How did you like the accommodation?

     

Accommodation very nice but I did have the private room. The facilities (kitchen and bathrooms) were kept in a good and clean condition but with so many using them you did have to wait your turn.
The town was nice although surrounding area was a bit run down and the restaurants were numerous and friendly and always made an effort to speak English.

How were the surf lessons?

     

All Fantastic. Friendly efficient and professional. Would recommend this place to anyone. Arrived with my 2 daughters 16 and 14 and were looked after Brilliantly.
Beach close and clean and we had good waves.

I liked the accommodation. Is a small town but lively and beautiful and there was a food festival at the end of June.

How were the surf lessons?

     

The surf lessons were absolutely perfect and great fun. The instructors are real professionals and look after all the surfers. We visit different beaches and they were gorgeous.

Esmoriz is an amazing surfing area with beautiful sandy beaches. You will find quality, uncrowded waves which are suitable for every level of surfer. Our beach front Surf House is comfortable, laid back, and right next to the top surf spots in the region including Cortegaça and Espinho. In case of inclement weather, we also travel to Matosinhos in Porto, one of the best learner breaks in Europe.

Main Surf Beach: Esmoriz

Surf Lessons we offer:

Beginner Surf Lessons

Learn to surf with us! Even if you have never stood on a surfboard before, our friendly and qualified coaches will have you surfing in no time. Get direct personal feedback on the beach and in the water: our group lessons are never more than 8 people per coach. Aside from the surf lessons which take place on the beach, we organise two weekly theory sessions at the surf camp.

Intermediate Surf Lessons

Our special intermediate course aims at surfers who want to improve the ability to better select waves and position, pop up faster and on steeper green waves and carve on the wave face. Also learn more about surfboard shapes and their performance, and get advice on board selection. But most of all it will be a week of exploring the best surf spots nearby and get you riding the right waves.

Yoga

Yoga lessons 3 times per week from June through September


Esmoriz

Esmoriz

Level: All Levels

Our home spot right in front of the surf camp.
Wide sandy beach with variety of sand banks and very little crowds. Works best on low tide for beginners and mid to high tide for intermediates / advanced. Often has some hidden gems breaking in the middle of the beach, near the surf camp.

Maceda

Maceda

Level: All Levels

One of the most beautiful surf spots in the region, right next to a huge pine forest and only 5 mins. from the surf camp.
Lots of quality waves and mostly crowded on weekends.
Works best mid to high tide,

Espinho (Casino)

Level: Advanced

Right Hand Point break. Best wave in north Portugal!
Very crowded and often stressful due to localism, but this wave is amazing for advanced surfers. Best at low tide,

The best time to surf Porto is between Spring through to Autumn. It's main surf beach is Matosinhos beach, the best surf spot in Porto for beginner and intermediates. Its a long 1km sandy beach with a few different points on it. The set up is a mix of beach break and reef break and parts of it are sheltered so it handles larger swell. Easy to get to and consistent.

Next to Matosinhos is International Beach. A lovely spot that begins where the city park ends. Its also a great learner spot, and a great place to hang out both during day and at night. Further north is Leca, a very consistent beach break protected by the harbour.

In and around the city there are small little beaches all worth exploring, particularly for the more advanced surfers wanting to discover the best Porto surf breaks.

There are more surf breaks further south including Barra do Porto and Miramar and then 20km south of Porto are the towns of Esphino and Esmoriz. Its arguably the North's most famous surf area and the beaches have a real nice surf culture. The area's 3 main beaches are Silvade, beach, Blue beach and Baia beach. A mix of sandy beach breaks and reef spots that suit beginner and advanced. Hang around and score some long barreling right & left handers all to yourself.
