Surf trip details

Itinerary

Sunday - Sines

We start our trip with the transfer from Porto Covo (Sines) bus station at 13:00 and head to the Truck’s location.

Once at the Truck we’ll do a short briefing to introduce you to your new home on wheels for the week before demonstrating the uniqueness and curiosities of the Truck. We’ll then go for our first surf session in this area – somewhere between Sines and Porto Covo!

After that, we can experience the warm colors of Alenjeto together at sunset and enjoy a nice dinner in a local restaurant with delicious traditional food and some excellent drinks.

Monday - Porto Covo

Monday will be all about surfing and exploring!

You’ll wake up to the sound of the ocean and begin the day with a surf. Then, after breakfast, we’ll hit the road, check a few surf spots around Porto Covo and jump in the water to surf as long as we want.

Lunch will be at the beach and we’ll discover hidden beaches, caves and cliffs. Later on, we’ll enjoy another surf session before ending the day with a delicious sunset BBQ and celebrating the evening with music at the Truck.

Still feel like being active upon our return?

It’s possible to also go horse riding or wine tasting at a popular local vineyard (optional experiences).

Tuesday - Porto Covo to Aljezur

After a breakfast buffet with a view over Pessegueiro Island plus an early surf session, we’ll hit the road and head to Aljezur (while the Truck is packed for the next location).

During the trip, you can enjoy sweeping views of Costa Vicentina with its rolling fields, nesting storks and distant mountains. Once in Aljezur, we select one of the stunning surf spots for our next session, whether it’s Odeceixe, Amoreira, Monte Clérigo or Arrifana.

Rest assured, our guides and surf coaches will find the best waves for your surf level!

Wednesday - Aljezur

Feeling a bit stiff after a couple of solid surf days?

We’ll usher in the day with a relaxing yoga session so you’re loose and limber for another epic surf! Afterward, we’ll drive you to a nearby beach surrounded by striking cliffs and surf awesome waves (prepare for some seriously good sightseeing from these cliffs).

If you feel like it, we can then either go for a skate, swim in the Odeceixe river or ride in a boat to get a better glimpse of those beautiful cliffs (optional experience).

In the evening we’ll set up for a sunset BBQ and kick back to review the surfing clips we took of you before providing detailed tips on how you can improve your surf skills (surf video analysis).

Thursday - Aljezur to Vila do Bispo

The next stop south is the bucolic village of Vila do Bispo. It’s here where nature gets even more stunning and we’re able to select from 20 different surf spots!

In saying that, if you feel like you need a break from surfing there are many other activities on offer in the area. These activities include jumping from the cliffs and swimming in the calm ocean on the south coast, a SUP tour through Lagos’ caves, horseback riding and relaxing massages on the beach (optional experiences).

At the end of the day, we’ll watch the sunset from our favourite viewpoints, either from the highest point in Vila do Bispo or Cape S. Vicentine, otherwise known as The End of the World.

Friday - Sagres to Lagos

Wake up on a farm on top of a hill next to curious donkeys, shaggy goats, friendly dogs and a pretty lake with fields as far as the eye can see!

We’ll then explore the west and south coasts and surf uncrowded, sandy beaches – all situated at the base of yet more dramatic cliffs. For an amazing adventure, you could also check out Benagi cave which is one of the most beautiful spots in the Algarve (optional experience).

To finish the day we’ll dine in the historical centre of Lagos and enjoy live music in a local bar or chill out back at the Truck.

Saturday - Lagos

We’ll take it easy for our last day and savour the final morning. A cruisy surf session will be on the cards, as will a lovely breakfast where we go over the videos and photos we’ve taken of you on this trip.

Once that’s wrapped up we’ll drive you to the drop-off location in Lagos (between 8:00 – 13:00).

* A little note: This is a rough plan for how the surf trip usually rolls. Trips will either run from Sines to Lagos or from Lagos to Sines, however, we’ll inform you of the direction we’re taking once you fill out the booking form.
