Program

What is a surf camp?

When one thinks of a surf camp, what comes to mind besides perfect waves every day? Great accommodations or apartments and effective surf lessons! Ocean has got the waves and Alex Surf School has a great place for you to stay. It is a super-combo! Surf lessons suit everyone’s needs.

If you are a beginner, they will give you step-by-step guidance to surfing from understanding the tides and the waves to safety rules in the water and surf etiquette. If you are an intermediate or an advanced surfer wanting to perfect the technique, they will give you real tips that work. During this camp, you will join 10 days of surfing with two surf lessons per day (two hours each).

Surfboards

Alex Surf School has a wide range of surfboards from soft boards of all shapes and sizes to epoxy and fiberglass. Their range of boards goes from beginning to advanced levels. All surf lessons include the equipment. However, if you want to surf on your own, renting is a perfect option. A form of ID is required for deposit. Driver's license and passport are all accepted.

Location

Peniche

Peniche is home to the world-renowned Supertubos, the beach that hosts the most prestigious competitions in all waves-related sports. You can surf, kite, bodyboard, and windsurf here or watch the pros participating in spectacular events. From here, you can also visit The Berlengas archipelago. It is an exciting boat trip to a group of small islands once visited by Romans, Vikings, Muslims, and pirates from England and France. The coastline of Peniche is magnificent with its rocks and cliffs and the endless Atlantic Ocean.

In a nutshell, Peniche is the Portuguese (and European for that matter) surf capital. A peninsula where you can surf pretty much every single day of the year due to the privileged geography of the region, making for consistent conditions to learn or improve your surfing. The thing is it is so much more than just surfing. Great food, nightlife, history, scuba diving, people, golf courses, even the exotic island of Berlenga (a beautiful protected nature reserve where you can stay overnight is just a short ferryboat ride away). All of it at reasonable prices for a developed country, known for its great weather, fish and relaxed people.

Surf spots

Finding secret spots is a part of the surfing experience and probably one of the best adventures. The guiding service of Alex Surf School will take you to the right spot, at the right time with any combination of swell, tide, and wind. They are committed to sharing their expert knowledge of the local surfing conditions to help you learn and progress.

a. Belgas

Next to Almagreira, just up north. No crowds and several nice breaks. Best with S and SE winds and N swells. Ideal for all levels of surfers.

b. Almagreira

A long shoreline to the north of Lagido. Several surf breaks working when the waves are smaller in Baleal. It is a left and a right wave with a sand bottom. Best with S or SE winds and northern swells. Ideal for all levels of surfers.

c. Lagido

Left-hand reef break. Long, extremely maneuverable wave, breaking on a coral reef. Best with S, SW, and SE wind and north swells. It is ideal for intermediate and advanced surfers.

d. The Bay

Dozens of breaks, you just have to choose the one you like the most. Works best with NW winds and NW swells in Cantinho (just next to the surf school) or with S, SW, or SE winds and N or NW swells in the middle of the bay. Ideal for all levels of surfers.

e. Molhe Leste

Fast and tubular. Right-handed break, next to a pier on a sand bottom. It needs a lot of swell to work. Best with N or NW winds and SW swells. Ideal for intermediate and advanced surfers.

f. Supertubos

For many, the best wave in Portugal and one of the best in Europe. A world-class spot, and stage for WCT events. Fast and tubular waves breaking perfectly on a sandbank. It works best with SW swells and N, NE, or NW winds. Amazing barrels, and perfect for aerial maneuvers.

g. Consolação

Rock bottom wave. Excellent right-hander, for intermediate and advanced surfers. Best with NW winds and S and SW swells.
