Short Surf Break / Long Surfing Weekend at Bura Surfhouse Near Lagos, Portugal
Just a short flight from the dreary UK weather lies a slice of surfers paradise in Portugal! Picture waking up at Bura Surfhouse to a Portuguese sunrise, munching a hearty surfer’s breakfast, then hopping in our surf wagon to take you to the best break for the day. Add to this surfing both the south and west coasts of Portugal, refueling with a picnic lunch on the beach and then kicking back by our poolside bar with a post-surf lazy beer and you’ve got yourself a mini holiday!
A regular stop on the WSL tour, Portugal is not to be missed. If you’re polishing up on your surf skills, or trying for the first time (you’ll be standing in no time!), the balmy Portuguese weather means you’ll be sunning and surfing so you will return home having perfected your trim (and your tan!)
This offer is for a short duration surf camp but one that still packs all of the punch! Enjoy four nights at our magnificent Bura Surf House, a wonderful hostel offering dormitory accommodation and private rooms and three full days of surf instruction. Our instructors are fully qualified and time served and have lots of experience working with surfers of all levels, from first timers, right through to seasoned pros! You will get all of the attention that you need to progress and for better surfers, our instructors can serve more as guides, who will introduce you to the best of the local spots and provide tips and advice for riding the spots! In all cases, any equipment that you didn’t bring from home can be provided at no extra cost.
Conveniently located just a 10 minute walk from Lagos old town, you get to enjoy the great beaches and nightlife Lagos has to offer, but with the emphasis on getting away from the crowded streets and just taking the time out to lie in a hammock by the pool – something you won’t find in any other hostel in Lagos!
There are a mix of shared dorms for 4, 6 or 8 people as well as one ensuite apartment. All rooms are super clean, spacious, and comfortable and all linen and towels are included. We’ve got a rooftop terrace, a range of rooms, a big old kitchen and open plan sitting room with comfy sofas to unwind with a surf film. Take a dip in our outdoor pool or while away the evening at our poolside bar (serving 1€ beers!). Some of the highlights of the Bura Surfhouse take place at the pool bar, where you can enjoy a cold beer, one of our inventive (but always refreshing) ‘cocktails of the week’, great food and the chance to get to know the staff and your fellow guests. We love getting to know all of you and hope you will feel at home with us. Our bar is a chilled out environment to enjoy a few drinks with new friends after a day getting exhausted in the surf or just lying in the sun. It shuts each evening at 10.30pm when the party shifts into town so we can respect our neighbours and those who are getting up early.
We also have a kitchen where breakfast (always included) is served every morning including our famous Bura banana pancakes, and you can prepare your own food.
With some of Europe’s best surf on our doorstep, Bura Surfhouse is the ideal spot for a long weekend break to access the waves so why not join us to find out for yourself?
