“Met wonderful people, caught my first green waves, made my first conscious turns, and what was something completely mind blowing I actually tried longboard dancing for the very first time and made my first tricks on it!“
Santa Cruz (google: Praia de Santa Cruz) is a small town overlooking the miles-long coast of the Atlantic. Located 50 km to the north of Lisbon, this enchanting corner still remains hidden from mass tourism. What does this mean? A coffee under 1€. Enough place for your beach towel. Surfing without a crowd of 100 people. A chance to meet locals in a natural habitat and listen to the melody of the Portuguese language.
And, of course, THESE views.
We will stay at a family-owned Surfcamp 360, which is far more than just a lovely house. It is a place where genuine hospitality and human warmth find their way through every detail.
The house with charming views of the valley boasts a fruit garden, an on-site bar and an open terrace for chillaxing gatherings. There is also a fully-equipped kitchen, where you can prepare your own meals.
We are totally in love with this place because here you get an authentic, living a la Portuguese feeling without compromising on conveniences, like a hot shower and free Wi-Fi.
Every class will be led by our two invited pro riders. Not only does it mean smaller groups of 7 persons/per instructor, but also an opportunity to learn from two different riders - each with their own array of tricks, style, philosophy.
We are happy to offer you daily yoga classes during every camp in Santa Cruz. It is a valuable complementary activity that will not only help to boost your performance on a board but also bring a pleasant relaxation and stretching following your skate and surf sessions.
Our yoga instructors will be building their practice around the needs of skaters and surfers: preparation, balance, mobility, flexibility, breathing etc. The purpose of daily yoga during the week is to support you in the main camp´s activities, so these will be general, open to every level sessions. In other words, if you are searching for a specific style of practice/level, this is not an adequate place for it.
Surf classes usually take place at our local spot. But if the conditions are not suitable, we will travel along the coast to find the perfect ones for you.
The duration of the class is 2h, plus all the logistics. You will receive the guidance and material corresponding to your level, whether you are a total beginner or a confident surfer.
Explore our surroundings with charming views of nature.
Our wonderful host Andreia will treat us with home- and lovemade breakfasts and dinners. It will be healthy and delicious meals with a Portuguese touch; every day different but always vegetarian, abundant, with high-quality and always local when possible ingredients as well as seasonality in mind.
We take into consideration most food allergies and restrictions, just send us a message!
How to get to Praia de Santa Cruz?
There are several options to get to Praia de Santa Cruz, including a group transfer, public transport, and uber/taxi. Most guests choose to take a group transfer as it’s the best price/convenience option. Once every guest bought their flights, we group them by the hour of arrival/departure so they can share the costs of the transfer from/to the airport.
