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 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, apart from some spending money for two evenings out in our local town of Lagos and airport transfers. A full list of inclusions and prices are 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.

SURF HOLIDAY PORTUGAL

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

LEARN TO SURF WITH US

Our guests are the center of what we do. That's why we recently moved to a stunning new lodge with lots of luxurious extras and made huge improvements with one single goal; to make sure we have the best surf holiday experience in Europe. 

We've reduced our surf course capacity to just 16 people. For you, that means the highest level of 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 4 people. This allows your instructor to give you a personal plan, carefully analyze your lessons, and track your surfing as you progress. 

At our boutique surf lodge, we now offer a higher level of service in every aspect of your holiday. Scroll down the page to get an idea of what's included in your unforgettable weekly surf package and relax comfortably in the beautiful boutique 16-person lodge in a peaceful rural environment!

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!

CONDITIONS

We can’t always promise perfect waves but we can guarantee there'll be a wave to surf somewhere every day of your holiday, something many surf destinations across Europe can't boast!  Here we have swell hitting from the Atlantic Ocean on the west coast and The Gulf of Cádiz on the south coast. These waves teamed with our coaches’ local knowledge of the area’s many beaches mean we're experts in taking advantage of pretty much any swell direction.

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

“Great teachers with lots of passion for surfing really helped to understand what surfing is about, feel secure and build up confidence. Best food and accommodation with really high quality, nice people and good vibes from first until the last day. I will definitely come back next year!” — Marieke, Oct 2019

COACHES

All of our friendly, supportive coaches are ISA (International Surfing Association) level 2 qualified or hold equivalent experience and training. This includes industry-standard lifeguarding qualifications, so you’ll be as safe as possible in the water with us. Our coaches 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.

SURF 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. Our contact details can be found here.

"EVERYTHING A SURF HOLIDAY SHOULD BE!"

"The lodge team works hard to provide a relaxing setting and delicious food. What sets Tiny Whale apart is the high-quality surf coaching - small groups, video analysis, land-based drills - responsive to the group on how little or much is wanted (we wanted it all). If you are a beginner or have been surfing for years you won’t find better coaching."

Nick, Jun 2019
