Our camp base is located on the 3-star camping site Valdovino - in full sight and only 5 minutes by foot off the ocean shore "Playa de Frouxeira". It offers its own cafe, restaurant, super market, very neat bathrooms, and W-LAN under shadow-spending trees.
The common tent is the meeting point for taking refreshments out of the common fridge whilst seeing movies, playing darts or poker, or just to talk about surfing.
If there's still energy left, you can always spend it while playing basketball on the camping site's own court, go indo- or skateboarding, or discover the beautiful landscape on one of our bikes. Our chill-out area is equipped with hammocks, so you can relax your body and soul. After our dinner it's out to the bars in nearby Valdovino for a beer or two, or just a movie in our common tent.
At Camino Surfcamp, we don't see surfing as pure water sports, but rather as a sporty and mental approach to having fun in the nature.
Fun is the top priority. Gliding along a glittering, moving mountain of water and taking in the waves energy - it's kick and relaxation all in one!
Our professional teachers show you how to quickly make improvements and easily master the art of surfing.
Experience, enthusiasm, and an unconditional love towards surfing are Camino Surfcamps trademarks, and to assure our possibilities, we see it as a commitment towards nature to maintain and spread our awareness and respect. We are supported by well-known organizations surfrider-foundation and carbonfund.org, and we are supporting Fair Trade among others. What's more, you get to test ecologically produced balso wood surf boards.
