There’s this time of the year that the clock seems to move slower, the days are endless and weeks feel like months.

You imagine yourselves surfing, laughing, chilling around and spending some great time together.  We understand perfectly! We travel, surf, laugh, drink and chill as well. Most important, we set the complete stage for you and your best travelling mates- our Esmoriz house!

The green areas allow you and your friends to have a break from daily stress and get connected with nature. You can explore the beautiful “Barrinha” lagoon in Esmoriz- walking, with our bikes or even while experiencing a SUP tour.

After surfing or simply exploring the coastline and forest, a drink at the Parque Ambiental do Buçaquinho (Esmoriz city park) will definitely set your mood for the rest of the day- a quiet and amazing place, where besides the birds and other local animals you can hear some great music at the Cafetaria and get some drinks with your friends.

Later on, back to the house, our lovely backyard offers you the perfect stage to go stretch your body a bit and recover your strength for the next surfing session A yoga session can be the thing you need or, in alternative, a body massage can also do wonderful things to both your body and mood. 

After that, and to keep things rolling, The barbeque time is the perfect set to those endless stories about that one wave you caught or other epic ½ second moments that for sure feel like they last ages. All this with a big smile on your face and a cold beer on your hand and all your friends sharing all those positive vibes.

The sun is gone and you rewind your thoughts and thinK: “Dam I was needing this!” – surfing, friends and a great time together. This is the surf camp and beach life you deserve! And that’s why we’ll going to be there right by your side showing where to surf, splashing you in the water,  teaching you about that one move you need to improve and show you how, joining you on a drink and tasting with your friends the best local restaurants.  

Barbeque with the surfing family

And when you hear the nightlife calling out your name, there’s a couple of nice surfing vibe options to go in Esmoriz, such as the Uncle Joe’s bar (5 minutes walking from the house)- cool vibe and often with live performances. If you want to play harder, Porto is 20-25 minutes far from train. And about that we can talk hours… but let’s do it once you’re around.

Logistic wise, there’s not much to talk about! Probably your fellow surfing partners will ask you about a good deal… just tell them you found one, as we have special rates in our Esmoriz surf house for the whole house renting (max 6 persons). Then, because you want to make sure you really commit to surfing, just pick the surf package that best fits you. Then easy… book it all in two minutes and the dream is now becoming real.

See you in Esmoriz
