Beginner 6 Day Surf Camp At Pontoeste. ISA Qualified Instructor
Our school and guest house is located in the countryside just outside Veiros, a small village 50 kms south of Porto, and just 10 kms from Praia Da Torreira. We are right by the beautiful and tranquil Ria de Aveiro (Aveiro Lagoon), in the middle of the Atlantic coast. This 45 kilometer long lagoon is one of Europe's last remaining untouched coastal marshland.
Our ten year’s experience of teaching surfing to beginners has given us a solid understanding of the methodologies that work to get new surfers quickly to their feet and riding waves! Our instructors have been certified with PSF (Portuguese Surfing Federation) since 2007 and we work closely with a cafe bar at Praia da Torreira, where you can relax before or after your lessons, but the lessons are the main event!
We have to say it: Surfing is, for us, a blessing! It is about our relation with Nature, becoming part of the ocean and clearing our minds to live in the moment, but don’t be mistaken! Expect challenge and plenty of it, as well as hours of very hard work in exchange for brief moments of unforgettable surf and a truly uplifting spiritual experience.
Our qualifications and experience guarantee that all surfers will progress, from complete beginners to total veterans. Beginners will be given the technique and safety instruction that they need to stay safe in the water and jump up to their feet and better surfers will be introduced the the varied and challenging spots in the local area! This offer includes 18 hours of instruction over 6 days and includes equipment rental. Our boards and wet suits are also available for you to use to practice at your leisure. You will be transported to and from the surf spots, get full insurance, and also be invited to enjoy extra curricular activities such as SUP, yoga and pilates.
Accommodation is in our small but wonderful guest house, where a maximum of ten guests can enjoy great rest in either a small dormitory, or private rooms (for an additional fee). Along with the room, all guests are welcome to use the dining room, a kitchen with fridge, stove, microwave, kettle, dishes, freezer, the barbecue and our big garden with ping-pong, chill out & wifi areas, bikes and skateboards. If you enjoy gardening, you're also very welcome to use the lawnmower!
