Presentation

Surf camp Porto

Surf camp Porto is located in the Costa Verde region in the northernmost part of Portugal. The camp is ideal for you who wants to combine chilled surfing days by the seaside with high pulse party nights in an exciting city full of interesting people, sights and activity.

The port wine city of Porto is a beautiful, lush green, hilly city, with heaps of old impressive buildings, cool restaurants, chilled wine bars and amazing sights. The surf camp is only a short way from the city centre, and even closer to the Matosinhos beach where you find great surfing conditions for beginners as well as more advanced surfers all year round.

Summers in the Costa Verde region tend to be sunny, dry and clear, with an average temperature of 25ºC, and the warm weather conditions last well into September. The winter is colder (around 13 ºC) and it sometimes rains a bit, but it rarely persists for longer periods.

Winter and early spring is when the biggest swells occur. During the summer months the swell is generally smaller, which makes it an ideal time for beginners who are just starting to surf.

Surfari

Guided surf trips

Surfari is a great option for more experienced surfers. Every day there is a different swell, a different wind etc. This doesn't matter if you book a surfari. Every day you will be accompanied by a professional local surf guide who will show you the best breaks of the region, places that just the locals know, taking you to discover new surf spots where you can enjoy perfect waves surrounded by beautiful untouched nature.

There are lots of different surf spots where you can end up surfing if you book a surfari. For example you can end up surfing the powerful waves of “Espinho” ripping the long mellow waves of “Matosinhos” or getting barreled at the left hand river break of “DOURO’s cabedelo”.

The following is included in the surfari:

  • Accommodation at the surf camp
  • Surfaris with a local guide, five days per week (material not included)
  • Transport to the best wave of the day (an additional fee of 0,30 EUR/ km is shared by the Surfari participants)
  • Breakfast
  • Pick up/ drop off at Porto Airport/ train station/ bus station

Surfaris are available all year round. The best swells come in late winter and early spring, but there are good waves to be explored the rest of the year as well.
