GREEN WAVE

A course designed to make you a more complete all round surfer, this is a week where surfing comes first. Strategically placed in March, May, October and November - our Greenwave weeks take place right when Portugal's best waves hit.

 

WHO'S THE WEEK FOR?

If you can pop up and ride unbroken waves without being guided, you’re ready for this course! Build your water confidence, read surf forecasts well, understand 'trimming' and learn your first proper turns and cutbacks. Greenwave weeks are all about progressing and learning new skills to help you get most out of surfing.

We’re located close to a large range of beaches on both the south coast - with swell from the Gulf of Cádiz, and the South West coast - with swell from the North Atlantic Ocean. A variety of breaks at a variety of angles including beach, point, and rivermouth breaks combined with Tariq’s intricate knowledge of the area and dedication to getting you out at peak condition times each day mean you’ll get the best possible sessions!
