- After you book we will contact you the week of your lesson to tell you your lessons start time.
The biggest concern in the Kids Lessons is their safety and a quick and effective learning. Students are always accompanied by qualified instructors, ensuring a more controlled and effective learning.
The goal of the classes for beginners is to provide the students with a first contact with sport, and initiate the essential techniques for a good evolution in the surf. Students are always accompanied by monitors present, in order to ensure a good learning and the necessary safety.
In class for intermediate level students, the goal is to develop the techniques previously learned and learn some new ones. Improving the take off , the trimming , and the beginning of more complex maneuvers are part of this learning stage .
The classes for advanced level are characterized by having as objective the improvement of all kinds of maneuvers. Athletes should be prepared to surf any wave. The trainings are subjected to an analysis performed by the coach in order to achieve a good progress of the surf level.
The private lesson is the best option for those who want a quick learning. Because there is one monitor only at their disposal, students can catch the information easily and quickly get results .

How were the surf lessons?
I'm a total newbie so I booked a private lesson to get the most out of the time in the water. My instructor was very professional and helpful. Not only when it comes to surf techniques but also about how to read the waves and such.
I would recommend anyone to do this. It was great!

Surf conditions in Peniche:
Air Temp (°C)
The best thing about the Peniche & Baleal peninsula is that the beaches face both north and south, and are all within a few kilometres of each other. So on nearly all conditions there is surf - it is well known as one of Portugal's most consistent surf destinations and a great place for a Surfing Holiday.
The WSL World Tour comes to Peniche every year in October and is a great time to visit if you want to watch the worlds best surfers such as Kelly Slater, Gabriel Medina & Mick Fanning battle it out to win. Surf everyday while watching the event also.
The areas main surf beach is called Cantinho da Baía, its starts in Peniche and ends up in the area knows as Baleal. The spot is famous for its consistency and for being ideal for beginners and intermediate surfers and is where some of the best Baleal Surf Camps are located. Protected from the bigger swell by the headland makes it’s almost always possible to surf here even when there is big swell hitting the coast. The beach stretches 4kms further west with many spots to surf - a great place to get away from crowds.
On the other side of the Baleal headland is Prainha, another great protected surf spot for beginner and intermediate surfers. And next to this is Lagide , a reef break and one of the best surf spots in Portugal if you have big swell and southerly winds. It's a long perfect left with a shallow reef at low tides - great for intermediate/advanced surfers.
On the other side of Peniche (south) is the area's and arguably Portugal's most famous break Supertubos . It's a powerful wave breaking in very shallow sand bar, advanced/pro surfers only! Other waves such as Molhe Leste, Consolação, Porto Batel and Almagreira are all close by giving every kind of alternative including many uncrowded areas; a great area to explore and Surf Portugal's best waves!
And don't forget you can head south and surf Ericeira - less than an hour's drive away.
