CONFIRMATION

Thank you for your interest in coming to stay & experience a week surfing with us!

Our office hours are 9am - 5pm GMT and we aim to respond to all inquires within 4 hours

 

 

In the mean time here's some useful information about a trip with us:

Our packages run from Saturday to Saturday

We know surf holidays are the best they can be when there’s a solid start and finish date to the groups trip for the week. You can arrive a day earlier (Friday) and leave a day later (Sunday) if there’s flight options for these days that are more convenient for you.

 

We’re serious about surf coaching!

Don’t worry you’re not signing yourself up for a week of 6am starts and intensive paddling drills! We just want to provide the best possible weeks coaching you’ll ever receive, and that includes highly qualified and dedicated surf coaches, a tailored surf coaching plan for the week just for you, plenty of video coaching and a variety of modern techniques to make you a better and more knowledgeable surfer.

 

Our Surf Lodge 

We’re not your normal surf camp. We’ve upgraded our accommodation & food offering from previous years and are gradually updating our website to reflect all the changes. Forget cramped dorms & squashed private rooms and think sleek, stylish & airy boutique hotel. More info & pictures on our new lodge plus any of our current deals can be found by following us on Facebook & Instagram.

 

What’s included and pricing   

Virtually everything you’ll need is included, apart from some spending money for two evenings out in our local town of Lagos and airport transfers. A full list of inclusions and prices are featured at the bottom of the package you are interested in on our website.

 

And finally….

We know booking holidays can be tricky and it’s sometimes nice to speak to a real person. 7 days a week from 9am-5pm we have a knowledgeable team available if you need to chat with us at any point.

50/50 SURF & YOGA

 

Practice a deeper level of yoga through a variety of disciplines whilst improving your fitness, flexibility & surf skills with our highly qualified coaches 

NEW FOR 2019 - 50/50 SURF & YOGA RETREAT

We're equally passionate about Yogas as we are about Surfing. For 2019 we're offering an innovative new package that brings together some of the most talented and experienced surfing and yoga instructors that Europe has to offer, to deliver a unique experience.

Yoga and surfing go hand in hand in promoting a healthy body and mind. We will provide you with a week of high-quality surf coaching for real improvement in your surf skills and a carefully thought out yoga program that not only complements each days surfing but also leaves you at the end of the week feeling relaxed, refreshed and ready to take on the world again.
 
The 50/50 package will equally focus on both surfing and yoga. Yoga will be delivered by our in house instructor Miri with a view to guiding your self-discovery as well as developing your individual practice and yoga knowledge. Alongside this you'll receive surf coaching from an ISA level 2 instructor in small groups of no more than 3 people; this approach allows us to focus on a personalised coaching plan, carefully analyze your surfing and track your progress as you develop your surfing ability.

MEET MIRI

Miri is Tiny Whale’s fully qualified in-house yoga instructor. As a certified Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT®) she has over 7 years teaching experience, regularly attending continued teacher training workshops all over the world. She brings the most up to date knowledge and proven techniques to her classes, making use of both traditional and modern perspectives.

The disciplines of yoga and surfing go hand in hand. Both bring physical transformation and mental enhancement.

As a surfer, Miri has first hand experience of the physical benefits of adding yoga to your surfing routine, in building balance, flexibility, and strength. Mental benefits include increased focus and awareness of your mind, body and surroundings.

 

 

I have developed a unique blend of Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa flow and Yin yoga in my classes that perfectly complements a full day of surfing.

As with many sports, surfing uses the muscles of the body in a repetitive unbalanced way i. e. some muscles work much harder than others meaning imbalance and tension occur over time. A key focus in yoga is awareness of the body, recognising areas of tight muscles and working through poses to correct them. Groups of muscles are simultaneously lengthened and strengthened through both dynamic and static poses. This brings balance to the body rather than exacerbating existing areas of strength and weakness. Miri will teach you ideal pre-surf warm ups and post-surf stretches to manage tension in the body, keeping you supple, strong and ready for the next wave.

LOCATION

Nestled at the bottom of the lodge garden our dedicated outdoor yoga space is perfectly located for peaceful sessions in the serene countryside of the Algarve’s idyllic South coast. Away from the hustle and bustle yet still close to the nearest town, we’re perfectly located for quick access to the stunning beaches of the south and west coastlines, well known for their prime surfing spots.

THANK YOU MIRI & THE TEAM!

"A well thought out week, we made real progress with our surfing skills and Miri's excellent instruction left us rejuvenated, eager to continue our yoga practice at home!"
