Location & surf

Oporto Surf Camp is situated in the traditional fisherman's village of Praia de Esmoriz. A picturesque village where traditions are still alive and the prices not yet influenced by tourism. At the camps surroundings you can find restaurants with typical Portuguese dishes (fresh sea food), bakeries, and traditional groceries and shops with typical products from the region. You can also find Clubs, Bars, beach Bars, and a lot of unspoiled and uncrowded surf spots!

With a 15km coastline, Oporto offers you more than 20 beach breaks with consistent swell all year long, with waves for all levels of surfing. The most famous and consistent spot is Espinho, known for its long and barreling right-hander. For intermediate surfers the best spot is Cagalhotos, a long and easy right, perfect for developing your surf maneuvers. In front of the Surfcamp is a speedy and fun left-hander, and south of the Surfcamp you can find multiple peaks from the beaches of the Natural Park of Maceda. The natural park combines great surf with the pure touch of nature. The north is full of beach breaks suited for beginners, with many uncrowded spots, so we have a beach for ourselves to practice your skills undisturbed.
