"The BEST all level surf camp in Portugal"
I've been to surf camps/lodges all over the world over the past ~15 years. Peniche Surf Lodge is absolutely one of the best. Common issues with these camps are that the instructors aren't able to provide much 1:1 instruction or actual helpful guidance, the board selection is terrible, and there's not a lot of variability in wave type. You will not have any issue with any of those things at Peniche. Dane and Duncan are top-notch surf coaches. Great attitudes, super-specific and helpful instruction, goal-oriented. I'm an intermediate surfer and felt like I have been plateauing, with these guys, I improved on my surfing every day. They have a huge selection of boards. From foam, to epoxy, to fiberglass. Longboards, shortboards, pintails, quad fish...I'm pretty sure if they don't have it they'd find it for you somehow. Lastly, between the conditions in Peniche and the knowledge of the local area they will find waves for you. The one day we didn't have waves (we did it was just insanely windy) during the two weeks I was there Duncan took everyone out for a longboard skate session which was super fun and helped with our turning skills.
On top of all of that, they get a lot of return customers, and it really feels like you're part of a family. The lodge is super comfortable and social. I made a lot of friends there and one night Duncan drove us to one of their favorite local restaurants for an incredible meal. Great people, great surfing, incredible time. I'll be back for sure!
