Program

During this all week-long surf camp, you will have surf coaching, stand up paddle boarding, and yoga session.

Surf coaching

This all-girls surf camp is perfect for all levels, whether you are a beginner, an intermediate and looking to ride green waves, or confidently riding down the line and looking to work on turns. The dedicated surf coach will create a tailored program based on your level experience that will make you find confidence in the water and surf better than ever by the end of your week.

Stand up paddle boarding

The Tiny Whale Surf and Kite Lodge's sunrise paddleboarding lesson and tour is a real highlight of the week. Stand up paddle boarding is the world’s fastest growing water sport and a brilliant all body workout, with a focus on core and balance, which goes hand in hand with surfing. In this surf camp, you will be surprised how quickly you will be on your feet and making quick progress. Your lesson starts on Praia Dona Ana, which is voted as Europe’s most beautiful beach, before gliding along the stunning coastlines and exploring caves and grottoes.

Yoga

After a day of surfing and chilling at the beach, you will return to the villa for a sunset yoga session in the garden yoga studio. The qualified yoga teacher will guide you through inspiring yoga classes. This practice is the perfect way to gently, yet deeply, stretch and strengthen your entire body, relax, and totally unwind after a day in the sun and surf.

Hike

Enjoy a coastal hike with stunning views of crystal clear waters and the region’s rugged cliffs. Discover secret beaches, exotic plant, and wildlife, and savor the smell of wild herbs growing along the way. Refresh after the hike with a sea view lunch in a beautiful local fishing village.

Typical day

Be ready with a comfy bikini, some factor 30, and your phone fully charged, photo opportunity central. Start off with an energizing yoga session with Miri and tuck into your healthy breakfast. You’ll need the energy for paddling. Then, you’re off, cruise in the surf van through the beautiful Portuguese countryside to the best beach of the day. Your instructors will guide you with advice and a lesson on the beach before you start practicing in the water. After a few hours with the sand and waves, head back to the surf lodge to rinse the salt out of your hair, take some pool-side hammock time, and enjoy your healthy dinner. End the evening talking about your day around the fire with other Roxy ladies often from all over the world.

Included excursions

Instructors

Miri is Tiny Whale Surf and Kite Lodge's highly experienced and well-loved yoga instructor.

Location

This surf camp will take place at the Tiny Whale Surf Lodge in Lagos, Algarve, which is situated in a unique peaceful countryside near Lagos Town, Portugal. The Algarve is slowly being recognized as one of the world's top five SUP destinations. Boasting two unbeatable coastlines, plus a variety of lakes, rivers, and lagoons, there's something to please everyone. Jaw dropping flatwater paddling locations, perfect teaching conditions, and world-class surf make this an unforgettable trip.

Bursting with the sunshine and known for its laid-back lifestyle, the Western Algarve is the perfect holiday destination to unwind and recharge with some deserved rest and recuperation. Whether you achieve this by exploring the fantastic culture and unspoiled countryside, chilling out and catching some waves at some of Europe's most stunning beaches, or want to find adventure taking part in the endless outdoor activities on offer, the choice is yours.

Well away from the mainstream Eastern Algarve international tour operators, the West has largely stayed underdeveloped and still retains its natural charm. Traveling just half an hour from either the south or west coast up through the countryside to the Monchique mountain at 1000 meters, the whole area is speckled with small villages and towns with one foot in past.
