Our Surf School was one the first schools opening in Peniche and Portugal, its main goal is to teach safe surfing using only adequate gear and to offer highly dynamic, fun classes that continuously focus on pupils’ progress. Benifiting from beeing located in the most consistent surf spot in Peniche and Baleal Peninsulas our surf school has an ideal location for providing quality surf courses, great for beginners and intermediate surfers.
Since the School started in 1993, we have conducted over 5,600 surf courses for people from all sorts of nationalities with ages that span an equally wide range.
We are the only surf school in Portugal’s West Region that operates as a concessionary on a beach that has been exclusively reserved for water sports. As a result, we operate in an area of about 150 metres of the Baleal Camping Park beach that has been exclusively reserved for our School during the holiday season, and are thus able to run our courses on that beach under very safe conditions.
Baleal Surf Camp Surf School in Peniche is accredited by the Portuguese Surfing Federation as well as the Peniche Harbour Captancy.
We are also ISA member and comply with standards so that the school is registered each year.
Since many years now we are an active participant on local initiatives together with Surfrider Foundation Europe. On these activities we involve local community and staff as well as guests. Usually we either organize or just participate in beach cleanup events on beaches around Baleal and Peniche.
