Self-Improving Surf Camp in Portugal

Maximum 16 participants

SUP and surfing go together like the sea and saltwater. Both disciplines tap into a natural flow. SUP gets you in touch with the rhythm of your breath and body, while surfing gets you in sync with the wave patterns and ocean tides. SUP postures help to strengthen the key physical points to the surfing practice, such as arms, legs, back, and wrists; minimizing the risk of injuries and improving recovery time after a surf session. They help you focus your mind and supports your balance on the board. This vacation has been designed so that you can enjoy a different and quality vacation. Start surfing or bring your surfing skills to a whole other level!

Golden Heritage Ericeira Villas' goal is to be more a home than a surf camp which allows you to have individual attention. The accommodation is the alternative for those seeking for some peace of mind, located in the city center but on one of the few premium properties in Ericeira.

It has a common pool, outdoor parking, and also a number of green spaces. Not only the Golden Heritage itself but its outdoor pool, the lovingly landscaped garden, as well as the countless chill-out and withdraw options also leaves nothing to be desired. The team is composed of people who travel a lot. They know the importance of being well received and followed up when they come to a country that is not theirs. If you find you need anything extra or have some special requests, please tell Golden Heritage Ericeira Villas.

Shared twin room

The shared twin room is for one or two guests, equipped with two twin beds, lots of light, and shared full bathroom for every three bedrooms. The bedrooms are inserted in one of the large villas of the property.

This camp will take place in Ericeira, Lisbon, Portugal. Early in the morning, the misty veil slowly rains over the Portuguese Atlantic Coast and the first rays of sunlight fall warmly over the Surf Riders & CO - Surf Camp, dipping the flowers and palm trees in the garden into a light morning blush. The chirping of the little birds is the only noise you hear.

Nestled among the rolling fields of lush green vegetation, stands the villas of Surf Riders & CO - Surf Camp, overlooking the region of Ericeira. Here, the world is still in order. Slowly, the clear air mixes with the aroma of freshly brewed coffee. The surrounding area also offers a lot. For city lovers and explorers, the center of the beautiful city Ericeira (the first world reserve surf in Europe and second in the world and part of the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) world tour) and its many stunning beaches are within walking distance.

Apart from being a relaxed surf town, Ericeira is known for its combination of traditional and modern Portuguese charm. The beautiful scenery of blue and white architecture stretches through the entire cityscape. Its vibrant nightlife invites you to let go and dance through the night. The local and international restaurants make sure you get the best service while eating fresh and healthy delicacies.

Ericeira is very close to Lisbon and Sintra as well as many other spots worth visiting if you fancy a change of scenery. For those who like to explore more of the Portuguese Atlantic Coast, the historical cities, such as Óbidos, Peniche, and Fatima are very close too. The whole coastline invites water sports enthusiasts to go surfing, sailing, diving, and canoeing, while land lovers come with hiking, golfing, biking, and many more activities at their expense.
