Portugal / Two Person

Two Person Bodyboard Holiday to Portugal

Ability: All abilities welcome, from new bodyboarders to experienced shredders

Are you eager to get away with your best mate or partner, score sick waves, sky rocket your bodyboarding performance, have fun in the sun and get a real feel for Portugal’s bohemian lifestyle, then this is the perfect trip for you!


Our Aim

Our man on the ground in Portugal Matt ‘Mave’ Davies will host, coach and guide you to the best breaks his adopted home has to offer.

He rips both prone and dropknee and knows the place better than any local.

The Waves

Our guide in Portugal, Matt, spent much of his late teens/early twentiess travelling the world in search of the best bodyboarding waves. And so it comes as no surprise that he ended up choosing Portugal as his home. Portugal has such a wide range of perfect bodyboarding spots it’s ridiculous!

The coastline around where Matt lives is blessed with really consistent waves and offers so much variety. He has a beach up his sleeve for virtually every wind direction and swell size. With so many options there are spots for every ability or taste. There are gentle sand bottomed beach breaks for first timers, to the world class reefs of Ericeira and big barrels of Supertubos for advanced shredders, and everything in between.  

 

Climate

The water temperature fluctuates from 14°C to 18°C and air temps between 14°C in winter and 35+°C in summer, which means this place is never too hot or too cold, in or out the water.

Accommodation

Take a step back in time, you’ll be staying in the historic and picturesque village of Colares with stunning views of the Serra de Sintra and just 5 minutes from the beach. Matt has a clean and comfortable two-bedroom apartment with kitchen, dining area, living room, bathroom and WiFi throughout. The apartment overlooks a charming square that boasts cafés a local bakery, grocery store and hardware store.

Coaching

Matt will deliver daily tuition tailored to your ability. He is lifeguard qualified and has some twenty years of surfing experience and fifteen years of worldwide travel experience. He was personally trained by British team coach, Rob Barber.

Intermediate and advanced level coaching is tailored towards the individual.

Beginner coaching includes:

  • Oceanography class at the start of the week to understand breaks, rips and currents
  • Bodyboarding safety, beach awareness and how to catch waves
  • How to paddle out, gain speed, duck dive and wipe out safely
  • Learning moves such as cutbacks, barrel rolls and three-sixty spins
  • How to get the most from your equipment while having heaps of fun
  • Pro standard bodyboard kit available to hire at great prices
