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 (can be painful to watch, but so powerful for improvement) 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 for your trip apart from some spending money for two evenings out in our local town of Lagos. A full list of what’s included plus the pricing is 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.

STAND UP PADDLE BOARDING

Experience the wild beauty of the Algarve’s diverse coastline and the buzz of the world’s fastest growing watersport with one of our paddle boarding holidays...

PADDLE WITH TINY WHALE

Our resident expert instructor will guide you in a range of disciplines, improve your technique and get you feeling confident. You'll get to discover this magical area of the Algarve coastline, explore sea caves, glide down a majestic river to the sea and relax with a tranquil night time tour complete with underwater lights.

PROGRAM

In this bespoke week you'll discover how to paddleboard like a pro. Lessons across four days offer a variety of disciplines and are matched to the best conditions for each day. Our experienced instructor will teach you all you need to know to become one with your equipment and each water environment you come into contact with. Check through the slides below to see what's on offer...

  • CAVE AND GROTTO TOUR


    Once equipped with your improved technique, we’ll head out to sea to navigate the many caves and grottos punctuating the cliffs. You’ll explore places that most tourists will never see, and if there’s a gentle swell we’ll practise wave riding on a secret beach.

  • PADDLE TECHNIQUE 


    Receive professional paddling instruction from our experienced, ASI trained coach. Try a range of boards to discover the best style for you and learn new techniques to increase maneuverability whilst building your confidence on the water. Finish the day back at the lodge with video coaching. View your progress and receive in-depth guidance and tips to help you progress your paddle stroke throughout the week.

  • RIVER TOUR & INTRODUCTION TO WAVE RIDING

    We’ll take you through the beautiful local countryside & small Portuguese towns to the river. At this fantastic flat water location you’ll head downstream taking in the local flora and fauna along the way. Take a picnic break on the beach followed by a lesson in wave-riding where the river meets the ocean. This unforgettable day gives the unique opportunity to spot some of the area's stunning wildlife whilst boosting your techniques and confidence.

  • SUNSET SESSION WITH UNDERWATER LIGHTS


    Away from the street lights, in the peaceful night waters of the Barragem lake with its huge dam wall, you’ll discover the nighttime beauty of the sky and stars as you’ve never seen them before. Experience this night time session with an innovative underwater lighting system attached to your board.
     

  • OPTIONAL EXTRA - MEGA SUP!

     

    Power a huge board that can take up to eight paddlers, it’s is an incredibly fun team experience! End the session with a group of smiling faces and stories to tell around the campfire.

YOUR INSTRUCTOR

 

You will be in safe hands with our experienced ASI qualified instructor Tina. Having been teaching SUP for four years, her in-depth local knowledge and attention to detail mean that you'll be in the right place for the day’s conditions and learning to the best of your abilities each day of your paddle boarding holiday. “We’ll teach you all the paddleboard skills you need, from your first balance, to manoeuvring, turning and riding waves, all in the jaw-dropping setting of the Algarve’s Southern coast." - Tina.

 

"ONE OF MY LIFETIME PEAK EXPERIENCES"

“I never fancied surfing but I couldn’t wait to try paddleboarding. Tina made it so easy! I felt completely safe as I tried out new techniques. Gazing at the sunrise through an archway as I sat floating on a board in a cave has to be one of my lifetime peak experiences. It was great to come home from a holiday feeling like I’d really achieved something.”
