Yoga: Four times a week we will offer one hour of yoga. The lesson will give you an introduction to yoga and is especially targeted at surfers. Many pro-surfers and more and more soul surfers realize that yoga and surfing are the perfect team. Pro-surfer Rochelle Ballard said: "I think that the combination of power and flexibility is briliant as well the effect it has on your mind". When we are surfing we use certain muscle groups which we can relax again after surfing during the yoga sessions. Yoga also helps to focus your mind. You will master your fears because you can face them with ease and energy. Yoga combines power, body tension, mobility, flexibility, balance, calmness, peace and a strong mind. Components which we need in the line-up while catching waves
Portugal: Portugal is always worth a trip. From the capital Lisbon with its rich culture and the stunning landscapes to the most beautiful beaches on the coast. Our WaveSisters Surfcamp is located on the seaside of Lisbon just on the other side of the Tejo in Costa da Caparica. You will find a nice climate in spring, summer and autumn, ideal to enjoy the sun and the good life. Come along and enjoy the waves, the happiness of yoga and a "Galão" café with a Pastel de Natas (traditional cream cake) with us and other like-minded people.
Costa da Caparica: Costa da Caparica or now just called „Costa“ by the portugiese, is becoming more and more popular -not only by surfers- and is considered THE beach in Lisbon area. South of Costa, still the same beach, after 10km, the natural park „Arriba Fósssil da Costa da Caparica“ starts and has another 20km of beach and an unspoiled forest inland.
Best weather, perfect waves with relaxed athmosphere, plenty of space in stunning nature are all reasons for us to move our camp to Costa. The special flair of Costa also comes from the long promenade with plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants to have beautiful sunsets and chill outs.
Lisbon: There’s too much to tell about Lisbon to really start here. But we give you very quick overview: The city was built on seven hills. Capital of Portugal, rich in culture and sights. The oldest district, the "Alfama", with its little streets and places is home to the famous "Fado" bars. The "barrio alto" is the center for young people and full of little shops, restaurants and plenty of bars and night life. The "barrio baixa" the real centre of the city invites to stroll, shop and enjoy Portuguese traditions.
