Surf Special Week
26. september - 03.october 2020
Surf Special Week:
As it was a bit difficult this year to plan the surfing holiday and to decide if you want to go to the sea for surfing or not, we have planned a week with a full program for you. You will have the opportunity to spend a week with like-minded people where you will get a little more insight into the world of surfing and their lifestyle. Everybody is welcome and it doesn't matter which surf level you have. Together we will surf, eat, laugh and go on excursions.
We will visit a shaper, so you can see what it takes to make a surfboard. We will also learn how to repair a surfboard ourselves so that you can repair your own dings in the future.
As a reminder of this week, will be taken during the surf sessions, whether in the surf course or in the surf guiding and then analyzed in the group. You are of course allowed to take these photos home for memories. After the surf sessions there will be in total 3 surf-specific stretching session, so that our muscles can recover well after the surf.
In addition, various joint excursions are planned to explore the beautiful area in the southwest of Europe. For the evenings we have planned a barbecue with fire in the chill-area and good music, sunset watching from the highest mountain of the Algarve with following visit in a typical portuguese restaurant, as well as common meals in the surf villa. Living the dream! In addition, we undertake further excursions together, which we discuss spontaneously on site, where everyone who feels like it can join.
We are looking forward to a great week with you. The places are limited to a maximum of 14 people, so that we can enjoy a familiar and more personal atmosphere.

The southwest coast of Portugal, offers waves for every level. From beach breaks to point breaks, you can find everything here, and all this in close proximity to the surf villa. Depending on the conditions, you can choose from countless beaches on the west and south coast, making the southwest coast one of the best surfing areas in Europe. All these beaches can be reached with a maximum drive of half an hour. Here you can choose "suitable waves" according to your level and preferences. Due to the southern location, warm temperatures prevail here all year round, so that one can always surf.
There are three main beaches in the immediate vicinity: Monte Clerico, Amoreira and Arrifana, which is even considered a top spot in the region and is only a 5-10 minute walk from the villa.
All the surfing activities offered are carried out by a local surf school. The team is very knowledgeable and offers, in addition to a lot of experience, maximum safety, professionalism and quality. The equipment for the surf course also meets the highest quality standards!
Participants of the surf course can use the equipment on site (surfboard & wetsuit). Advanced surfers who participate in the surf guiding course can either rent the equipment from the camp or bring their own equipment.
The journey takes place independently. We offer a collective transfer on Saturday the 26.09. and bring you back to the airport in Faro on 03.10.
You can also fly to the airport in Lisbon, where there are several buses daily to Aljezur (10min. from the camp). From there we will pick you up.
During our Surf Special week the focus is on surfing. However, it is almost as important to us to introduce our guests to the culture and the unique nature of the area. In consideration of the surfing sessions, depending on the swell forecast and tide, there are therefore daily activities. These excursions are planned together directly on site, and of course nobody is forced to go along if he/she prefers to relax or surf independently. A half day trip is included in the package, should there be any costs for the other activities, these will be divided among the participants and charged on site. As many of the activities take place in nature, however, you do not have to reckon with large additional costs. And the trips with the vans are also included in the package.
