However, there are certain skills you must still work on and you need to refine your technique, which can make a big difference in the way you surf.

  • Price: from US$1,931 per person

Away from the crowds and close to great waves, Figueira da Foz is the perfect destination for surfers who want to improve or surpass their current skill level.

In general, the free surfing time will be in the morning and the surfing class in the afternoon. The program has a personal approach and has maximum of two participants. You will get personal feedback on what you need to work on, develop confidence on the waves, and improve your technique so that you can perform both classic and more advanced maneuvers.

Daily breakfast, daily use of surfing equipment, as well as the transfer to the surf spots are included in the price.

You’ll be staying at Quinta D'Anta Hotel and Surf Lodge, a boutique hotel that combines tranquility with the comfort of a modern hotel. It features a restaurant and a bar, an outdoor swimming pool, and BBQ facilities. All rooms have a private bathroom, AC, and Wi-Fi.
