Hugo is a local surfer who began regular surfing at the age of 13. In his student days on his free time, Hugo was always on the water or out looking for waves. After working for a few big companies in health and safety, he decided to follow his passion of teaching surfing. So, he quit the nine-to-five job and began giving lessons full time in a local surf school. Here, Hugo developed the skills to teach surfing and later graduated as a certified surf instructor. Hugo's local knowledge, surf, and teaching experience will be perfect for you to start surfing or to further develop your skills.

Luhu Surf Camp is in the south of the village of Apúlia, Portugal, a 30-minute drive from the Porto Airport (OPO) and 40 minutes from the center of Porto. The camp is located right in front of the beach, in the North Coast Natural Park, a beautiful coastline with plenty of surf spots with exceptional waves that stretches over 16 kilometers.
The North Coast Natural Park is one of the thirteen natural parks of Portugal. It encompasses the shores of the Atlantic Ocean in the municipality of Esposende, half an hour by car north from the city of Porto. The park was created to preserve the dunes and the wildlife between the mouth of the river Neiva and the Village of Apulia - where Luhu Surf Camp is located.
This piece of coastline is formed by extensive sandy beaches, dunes, and pinewoods with many surf spots. Most of the spots are beach breaks and some point breaks as well as reef-breaks. The area is also known for great food. Most of the restaurants here continue to offer the best of the traditional Portuguese cuisine with several customary dishes of the region made of fresh fish, meat, and delicious pastries - with a very friendly price!
