One Day Surf Lesson, Beautiful Spot, Split Class, Two Sessions, Certified Coach
The Algarve’s ‘Costa Vicentina’ is one of the most beautiful coastal stretches in Europe. With many incredible beaches, each offering unique breaks, it is a very desired location for surfers from around the globe. The west and south facing coasts of the Algarve allow spots to work under every swell and wind condition so you can easily choose the beach that is best suited to the conditions. With such a great variety of waves you have plenty of options to choose from giving you a greater chance of finding the perfect wave for your level.
Boa Onda offers the chance to learn how to surf or bodyboard safely and efficiently. Boost your skills with our experienced, certified coaches. Boa Onda surf school group classes are primarily in Monte Clérigo beach during high season (Jul, Aug, Sep) and in Arrifana beach outside of high season.
Arrifana beach is known as the “jewel” of Aljezur and lies within a protected bay surrounded by steep cliffs. The surf in Arrifana is best when the wind blows from north to east and one of the great advantages of this spot is that it works consistently throughout autumn, winter, spring and beginning of summer and is a solid place to learn how to surf.
Monte Clérigo is also a great beach! The surf in Monte Clérigo can get really good but unlike Arrifana beach, Monte Clérigo is not protected from the wind and big swells and this causes the sand banks to constantly move and makes rips and currents more frequent and less predictable. Shifting sand banks allow different parts of the beach to work under different swell conditions. The waves generally pack some punch and can be quite hollow. During the smaller summer months Monte Clérigo beach can guarantee that there is always surf. It’s very rare to see it flat!
Surf and bodyboard lessons with us are run in small groups that guarantee personal attention. On beginner’s first lessons, we always provide instruction on how to take on the white water and learn how to stand up. For more experienced surfers, we paddle out and correct those basic mistakes, you know how it goes; paddle, paddle, paddle. For advanced surfers wanting to learn tricks, we even teach how to read the wave. We will help you to improve your wave riding, regardless of your current level!
This offer is for a single day of instruction, lasting three hours but split over two sessions. It includes professional instruction, transport to and from the beach as well as equipment rental. So for a surfing lesson in a beautiful national park location, join us in Aljezur for your best ever surfing lesson!
