Recommendations for surf schools/camps for beginner

« on: April 14 2008 03:04:00 »

I've been surfing for about 18 months or so, mostly in the Gower (but still class myself as very much a beginner!)  I have a longboard and can just about catch a broken wave and ride it to shore, but nothing more than that!  

I'd like to spend a week in Portugal late May with like minded people improving my skills and would be grateful for recommendations on good schools/camps which include accomodation and something going on in the evening too...

Cheers in advance

The algarve is what I would suggest.
Surferdream.com offers good packages.

check out www.hookedsurf.com. The surf school is based in Cascais. Great location, near surf beaches and nightlife. Friendly staff originally from the Gower!

The region in Portugal (and I would dare to say in Europe) where you have the best chance to get good waves for your level is definitely in Peniche. It's a peninsula, an almost-island, with several point-breaks and bays and a multitude of different spots in a 15min drive.
Almost all kinds of wind versus swell directions originate a surfing wave.
Also there's a large number of surfcamps, from the luxury to the most basic. Just do a search or ask for specific advice on a surfcamp in Peniche.
If on the other hand your looking more for night life and warm water, go to Sagres/Algarve.
