When you say Peniche, in Portugal it is almost always connected to the word surf where this peninsula produces fantastic waves almost no matter the swell or wind direction. Peniche actually stands more as a synonym for all the small villages such as e.g. Baleal, where the camp is located.

People have been coming to surf Peniche since the 1960’s with a surfing industry being established to cater for the many surfers from around the world to stay, and practice their sport. One such place is the Ocean Ferrel Surf camp located just two minutes from the famous Lagido reef break, a notorious left hander with quite long and perfect waves when the swell works.

With Supertubos, known in surfing circles as the “European Pipeline”, just being the most famous wave, there are generally plenty of barrels to be found along the Peniche coastline. A year round destination with the biggest swell-window in Europe and waves averaging up to 10ft during the winter months, it is no surprise to hear that also the World Tour hosts the Rip Curl Pro Peniche each October in Peniche. Also beginners will always find their bay where gentle waves roll in perfect to get up first time on your board.

The Ocean Ferrel Surf Camp is run by a couple of surfers who have more than 15 years’ experience in the sport offering lessons to beginners and intermediates as well as advice for more advanced surfers on where to find the kind of waves they are after.

The camp has a multitude of accommodation from dormitory style bunk beds to private rooms with your own bathroom. They also have a chill out area complete with BBQ where you can relax after a hard days surfing. Located on the main road between Balael and Ferrel village close to all the nightlife the area has to offer makes Ocean Ferrel Surf Camp a perfect base for your Portuguese surfing adventure.

3 reasons to choose the Ocean Ferral Surfcamp are:

  1. One of Europe’s top locations with an established surfing industry.
  2. Ocean Ferrel Surf Camp is a great place to learn from experienced surfers.
  3. Great variety of accommodation in a relaxed setting close to Lagido.
