Surf camp Algarve

The summer is the busiest season for most of the surf camps. Considering this, I’m glad that they are all so welcoming and able to make room for me to stay at their places. However, the surf camp in Algarve were fully booked even before I got in touch with them, so me and my girlfriend stayed at a hostel not far from the lodge.

Even though we didn’t live with the rest of the people at the lodge and we joined on the third day of surf school, we felt as a part of the familiar group right from the start. The camp managers, Sarah and Aldo, and the whole staff were everything you can wish for in a host. They made you breakfast, sandwiches for lunch on the beach and dinners at the lodge, every weekday!

Friday evening, we went to a barbecue at the local bar where everyone got to see pictures taken of them surfing and we got to hang out, talking about the great memories of the week.

On Saturday, we went sightseeing to discover the nearby areas. Among other places, we went up to the Castle of Aljezur and to a viewpoint over Arrifana beach. The environment was breathtaking!

Once again, I had to say goodbye to some new friends. But I have a feeling that I’ll meet them again. It’s going to be hard to stay away from a place like this! The tough life as a vagabond, photographing surfer continues…

    Nick, it was fun to surf with both of you. As one of the guests I can recommend the surf camp. Aldo and Sarah made us very welcome and the coaching on the beach and in the water has helped improve my families surfing skills a great deal.

    • Hi Mike! Yeah, it was great meeting you and your family. Hope that you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Algarve. And keep up the good work in the back of the breaks, I’ll practice the rest of my trip to catch up with you out there! // Nick
