Algarve Surf School

We offer Lessons, Surf Camps and Surf Trips, as well as low-cost and fun Hostel accommodation in the surfers' town of Sagres and backpackers' paradise of Lagos, Portugal.

Beginner Surfers

Whether you have never surfed before, tried a couple of times or want to better your basics, this level is what you’re looking for.

Meet us at the beach or catch a ride in one of our surf vans. If you’re staying between the Lagos and Sagres area we can pick you up from our own hostels (free) or other accommodations (+5€) and take you surfing for the day. This is a fun and inexpensive way to try out surfing.
