Global Surf Camp & School Surf Camp in Portugal Program

Global Surf Camp & School offers the students all the quality, comfort, and safety that is necessary to practice surfing and bodyboarding, no matter how old they are. Everyone can offend the classes, from beginners who have never surfed to the surfer who wants to improve himself or feel safer while practicing.

Each surf instructor is monitoring a maximum of six to eight surfers to ensure maximum attention to each surfer. Being safe is a priority so the students will never be placed in dangerous situations. The instructors are well-experienced surfers who are all certified by the Portuguese Surf Federation, an organization that regulates surf schools, instructors, and championships. After signing up for a surf lesson, you will be covered by a sports insurance.

The surf lessons which have a duration of approximately one hour and thirty minutes will always be scheduled one day before the course starts. The lessons start with a warm-up and some stretching exercises. Afterwards, you continue with some theoretical instructions appropriate to the state of knowledge of each surfer before going into the water.


Praia da Areia Branca is a small village located at the Portuguese Silver Coast between Lourinhã and Peniche. Despite the fact that Praia da Areia Branca is a really small village, it has a well-balanced infrastructure. You can find bars, cafes, restaurants, two small grocery stores, a pharmacy, and an ATM. The surf center is located a few meters from the beach. You are always so close to watch the waves.

At the beach, you can find cafes, bars, and restaurants where you can watch the sunset or have some fun at night. You will also find many other services such as supermarkets, bakeries, surf shops, and everything you need for your day-to-day. For more specific needs such as banks or government identities, you can go to the town of Lourinhã.
