Program

On the first lesson, you'll be assessed and grouped according to your experience and coached in small groups. Magikvanilla Surf Camp keeps a ratio of five or fewer guests. Throughout the week, you may have from early sessions to sunset surf. All lessons are two hours long at the beach and include gear, insurances, and transfer.

Location

Magikvanilla sits in one of the few secluded properties in Ericeira. Right next to it, the community garden and a picnic park give it a feel of being surrounded by nature and sea. Within minutes, you can walk to different beaches or pop down the town center. You just need to go down the road to find a pharmacy, supermarket, or restaurant.

This beautiful seaside town, once home for the Phoenicians, became the county of Ericeira in 1229. By then, seafarers, royalty, and wanderers already enjoyed the same beaches, valleys, and bays as people do today. In 2011, Ericeira became the first World Surfing Reserve in Europe, second in the world. It is a place praised for eight kilometers of shoreline brimming with world-class surf spots and one of the most preserved surf-havens on the planet. It is a small town but full of life. Especially in the sunny seasons, when days and nights are warm and long-lasting.

The center is bubbling with people, street fairs, lovely shops, and a great variety of bistros, cafes, and terraces. The evening starts slow, with plenty of restaurants serving dinner until late, pubs, bars, folk parties, and even a club open until the early hours in the summer. All of this is so close to the main capital, Lisbon, that offers frequent flights from all the major cities in the world and a must see if you travel to Portugal. Magikvanilla Surf Camp is 35 minutes away from one of the most beautiful towns in the world, a UNESCO World Heritage Site called Sintra and the camp often organizes trips to this location.
