A surf holiday at SaltyWay Surfcamp means one week of surfing fun – from Monday to Friday. Each course day is divided into half a day surfing and theory and half a day free. Two days a week there is also a 90 minute yoga session.
Our goal is to take you to the surf spot where the best surf conditions are for you. Therefore we make the daily routine a bit flexible and adapt it to the waves, the weather and the tides. So the half day, consisting of surf practice and surf theory, can take place either in the morning or in the afternoon.
We could list a long list of entertaining and fascinating things to do in the area. But experience shows that every group is different. Therefore we leave the selection to you directly on site.
So far, these activities have been the most popular:
Of course you can also just lounge around and read a book. No matter what you choose, there is no pressure to get involved. It’s your surfing or climbing holiday.
In addition to the surf course, we offer you two 90-minute yoga sessions per week. Yoga offers you a welcome relief from the aching muscles of climbing and the opportunity to concentrate and find your way back after an adrenaline-filled day. The yoga is special designed for climbers and surfers and has the goal to regenerate and mobilise. Carolina, your yoga teacher at SaltyWay is an experienced teacher. She is educated in the performance art and loves to share here knowledge and passion for the Yoga lifestyle.
Portugal is known for its sunny and mild weather. The weather and water temperatures in the area are perfect in spring and summer, but also great in autumn. From March to November you can expect reliable dry, sunny weather and temperatures between 20 and 25 degrees Celsius. In the summer months the temperatures rise to 25 to 35 degrees Celsius. The water temperature is between 14 and 22 degrees.
Therefore we usually equip our guests with a 5/3 millimeter Prolimit wetsuit, but we also have some thinner suits available. If you would like to bring your own suit, we recommend packing a long sleeve 5/3mm for the early morning hours or in spring and autumn. In summer a 3/2mm Neo or even a Shorty is often enough.
In our experience it is easier for guests who are preparing physically and mentally for their surf holiday to make progress in surfing. Therefore, if you want to maximize your time in the water, we recommend that you make appropriate preparations.
A combination of cardio, strength and flexibility training two to three times a week is suitable for the right surf fitness. The best thing to do is to put together a realistic surf fitness program that you enjoy. A combination of the following sports, for example, is great:
