Welcome to Algarve Watersport, the friendliest multi sport surf camp and school in Portugal.
Both guests staying at Kite House, our Kite & Surf Camp House, or at one of the surrounding hotels or accommodations in Lagos are welcome to join our water sport activities and courses!
In the morning our surf school will take you to the best and most beautiful surf spots the west and south coast of the Algarve has to offer. You might instead decide to join us for a wakeboard session behind the Mastercraft wake boat or in the wake cable park.
As soon as the Portuguese Nortada wind, the friendly kite instructors from our kite school will take you the kite lagoon of Lagos. In the shallow, flat water and with strong wind you will learn kitesurfing at one of the best kitesurfing spots Portugal has to offer the Ria do Alvor. This beautiful lagoon is also perfect to learn windsurfing. For both types of wind sports you will find the latest equipment from Cabrinha Kiteboarding and Neil Pryde / JP Windsurfing.
Rather up for something easy and relaxed? How about a SUP trip exploring the cliffs, caves and grottos along the coast of Lagos?

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.
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.
Algarve Watersport specialises in boardsports. Our excellent skilled, experienced and certified instructors always make the use of top-quality and modern equipment in order to offer the highest quality and safety standards for surfing in the Algarve for you at all times. Improve your level of surfing and get coached in well-structured courses by friendly surf teachers!
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.
In addition to unforgettable memories of the Algarve and new water sports experiences, we also want you to take home something which helps you bridging the time until your next surfing or kite session. Yoga and Pilates are a great choice to harmonise your body, mind and soul. Many water sports professionals, such as Kelly Slater (9x Surf Champion), Kristine Boese (9x kiteboarding champion) and Larid Hamilton (Big Wave Surf Legend), have discovered Yoga and Pilates as an optimal balance training.
You will not only improve your strength, flexibility, coordination, balance and breathing volume. The exercises and techniques also help you achieve an increased calmness in stressful situations, as well as a faster recovery and prevention of injuries after an exhausting session on the water.
We offer you a free Yoga session per week which starts every Wednesday morning at 9 am by the pool.
