I surf Portugal Surf Camp is based during mid-season (April to mid-June and mid-September to November) in a Surf Apartment in the center of Póvoa de Varzim (Porto district). It is based in the center of the beach town with lots of cafés, shops, entertainment, and of course, the beach.

You will be sleeping in new bunk beds in a shared room or you can have your own private bedroom for two or three for a little extra, or even an apartment for your group or family, just ask when you book. All bed linens and towels are provided. The surf camp has a TV where you will see your surfing videos of the week and free Wi-Fi. There is a patio to chill with a beer or a glass of wine and read a book, or just get to know some new friends.


The surf program is made for beginners and intermediate surfers. Advanced surfers can also join and make the most of I surf Portugal's local knowledge. The surf lessons are organized to make sure you learn all the skills to become a real surfer. You will understand all the basics of surfing and will be able to stand on the board and do some turns by the end of the week.

You will have five days of surf lessons in the water plus theory lessons where you will learn surf etiquette, how to read waves, the best beaches to practice, etc. The surf lessons are about three hours each and you will be in groups of eight per instructor to ensure that you progress quickly. I surf Portugal will choose the best time of day to have the lessons depending on the wave conditions and tides. The lessons are mainly taught in English, French, Spanish, and obviously Portuguese!

I surf Portugal offers plenty of other activities outside of the surf lessons. There is a day trip to Porto once a week where you will discover why it was voted the best European destination of 2017. I surf Portugal also has other activities that can be booked once at the surf camp such as yoga, SUP, bike rides, tennis, horse riding, kayak, golf, and more to ensure that you make the most out of your holiday (additional charges apply).

Included excursions

There is a free day during the week where you can go and visit Porto. You will discover this amazing UNESCO World Heritage city that won European best destination in 2017, try tasty Portuguese food specialties, and taste some Port wine. I surf Portugal organizes bike rides, SUP tours, and kayak activities on the river once a week as well as other activities when requested (at an additional cost).





The surf camp is located in the town center of Povoa de Varzim (district of Porto), a beach town two minutes' walk away to the beach. It is close to great surf spots to learn and improve your surfing or even enjoy great surfing conditions if you are an advanced surfer.

Póvoa de Varzim and Aguçadoura are amazing for advanced surfers and are famous surfing spots for their left-hand waves.

Póvoa de Varzim is a great holiday town as it has all the entertainment needed, cafés, bars, restaurants, and shops. It has many outdoor activities in the summer with free street concerts, the biggest party being Sao Pedro on 29 June where you will experience the biggest street party you have seen. Póvoa de Varzim is ideally located with a direct metro line to the center of Porto. The surf camp is centrally located and within walking distance to everything, including the beach, bars, restaurants, and the metro line.
