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.

  • 10:15 Lesson starts

Things to do (optional)

Tours

Don't expect this to be a conventional surf camp. Ripar Surf Camp doesn't hate tourism tours. But they do hate tours without a soul. Do you want to be driven around on a black funeral car and listen to a standard speech? Hope not. Ripar Surf Camp offers a meaningful manner of travel, emphasizing local knowledge and emotional experiences.

Ripar Surf Camp's team is made up of Portuguese people passionate about travel, Lisbon, and the ocean. They are all crazy in love with Portugal. And they want to share it with you.

Massage

Get even more connected! Ripar Surf Camp offers a special massage therapy which helps alleviate physical exhaustion, tensions, and other minor conditions that surf students may experience after an intensive surf session. The objective of the therapy is to restore the flexibility of the joints by loosening minor muscle contractions and correcting mechanical imbalances caused by the unusual exercise.

Shiatsu massage is based on the principles of Chinese traditional medicine. It consists of applying pressure to the acupoints, in which the therapist uses fingers, palms, feet, and his / her own weight, without using any oils or creams.

The most important benefits are stimulation of the self-regulatory system of the organism, deep relaxation of body and mind, and the release of energetic tensions and blockages. It will also support the natural and free flow of the vital energy (Qi) and the contact with the body and inner self. A pure moment of heaven!
