Whether it is your first time or you have already surfed a few times before but can´t catch a green wave yet, this is for you! You will learn or have a refresh of the basics of surfing. We will teach you and guide you towards riding your first waves by yourself in a safe environment and aim to ride your first green waves by the end of the week.
This is the basic package included when you book a shared or private tipi.
From 447€ pp/week (low season).
If you can already ride a green wave by yourself, then this is the package for you. You will perfect your surfing skills with lessons in smaller groups for intermediate and advanced surfers. We focus on the areas you want to improve: perfecting the take-off, turning, doing the bottom turn, and riding the green wave. This add-on to the basic package includes a more hands-on coaching approach with video analysis and 2 surf skate sessions.
Surf and Yoga go hand in hand. Yoga helps to increase core strength and flexibility which gives you more balance, power and ultimately improves your surfing. It´s also a nice relaxing time where you are in touch with the elements as we either have the yoga classes on the beach or a quiet area in the camp. This package includes 4 yoga classes and can be added to the basic package as well as the progression package.
50€ for 4 Yoga lessons.
You can choose between two different glamping tent options: Our spacious shared tipi tents are 3.50 meters high and 6m in diameter and have 4 or 5 single beds. Our private tipi tents are 4m in diameter and have a double bed that accommodates couples or 2 friends. Both tent options come with very comfortable memory foam mattresses, bedding and linen, electricity, lights, and a set of dishes for every person.
Our Surf Camp is very close to Porto and Porto airport, very easy to access. It is also very close to the beach, it's only 7 mins walk. The camping park has a nice swimming pool, a few football, volleyball and tennis courts.

Where is the Surf Camp?
Our surf camp is based in the north of Portugal, on a little beach village called Lavra in the municipality of Matosinhos just north of Porto. Click here for Google maps link
Our surf camp is inside the camping park of Orbitur Angeiras, a campsite certified and recognized by the quality of its services and its facilities. It is located about 7 mins walk of the beach. It has shower blocks with continuous hot water, a mini-market, restaurant, bar, free swimming-pool for users, and football, volleyball and tennis courts. Check the camping park website here.
How do I get to the surf camp?
The closest airport is Porto Airport (OPO) which is about 10 mins drive from the camp.
The easiest and quickest way to get to the surfcamp is by car or taxi. Once you arrive at the campsite Orbitur Angeiras, go to the reception and let them know that you’re staying with I Surf Portugal surf camp, they will guide you to the surf camp. In the evening, you will meet with the rest of the crew and the other guests to enjoy a welcome meal together!
Taxi from Porto Airport (easiest and quickest): There are always many taxis at the airport. You can get a taxi from there directly without booking. If you prefer booking one in advance you can always use the Uber app. The price of a taxi is between 10€ and 15€.
Public transport from Porto Airport or Porto center (longest): Although it is not far at all, it is quite complicated and long to get to the surf camp by public transport as you have to get to Porto center by metro from the airport and then take a bus (which has many stops before reaching the final destination).
From the airport, take the metro (purple line) to "Sete Bicas". From there take the bus line 104 to Orbitur Angeiras. You can click here to have more details.
Arriving by car: If you arrive by car, enter the following address into your navigation system: Camping Orbitur Angeiras, Rua de Angeiras - Lavra, 4455-039 Matosinhos.
You can park your car on the external car park of the campsite or inside the campsite, both come with additional costs payable upon arrival directly to the camping park. Click here for Google maps link.
