This was the first surfing camp I ever tried and I must say it was the best. I came here in April 2015 and everyone was super friendly. The lessons were excellent and the instructor Eduardo is amazing. He is very knowledgeable and he teaches your everything. By the end of a few days, I was addicted. The waves when... More

Staying for 2 weeks was a great idea. The super friendly staff makes you feel welcome from the first moment on. The house and rooms are very clean and good organized. Tasty breakfast and freshly made orange juice gets you into the new day. Esmoriz is a nice small place with a lot of different restaurants and a great beach... More

I took the one week beginner's course at the camp.The surfing instructors are excellent and they are very passionate at what they do. Everyone working at the camp is super friendly and always ready to help. Make sure you book the ensuite room, otherwise you'd have to share bathrooms!

We had a really great experience dropping by Surfivorcamp in Esmoriz. While we were only there for one day, it's easy to see what a great experience it would be to stay for a week. The staff were all super friendly, great relaxed atmosphere amongst everyone. It was our first time surfing and we were very impressed with the quality... More

It was a first surf camp in my life. And I got more than I expected. Nice surf team. The surf teacher is always with you in the water. Accommodation is very nice, clean and tidy. The "crew" proposes different entertainment in the evening. The connection from Porto is very easy and reachable by train.

Great people, very friendly and helpfull staff. Accomodation was good, clean. Shower was cold one day but as soon as I told them, they fixed the problem (nice to have a hot shower after surfing in the coldish Portugese waters). Good atmospere and lucky to have a really nice, fun group of people that week. Missed the video analysing of... More

Good standard on my private room, and and clean showers and toilets. Light breakfast, but enough to get to your energy for the surf and other activities. If you have tried surfing before, the coaches will give you advise on turning, and give you tips to correct errors that you don't see yourself. Very usefull.

I stayed for a week on the surf lessons/breakfast/accomodation package which is great value for money. Esmoriz is a little way from Porto airport but Miguel gave very helpful, precise directions on how to get there, and arranged a pick up from Esmoriz station. The staff and surf instructors were fantastic, enthusiastic and very friendly and approachable. The hostel itself... More

I spent a week in Surfivor Camp in Esmoriz and it was a great experience. The teachers are good, the house is very well kept, located by the beach and with many excursions near by.
