The advanced will surf reef and point breaks while beginners will enjoy smaller beach breaks in which they can improve without stress. After a day out at the beaches, relax in the cosy surfhouse, a comfortable Lagos Surf Camp at the heart of the city.


Surf Safari / Search Weeks

We will have selected weeks either side of summer whereby one LANDROVER heads out with only one target –  score the best waves possible.


Although we do our very best to separate surfers, intermediates and beginners whenever possible throughout the year sometimes it becomes a little challenging so these weeks are created for you as a “surfer” to aim for as an absolute guarantee you will have a dedicated driver and guide to go surf with for everyday of a specific week.


No extra charge on these weeks and loaded separately with the same amazing trademark lunches.

You will be filmed at least 3 times over the week and can view at your pleasure after the day. Basic pointers given and also a great way for us and yourself to grade yourselves on the IAMBANDS scales. 

On request we can bring a pro surf photographer on one of the days which is highly recommended.

Surf Spots

The south-western Algarve is a surfing destination unrivaled anywhere in Europe and unique in the way that it will give you a genuine taste of surfing lifestyle. Wave size and quality range from average to epic, with an assortment of reefs and beach breaks. The beauty of this corner of the world is due to the variety of its waves, which will suit everyone’s standards, and their constancy throughout the year – good waves break year round.


Waves break both on the Southern and Western coasts, always providing a surfing alternative according to the swell and within a maximum thirty minute drive. The surf itself is surrounded by wide and 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 forms part of the Natural Park. The access to the beaches is by dirt tracks twisting through a spectacular scenery.



Free yoga weeks at Lagos Surf Camp, check out the dates.


Relaxed style to appeal to both first timers and experienced – bringing all our crew together in a different environment. This is also adapted to the end-of-the-day work down after a great day of surfing.
