The Local Waves
We are located within walking distance from two fun-to-ride beach breaks in Praia da Areia Branca, Lourinhã.
Peniche & Baleal
The Mecca of surfing in Europe
The fact that we are also located so close to the peninsula of Peniche and Baleal, makes it extremely easy and flexible to always get the perfect offshore wind conditions, even when we don´t have favourable winds right at home. No matter which direction the wind or swell is blowing that day, within a 10 minute drive we will drive you to a place with perfect surfing conditions.
Our Surf Lessons
Praia da Areia Branca is the place where we surf most of the times – beach breaks, point breaks, mixed bottom waves, river mouths, slabs, there’s all kinds of waves available!
Before surf, we will lead a brief introduction with everyone, explaining the gear, provide all the equipment as well as explanations on how to position yourself on the board and how to paddle and handle the board.
After you get to know the basics we will then start with clearing the break area and learn how to deal with white water waves. Peniche might not the fanciest spot on the Portuguese coast, but its undoubtedly the most renowned surfing area in Portugal.
Originally an island, this narrow spit of land contains an obscene amount of wave variety that can provide perfect surf conditions with a consistency that puts to shame some famous turquoise waters surf destinations.
