"Uma confortável e divertida experiência "

O café da manhã e a organização na casa é fantástica, os instrutores de surf e yoga são muito responsáveis e atenciosos.

Great crew! I felt welcome from the second I was picked up from the train station. Or actually, since the first email contact. The instructors (surf and yoga) know what they are doing, are good and supportive!

The location is really quiet, just a short walk to stores and the beach!

The house is tidy, spacious and clean.

Good beds, I slept great, and I slept in a dorm / shared room.

Bathroom is fine.

Big choice for breakfast, they let you take some things for lunch on surf days.

All provided equipement for yoga and surf are excellent, I didn't miss anything.

"The best surf trip I’ve had so far!"

The Lodge is super clean, well maintained and equipped (there are kitchens, bathrooms, dinner tables and areas outside). You can also use a pool and a nearby tennis court.

Both, yoga and surf lessons have been great. The teachers gave helpful instructions and supported while challenging yourself.

I especially enjoyed the surfing! ♥️ The beach we went to had great waves and the instructors stayed out there with you until everyone was worn out (not just 2 hours as normally!). I have already told everyone there in person, but once again: I enjoyed every moment of my stay! Thank you very much!

"Fantastic surfcamp with yoga"

I have done a 3 day surf camp in Golden Waves. It has been wonderful. The surf instructors (Pedro, Ricky, Alex ...) and the Yoga teacher (Caterina) are all very good professionals and excellent people.

In addition, the breakfast is very good and very complete. Very good atmosphere, the perfect place to disconnect and reconnect with yourself.

"Surf & Yoga on stunning coastlines close to nature’s beauty"

A peaceful place with great people and teachers. We went surfing on different locations, no matter how many times I jumped and dived into the sea like a dolphin with or without out the board. It was fun! I am thankful to have met Jennifer, Pedro, Ricardo, Danny, Irene and Sergio that made our stay fantastic!

"Short Yoga Retreat in Ovar"

I’m pleased to say that I loved the yoga classes provided from Jennifer. It was beyond my expectations. The house is in a good location, confortable installations, amazing instructors, and closed to the town nearby the sea. Very looking forward to visit it again and have a go with the surfing classes

"Fantastic surf camp experience"

Really, really enjoyed my week-long stay at GWSL!

The facilities were very cosy and clean, from the communal kitchens and lounge areas to the bedroom (in my case a very spacious solo room with a private bathroom).

The breakfast bar was well-stocked and of good quality.

The staff were super friendly and really went out of their way to make everyone feel at home and just have a good time.

The 2 surf instructors were very competent and always made sure we'd go to a beach where conditions would be suitable for the group's skill level.

Overall the experience left nothing to be desired in my book. I would definitely recommend GWSL to anyone looking for a beginner-friendly surf camp in the Porto region.

"The Best Place "

The home itself was AMAZING and so beautiful along with the best breakfast before surfing. We met so many people and had the best time. It was such a great environment and the city itself is very inexpensive. Our instructors were Ricardo and Danny and they were also the best and always made you feel safe in the water. I HIGHLY recommend this place and suggest staying at least the full week!

"Amazing adventure "

Surfing, bonfires, group dinners, bioluminescent midnight ocean swims, karaoke and so much more made this trip a perfect adventure. Be open and free, and you’ll have a blast.

"First solo trip - an experience to remember"

As the title says, this was my first solo trip. I also had not tried surfing before my staying at the Lodge. Needless to say, I did not know what to expect.

Well, everything I found exceeded my expectations. I chose a private room and it was perfect, bathroom and kitchen got cleaned every morning during my stay. Breakfast was absolutely on point. Surf instructors were amazing, especially Ricardo. Even tho I had not bought the yoga package, I decided to try the evening class for a couple of days and it was very good - it helped a lot after a surfing day.

Last but not least, I met many interesting people from all over the world and eventually made some good friends.

Overall, really enjoyed this experience - if I could I would go back any day.

"The place to be!!!!"

Yoga & Surf is the best combo if you want to balance your Body, Mind & Soul. I feel like superwoman after 6 days and I will definitely come back. Excellent yoga & surf instructors. You will find positive vibes all around;-)

"Best holiday of my life"

Everything was so great - the atmosphere, the house and the surf. Gabriel is the sunshine of this house. I enjoyed it a lot and recommend to everyone! I learned a lot with Ricardo and Alex - both are great instructors. Cannot be more happy with this holiday. Yin yoga classes and free bike rental superseded my expectations.

"Beautiful location and amazing staff"

Gabriel and Riccardo were both unique and special in their own way. Also Alex and Veronica professional and lovely. We had so much fun and at the same time we felt looked after. People from all over the world made the environment friendly and varied with different ages, sex and origins. We absolutely loved that.

Surfing is a difficult sport so better to arrive fit and strong as the pace is quick and intense, we loved the challenge but next time we’ll arrive better prepared

"Amazing experience, amazing place, absolutely amazing people"

Everything was amazing. The surf instructors Alex, Ricardo and Pedro are great! They were really careful, I learned a lot from them and I felt always very safe even if it was my first surf experience. The surf lessons were really long and we stayed a lot in the water with no time pressure. I loved the yoga classes with Caterina and Veronica, the classes were all different from each other and from any other class I have ever had. The lodge was very clean and fully equipped with everything you may need. The whole environment was very chill and relaxing. I felt very lucky since I met a lot of very nice people and, even if I was travelling solo, I never felt alone. Obrigada por esta experiência maravilhosa!

"Excellent vacation"

The vibe at the Golden Waves Surf & Yoga Lodge is unique and everyone on the staff team and the owner Sergio were positive, helpful and made my stay really pleasant. The two surf instructors Ricardo and Pedro are simply excellent! Really skilled teachers, funny and they made sure that everyone surfing had a great time. The breakfast was great. I stayed for a week and could easily have stayed longer. Will definitely come back for more surfing and yoga. I highly recommend this place.

"Not what I expected"

The food was awesome and cheap in that area of Portugal. The rooms were clean and the house had a wonderful garden. The organisers will come and pick you up from Ovar station free of charge.

Instructors Pedro and Ricardo were AWESOME!

They make you believe you can do anything and with their help, you can! :)

The Lodge was very clean and tidy, the vibe is pleasant and chill. There was a lot of space to hangout or chill with other visitors. The lodge also have a pool and free bike rental!

We booked the 2 day surf and yoga and enjoyed every bit of it! The only thing we regret is not booking for a week or more, we won't repeat that mistake next time! :)

We highly recomend Golden waves surf&yoga lodge to anyone!

"Everything was great, but"

All in all my experience at Golden Waves was great! The place is beautiful and well taken care of, everything is very clean and organized, there are free bikes, the rooms and beds are very comfortable, and the yoga shala is really nice and the classes lead by Veronica were really, really good. She is a very good teacher who plans her classes carefully so that they are never the same and they are always fun and relaxing and exactly what you need after surf. Also, Veronica is really nice and she will help you with everything. The surf classes lead by Pedro were also really, really good. He is a great teacher who always helps everyone and has a positive contagious attitude.

"Genau das richtige for einen freien Kopf!"

Tolle Surf-Lehrer, sie sogar mangelnde Sonne und kaltes Wasser wett machen. Internationale Community, mit denen man auch abseits von Yoga und Surfing viel Spaß haben kann.

Herzliche Yoga-Lehrerinnen, die den perfekten Ausklang zum Surfen bieten.

Wirklich eine tolle Erfahrung :)

Le sessioni di yoga sono state stupende e Veronica dedica molta attenzione a tutti. La sala e le attrezzature sono ottime. La colazione buona. Gli istruttori di surf eccellenti e sempre vicini per aiutare (anche in mare).
