When itʼs windy, sign up for Kitesurf lessons with Wayke Up, a great local kite school that gives lesson in the nearby Obidos Lagoon – the perfect spot to learn and progress in kitesurfing: a huge calm stretch of salt water 6km long and 1.5km wide, just 20 minutes north of the Lodge.
Our spot is one of the best in Europe with flat water, reliable wind and beautiful nature landscape. You can kitesurf here all year round, but March – October is the best season.
Our Kitesurf instructors, extreme sports fanatics, are internationally graduated, and will get you on the board in the fastest and safest way possible. We speak a multitude of languages (English, Portuguese, Spanish, French and others) to teach you with an adapted pedagogic style.

Lessons normally happen in the afternoon, from 2-6pm, for the best wind conditions.
