Shark’s Lodge Surf Camp Portugal Program

Whether you are a complete beginner or an intermediate surfer looking for some tips to improve your surfing, Shark's Lodge provides personal and professional surf lessons adapted to each individual. Each student will have enough attention and an optimal learning experience.

Classes are taught by certified surf instructors (ISA) who, thanks to 20 years of experience, are able to teach surfing in a safe and responsible manner so you can enjoy the experience of catching waves.

Each surf lesson takes about two hours. During the first lesson, the surf instructor implements a short safety briefing, giving you a proper introduction to the sport. You will receive the appropriate equipment that fits your needs and level of surfing.

Depending on your level, you will learn to dominate one or more of the following objectives:

  • Standing on a surfboard and riding waves
  • How to position yourself correctly on the board
  • How to paddle
  • How to stand correctly
  • Technical correction - the surfer’s stance
  • How to keep your speed when riding waves
  • How to catch unbroken waves
  • How to take the drop
  • How to turn
  • How to ride across the waves
  • Etiquette
  • How to read the beach for the best waves, rips, and currents

Location

Peniche is known as the wave capital in Europe due to its exclusive geography, providing the best surfing conditions for more than 300 days per year. This made Peniche widely known for its unique waves as it gave the name to the beach including Supertubos, Lagide, and Baleal. These facts and more led ASP in 2009 to establish one of the World Tour of Surfing stages here and it's also the proscenium to the Rip Curl Pro Peniche.

Things to do (optional)

Climbing

Limestone cliffs facing the sun, perfect for half a day outing when the surf is flat. From the crags, you can view the beautiful coastline of the Silver Coast, one of the best touristic regions in Portugal. The area is close to the Cabo Carvoeiro lighthouse, one of the most western points in Europe.

Shark’s Lodge does top or bottom rope, some areas are equipped for sports climbing and there is also an area for traditional climbing (Shark’s Lodge does not supply the equipment for this one).

Cross training

Cross training is a dynamic, full-body workout that consists of functional movements performed at a relatively high intensity and Shark’s Lodge assures you that it will take your fitness to the next level.

Pole dance

Pole dance is a full-body workout and form of performing art which combines resistance training, cardio, and flexibility. Shark’s Lodge will teach you how to perform dance and acrobatic tricks with grace, strength, and sensuality, either suspending your weight or propelling it around a metal pole. The combination of athletic skill and artistic influence makes it incomparable to anything else. It is both dance and sport woven together into one beautiful, athletic art form.

Scuba diving

Discover the transparent and amazing underwater world of Berlengas, a small archipelago located about 10 kilometers west of Peniche which is classified as a Nature Reserve since September 3, 1981. Its marine reserve is classified as a "Biosphere Reserve" by the Council of Europe since 2011 and "World Biosphere Reserve" by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

Trip to Berlengas

The Berlenga Nature Reserve is a unique place due to its transparent sea and underwater treasures. It is a marine reserve and has been classified by the Council of Europe as a "Biosphere Reserve". The archipelago consists of a large island, Berlenga Grande, and some small granite islands and rocks (Estelas and Farilhões) which are situated some 7 miles off the headland of Cabo Carvoeiro to the northwest of Peniche.

The island of Berlenga Grande can be seen from the mainland when there is no sea mist. Here, you will find endemic species of flora, as well as one of the preferred nesting sites for seabirds. Built on a rock adjacent to the Berlenga island and connected to it by a small bridge, there stands the Forte de São João Baptista, a Manueline military fortress built in 1502. The island’s tiny beaches with their clear blue sea are very beautiful and ideal for swimming and diving.

Access to the island is by boat, with departures from Peniche harbor. It takes roughly 30 minutes to reach Berlenga Grande. There is also a restaurant on the island.
