Russo-Vale Figueiras Surf Camp made up a special surf course program to help students to learn the right technique and progress at a faster rate. It includes three hours of lessons per day, dividing into two sessions of one and a half hours. This will all depend on the conditions the ocean provides on the day. Lessons are structured with a warm-up, theoretical exercises on the beach, and a practical part in the water.
Russo-Vale Figueiras Surf Camp suggests to start the surf course on Monday, so you can enjoy the full course, adapting from the beginning. Surf courses are from Monday until Friday and a free surf on Saturday. Soft boards for beginners and hard boards for more intermediates / advanced surfers are available. Vale Figueiras Surf Camp offers surf courses for all levels.
Yoga classes are a thoughtfully handcrafted collection of asanas (postures), connecting body with the breath in a creative flow. A morning flow will awaken and stretch the body creating power for surf; and an evening flow will soothe and nourish your salty souls. Meditation and pranayama (breathe work) will also be part of your practice.
During this surf camp, you will have a transport for Friday's party nights to Lagos or Sagres.
