     Here are the most common questions from our guests where you might find useful info to help you plan your surf holiday. Feel free to contact us anytime in case you do not find the info you are looking for.

    Should I bring my own board?

    When attending the SurfCamp Pack all the equipment needed is included. If you book Bed & Breakfast only, there’s the possibility of renting a board or other equipment that you need.
    In both options, you can bring your own equipment if preferred.

    Can access the surf equipment given at any time?

    Yes! Once signed in, you will have access to your own surf gear for the entire time. You will be responsible for your gear, meaning you’ll have to transport it to and from the beach on the day of your lessons and return it to the shop at the end.

    Is the Surf Camp Porto still open after Corona?

    Unfortunately we had to close our surf hostel in Porto due to the Covid-19 pandemic and it hurts our hearts = (
    The owners of the house have confirmed to us that they would not have extended our lease, so that we would have exactly 2.5 years left since Corona started and the risk was simply too great for us!
    The tendency to search for destinations where fewer people gather and the excellent conditions available at the Surf House in Esmoriz have led us to the decision to concentrate our surf camps in one location.
    A huge thank you to all of our dear guests, partners and friends who have helped and supported us with this second Surfivor project for over 7 years!
    A special thank you goes to the excellent team Surfivor Porto: Tiago, Bruno, Viktorija and all the volunteers and workaways who helped us. It couldn’t have been so good without you.

    How do I book?

    Book online here, or contact us. We are happy to book you in via email or on the phone as well.

    What is the best time to surf in Portugal?

    If you are looking for bigger waves and a more challenging Surf experience we recommend late winter to early spring, with waves typically measuring 2-4.5m or 6-15ft but that doesn’t mean summer doesn’t provide its fair share of great waves too. This time of year is more appropriate for beginners because the waves tend to be gentler measuring around 1-1.5m or 3-5ft.

    Do I have transport to the Surf Camp from the airport?

    Surf Hostel Esmoriz: Is only 35km away from Porto’s Airport, making it easily accessible via public transport.

    Guests also have the possibility to book our airport shuttle service on their arrival and departure days. (not included in the Surf Holiday Pack)

    I have never surfed before. Can I still attend the Surfcamp?

    At Surfivor we offer beginner and intermediate classes all year round. So if you have never stood on a surfboard before, our friendly and qualified coaches will have you surfing in no time.

    For those surfers who already have some surfing knowledge under their belt, we also offer intermediate courses, to take your skills to the next level.

    What if I want to attend the Surf Camp Portugal on other days?

    The Holiday Pack Program is scheduled specifically from Sunday to Sunday. If you want to attend the SurfCamp on other days you can purchase the accommodation and lessons individually and for as long as you want.

    Besides surfing what other activities can I do?

    We are committed to make your holidays a relaxed and comfortable experience as can be.

    Besides Surfing, you can find a wide variety of activities such as Yoga, Bicycle tours, Beach walks, City Trips, Parties and BBQ’s.

    Esmoriz is an incredible location for athletes and has a very active local community. Running, cycling, football, volleyball and surfing, of course, are the most popular activities. Right next to camp is Barrinha Lagoon, a protected nature reserve with a boardwalk for walkers, cyclists, runners and photographers. Esmoriz has a surprising number of great restaurants, and a few minimarkets in case you prefer to cook at camp. Prices are very affordable and the community is warm and welcoming. We offer a weekly BBQ and 2x Yoga for Surfers per week from April to October.

    What is the difference between a holiday pack and choosing the Surf classes individually?

    The Surf holiday Pack is a package that includes accommodation, breakfast, and free access to all surf equipment, surf lessons and amazing extra activities for a special weekly price. (Sunday to Sunday)

    The perks of choosing the Surf Lessons individually is that you can purchase as many as you want and choose when you want to take them.

    Should I choose Surf Camp Esmoriz and can I visit Porto during my stay?

    In terms of the location, our surf camp offers you all you could want from a surfing holiday.
    With the beach right in front and a variety of great surf spots nearby, our surf coaches will always take you to the best beaches for your level.

    The city of Porto is only a stone throw away from Esmoriz and short city trips are very popular among our guests. Easily hop on the train into the city center and explore the many attractions Oporto has to offer.

    Our original Surf Camp Portugal in Esmoriz has a beach front Surf House. It is the best location in town and offers very comfortable rooms, some with ocean views. The atmosphere is super laid back and right next to the top surf spots in the region (including Esmoriz, Cortegaca and Espinho), which are great for all surf levels.
