Accomodations

Hotel Tivoli Lagos****

This is an excellent 4-star hotel within the old city walls of Lagos. It takes less than five-minute to walk to the center of the city where you will find many shops and restaurants. The hotel has very nice rooms and a lovely swimming pool. If you want to visit the famous beach Meia Praia then you simply take the hotel shuttle  which drives back and forth several times every day. The hotel has its own cafe on the beach where you will also find a swimming pool.

Day 1 Arrival

You arrive at the airport in Faro and if you've selected transfers then we will pick you up from there and drive you to the Mansions. If you want to know about alternative ways to get to Lagos see below under "Practical info".

Day 2-7 Kitesurfing

Staying at the camp is very straight forward. Every morning breakfast is served at The Mansions. Since the wind starts almost like clockwork at 1pm every day you will have time to sleep in or do other things in the morning. At some point between 11 and 12 we head to the beach where you get suited up and are taken to the lagoon by the speed boat. That way we are certain to get as much kitesurf-time as possible every day. You kitesurf as much as you can until you get tired, it gets dark or the tide comes in.

In the evening we usually go out to eat together (optional of course) and twice a week we have a dinner at The Mansions where Rachel cooks us a fantastic dinner with free sangria (included in the price of your stay).

The next day is pretty much the same - except you will be better at kitesurfing than you were yesterday.

Flights

Notice: The flight to Faro or Lisbon is not included in the price of this tour. If you require transfers to/from the airport you will need to let us know your flight details once you have booked your flight.

 

Getting from the airport

If you want to take the train:

It is important that you arrive to Faro before 5p.m. That way you will have time to catch the last train to Lagos which leaves around 19:30 and costs around 8 euro. A taxi from the airport to the train station costs roughly 10 euro.

Transfer to/from the airport:

When you chose this option, you are met at the airport and driven directly to the Surf House. This is without a doubt the most comfortable option. The ride takes a little less than an hour. Here are the prices pr. person pr. way:

1 person: 50 euro
2 persons: 40 euro
3+ persons: 30 euro

Special diets

We can arrange any diet you want while you stay in the Surf House. If you want vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free or with/without a special ingredient, simply let us know and we will make sure that your needs are taken care of.

Kitesurfing

The kitesurfing takes place at the Alvor-lagune where you will find flat water. We set up shop at a sand dune and this means that the last part of the transfer to the kite-spot is done by boat. The boat sets off from Meia Praia and takes around 5 minutes. We will head to the kitesurf spot every day around noon. That means we will be ready for when the wind picks up which is usually around 1pm – 1:30pm. You can expect 2-3 hours of kitesurfing every day but it can be more or less than that, as the tide and wind allows.

From the sand dune, the wind is offshore, so if you are kitesurfing on your own it is best if you can sail against the wind. Regardless of your kitesurf-level there will be someone watching who is ready to aid you if you need a hand. Beginners will be taught along the side of the sand dune, which means that they have side-shore winds.

Windsurfing

The windsurfing takes place at Meia Praia (the long beach). The wind is typically side/-off-shore. There are people on jet-skis keeping an eye on all windsurfers ready to help.

The Wind

The kitesurf camp is only open in the absolute best wind-season in the Algarve, which is from mid-June until the end of August. Usually there is not much wind in the mornings, so you should not expect to kitesurf before around 1pm – 1:30pm. Once it is on, you can expect to kitesurf 2-3 hours pr. day.

Wind is always unpredictable and in case of windless days there are plenty of other things you can do. For instance, you can enjoy a kayak-trip or have fun with Stand Up Paddle boards.

Notice: There are no refunds for windless days, which is why we offer you free use of SUPs and Kayaks on those days.
