So, book up with one of these surf camps and have a saltwater adventure of your own this summer – what are you waiting for?
Portugal is a top surfing destination for beginner and intermediate surfers. The Southwest coast, with its wide sandy beach breaks, is the perfect year-round surf destination. Lagos is the fun party town in the area, just a short drive from the beaches on the west coast. Sagres is a laid back fishing port and holiday destination right by some awesome surf spots. When it’s big and blown out in the west, there are breaks to explore on the Algarve’s sheltered south coast.
Just a quick, low-cost flight away, with a warm climate and fantastic long right hand points, it’s easy to see why Morocco has been a popular getaway for European surfers since the 1950’s. Taghazout, just north of Agadir, has more right hand points per kilometre than almost any other place on earth. The points tend to sort out the crowds and you should leave with many memorable sessions under your belt.
|Barbados is a laid back and fun surf destination, whatever your surfing ability. There are heavy breaks for more advanced surfers but plenty of good surf spots for beginners to intermediates, such as Freights Bay. One of the most well known (and a favourite of Kelly Slater’s) is Soup Bowl in Bathsheba, which is also a great place for early morning yoga on the beach.||Everyone loves Bali, but if you can imagine it 30 years ago when it was still relatively undeveloped, then that’s Rote Island today. Rote is the southernmost island of the Indonesian archipelago; it’s off the beaten track for sure, but worth the journey for those in search of a tropical paradise with good surf.|
