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.
Longboard dancing is our main focus with 4 guided lessons of 2 hours. In such a short time you will explore basics that will get you riding.
We are happy to offer you 2 yoga classes during the Longboard Weekend in Santa Cruz. It is a valuable 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: preparation, balance, mobility, flexibility, breathing etc. The purpose of yoga during the weekend is to support you in the camp´s activities, so these will be general, open to every level sessions.
Exploring Santa Cruz
On our free time we will experience Praia de Santa Cruz together and disconnect from your everyday.
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.
