Accommodation

During this holiday, you will be staying in Guincho Wayra House. The house is set in a picturesque valley, overlooking the breathtaking Guincho beach and the magic Sintra-Cascais Natural Park. Wayra in Quechua, the language of the Incas, means wind, energy flowing, and raising.

The place offers a perfect balance between relaxation, tranquility, and energy, making it Kitesurf Adventures' greatest inspiration to combine yoga sessions with outdoor activities like kitesurfing, surfing, and SUP paddle boarding. The house enjoys a privileged location and views, situated only 15-minute walk to Guincho. It has two dorms with four and six beds, and double rooms with large balconies.

They have a bright and comfortable shala for yoga practices, spacious modern kitchen, laundry service, and central heating. Their common areas are comfortable and surrounded by nature. The living room includes cable television, DVD player, and Wi-Fi connection for the exclusive use of their guests. From there, you will be able to see the most stunning sunsets over the sea.

Program

During this holiday, you will be able to have eight hours of kitesurf, stand up paddle board, and surf lessons. You also have the option to practice only kitesurf, whichever suits you best. Kitesurf Adventures chooses the stunning Guincho Beach, located a three-minute drive from the house, to teach the first part of the kitesurf course which takes place on the sand. Once you are able to handle and control the kite, you will enter the water to learn the next stages.

Kitesurf Adventures will take you on a trip to Fonte da Telha Beach, located 25 kilometers south of Lisbon and a paradise for kitesurfers. The eight-hour kitesurfing lessons will be held in a group. That means you will share the equipment with another person in your same level. There will be maximum two persons per kite. Normally, the full course will take three to four complete afternoons.

As Kitesurf Adventures also loves the waves and windless days, they offer you the possibility to experience surf lessons for beginners and advanced at Guincho Beach and stand up paddle boarding lessons in Cascais area, activities that require balance, concentration, and a dash of daring. Surf and stand up paddle board lessons are given in the morning and with the steady wind picking up after launch, Kitesurf Adventures will take you to navigate on their vans.

They provide shuttle service to the spots and all the necessary gear, insurance, and IKO certification. Everyday, you will start the day with a healthy breakfast and continue with the scheduled water sports. Kitesurf Adventures' instructors are certified. They also are incredibly dynamic and professional in the different sports training that the school offers.
