SURF

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

NEW FOR 2019

Our guests are the center of what we do here at Tiny Whale. That's why this year, we've moved to a stunning new lodge with lots of luxurious extras and made huge improvements to make sure we're one of the best surf holiday providers in Europe. 

We've reduced our surf course capacity to just 12 people. For you, that means the highest level surf experience possible. You'll get unmatched surf coaching tailored to your individual needs from an ISA level 2 qualified instructor in small groups of no more than 3 people. This allows your coach to give you a personal plan, carefully analyse your lessons, and track your surfing as you progress. 

At our brand new surf lodge, we can now offer a higher level of service in every aspect of your holiday. Yes, Tiny Whale has taken a leap forward to the world of luxury & we can't wait to put even bigger smiles on faces this year! Scroll down the page to get an idea of what's included on an unforgettable week surfing with us at the all-new Tiny Whale Surf Lodge.

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, unspoiled beaches and some of the cleanest water in Europe. We're a 5-minute 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 ISA (International Surfing Association) level 2 qualified, or hold equivalent experience and training. This includes industry standard life guarding qualifications, 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 are based around tried and tested coaching techniques that get results.

LEVELS

We’ve broken down the different stages of surfing into levels. Check through the levels below to find the best course for you. If you're not sure which level you’re at, our bookings team is on hand to help you figure it out. Simply drop us a message or give us a call.

  • LEVEL 1:

    BEGINNER 

     

    If this will be your first time surfing, Level 1 is right for you. Our highly experienced team will guide you through the first stages, getting you standing on the board and teaching you vital information about handling yourself in the water. We aim to get you to beaches with small, manageable waves, gradually building your confidence through the week.

  • 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.

    ENQUIRE NOW
  • 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.

"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."

George, October 2016
