Peniche Surf Camp
Waking up everyday to surf perfect conditions. This is a reality in Peniche!
Widely recognised as the best and most consistent surf sport in Portugal, the peninsula of Peniche offers a north and south-facing coastline. The result is finest surfing conditions everyday regardless of the swell and wind direction.
In one hour drive from Lisbon airport you will find Peniche Surf Camp.
Around our surf base you can find a mix of long sandy bays and a couple of reef breaks.
Peniche Surf Camp Base has got an ocean view and is located 100 meters from 3 excellent waves to surf. In a 15 Km radius you have more than 20 waves to choose from, one of them being described as the best left hander in Portugal, Super Tubes.
The Surf school is based on our experience, you and the best materials available.
The school is open to people of all ages, skill levels and nationalities. You will be taught by highly qualified and experienced surfers and surf teachers who also are life guards.
Each week you will have 5 days of teaching with 2 surf sessions a day.
Everyday you will be on the search. Peniche has so many waves that it is possible to surf several surf spots on the same day. We just have to be on the right spot at the right time. At the same time you are surfing you are visiting different beaches. You'll never get bored.
In the evenings we do informal seminars, watch and comment on the video filmed during the day time classes.
You‘ll be given a surfboard and wetsuit best suited to you. Your classes include all the basics from learning how to deal with a wetsuit and laying on a board to surfing the green part of the wave. Then, according to your development, you may change to the advance group and learn other techniques. On Tuesday and Thursday all surf practice is filmed for later comment and discussion.
Our base is equiped with all the necessary tools for the travelling surfer. We have surf racks, outside showers, wetsuit hanging facilities, cloth washing machine, and plenty of space to enjoying the sun and the music. We also have a balcony from which you can check the surf in Cantinho da Baía and Prainha. The Surf Camp has excellent coverage for wi fi connectivity.
The concept, philosophy, and culture of any given Surf Camp has got to do with the proximity and socialization that the Surf Campers have with each other, so that the experiences and sensations related to surf can be maximized. Our lodgings try to promote this contact, this sheerness in a comfortable and relaxed way!
