A Day at the Surfcamp


A typical surf camp day starts around nine with a filling breakfast, Yes, I know, with a vegan option!. With your “fuel tank” needle displaying full, you will be ready and excited to meet the challenges of yet another surfing day.
You will have some time to get ready, and by ten or so, we will transfer you to your surfing beach for the day. Our default surfing beach is Amado, but we can take you to another beach if the condition is not good.

Breakfast at the amado surf camp


Once on your surfing beach for the day, we will provide you with your surfing equipment during lesson time: a surfboard and a wetsuit. You will do the surf lesson with other clients of similar surfing ability: Beginner, intermediate or advanced. Trust your instructor’s judgment on this, and you will optimize your learning curve.

After the morning surfing session, you’ll have a break of at least one hour. You will rest and have the opportunity to drink and eat some food you brought with you or a snack in the bars. Recovered and refueled, you will be ready for the afternoon session. All in all, you will enjoy three hours of net surf lesson time per day.

After the surf, we stay a little longer on the beach or on a bar terrace having a drink while looking at the waves, it’s so nice to just chill out after surfing!. At around 5.30 or 6 pm we will drive you back to the surfcamp.

Chillout time around sunset after the surf lesson


Your evening dining options: Prepare your food in a fully equipped kitchen, have dinner in a restaurant, once a week we have a barbecue night in one of our surf camps, then we go to hit the night bars.

Evening in the surf camp


Sagres has a cool nightlife scene, about 5 bars are next to each other within walking distance from both our surf camps. Some days there is a band with live music. Carrapateira is quieter but has a couple of chill-out bars.

At night there always is something going on at the surf camp
