Portugal surf – best spots
The Algarve has plenty to offer! 300 days of the sunshine per year, beginner-friendly waves of the Atlantic Ocean and many diversified beaches give pleasure to both beginners and advanced surfers. This is why we established our surf camp “Algarve Watersport” in Lagos in the Algarve many years ago. Not only surfers but also kitesurfers and windsurfers enjoy these excellent conditions at Portugal´s south coast. Although Tarifa and Fuerteventura in Spain and Egypt are still ranked as popular spots for kitesurfing and windsurfing, the Algarve provides the best conditions for inexperienced kitesurfers and windsurfers thanks to its steady wind and shallow lagoons. Surfing in Portugal is worth a visit, especially in the beautiful Algarve! Advanced kiteboarders and windsurfers will also discover outstanding conditions for freestyle and speed riding on the open sea in front of Lagos.
Surf camp Algarve Watersport in Portugal
Our surf camp is quite perfect for all water sports enthusiasts. Solo travellers, but also friends, groups, couples or even families with children will feel at home. You might wonder what sets us apart from other surf camps in Portugal. At our camp, you don´t have to decide between the different types of water sports. Every day you may choose between surfing, kitesurfing, windsurfing, Stand up Paddling or even wakeboarding and actually try several water sports on the same day if you like.
In addition to surfing, we are specialised in wakeboarding and Stand Up Paddling as well. In the early hours the bay of Lagos, that is only a few minutes away from the camp, offers calm and warm water. Therefore, the lagoon is ideally suited for SUP (Stand Up Paddling) as well as for wakeboarding and wake surfing. The spectacular cliffs and caves of Lagos create a unique atmosphere!
As if that weren´t enough, our surf van will take you and your surf mates to other surf spots of the west coast of the Algarve. When the Nortada wind freshens in the afternoon, all kitesurfers and windsurfers will head to the lagoon situated between Lagos and Alvor. In the evening you can look forward to an adventurous wakeboard session at the cable park before enjoying the culinary three-course menu in a relaxed and cosy atmosphere by the pool.

Surfing, kitesurfing and windsurfing without camp
It is needless to say that those water sports enthusiasts who don´t live at our surf camp, but in one of the other lovely accommodations in the Algarve, may also participate in our surf, kite, windsurf and SUP classes and day trips and may rent our surfboards and kite equipment. Sometimes we even offer a pick-up service from different places such as Albufeira, Portimao, Lagos or Sagres.
