Organizer: SURF EXPERIENCE
THE SURF EXPERIENCE -
THE ORIGINAL SURF COMPANY FOUNDED IN 1992- FOR THE PURE LOVE OF SURFING
STILL RETAINS THAT ENERGY AND CONCEPT TO THIS DAY!
We are super stoked & humbled to the fact that we are the first ever surf school in Lagos, with more than 23 years’ experience.
Being based in Lagos, and especially in the southwest corner of the Algarve coast, we are in close contact to swells from all angles. This area is ranked in the top 3 receptors of swell in the world- yup, the world!
TSE - boasts one of the best and most consistent coaching teams, taking you through all the levels of your surfing career.
We aim to take you to the best spot on any given day to suit your needs as we utilize over 100 years of collective local knowledge.
All beach crew members are qualified FPS or ASI instructors, and all own full beach lifeguard awards.
Mix this with your choice of accommodation, nightlife, local gastronomy and the ultimate hosts to take you through your stay, and you will have THE SURF EXPERIENCE of a lifetime.
LOCATION & ACCOMMODATION:
The west coast of Portugal still remains protected as the "Costa Vicentina" and being a natural reserve, any development is minimal or zero. Spectacular sheer cliffs form insane eye candy, whilst the remaining dirt tracks to certain beaches still give us a sense of adventure in the 4x4s.
Beaches, points and reefs can all feature in your stay if the conditions are right.
And don´t worry, if you are learning we have plenty of spots to cater for your growth!
We are based in the central Lagos itself, a hop n’ skip away from some of the greatest restaurants on planet humanoid. The nightlife is one of the eight wonders, and in the summer there are a bunch of live and electronic events that are worth attending.
We offer several choices of joints to stay at while with us; ranging from a stay at the now legendary Surfhouse, to super dope & quiet ensuite Pensao rooms and comfortable 5 star boutique bling.
Through the majority of the season we run the surf school and surf safaris. We always keep limited numbers of guests, making it all a bit more flexible and mobile. If there’s a big diversity within the group and the conditions are good for beginners somewhere, and another beach is better suited for more advanced surfers- we split up to give our guests the best possible surfing experience.
All returning customers from starting level and up will all feel they are advancing!
