Program

Your instructor, Joao, will pick you at 9:00 a.m. at the lodge to start the activities day. The group will head to the best spot of the day, depending on ocean conditions, crowds, and group skills.

Surfing begins with a short warmup and an explanation about all surf techniques: paddling, wave positioning, catching waves, standing on the board, and riding waves properly. You can expect a clear exemplification of every step you will need to take in order to get the most of it. Before getting into the water, you will also be provided with instructions about safety procedures and surf etiquette.

During your experience, you will probably be able to stand on the board or fell some improve, but above all, you will enjoy an amazing great energy provided from the ocean and the sun, as well as feel inspired by the moment.

The group will be dropped by the lodge around 12:30 p.m. Afterwards, you may want to go eat, have some rest, sunbathing at local beach (300 meters far from the lodge) or just grab the metro (50 meters far from the lodge) and head to Porto city center, for some sightseeing and shopping.

At your arrival, you will be invited to join different experiences that mainly take place during the afternoon, that you can sign up to join.
