Come and join Toto Schulz and the whole ASA Algarve Sea Adventures team in this fun and exhilarating surf camp in the gorgeous beach paradise of Portugal. Let the experts bring you and your little ones into contact with this exciting sport in a safe and happy environment. Each child will be highly provided with individual attention and they will be given a time packed with excitement, joy, and new experiences. Your family will be in good hands in this awesome and wonderful adventure!
You will be accommodated in a farmhouse-style apartment. The apartments are self-catering and, for this reason, they have been fully-equipped to meet your needs. You are welcome to use the television, microwave, gas cooker, electric oven, or fireplace and enjoy the nice view of the Luz valley on your terrace or balcony. There are two kinds of apartments, T1 for two people and T2 for four people. Optional two extra persons can also sleep in the lounge on the couches.
In your backyard, you will find a huge swimming pool surrounded by a big garden to relax. There is also a children’s playground and table tennis equipment. You and your neighbors can organize barbecue evenings as there is a special area for grilling and hanging out. Also, with the free parking spaces, you don’t have to worry about parking your car. The location is just perfect as it is a short walk to the beach, cafes, restaurants, bars, supermarkets, and organic stores.
If you have been wanting your children to try surfing, then you have certainly come to the right place and found the experts in the field. Kids under the age of 12 need a little more supervision. To be able to provide this important individual attention, the ASA team operates in small groups with one surf instructor for every four kids.
Children also have the ability to learn surfing faster, easier, and very differently from adults. Therefore, the lessons are especially designed with children in mind. Thanks to the one-is-to-six ratio and the additional nanny service on the beach, the ASA team is able to create a safe and caring atmosphere while teaching surfing.
Each of the three surfing sessions will consist of about two hours of water time, including coaching and lessons. The surf coaches and nanny on the beach are all fully-qualified and friendly. You will be taken to the spots at the diverse beaches on the South and West coast, and pick up and drop off at your accommodation or meeting point is arranged everyday. A surfboard, wet-suit, and changing poncho will be provided for you and your little ones during lesson hours as part of the retreat package.
Plan your personal day as you wish as you are in a self-catering apartment so wake up at 7 or at 11. Cafés, restaurants and supermarkets are all close by.
If you like, you can also book climbing lessons, yoga, and massages.
Thorsten, fondly called Toto by his peers and students, will be in charge of your daily adrenaline schedule. His goal is to enlarge your activity desire each day and for you to have tons of fun. He and his team administer the dose of action according to your level. If you have any doubts about your recipe of activity, you can rest assure that you are welcome to let him know anytime.
This retreat will take place in the Quinta Formosinho apartment complex in Praia da Luz, an administrative subdivision located about six kilometers from the municipality of Lagos in the Algarve region of Portugal. It is a renovated farmhouse exuding an authentic Algarve feel with its green surroundings, pool, spacious garden, children’s playground, table tennis provision, and barbecue area. It takes just seven minutes of walking to the beach and to the city center.

The accommodation type for this retreat is self-catering, so a fully-equipped kitchen is provided for you in the apartment. You can cook whatever dishes you want for your family during your stay and once within that week, ASA Algarve Sea Adventures will host a lovely reunion barbecue for you. Also, for days that you probably don't feel like cooking, cafes and restaurants are just walking distance from Quinta Formosinho.
If you're feeling adventurous, ASA Algarve Sea Adventures can help you organize additional activities other than surfing for an additional cost. Other things that you can possibly do during this retreat include rock climbing, mountain biking, yoga, pilates, and deep water soloing. Of course, the most important thing is to enjoy each and every day of this trip. Relax your mind, stop thinking, take a swim, enjoy the garden and the view of the valley, unwind, and rejuvenate.
