Program

With Dreamsea Surf Camp Portugal, you can be assured of safety and comfort in the water, this is down to the fact that they provide one instructor per eight students. The instructors will be in the water helping you out, so you will be able to take advantage of the personal attention the instructors will give you. Your instructor will also be the same all week long, meaning you will be able to forge a relationship that will help get the best out of your lessons!

Each surf lesson lasts 90 minutes, and you will receive a minimum of 10 hours per week normally one or two lessons per day, this makes Dreamsea Surf Camp the best option if you are really interested in learning how to surf. Of course Dreamsea Surf Camp has the best equipment, which you can use even after the surfing lessons, all for free.

The surfing program is divided in three levels:

We want you to enjoy and take advantage of the learning process, to improve and to rip the waves. That´s why we have divided our surfing program in three different levels. Please, be honest and realistic with your level when you are up to choose a program. Read carefully the prerequisites of our available levels and get the one that better matches your surf skills.

All levels welcome!

Level 0: The Basics

Get the feeling of ride small rolling and breaking waves on easy-to-follow steps. You will be losing your balance and falling off, enjoy the benefits of drinking salty water, and stand up again. We guarantee you will stand-up having fun and a lot of laughs.

Prerequisite

  • None, suitable for first-time surfers or those who surf a few times before and wish to get the right technique from the beginning in order to progress faster.

Level 1: The Patterns

Leaving the Nest: Get excited, challenge yourself, understand the waves and how it works, timing & take off and perform front and back side turns.

Prerequisite

  • Comfortable with the basics of surfing.
  • Able to catch, balance and stand regularly and comfortably on broken waves without assistance.
  • Able to catch the occasional green small waves if the conditions let us do it.

Level 2: The Stylish

I want to be independent! Join the line-up and surf other waves. It takes courage, it’s exhausting and exhilarating at the same time. An adrenaline shot.

Prerequisite

  • Good board control and balancing skills
  • Can perform front and back side turns
  • Timing and take off not consistent
  • Good fitness and swimming skills

When you want to have some break from the sea, Dreamsea Surf Camp Spain also offers the following great activities to make your surf camp much more fun, exciting, and memorable.

After a few days in the camp it’s time to see who has improved the most playing beach volley. Join the volley tournament and win fantastic prizes, good fun guaranteed!

Ping Pong Challenge

Now it is the turn of the Ping-Pong tournament! Show your skills with the table tennis bat in tough duels in the “arena” (sand).

Movie night

Once per week a movie at the amazing summer cinema will be shown, get a good place and enjoy our selection of movies.

Barbecue and Farewell Party

One day per week, usually on Fridays, a delicious barbecue organized because for most of you, the Friday night will be the last night in the surf camp, so it's time to say goodbye, (or rather, see you soon), to all the new good friends and this magical place, so let’s party and enjoy every single second of the last night.

Location

Praia da Galé is situated on the west coast of Portugal, near the town of Melides. Praia da Galé is one of the most beautiful beaches in Portugal, and also a great place to surf. Kilometers of virgin white sand beach, sunny weather, clean water, and good waves make this spot a magical place for everyone, and specially for surfers.

It's not by chance that Dreamsea has chosen this spot in order to open a surf camp in Portugal. The mid-west coast of Portugal is a perfect destination for surfing due to the constant swell, variety of waves, and great sunny weather all year long. It thrives with life, where young people from all over Europe come to enjoy the beach, the nature, the sun, the waves, the party, and the environment. It is definitely a perfect place to spend the summer holidays, where you will enjoy the sun, beaches, waves, sport, youth, beauties, surf, and especially the great environment.

Dreamsea Surf Camp Portugal is located in the campsite "Camping Galé”, which is located in a pine forest with a unique natural environment. Just 250 meters from the Surf Camp is “Praia de Galé” beach, a stunning beach with perfect waves, offering a perfect spot for surfing. If you are looking for nightlife and party, you can choose between the Campsite Pub or the Beach Bar where parties with DJ's are organized during the summer until sunrise.

Add three yoga lessons to your activity packet for just €30 per week.
