Surf's up dude!

Learn to read the ocean and praise the beauty of nature in this brand new programme. Join us as we debut our “Catch the wave” summer camp where fun meets the ocean. With a original mixed programme, you will be able to take the best of Zoomarine, while learning to surf in a real ocean experience.

Surfing is not as easy as it looks. To take the most of this amazing sport and its close connection to the environment, it is worth taking some lessons to give you the basics and hopefully get you up on your feet. It's definitely a great way to spend time outdoors and enjoy the natural environment. And it is also an awesome outlet for that excess energy sometimes you wake up with. This programme is design for those eager to learn how to surf, in a safe and fun environment. Surf lessons are conducted by Albufeira Surf Clube.

With all this laying in the background, an important message is then revealed: that of bonding, protection and respect for Nature!
