During the holiday, you will be staying at The Ocean Spirit Lodge in a private room or a shared room with your friends or strangers. It is a place where modern-day pirates mingle with nomadic mermaids, where freshwater sailors meet old salt dogs, and where well-traveled treasure hunters socialize with passport stamp collectors. It is also a place where the seafaring tribes of board sports enthusiasts meet. There are three types of room for your choice.

Dorm

This room is a four-bed luxury dorm, which is perfect for budget travelers or small groups. It has a bathroom with a shower and a toilet. The room is equipped with individual reading lights, lockers, and loads of smart design details. Wi-Fi is available with a solid connection.

Suite

There are two rooms with the palette wood interior where you can feel like living in a postmodern pirate admiral’s cabin. The room is equipped with a queen-size bed. There are three bathrooms with showers and toilets on this upper deck of the lodge. Wi-Fi is available with a solid connection.

Suite with a balcony

There are three suites with private balconies overlooking the surrounding nature. The room is equipped with a queen-size bed or two single beds. There are three bathrooms with showers and toilets on this upper deck of the lodge. Wi-Fi is available with a solid connection.

Program

During the first three hours, you will experience the power of the kite pulling you through the water and you’ll be hooked immediately! In only three days, you will learn the basics and be able to ride a board. As long as your body weight is at least 45 kilograms, no one is too young or old for this activity (Kite School Portugal accept students from 14 to 75 year olds).

Equipment has become considerably safer during recent years, so kitesurfing gets your adrenaline levels up without being necessarily an extreme sport. Well, at least if you have this kind of equipment and know how to use it properly. At Kite School Portugal, they do. That is why they got their internationally recognized license from VDWS International.

To get going, Kite School Portugal recommends you to take professional lessons for at least three to five days, and to keep practicing under the supervision of a kite school after that, so you have a rescue service available if needed. Soon, you will be able to fly your board across the oceans safely and with control.

You will have 10 hours of kitesurf sessions. The goal of this course is to get you up and riding on your board and to learn how to go upwind. This program includes:

  • Complete theory
  • Safety systems
  • Equipment set up
  • Launching
  • Landing
  • Piloting a small trainer kite on the beach
  • Practicing with a bigger inflatable kite in the water
  • Body dragging
  • Water relaunch
  • Self-rescue
  • Waterstart
  • Riding with control

Location

The surf camp will take place in Algarve, Portugal. It is close enough to the buzzing tourist hotspot Lagos, but far enough to enjoy the relaxed vibe of nature. It has an excellent kitesurfing, surfing, and stand up paddle boarding spots in all directions. The Southwest Algarve is a very special place for all kinds of water sports and tours. Located on the tip of land between the south-facing and west-facing coast around Sagres and Lagos, there is always different wind and swell directions just around the corner.

No matter what activity you want to do, kitesurfing lessons, surfing, or stand up paddle boarding in Lagos, the perfect conditions are usually just a short drive away. The rough scenery and unspoiled nature are breathtaking. This region has one of the biggest and best-preserved coastlines in Europe. Some of the most beautiful places are only accessible by water, which makes it extremely exciting to explore this region on top of a SUP board or under a kite.

Sandy beaches, crystalline lagoons, flat waters, and the fun waves make it the perfect location for your surfing holiday. The place is located just in the middle of buzzing Lagos and secluded nature places. The nearest beach is only 700 meters away from the accommodation. Supermarkets, ATMs, restaurants, and several bars are just around the corner.
