Many people have been asking us what to expect when booking the week long beginner package. Here is how a normal day at the lodge looks like.
You wake up quite early and head down to the living room where a large buffet with eggs, yogurt, muesli, fresh fruits and freshly baked bread is waiting for you. You stock up on well needed calories as well as a strong caffein boost in order to manage the day of surfing.
Pre surf preparation
While you are having breakfast our surf instructors have been down at the beach checking the conditions. They check tides, wave direction, height and winds in order to find the perfect waves for you. Depending on the conditions we either do two short, or one long lesson. So when you are full and satisfied we have a briefing of the day and you are divided into groups of no more than six students per teacher. Our instructors analyse your previous surf skills and put you with people who has similar knowledge. We also make sure that you will get the correct board for your level of surfing.
Now its time to have fun! The lesson starts with some warm up and assessment of the conditions. Your surf instructor tells you where to go and what places to avoid. For beginners classes our surf instructors ore with you in the water for your safety and comfort.
By the time the lesson is over lunch has begun at the lodge. All portions are generous in order to fill the appetite of a surfer. We recommend the burger.
Sone day of the week our instructors film a lesson. We then go through the footage on tv so that you can see what you do good and what you need to work on.
The best way to spend the afternoon is to rest up. Have a dip in the jacuzzi or hang out on our terrace. When the weather allows we have live bands and dis for the sunset. Have a cocktail here and enjoy the vibe.
End the day with a three course dinner made of ingredients from the area. Enjoy it with a glass of portuguese wine and the day is complete.
