We have 5 rooms (2 to 4 beds), 3 bathrooms, a common area leading to the terrace, 2 fully equipped kitchens and 3 terraces: chill-out zone for the tired surfers, BBQ area for the hungry ones and the breakfast terrace for people who like to enjoy the beginning of the day with some fresh air.

International Surf School is certified by the Portuguese Surfing Federation, the Nature Conservation Institute, and the Lagos Coast Guard. International Surf School is based in Sagres, a place privileged by mother-nature, with coastlines facing both south and west. That is the reason why the area is known for having the highest swell consistence in all Continental Europe. Our experienced surf teachers will lead you through the first steps on how to stand up on a surf board, teach you how to turn and will help you improve on a one to one basis.

What to expect of the course

Our surf teachers teach students from absolute beginners to advanced surfers. The beginners lessons take place every day and advanced level lessons take place, usually, from Monday to Friday.

Usually, we leave the surf house around 09:30 and come back around 16:30, but, if needed, we might adapt the schedule to the best surf conditions.

The surf lessons last for approximately 3 hours a day, and, in order to maximize your surfing skills, we will always try to split it in two 1.5 hours sessions.

Most of the times the surf lessons take place in wild beaches with no infra-structure so dont forget your lunch box, some water and sun protection.

This program takes place in Sagres, Portugal. From the harbor, you have a stunning sunrise view and from the Cape (Cabo de So Vicente) you can admire the most beautiful sunset view!
