Location

Your surf camp will take place in Furadouro, Ovar, Portugal, just 30 kilometers from Porto by the coast. It is a picturesque seaside village nestled between endless beaches, the nature park of Maceda Pine Forest, and the Lagoon Ria de Aveiro. Just a short walk to the ocean with kilometers of pristine white sands, waves, and pine trees. Furadouro is a lively seaside village with a charming historic center. You will find superb local restaurants that serve Portuguese and international dishes for great prices. Cozy cafés, fancy beach bars, delicious ice cream parlors, and sparkling nightlife.

It is all just a stone’s throw away. The lodge is perfect for surfers as it is just a short walk to the spot Praia da Furadouro with uncrowded peaks and a great base for exploring excellent waves around. Within a stretch of 15 kilometers of coastline, there are more than 25 waves to be ripped. All year round, this location receives swells, pleasant water temperatures, and 300 days of sunshine. Surf for every level, from glassy peelers to powerful tubes, depending on swell and wind directions, there is always an option.

Porto

Porto is UNESCO's World Heritage and Best European Tourism Destination. Great news! Avoid traffic and parking troubles, just take off for your city adventure from the lodge. The train from Ovar brings you directly to the city center. Nightlife is epic. You will find friends for one night or even for a lifetime.

Aveiro

Aveiro is known as the Portuguese Venice and is a must-see in the region. Jump on a moliceiro and cross the river channels, watch the art nouveau houses, and try ovos moles. Do not leave without having experienced this special place.

Ovar

One of the best places to see Portuguese tiles and the nationwide famous carnival. Just behind the lodge.

Ria De Aveiro

In the Ovar Province, everything lives around these 47 kilometers of water, parallel to the sea. A network of canals and islands, its waters are home to flamingoes and heaps of rare bird species.

Churches of Válega and Cortegaça

True masterpieces of tile painting art and one of the most impressive churches in Portugal. At sunset they are particularly beautiful, bathed in sunlight. Golden temples that shine in fantastic multi-colors, framed by majestic palm trees.
