Whether you are traveling alone or with a group of friends, prefer privacy or constant company, option for surf or not, Cliff Surf Camp has holiday packages for various needs and budgets.
Cliff Surf Camp will introduce you to essential safety and surf etiquette rules, tell you about surf conditions and how to identify them, explain how to deal with surf equipment, and make a surfboard your friend. In other words, they guarantee you receive all the critical knowledge and skills to surf safely.
Surf lessons are held from Monday to Friday. You will enjoy a three-hour surf session daily with a small break. The class schedules vary from day to day as they depend on ocean tides and weather conditions, but the team will always keep you updated.
You will learn how to prepare your body for the surf session with a proper warm-up, enter the water in the right place and at the right time, choose waves and paddle efficiently and manage breath, stand up on board, hold the balance and many more things.
There might be days that surf conditions will not allow a three hours lesson (that's the down part of working with nature!). In these cases they will compensate on another day with a longer session or with two sessions, according to conditions. They look up the best spot for you to surf, from Santa Cruz to Peniche.
For surf pack bookings, they recommend to check in/out on Saturdays or Sundays. This way everyone can start the surf course on Monday, and continue all the way through the week until Friday without breaks. This also allows the video and photo correction to be held in the middle of the week (halfway of your progress).
During this surf camp, you will have a visit to a local boards shaper.
This surf camp will take place in Santa Cruz, Portugal.
