Overview

Freeride Surfcamp & School is located at Hotel Memmo Baleeira in Sagres. Our surf school works only with small groups and private surf teaching. Taylor made surf vacations are also available. Our experienced and qualified surf instructors will take you to the next level on surfing. We love to teach as much as taking you to the most authentic areas around Sagres either for a surf guide or to the best local restaurant and bar.
