For the past six years Surfana has been hosting surf trips in the Algarve, one of Surfana Surftrips’ favorite surf destinations. There is always plenty of sun, every day there are waves to be found and the surroundings are absolutely beautiful. The weeks are always full of surfing, exploring, and good times. Come and experience the waves of the Algarve!
For this surf camp, you will be staying at Villa Quinta dos Gaviãos at Porto de Mós, Lagos which is about 25 minutes’ walk from the town center of Lagos. The views are amazing, and there are not many houses in the surroundings. There are rooms with en-suite bathrooms as well as shared bathrooms. It's an authentic Portugese villa with a swimming pool and a huge kitchen where all food will be prepared for you.
You sleep with max of two others in the room. The single villa is spacious inside with a fireplace and plenty of space to relax. You can take a nice splash in the pool or sunbathe on one of sunbeds. You do not have to bring a blanket or pillow. Surfana Surftrips also provide clean sheets.
During this program, there will be five days with two hours of surf lessons and coaching with personal attention, plus as much surfing as possible. With two surf instructors handling ten people, there will be a lot of attention to improve your skills!
In Portugal, you can enjoy good waves all year round. For every kind of surfer, the perfect wave can be found in the Algarve, both on the south and southwest coast of Portugal there are plenty of beautiful beaches. This makes the Algarve extremely suitable for both beginner and advanced levels of surfers.
You will work together with a local surf school and also take surf instructors from Surfana. All surf instructors are internationally qualified and have a lifeguard certificate. Everyone will be improved on his / her level.
Yoga helps to make your body and mind more powerful and flexible. The exercises are an ideal preparation for surfing and help you move more smoothly in the water. Every day you start with a wonderful yoga class and sometimes the day ends with a relaxed cool down lesson (depending on the wave forecasts for example).
Depending on the level and wishes of the group, both quiet and active lessons will be offered. These can vary from a relaxed (yin yoga) lesson to a more active challenging vinyasa flow. The lessons are given in different places, for example on the beach, inside the villa or at the swimming pool. After this surf & yoga week you will feel reborn, full of energy and physical strength!
Above is an example schedule. Nothing is mandatory, you can go your own way and decide if you join, or go with the flow. You do not have to have experience with yoga or surfing to go with the surf and yoga week.
You will have trips to the local market and a visit to village that are already included in the package.
