CONFIRMATION

Thank you for your interest in coming to stay & experience a week surfing with us!

Our office hours are 9am - 5pm GMT and we aim to respond to all inquires within 4 hours

 

 

In the mean time here's some useful information about a trip with us:

Our packages run from Saturday to Saturday

We know surf holidays are the best they can be when there’s a solid start and finish date to the groups trip for the week. You can arrive a day earlier (Friday) and leave a day later (Sunday) if there’s flight options for these days that are more convenient for you.

 

We’re serious about surf coaching!

Don’t worry you’re not signing yourself up for a week of 6am starts and intensive paddling drills! We just want to provide the best possible weeks coaching you’ll ever receive, and that includes highly qualified and dedicated surf coaches, a tailored surf coaching plan for the week just for you, plenty of video coaching (can be painful to watch, but so powerful for improvement) and a variety of modern techniques to make you a better and more knowledgeable surfer.

 

Our Surf Lodge 

We’re not your normal surf camp. We’ve upgraded our accommodation & food offering from previous years and are gradually updating our website to reflect all the changes. Forget cramped dorms & squashed private rooms and think sleek, stylish & airy boutique hotel. More info & pictures on our new lodge plus any of our current deals can be found by following us on Facebook & Instagram.

 

What’s included and pricing   

Virtually everything you’ll need is included for your trip apart from some spending money for two evenings out in our local town of Lagos. A full list of what’s included plus the pricing is featured at the bottom of the package you are interested in on our website.

 

And finally….

We know booking holidays can be tricky and it’s sometimes nice to speak to a real person. 7 days a week from 9am-5pm we have a knowledgeable team available if you need to chat with us at any point.

The theory, forecasting, equipment and safety lessons combined with hours of practice time in the water will have you surfing better, for longer with icreased confidance. Check out the what’s included on the course and more info on the course designer below.

Tiny Whale is perfectly located to take advantage of swell from the Gulf of Cádiz on the south coast and from the North Atlantic Ocean on the west. We will monitor the conditions with you each day aiming for the clean, waist to chest high waves and making sure you experience the best waves possible on your course.

"UNFORGETTABLE, PRICELESS WEEK!"

“This was the best surf training I ever had in my 8 years of surfing. Inês has a lot of tips and tricks, pushes you and makes you feel safe. Prepare to put in the work, arrive fit and you’ll profit from her training. I absolutely recommend this Package for girls who already feel comfortable paddling for waves. Thanks Tiny Whale!” — Philine, 2017
