Program

There will be five days of surf lessons with the surf gear included (wetsuit and surfboards). The camp offers different activities from beach games to yoga and, of course, surfing.

Surfing

They drive you to the best surfing spot for the surf lessons. You surf in a great surf spot perfect to learn or improve your surfing; it’s an open beach break north of Porto ideal for all levels.

Beginners will stay in the white water at the front and experienced surfers will be able to catch green waves at the back. They have a large selection of surfboards including hardtop longboards and shortboards.

First waves

Whether it is your first time or you have already surfed a few times before but can't catch a green wave yet, this is for you! You will learn or have a refresh of the basics of surfing. They will teach you and guide you towards riding your first waves by yourself in a safe environment and aim to ride your first green waves by the end of the week.

This is the basic package included when you book a shared or private tipi.

Beach lifestyle

You'll get plenty of time to enjoy the beach during your holidays with them. Once back from the surf lessons, you can spend the afternoon at the local beach which is about 7 minutes walk from the camp. They have beach volleyball nets, and balls you can use freely, as well as beach tennis sets. You'll never get tired of the beautiful sunset over the ocean!

Nightlife

When the sun goes down, join them around the crackling campfire for a few drinks and some good vibes. You'll get to know the crew and the other international guests. Throughout the week, they have a few activities including a pub quiz, movie night, cocktail night, and a guitar jam session.

If you feel like partying a little longer, nothing beats a bonfire on the beach with some music and a few drinks! For those wanting more action, you can easily hit the dance floors of Porto's vibrant bars and clubs.

Free photos

They take pictures throughout the week and capture different moments of your surfing progress. They then show the pictures at the end of the week and let you have them for free! Now, when you catch a wave remember to look at the camera and smile.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by car

If you arrive by car, enter the following address into your navigation system: Camping Orbitur Angeiras, Rua de Angeiras - Lavra, 4455-039 Matosinhos. You will receive an information after booking with all the info on how to get to the surf camp.

You can park your car on the external car park of the campsite or inside the campsite, both come with additional costs payable upon arrival directly to the camping park.

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Francisco de Sá Carneiro Airport (OPO). A taxi from Porto Airport is the easiest and quickest. There are always many taxis at the airport. You can get a taxi from there directly without booking. If you prefer booking one in advance, you can always use the Uber app. The price of a taxi is between 10 EUR and 15 EUR.

Arrival by bus

Although it is not far at all, it is quite complicated and long to get to the surf camp by public transport as you have to get to Porto center by metro from the airport and then take a bus (which has many stops before reaching the final destination).

From the airport, take the metro (purple line) to "Sete Bicas". From there, take the bus line 104 to Orbitur Angeiras.

Cancellation Policy

  • A reservation requires a deposit of 30% of the total price.
  • The deposit is non-refundable, if the booking is cancelled.
