Program

This surf package includes seven-night accommodation in a spacious room, every morning healthy breakfast, high-speed wireless internet, five times of two-hour of surf teaching, in-depth theory lesson, and unlimited use of all surf material. On the spot, you can book additional surf lessons and guidance as well as yoga, massage, city tours, and airport transfer. The surf package is from Sunday to Sunday.

Surf lessons for all levels

The Magnet Projects offers surf lessons for beginner, intermediate, and advanced surfers. No matter what your level is, with the help of the experienced instructors, you will be able to learn from scratch or simply improve on your skills and technique. The coaches speak English, German, Hungarian, Dutch, French, Spanish, and Portuguese.

The Magnet Projects teaches on the safe sandy beaches of Costa da Caparica, but according to your level, the swell size, and the conditions, you also go to other surf spots. All courses include unlimited use of surf equipment (wetsuit, surfboard, leash, and wax) during and outside the lessons.

For beginners, The Magnet Projects uses soft-top boards from the local Portuguese brand Deeply. These boards are the best and safest way to learn to surf. The groups have a maximum of 5 students per teacher. In addition, the surf course includes a theory lesson in which you will learn everything you need to know about the dangers, currents, tides, wind and wave forecast, as well as the rules that apply in the water.

Location

This surf camp is located in Costa da Caparica, the closest surf town to the Portuguese capital, Lisbon. The neighborhood of Santo Antonio da Caparica serves as home for the guests where they escape the tourist crowds of the center of Caparica, but it is still only a 10-minute walk to the ocean. This Lisbon’s closest beach town is located on the southern shore of the Rio Tejo. Costa da Caparica is a lively, modern, and upcoming town that is adored by the Portuguese but virtually unknown to foreign tourists.

The Costa da Caparica coastline is simply stunning and is famed for its powerful seas with consistent waves, vast sandy beaches, wonderful natural scenery, and lots of sunshine. All of which is less than a 30-minute drive from central Lisbon. The town center of Costa da Caparica doesn't have the historic charm of other beach towns along Portugal’s coastline, but it has a decent selection of shops, cafes, and restaurants.

The surf spot

This exceptional beach is Europe’s longest continuous sandy shoreline and, as facing the powerful Atlantic Ocean, is a paradise for surfers. The waves are suitable for all levels, sheltered and shaped by the nine jetties of Caparica. Heading just a bit south, you can still find deserted beaches around Fonte da Telha, where perfect waves can be found when all is closing-out on the more exposed beaches to the North.

Food

You will be served with fruits, coffee, and tea before surfing. After surfing, you will be provided with a buffet breakfast with fruits, nuts, yogurt, poultry, eggs, vegetables, fresh bread, honey, and jam. Costa da Caparica has a decent selection of cafes and restaurants. These restaurants and cafes are designed for Portuguese so they offer exceptional value for money, especially when the meal is based around the freshly caught fish. There are a few great possibilities to drink a coffee and try the delicious and world famous pastel de nata in one of the Padarias close by. The neighborhood, as well as the surrounding area, offers a wide range of tasty and affordable Portuguese and international restaurants.
