This was truly one of the best surf experiences iv'e ever been on! I shared this adventure with 2 family friends and their children and all can't wait to go back. We surfed everyday along with stand up paddle boarding and we rented 2 kites for the week as well. We got the chance to visit 5 beautiful towns, sample amazing food and spend everyday sailing along one of the most epic coastlines iv'e ever seen. Bring on next year!Max Aldridge -
Thank you for helping to arrange one of our best holidays. The trip, boat, crew, surf coach and attention to detail could not have been improved. A truly memorable experience.Carole -
You'll need a flight into Porto where you will be picked up by your private transfer and taken to your first destination of Vila Nova de Cerveira to set sail on your adventure. You will then be picked up from the Porto Marina at the end of your trip and dropped off at the airport with plenty of time to spare.
