It's my gateway to relaxation and hard work too - don't think waves care much for you ;) One of the best things about Surfer's Camp is the freedom of doing what you want, never forced to go surfing or what other are doing. Great flexibility in terms of joining the classes, arrivals and departures, going for the bike. Rui...

I had the great chance to experience a wonderful time at Surfers Camp! In lovely Esmoriz, a small village in the north of Portugal, surfing is on! The surfhouse always made me feel right at home, with the hammocks and the chill-out area to relax in, the view to the sea right from the balcony and the weekly BBQs. Fire-/Gillmaster...

Surfer's Camp was a great experience! Rui and Miguel make sure you are doing what is best for you and not for their business. I immediately felt as though I was staying with friends rather than in a hostel. The house and rooms are very comfortable as well, making it the perfect place to get away from the stress for...

I spent a week at the surf camp. I'm really embarrassingly inept at surfing but during my time there, Rui, Miguel and Thomas were extremely helpful and really encouraging.
