Come Surfing in the North of Portugal!

Northern Portugal offers some great surfing. Join us on for a surf camp or surfari and we’ll show you beaches where there are fantastic waves but no crowds. Our team knows all the best spots in the region around Porto so you can be sure of a great time. You can also try kitesurfing, windsurfing and other water and land sports. Porto itself is a vibrant, historic city well worth a visit and a great base for your holidays.

Porto Surf Camp

We now have surfcamps available whether you’d like to stay for a weekend, 4 days or a week or more. The camps include accommodation that is just 5 minutes drive from the beach, surfing lessons with a Portuguese Surf Federation accredited guide, transfers to and from Porto airport if required and between the beach and the hostel, surf gear, breakfast, a visit to Porto’s historic city centre, sightseeing tour and for week long stays a boat tour. The accommodation is in a cool, modern hostel where each room is decorated in the style of a local attraction and you can choose between a double or shared room. The hostel is located in the centre of Porto within easy reach of all attractions. Please contact us for a surfcamp brochure or to book a lesson.

The instructors are very experienced and will tailor the lessons to suit you and all equipment is provided. Children’s lessons are available.
