Surfing in Portugal is one of the most beautiful surfing experiences in Europe.

Every day, you will prepare for a day on the road to find the perfect beach where Surfana can help you improve your surf skills. A Surfana week is always full of surprises.

You will be staying in an en-suite room with a maximum of 2 persons. Inside, there is a big open kitchen with a big table to eat at. Upstairs, there is a lounge area with really comfortable couches. There is a swimming pool as well. You don't need to bring sheets, blankets, or a pillow, it's provided. Towels are also provided.

Yoga helps make your body more flexible and powerful. Practicing yoga is a great preparation for surfing and it helps you move easier in the water. Every day during this retreat, you will start the day with a yoga class and sometimes in the evening you will do another cooling down yoga practice. Depending on the level and the wishes of the group, you will have both easy and more active lessons. This can vary from a relaxing Yin yoga class to a more active Vinyasa flow. The lessons will be given on different places.

Willemijn Noordhoff

Willemijn Noordhoff, a Dutch yogini, has been interested in the connection between mind and body, when she started her training to become a yoga teacher in India in 2012. Ever since, she teaches yoga on different places in and around Amsterdam, on festivals, for both smaller and bigger groups. She loves to surf and to travel and spread the yoga vibes wherever she comes and learn from international yoga teachers. Her lessons are creative, active, funny and personal. She is also a doctor so she has a great knowledge of the physical human body. When she isn’t practicing yoga or working at the hospital, she loves to go to the seaside to go surfing. In surfing, she finds a lot of parallels with the philosophy of yoga.

The villa is in the middle of the nature on a cliff with only a couple of small farms around and a beautiful view of the ocean and the village of Lagos, Algarve, Portugal.

Surfana Surftrips' chef will make you the best dishes of which a lot will be vegetarian. In case you have special wishes, you can tell the chef when you arrive.

You can have a day trip, go out for dinner somewhere, play games, watch the sunset, etc. Everyone wants to spend their time happily, so do whatever to make that happen!

    "This was my second time and it was great! Really cool to see how you get into the surfers lifestyle very easily, how a group of unknown people change into a group of friends, this is way more than a holiday. The whole crew is passionate and they are very experienced in what they do: the surf lessons, the vibe, the food, the freedom: all really superb. You don't want to miss out, it's 100% awesome!"

    "Wow, this was really amazing! Super beautiful location with a super nice villa, superb food and crew! The different spots we went to were great, I've had the feeling I was in the tropics the whole time! Super relaxed. Next year I'm definitely back. The sentence: "book the trip of your life" is definitely not exaggerated. Thank you, see you on the next trip."
