What You'll Do

With incredible surfing conditions on your doorstep, this secluded surf camp in Ericeira is the ideal place for your 7 night surf & yoga holiday in Portugal; this great surf camp has created the perfect place to meet fellow surfers & do yoga after a day in the water with top surf tuition.

Available every Saturday from 5 June - 27 November, 2021

Spend 7 nights on this surf holiday and yoga retreat in the beautifully preserved beach side town of Ericeira, with miles of beaches to explore and world class tuition at this incredibly social surf camp in sunny Portugal. Yoga is the perfect accompaniment to a day of surf, whether it is to stretch out before hand or loosen yourself up after – join in and find out why this combination is great to keep fit!

Perfect for absolute beginners to intermediate surfers, the knowledgeable instructors will have you gaining confidence, standing on your board or tackling green waves within just a few days. Keeping learning groups small, there is plenty of focus on every student so they get the tuition they need.

The same applies to yoga, all levels are welcome and you couldn’t pick a more beautiful location to relax and unwind before or after your surf for the day. Vinyasa Flow will be the main type of yoga you will practise during the holiday.

This well loved surf camp is actually a converted traditional Portuguese house that has been renovated to offer comfortable accommodation close to great amenities. Along with plenty of public and private places for you to relax in, it is also a perfect social platform. Feel free to use the BBQ and cook up dinner with new friends, grab a book and hide in a hammock, or nap on a sun lounger after a day in the water.

Had an awesome week! I stayed there with my boyfriend from Sep 12-19 2020 and could not recommend it more. We met the most amazing group of people there and just had a fantastic time and Susie and Steve, the owners, were great. We signed up for the surf and yoga package and thoroughly enjoyed both. Never felt concerned in terms of health and safety standards as they had COVID-19 safety protocols and processes in place (e.g. sanitiser everywhere, temperature checks before each surf lesson, masks in small confined places such as the drive to and from surf lessons). Steve was our surf instructor and I really felt like I progressed with my surfing under his guidance. We stayed in the Duke suite (one of the private bungalows) which had the necessary amenities you needed and is comfortable. It's less than a 5 min walk from the town and beaches and right opposite a huge supermarket. Absolutely fell in love with town! Great location, great people, great time. We are planning to come back next year and hopefully, improve our surfing and be closer to riding green waves!!!

Great vibes, Brilliant team! We took five teenagers here last week as they're at the age where they prefer activities to sightseeing. Most of us hadn't surfed before. But the surfing instruction was excellent and we did yoga every day, which is very complementary to surfing. I think what Steve and Susie have achieved in seven years is really impressive. The location of the surf school is great too, you can walk into the town centre in 10 minutes where there's loads of good restaurants. Totally recommend this.
