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€.
