Lessons are taught by expert instructors trained in teaching kids and adults of all abilities, beginners to advanced. The goal is to promote a safe and fun learning experience for all skaters, from the first steps to the most advanced skills.

All professional instructors of Bukubaki Surf School are passionate about helping their students find their own personal style and creatively express themselves.

Small groups sessions are offered to pay greater attention to individual progress and errors. At Bukubaki, they give you all the information you need to approach and practice surf safely, learning how to live the “water” element, discovering its dynamics, and learning to play with waves. High-quality equipment to ensure your success and safety is provided, as well as transport to the beach.

Take part in the bike tours to reach the ocean cliffs of the silver coast ecological reserve, with expert and passionate local guide, or go wild through woods and ocean cliffs, to reach unforgettable landscapes, drenched in the smell of earth, resin, and salty water.

Instructors

Marco Muraro
Marco is a soul surfer with 10 years of experience. He loves to compare surfing with "tango dance", a dance where the ocean gives the direction and the surfer just follows it, like in a dance. In addition to being a longboarder and single-fin lover, Marco is also a pool skater.
Guilherme Salvador
Guilherme Salav​a​dor is a surfer from Lisbon, with more than 20 years of experience in surfing. Ever since he can remember, he was spending all of his spare time surfing, or in other ways in touch with the ocean. Turning his passion into a career, he became a surf instructor, sharing his love of surfing and knowledge with other each student he takes into the ocean. He finds exceptional pleasure and gratitude in giving surf lessons to children, guiding them in their first contact with the sea, teaching them to respect the ocean and beaches and meanwhile awakening their ecological conscience.

Location

This retreat will take place in Atouguia da Baleia, Peniche, Portugal. Staying in Peniche will allow you the privilege of practicing extreme sports among pristine landscapes and medieval villages. One hour north of Lisbon, the Peniche area is a peninsula on the Atlantic Ocean, with perfect surfing conditions. Baleal has many good uncrowded surf spots and just a short drive away from the world famous surf spots in Peniche. Once an island of fishermen and whalers (the Baleal name comes from this ancient practice), it is now a surfing and body to boarding mecca.

There are more than 20 different surf spots suitable for both beginners and experienced surfers, for short and long boards, from beach breaks to point breaks. For the adventurous, the incredible waves at Supertubos, located on the beach just south of Peniche harbor, host the world surfing championship every year in October.

How to get there

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Lisbon Portela Airport (LIS) or Porto Airport (OPO). Transfer from and to these airports is available upon request.

Peniche is situated about 90 kilometers north of Lisbon. Porto is about 260 kilometers from Peniche, about three hours from Porto Airport (OPO).

Arrival by bus

You can get to Peniche in an hour and a half by bus from Lisbon, with two different companies. One is from Campo Grande Terminal (metro station Campo Grande), the other from Sete Rios (metro station Jardim Zoologico). Both terminals are located ten minutes by taxi from the airport, but also reachable by metro. A small shuttle Aerobus rounding every 40 minutes, is also connected with Sete Rios bus station.
