First Surfing Course

Your first taste of surfing

Our first surfing course is an introduction to surfing! Think of it like a holiday in the Algarve, with surfing, education and great times with new friends!

This course is a stepping stone into the world of surfing, specifically designed for the person who would like to 'try it out' or get some 'awesome dining room pictures!' 

You'll leave this course with a solid understanding of surfing and up to 5 proper days of surf under your belt. All we ask is you come prepared, ready to learn and stoked to be there! 


What can you expect?

This 5 day course is a light introduction to surfing, that is great to take part in if you're considering starting surfing or not sure if it's for you. Our focus during the course is to arm you with the basic knowledge of surfing and experience to do it safely and with a lot of fun.

Dedicated instruction with a maximum student to instructor ratio of 5:1, mean you will have plenty of one-on-one time.

After the course is finished, you'll have the ability to proceed alone in your surfing career, but always taking it serious and everything in it's own time.

 Topics include:
​-  Evaluation of the Conditions
-  Gear knowledge 
-  Hazards and how to deal with them
-  Understanding weather
-  Safety and ethic rules of surfing
​-  and much, much more!

If you have any questions, then please don't hesitate to contact us!

What else?

Each retreat will be unique and unforgettable. We will be experiencing Portugal south coast in the most authentic way, exactly like how it was for me growing up here.

Everyday after surfing I'll take you on little tours around the region, to explore the traditional villages, swim and relax in secret hidden beaches, watch the sun set in espectacular locations, or the moon rise, and to finish the day nourishing ourselfs with delicious food in a local restaurant.
