02 Sep Surf and Yoga in Portugal 3rd – 10th Nov 2019
I’m excited and delighted to be running a Surf and Yoga trip this year to the Algarve, YAY!!!
A trip to Portugal is always a lot of…fun and a great way to get some winter sun and stretch out the summer that little bit further (no pun intended!).
This time we have a schedule especially for my Yogis, with hours of fun in the water every day and post-surf yoga each afternoon.
FYI – Don’t forgot to bring your travel mat!
Dates: 3rd to the 10th of November.
Cost: €499 for the week.
Deposit: €100 deposit to reserve your spot.
We have a transfer leaving Faro to Lagos that meets the Ryan Air Flight from Dublin on Sunday the 3rd of November. We can arrange other transfers on request.
This trip is open to beginners as well as more experienced surfers.
***FYI, I’ve been learning to surf for about 2 years and I still take the lessons. I get nervous if the waves are big or powerful, so I prefer to be with instructors who will help me while I’m in the water, so that I progress instead of feeling inadequate!
We will have surf lessons with the local surf school from 10am to 3pm each day, with a packed lunch at the beach. Conditions are usually quite different to home, so we will learn from the local instructors, who will take us each morning to the best beach on either the south/north coast.
Beginner Trip includes:
7 nights shared accommodation in surf lodge with breakfast
5 days of surf lessons, including board and wetsuit hire
5 yoga sessions
Daily transfers to the beach
Me (Aideen) as your host for the week, to show you the ropes and all the best bars and restaurants in Lagos.
For those with more experience, that want bigger waves and hard-boards, there is a guiding option with Bundoran Surf Co surf school, who will be coming on the trip as well. Cost of boards and wetsuits not included in that option.
Sunday 3rd of November:
Arrive at Faro airport and make our way to the surf hostel in Lagos.
Help me celebrate my birthday!!! Woohoo! Let’s maybe share a bottle of wine somewhere nice in town???
Monday – Friday:
Breakfast at the surf lodge;
Prepare packed lunch (bread rolls, ham, cheese, salads provided by the hostel);
Head off to the beach either with the local instructors, or with your guides;
Lessons from 10am until 3pm, with our packed lunch on the beach during that time;
Back to the hostel to shower and change;
Yoga session to stretch out our tired bodies and keep them limber for the next day. I will show you different variations, so you can choose what feels right for you each day. All levels welcome. Don’t forget to bring your travel mat!
Each evening we head out for dinner in Lagos (within walking distance). I’ll will organise a different restaurant each evening, so all the hard work is done for you!;
Chilling at the hostel is also acceptable, there’s a supermarket very close by to buy food and drinks if you prefer;
Early nights are optional, if you feel like a night out there’s lots of great options and lots of new buddies to join you!
We have the day off to explore, to chill, whatever you fancy.
Time to head home : (
But don’t forget to swap social media details with all your new buddies and share photos of all the fun!!
Transfer to the airport available.
Flights go up closer to the time, so let’s get organised asap. Give me a shout if I can help or if you have any questions.
