Portugal Trip 2018

One of the highlights of the year is our annual November trip to the Algarve. Its a real fun social trip with lots of waves and craic. Its open to all levels of surfer. The beginners go surfing with the local surf school in Portugal while the more experienced surfers go with guides from Surf co. We all meet up in the evening for meals in town, BBQs and drinks. The beginners group is for those that are happy to surf on foamys in the white water. For those looking to surf on hard boards then the guiding is the best trip. Within the guiding we normally have 2 groups. The crew that are still getting used to hard boards and are riding 8 foot boards and a more experienced group looking to ride shorter boards.

I recommend booking flights with either RyanAir or Aerlingus to Faro, which is the closest airport.

While it gets colder and darker in Ireland in November, it is still summer in Portugal. Extend your summer by going on a week long surf trip in the Algarve. We have 2 weeks to choose from

We will be there from the 4th to the 11th of November and 11th to 18th November. The trip costs €450 for the week. To book we need a €100 deposit

This trip is open to pure beginners as well as more experienced surfers.Those with a bit of experience can join the guiding package.

The guiding package is aimed at those who already have the basics and just want to find the best waves for their standard. We tend to do some coaching through video and photo analysis.

Typical day on the Algarve surf trip:

The day at the Algarve Surf School & Camp begin around 9 am with some chilled music to wake you up. When you make your way to the lounge you will find a breakfast to revive you from the night before and prepare you for a day of surfing.

Fresh rolls from the bakery, cereals, fruit, coffee and tea for your breakfast, and ham, cheese, salad and sauces for you to make a sandwich for the beach. After breakfast, around 10am we will pack our stuff together, load the surf boards on the Jeep, and drive you down to the beach. Usually this will be Praia do Amado, but we have the independence to choose from plenty of other spots nearby if the conditions are better elsewhere.

After the morning lesson, it’s time to relax your muscles and minds from surfing. Chill out at the beach, eat your lunch, or have a nap to regather your energy for the afternoon session. In the afternoon we will all meet up for dinner/BBQ etc. and a bit of craic/banter.
