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.
