SURF

Surf Europe’s most consistent waves with our friendly and experienced instructors. Explore the Algarve’s unspoilt beaches soaking up Portugal’s great weather all in the peaceful setting of a stunning national park.

PACKAGES

With a surf camp vibe, we offer a range of structured surf courses to suit all levels. Packages include two lessons per day, all the equipment you will need and transport to the best Algarve beaches. Make the most of our team’s expertise whilst enjoying the Algarve’s ideal waves and stunning weather.

LOCATION

Our Surf Lodge location has been carefully chosen to take advantage of two of Portugal’s best surfing coastlines, the south and southwest. Spanning 744 km², Portugal’s south-western National Park boasts idyllic countryside, unspoilt beaches and some of the cleanest water in Europe. We are 5 minutes drive from the nearest town, Lagos. Here you can find plenty of restaurants and lashings of culture amidst art-lined streets. Be sure to try the local dishes of sardines or cataplana (fish stew), and of course a pastel de nata with every coffee!

"SIMPLY AMAZING, YOU WON'T WANT TO LEAVE!"

“This was the best quality surf instruction I've had! I wasn’t expecting video coaching and it was a great bonus. I could really see the improvement in my surfing over the lessons… Great food, really lovely, attentive staff and nice, clean accommodation. It's the whole package!” — Savannah, London, Sept 2016

INSTRUCTORS

All of our friendly, supportive instructors are ASI (Academy of Surfing Instructors) qualified, or hold equivalent experience and training. This includes lifeguarding skills, so you’ll be as safe as possible in the water with us. Our instructors are trained to teach anyone from first-timers to advanced level surfers and our courses include tried and tested techniques that get results.

  • LEVEL 2:

    BEGINNER TO INTERMEDIATE

     

    So, you’ve surfed a few times before and definitely have the basics down. Now you want to improve your pop up and get into the green waves. Level 2 provides the coaching you need to get ‘out back’. You’ll learn essential surf etiquette and advice for safety in the water, all the while honing your skills towards an intermediate level.

  • LEVEL 3:

    GREEN WAVE RIDERS

     

    This is our intensive, intermediate course - ‘Green Wave Riders’. If you’ve already got your confidence up and are happy in green waves but you want to perfect your pop-ups, get to grips with a few turns and cut backs, and generally catch more waves on your sessions, this is the course for you. We will train you to choose safe places to surf, forecast the conditions and feel comfortable going out on your own as an independent surfer.

  • LEVEL 4:

    ADVANCED COACHING WEEKS

     

    You’re confident ‘out back’, have a great pop-up, and some basic cut backs and turns. Now you're looking to advance your skills. This course trains you in improving turns, duck diving, positioning, speed, control, cutbacks and a variety of other techniques. Video coaching throughout the week from our advanced coach Jan means you can monitor your progress, seeing exactly how and where you need to improve. Getting to the best waves of the day is essential for this course. Whether that’s a 6am dawnie or a sunset session, Jan will get you to the right beach at the right time to take advantage of the best waves.

KIDS LESSONS

For kids aged 5-12, we offer specially tailored, dedicated lessons. We’ll take them to fun-sized, small waves in the safest areas possible.

Getting kids started early with surfing is great for building confidence, independence, and a healthy respect for the sea. It also does a good job of using up all that seemingly endless energy for the day!

Lessons have a strict ratio rule of 1 instructor to a maximum of 4 kids. So long as your child has basic swimming skills they are ready to get learning. We have all the right equipment here waiting for them.

 

"EVERYTHING A HOLIDAY SHOULD BE!"

"The Tiny Whale Lodge was a spectacular place to visit and I could really see the improvement in my surfing during the lessons. The staff were always very helpful and accommodating, it's a great chance to meet interesting people from all over. The lodge had a lovely, amenable atmosphere that would congregate around the pool during the sunny days and spill over into the bar in the afternoon. The range of activities offered were endless and The climate is unbeatable for a quick getaway from the UK. The Algarve is packed with amazing Portuguese culture, breathtaking beaches and cheap pints of local beer."
