HOW ARE THE ESMORIZ SURF CONDITIONS?
In two words: relaxed and overwhelming! You can simply enjoy our Esmoriz surf camp experience by putting your wetsuit on and hit the closest spot, or join the team and discover an empty beach in the protected forest looking for some nice waves. There are a lot of surf spots around: beach breaks and point breaks that hit on a sandy surface. Even though conditions change fast in each spot, usually when one is not so good there’s a couple of new ones starting to pump! Summer swells / small waves season are a more recommendable time for beginners. But make no mistakes: if you booked a surf package or even just a couple of lessons, we’ll take you where the best conditions are, which might be from Esmoriz up to Espinho, which is only 8 km north. We proud ourselves on a close approach and a personalized relationship with our visitors, kind of a family vibe, which extends to the surfing lessons and our surfer/teacher ratio. Knowing the place like no-one, we’ve settled Surf Packs that serve our surf camp visitors’ best interests!
