Program

How it works

The surf courses are given normally from Monday to Friday. You will surf twice a day, and each surf session lasts approximately 2 hours. So if you spend your days behind the desk, don't forget to practice some sports before your surfing holidays.

The surf spot and class schedule choice is made according to the surf instructor's experience, considering safety, sea and weather conditions, participants skills (and sure, variety), splitting groups, whenever it seems convenient and sending them to different spots that best match the skills of the corresponding group.

Depending on the conditions and on the level of the students, the lessons can take place at different surf spots within a range of 20 kilometers from the surf school (15 minutes by car). In this case, you will be away for lessons for a total of 5 or 6 hours.

It all starts at the surf school base, 2 minutes walking from the beach. There you find a dressing and chill out area, with shower.

At the surf lessons, you have a ratio of 1 surf instructor and 1 surf assistant for a group of 8 participants.

Near the best Portuguese surf spots, Praia da Areia Branca is the perfect place for surfers, nature lovers, families, friends, and couples. It has something magical that is difficult to describe in words. You can easily fall in love with this small paradise.

Praia da Areia Branca is a small seashore village that has not yet been massively occupied by tourism and in where you can have contact with the local population in a calm and safe environment. At Praia da Areia Branca, you have at your disposal several restaurants, bars, and cafes for different tastes, a mini-golf course, a futsal field, and tennis courts.

With beautiful beaches all along the coast, you can say that the beaches nearby have a mystic aura: filled with a great amount of biodiversity and geodiversity, all of them have hidden treasures to be found. The biggest of all is, with no doubts, the perfect sunset that happens over and over again, once per day, and each of them so differently. You can walk everywhere!

Things to do (optional)

Yoga Classes

Ripar Surf School believes that yoga is for everyone. Whether it is your first day stepping onto the mat or your hundredth, they have a class for you. Yoga and surfing are the perfect combinations. Improving balance and strength, and learning breathing techniques are all pillars of yoga that will help you become a better surfer.

We all know surfing can be hard on our bodies. Yoga postures and stretches can restore balance back to the body and relieve muscle tension caused by surfing. By practising yoga, you take care of your body – meaning you can surf better and surf longer.

Hiking and Tours

Ripar Surf School is based at the heart of the famous Portuguese Silver Coast. There, on every road, by every seaside village and in every corner of the roller interior, there is a lifetime of emotions waiting to be experienced. It is a land of kings and knights, Templars and Moors. A land of vines and fruit, and smiling people with open hearts.

Besides sharing their passion for surfing, Ripar Surf School also invites you to explore authentic Portugal, learn more about its culture, discover hidden gems, and enjoy even more unforgettable experiences.
