Basically, we will tell you everything we know (and even more!) about surfing, because surfing requires profound knowledge and understanding.

Surf Rental/Day

Practice makes surfers


At sunrise and sunset, at fast pace and in meditation-like mode, first on sand, then on water, you will practice all kind of exercises and techniques to master the art of surf, gradually and joyfully.


You will learn how to:

– prepare your body for surf session with a proper warm-up – enter the water in right place and right time.

Choose waves – paddle efficiently and manage breath – stand up on board – hold balance and turn and many more things (we just don´t like listing!).


Each surf session is, therefore, a balanced mix of theory, practice and rest.


What’s included:

  • Wetsuit
  • Surfboard
  • Transfers



Each with a special feel, both fun otherwise, skates and longboards are for your free use to ride those concrete waves. In case you seek some advice, our professional fellow skateboarder is happy to share with you few tricks and tips once a week.
