Cliff Surf & Yoga Camp in Santa Cruz

May all who come as Guests leave as Friends

Settled just 2-minute walk from a breathtaking coastline of the Atlantic Ocean, Cliff Surf & Yoga Camp is a place to be if you are craving for a memorable vacation. All it takes is just 200 meters down the path from our camp to find yourself in pristine and charming Praia da Vigia (Vigia Beach), one of the 20 beaches belonging to Santa Cruz miles-long sandy shore. This area is lavishly gifted with great uncrowded waves almost allyear round.

Our Mission

The mission of Cliff Surfcamp goes far beyond just giving surf & Yoga retreats. We want to introduce you to the entire Surf & Yoga lifestyle, which is about connecting to nature and other people, discovering yourself and enjoying unique moments. We want to take you to well-known places and secret spots; open to you our Portuguese heart and soul; let you try new flavours and smell new odors. In other words, we simply want you to relax and have the time of your life.
Our Cliff Surf Camp team is here for you 24/7 to ensure the only thing you have to do is chilling and having fun. You can count on our service and full attention at every stage of your vacation - from preparation to actual stay to departure.

Surf lessons

We love surfing, and our goal is to share this love with you, our guest! Whether it's your first rendezvous with the magic surf lifestyle, or you're already a ´hooked´ one, our team cannot wait to greet you on board!
You will enjoy a daily surf session of about 3 hours with a 30min snack (or nap) break. The class' schedules vary from day to day as they depend on ocean tides and weather conditions, but our team will always keep you updated.
In CSC, every surf lesson is composed in a way that enables joyful, step-by-step and easy-to-follow learning process. Even though each surf session is unique when it comes to feeling and content, there are core principles that form a solid basis for our surf teaching philosophy.

At sunrise and sunset, at fast pace and in meditation-like mode, first on sand, then on water, you will practice all kind of exercises and techniques to master the art of surf, gradually and joyfully. You will learn how to:

  • prepare your body for surf session with a proper warm-up
  • enter the water in right place and right time
  • choose waves
  • paddle efficiently and manage breath
  • stand up on board
  • hold balance and turn and many more things (we just don´t like listing!) Each surf session is, therefore, a balanced mix of theory, practice and rest.

Meals

To surf better, one should eat well. This is why Cliff Surf & Yoga Camp serves delicious and diverse breakfast for you every day. Prepared with a traditional touch (and a spoonful of love), our breakfast buffet comprises everything to start a day right: assortment of bread and pastries, cold cuts, muesli, yogurt, jams& jellies, hot & cold beverages, fresh seasonal fruit. The breakfast is complimented with a take-away beach snack (a sandwich, a packet of biscuits, water, juice and a fruit) to keep you energized throughout entire surf session.

In case you don’t feel like cooking dinner tonight, pick one from our special menu, like BBQ's, Sushi, Vegetarian food and encompassing numerous options from local restaurants, and we will manage all the logistics. Sunrise to sunset, enjoy also yammy smoothies, healthy snacks and fresh salads from our bar.

In Cliff Surf & Yoga Camp we aim to turn meals into uniting and fun way to get to know each other, engage in interesting conversation and dive into cultural diversity. What can be better than sharing the excitement about an upcoming surf session with like-minded people over a morning cup of coffee?

That will give you tools that you can apply in your life and improve it substantially.
