SaltyWay will accommodate you for 7 nights. Their accommodation is a typical Portuguese 'Moradia'. They recently renovated the building and garden, and created a place like home. The place comfortably accommodates 10 - 12 guests. It is a blend of typical Portuguese style furnishings with a cozy and intimate surf vibe. Their 3 rooms are available for 2 or 6 persons, those are clean, functional, and furnished, equipped with Wi-Fi access, towels, and linen.

There is a good-sized garden and chill out area with barbecue facilities and an outside shower. It is the perfect spot for barbecues, sunset beers, sunbathing, afternoon yoga or chilling out in a hammock with a book. Self-catering is also available, they encourage communal shopping and cooking. The kitchen offers all you need to make a good meal and provide living areas that are equipped accordingly. In fact, over the years the best evenings have definitely been when the group cook together and share a few glasses of local wine and tales from the day's adventures.


You will learn all about surfing, the waves, the material, and the ocean in 5 half a day surf classes. You will be taken to the best beaches so you can surf your first waves with foam and if possible, by the end of the week you will surf some small waves. You will also have a 1-hour-30-minute yoga session a week to complement your surfing. The yoga will not only improve your balance and offer a welcomed relief to sore muscles from all the surfing but a chance to refocus and settle your mind after the adrenaline of the day.


Julika Nölte
Julika Nölte's love of ocean, nature, and sports have led her, in 2015, to create SaltyWay. She was born and raised in Kiel, Germany, by the ocean, and has always had a longstanding relationship with the sea. In her late teens, Kiel became her base between extended trips to Australia, Mexico, Brazil, Indonesia, Morocco, and Europe. She began studying sports science in Kiel, teaching sport in Gran Canaria, and also surf for many years across Europe, that being the foundation for the awesome surf teacher she is today. Portugal has become her new home and where she enjoys life to the fullest.
João or “Rasta” as he is known there at SaltyWays is an excellent climbing guide, photographer, and a nice guy. He has been a climbing enthusiast for the last 10 years. Over the past decade, he has been actively involved in the development of Sintra’s bouldering scene and associated online group ‘Boulder Sintra’.
Masha is a yogi, rock climber, and nature lover currently based in Portugal. She teaches her unique and transformative classes and retreats across Europe and is part of the Sivananda yoga team in teacher training courses in France and India. Masha’s teaching offers a heart-opening, invigorating, and experiential practice, grounded with a focus on both physical and energetic alignment.


This surf camp will take place at SaltyWay, located in Sintra, Portugal. SaltyWay's house is beautifully situated off the beaten track, right in the heart of nature in Colares near Lisbon. You will enjoy the tranquility of the Serra, a silent nights' sleep and early surf wake ups with the birds. The house is also situated between Almocageme and Praia das Maçãs. Both are small picturesque Portuguese villages with a range of restaurants, bars, small shops, and cheap local markets (a great place to buy your week's supply of fresh fruit and vegetables).

Sintra has a variety of breaks suitable for riders of all abilities. From super fun beaches to endless point breaks and rippable reef breaks, you can find every type of wave here. The best surf spots in Sintra are Praia Grande and Praia Pequena, Praia das Maçãs, Guincho, and Carcavelos.
