- What should i bring with me for the travel?

We suggest to bring for the beach: your bikini / swimming shorts, beach towel. For men it is comfy to have a swimming shorts - easier to put the wetsuit (but board shorts would be fine too). Remember, that the sun is very strong, so don't forget a hat or a cap and sun cream.
If you have a chance - buy a special thick sun cream for the face, with zinc or minerals - it would protect your skin while you spending many hours in the water. We also sale such a suncreams at the camp.
Since the surf resort located too close to the ocean, don´t be surprised that it is getting chill by the evening time. Get a piece of your warm cloth: sweatshirt, hoody or jacket on board!

- When it is the best time to travel?

All the seasons have their own benefits.
Summer is always hot and busy. During July, August and September the beaches are much more crowded, parties are full on, bars are packed. Happy times)). Waves are smaller all over the coastline. Both young people and Families with kids love this time of the year.
Come in the Spring time, if you want to enjoy the beauty of the nature (flowers are blooming, fields are getting greeny, rains happen) and chilled and uncrowded surf. 
Autumn is a great time for the beach: months of September and October provide with the hottest days of the year and the warmest water! Waves are getting a bit bigger since October, so get ready to travel time to time to get the right spot for the surf!
Prepare for good weather and uncrowded surf in the Winter. Temprature is about 17º degrees during the day, so, yes yes, find the place for your bikini or board shorts while packing.

- For which levels do you provide the surfing courses? Do you have surf lessons for Beginners / Intermediates / Advanced?

We split up the surf levels by those categories:
  • Beginner “Fresh meat”. (I never tried to surf, I tried 1-3 times).
  • Beginner - Intermediate. (I surfed 1 to 2 weeks, I have consistant pop up and can control the board).
  • Intermediate. (I surfed more than 2 weeks in total, at least 1 year ago last time. I have surfed my first green waves).
  • Advanced. (I am confident riding green waves, I am learning ride left and right, make bottom turns and cut backs).
We have different programs, depend on your experience, you can check here. At the first day you will be evaluate and your surf coach will figure out which points to work on with you.
You will be able to move to the next level, if you are ready. If you have any tequenical mistakes you will be able to join the previous level (in the white water) for correction. 
Every time you will be with your surf coach close by to take care of your progression and evaluation.
Our surf coaches take it seriously and the idea is to make a confident and independent surfer out of our students. Our goal is not to have fun catching waves all together (that's as well, its a part of a game:), but also to improve your surfing skills, revealing the problematic points and working progressively on the details.

What is the average age for people to come to your surfcamp? What are the countries most of the guys come from? Do you have solo travelers?

Our usual age for the guests is since 24 till 40 years old. Maybe middle 30ies is the middle age. We have more young people or families coming during June / July / August as well.
Usually we have a lot of solo travelers, sometimes couples or group of friends, but at the end everyone is getting along together as one big group. Our guests are mostly from the Europe, but also can be Canadians, Americans, guests from Azia, can be Australians as well, etc.
We love our guests coming with the same kind of interest, people that love nature, that love spending time active, with friends and with a good ambient!

- I am a Total Beginner. Are the waves ok for me in October / November / December / etc.?

Yes, the waves are always ok out their, the trick is to find the right spot (beach) for the right level. 
For the beginners we start the lessons on the white water - so we call the foam, that appears after the wave broke. Wanna say the waves shouldn't be that small if we want them to provide with the good powerful foam that you can ride on. More about the surf programm right here.
If it is a big day, big waves, we drive to protected bay or south coast and find a good suitable spot for the beginners.
Never you will be thrown in the routh conditions with no chance to survive:)

- Do you prepare a Vegetarian / Pescatarian / Vegan / Gluten-free menu?

We offer the following oiptions of menu:
  • Regular. (I eat Everything)
  • Pescetarian. (I don’t eat meat, I do eat fish)
  • Vegetarian. (I don’t eat meat, I don’t eat fish)
  • Gluten free diet. (I am intolerant to gluten)
We offer Gluten-free menu for extra 50EUR (we charge extra for the gluten-free products, as bread, cereals, pasta, cookies, etc., which are very expensive in our region.) Alternatively you can also bring your products with you.
Unfortunately we do not offer Vegan meals in general, as our plates for dinner can include cheese (like Bechamel in Lasagne) or eggs (like in Legumes à Brás).

- How much extra money shouId I bring with me?

That depends on your drinking ability) Kidding
But, it is true - we have a bar in the camp, so the drinks will be extra. Just the first Welcome Beer is upon us!
We have a dinner on Friday night, which is not included in the pack, so if you choose then to diner at the local restaurant - count 15€ - 25€ depend on what you get.
Apart of that there is no much of expenses. The transfers, all the food, water, etc. are included in the Package.

- I am an Experienced surfer, what do you have to offer me? 

We offer Intermediate and Advanced surf lessons.
We have a great coach from Algarve, we say he is the most recognizable and it is true, that all the other surf schools know his name - Luis Marreiros from Vale Figueiras. He works detailed on the mistakes, push the limits, inspire the student, always being attentive and controlling the situation. Many students return just to have classes with him.
We also film the lessons and check the mistakes back home!

- Is it cold in the Winter?

The weather is warm in the winter. Want to say it is about 17º - 19º in the winter, in the coldest day it can get 14º. 
The sun is hot, also in the winter, you can feel how it is burning. The wind is cold, if it is a north wind. If you are at the beach, find a nice protected spot and you can get undressed and catch sun even in the windy day!
Water is about 15º in the winter, it is totally enough to have 4/3 mm wetsuit or even new 3/2 mm. It is true, that water temprature depends on the winds and swells, so easy you can have warmer water in February, and cooler in July.
If you thought of having a legendary New Year's Eve - check out there for the package we made up!

- Do you cancel the surf lessons for the reason of rain /bad weather/ stormy or dangerous conditions? What happens if the lessons are cancelled?

There is almost no any rainy days during summer season in Algarve, but some storms can happen (usually in March / April, late October / November).
We do not cancel the surf lessons in case of a bad weather only. If it rains, we still go to the water, as we gonna get wet anyway:) We can make a little break in between the lessons or make one long session, so our guests don't get cold on the beach.
We hold the right to cancel the surf lessons  in case of dangerous conditions (storms, lightnings, huge waves, strong winds), with potential risk to the lives of guests. Even if  its hard to find a place to go, we try our best to search for the waves / beach, which can be more protected.
In the last case we offer to make a tour around, see the big waves, make some touristic tour around (see Aljezur castle, see Sagres lighthouse, make some shopping in souvenir shops, etc.).
There is no refund in case of a surf lessons cancellation for the dangerous weather conditions.
