The Surf Experience

WE ARE SUPER STOKED & HUMBLED TO BE THE FIRST HERE, AND THE POINT BEING WE STUMBLED ACROSS THIS LIL´PUPPY..

I GUESS THE DIFFERENCE COMPARED TO US AND OTHERS IS THE ESSENCE OF HOW IT STARTED. WE DID IT FOR LOVE NOT MONEY. IN FACT WE DID IT WITHOUT A SECOND THOUGHT, I LIE , WE HAD NO IDEA WHAT WE WERE DOING!!

WE´D MET LIFELONG FRIENDS, WE´D FED AND DRUNK LIKE KINGS, FULL OUTTA BODY STOKAGE FROM ALL THE LEVELS OF SURFING WE WENT THROUGH AND DID IT IN SOME OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL LOCATIONS. WHO THE HELL DOESN´T WANT TO EXPERIENCE THIS?! - THE SURF EXPERIENCE WAS BORN.

THIS BASIC ETHIC HAS BEEN INSTALLED IN EVERYONE THAT HAS EVER WORKED FOR US. FROM GETTING PICKED UP, INSTRUCTED AND HOSTED YOU FEEL PART OF A FAMILY. NO EGOS.

BEING BASED IN LAGOS AND ESPECIALLY IN THE SOUTH-WEST CORNER OF THE ALGARVE WE ARE IN CLOSE CONTACT TO SWELLS FROM ALL ANGLES. THIS PART OF THE WORLD BEING IN THE TOP 3 RECEPTORS OF SWELL ON THE PLANET, YUP, PLANET EARTH.

THE WEST COAST STILL REMAINS PROTECTED AS THE "COSTA VICENTINA" AND BEING A NATURAL RESERVE ANY DEVELOPMENT IS MINIMAL OR ZERO. SPECTACULAR SHEAR CLIFFS FORM INSANE EYE CANDY WHILST THE REMAINING DIRT TRACKS TO CERTAIN BEACHES STILL GIVE US A SENSE OF ADVENTURE IN THE 4X4S.

BEACHIES, POINTS AND REEFS CAN ALL FEATURE IN YOUR STAY IF THE CONDITIONS ARE RIGHT. DON´T WORRY, IF YOU ARE LEARNING WE HAVE PLENTY OF SPOTS TO CATER FOR YOUR GROWTH.

IN LAGOS ITSELF WE ARE CENTRAL AND A HOP N SKIP AWAY FROM SOME OF THE GREATEST RESTAURANTS ON PLANET HUMANOID. THE NIGHTLIFE IS ONE OF THE EIGHT WONDERS OF THE WORLD AND IN THE SUMMER THERE ARE A BUNCH OF LIVE AND ELECTRONIC EVENTS.

THERE ARE A CHOICE OF JOINTS TO STAY WHILE WITH US RANGING FROM THE, NOW LEGENDARY, SURFHOUSE TO SUPER DOPE & QUIET GUESTHOUSES WITH PRIVATE ROOMS OR 3 STAR HOTEL IN THE PARALLEL STREET. ALL WITH WIFI.

WE NEVER HAVE A CREW AT ANY TIME WITHOUT SOMEONE WHO IS NOT A RETURNING CUSTOMER. WE LOVE THAT. 5 COUPLES HAVE MET HERE AND THEN GOT MARRIED. WHAT AN INSANE FACTOID!!

THROUGH THE MAJORITY OF THE SEASON WE RUN THE SURF SCHOOL AND SURF SAFARIS. WE KEEP LIMITED NUMBERS MAKING IT ALL A BIT MORE FLEXIBLE AND MOBILE. IF IT´S GOOD SOMEWHERE TO LEARN AND ANOTHER BEACH FOR ADVANCED WE ADAPT.

ALL RETURNING CUSTOMERS FROM THE STARTING LEVEL WILL ALL FEEL THEY ARE ADVANCING AND THERE IS A CONCERTED EFFORT TO DO SO.

YOGA AND PILATES PROMO WEEKS WILL ALWAYS BE ON OFFER THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.

IN THE WINTER WE RUN THE REGAL SURF BOOTCAMPS. PRO TRAINING FOR NON PRO FOLK. TAKING SURFERS OF INTERMEDIATE AND ADVANCE LEVELS TO HIGHER LEVELS IN AN INTENSE WEEK OF FILM TRAINING COMBINED WITH MASSAGE AND SPAS.

WE ARE THE OFFICIAL ASI SURFSCHOOL HERE IN PORTUGAL AND HOST A SURF TRAINING, INSTRUCTORS LEVEL ONE & RLSSA BEACH LIFEGUARDING ALL BOUND UP IN AN AWESOME 2 WEEK PACKAGE. BEST PART? THE WEATHER HERE IN JAN/FEB CAN BE SENSATIONAL.
