More information


Surfing in Peniche began in the sixties when several unknown Australians came to town with surfboards and started to ride the local waves. Peniche locals, adventurous as they are and always ready for new challenges, didn’t want just to stay on the side and soon they tried new sport with equipment borrowed from the Australians. Since then, surfing is an integral part of life in this place, and many of the best Portuguese surfers and bodyboarders visit it. Thanks to the great location (about 90 km north of Lisbon) and a large number of spots, Peniche is an excellent destination for all surfers, from beginners to professionals.


School is going to be held by an experienced Portuguese instructor in the English language, and each day he will take you to the spot with the best conditions for your surfing skills. Wave quality depends on wind and swell directions, tides, and the size of the waves, and at the end, it depends on the potential crowd factor. Your instructor will take care to avoid crowds and find ideal conditions to catch your first waves. Peniche and its surroundings are the best regions for surfing in Portugal because of the doze surf spots situated on a relatively short stretch of the coast.

What is included in the surf school? 

  • 5 days of surf lessons – (theoretical + practical part)
  • transport to the beach
  • complete equipment – surfboard and wetsuit (you can use them all day long, not just in surf school)


Since surfing is a pretty exhausting sport, it is important to eat quality meals, and we will take care of that. Before the morning session, breakfast will be prepared (cereals, fruit, hot sandwiches etc.), and when you come back home hungry after an afternoon session, a delicious dinner will be served – every day a new specialty. If there will be some interest, there is a possibility of preparing of barbecue.


Surf house has 5 guest rooms for 2-6 persons, a fully equipped kitchen, and three bathrooms. In the lounge area, you can relax by reading a surf magazine, watching TV or DVD, surfing on free Wi-Fi internet, or just hanging out with the rest of the guests on the terrace in the back of the house.
