Details

We are running a Surf and Yoga trip this year to the Algarve, YAY!!!

Our trips to Portugal are always a lot of fun and a great way to get some winter sun and stretch out the summer that little bit further (no pun intended!). This time we have a schedule especially for our Yogis, with hours of fun in the water every day and post-surf yoga each afternoon.
FYI - Don't forgot to bring your travel mat!

Dates: 3rd to the 10th of November.
Cost: €499 for the week.
Deposit: €100 deposit to reserve your spot.

We have a transfer leaving Faro to Lagos that meets the Ryan Air Flight from Dublin on Sunday the 3rd of November. We can arrange other transfers on request.

This trip is open to beginners as well as more experienced surfers. We run a beginners option for those who want softboards and want lessons and an improver option for those looking to surf hard boards and progress there surfing. More info below

BEGINNERS:

We will have surf lessons with the local surf school from 10am to 3pm each day, with a packed lunch at the beach. Conditions are usually quite different to home, so we will learn from the local instructors on the beach first of all, then in the water the lessons will be on soft boards and start off in the whitewater.

Beginner Trip includes:

7 nights shared accommodation in surf lodge with breakfast
5 days of surf lessons, including board and wetsuit hire
5 yoga sessions
Daily transfers to the beach
Lots of craic/BBQs with your surf trips/surf co hosts

IMPROVERS/INTERMEDIATE:

For those with more experience, that want bigger waves and hard-boards, there is a guiding option.
Within the guiding we normally have 2 levels -
1) Those that have done lessons, are comfortable on green waves and want to progress onto hard boards.
2) Those that have been riding hard-boards, are comfortable out back, want to improve their wave selection/technique etc.
Don't stress about this too much as we tend to be fluid with the groups out there.

Guiding package includes:

7 nights shared accommodation in surf lodge with breakfast
6 days of surf guiding/transfers to the beach
***Note: Wetsuit and board hire is not included, but can be sourced locally. Budget 70euros for a board.
5 yoga sessions
Video Analysis session
Lots of craic/BBQs with your surf trips/surf co hosts
