Surf School

Our Surf School was one the first schools opening in Portugal and its main goal is to teach safe surfing using only adequate gear and to offer highly dynamic, fun classes that continuously focus on pupils’ progress.

Since the School started in 1993, we have conducted over 4,000 surf courses for people from all sorts of nationalities with ages that span an equally wide range.

We are the only surf school in Portugal’s West Region that operates as a concessionary on a beach that has been exclusively reserved for water sports. As a result, we operate in an area of about 150 metres of the Baleal Camping Park beach that has been exclusively reserved for our School during the holiday season, and are thus able to run our courses on that beach under confortable and safe conditions.


Baleal Surf Camp provides Surf Guide in Peniche, a service tailored for experienced surfers.

These surf trips are done with our Wave Explorer Land Rover which is suitable to drive up and down about any type of track. Our range of action extends from Ericeira to Nazaré depending on the number of surfers and their experience. The trips are led by experienced and qualifiedsurfers who know the region and have surfed the different spots several times.


The Peniche region is known for great consistency in swell. There are not many occasions when you will be unable to get good enough waves.

However, and as is the case for the rest of the Portuguese coast, surfing conditions improve considerably during autumn, winter, and spring. Depending on the condition of the ocean on a particular day, there are potentially about 20 surf spots available within a 15-km radius and, therefore, it almost always possible to find a wave that is adequate for your particular level of surfing skill.

A short description of surfing conditions according to the various seasons of the year follows.
