Accommodation

Mauka Lodge has four tastefully appointed rooms that can accommodate up to eight guests. All the rooms are cozy and comfortable. You will rest well after days of activities. Music lends a strong influence at Mauka Lodge where you will find guitars, basses, djembes, and more. All the instruments are available to play or listen to while being played by others.

Comfortable hammocks and puffs will give you some space to read a book, play some music, or just relax with a cold beer or glass of Portuguese wine. The outdoor area has a barbecue zone, tranquil terrace, seating areas, and a fire pit for evening music nights and gatherings. Mauka Lodge also has facilities to wash your equipment and wetsuits, as well as grab a refreshing outside shower. Wi-Fi is complimentary and works well throughout the entire lodge.

Program

Your SUP sessions will run for 6 days from 07:00 to 18:00. During your stay, you will have different SUP clinics focused on the individual analysis of your paddling stroke and the theory behind it. You will learn how to improve your stroke efficiency, using less effort with proper posture to catch more waves and avoid injuries.

It is important to know how to use your paddle to make stronger bottom turns and tighter cutbacks. A good cutback is simple when you have proper technique and body alignment. You will learn to do a good cutback out of the water, and then you will practice it in the water.

When your SUP guide is not on the water with you and giving you tips, he will be out of the water taking videos of your performance to analyze your performance later in the day. This system is a major factor in improving your skill level. At the end of your stay, you will be given a copy of all your video footage to take home with you for free.

Location

Mauka Lodge sits on more than an acre of a natural forest, where the scent of the pine trees and the songs of the local birds allow an effortless connection to nature. Mauka Lodge is located in the famous surfing city of Ericeira, Europe’s first World Surfing Reserve.

Well-known breaks, such as Ribeira d’Ilhas, Coxos, and Foz do Lizandro are only five to seven minutes away by car.
