Instructors

Hugo Alves Ferreira
(Surf Coach)
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.

Location

Luhu Surf Camp is located right in front of the beach in the south of Apúlia Village and is only 30 minutes' drive from Porto Airport (OPO) and 40 minutes from the center of Porto. The camp is on the North Coast Natural Park that stretches over 16 kilometers of beautiful coasts with plenty of surf spots with exceptional waves. It is one of the 13 natural parks of Portugal and it encompasses the shores of the Atlantic Ocean in the municipality of Esposende, Portugal, which is only half an hour by car, north of the city of Porto.

The park, with a 16 kilometers coastline, was created to preserve the dunes and the wildlife between the mouth of the river Neiva and the village of Apúlia.
