São Jorge

One of the nine volcanic islands in the Azores archipelago, Portugal, is a hidden gem that captivates visitors with its dramatic landscapes, rich cultural heritage, and a tranquil atmosphere. The island is characterized by deep ravines, soaring cliffs, and fertile valleys, shaped by volcanic activity over the centuries. São Jorge’s distinct topography provides a captivating backdrop for exploration, attracting nature enthusiasts, hikers, and those seeking a peaceful retreat. The central spine of the island is dominated by the Pico da Esperança, the highest point on São Jorge, offering panoramic views of the surrounding ocean and neighboring islands.

Expect the same laid-back vibes, brotherhood, and passion for surfing that defines our surf trips.

Where we gonna Stay?

A restored rural house located in Fajã de Santo Cristo. After a walk and a dip in the waterfall, a dive in the lake or after riding some waves. The house have three bedrooms (option of double or single beds) with private WC, two mezzanines and one open-space.

Surf in São Jorge

One of the notable surf spots on São Jorge is Fajã de Santo Cristo, a picturesque bay surrounded by steep cliffs and lush vegetation. The waves here are powerful and consistent, offering an exciting challenge for surfers of various skill levels. The stunning backdrop of the cliffs and the Atlantic horizon adds a surreal element to the surfing experience, making it a truly memorable adventure.

 

There’s basically two world class waves at this location:

– A right hander right at the entrance, called Direita do Paço can be a mellow long wave, the most functional wave of S. Jorge. Easy acess, with a comfortable channel to get in and out.

– The powerfull left hander Lago do Linho, it´s the queen wave of S. Jorge, with steep drop and fast and furious speed down the line.

Relevant information:

1 – São Jorge Island has a small airport, and only propeller airplanes are able to land here. Therefore, expect to have a connecting flight from one of the two main airports in the archipelago, either from Terceira Island or São Miguel Island. There are already a few European cities with direct flights to the main Azorean island, São Miguel. Otherwise, you will need to take one of the several daily flights from Lisbon to Terceira or São Miguel.

2 – Being in the midlle of the atlantic ocean the wave forecast is totally unpredicatble, so eventually we can face stormy conditions.
3 – Due to the remote location Fajã S. Cristo, it´s quite isolated, so dont expect to have any supermarket, restaurants or shops. It´s possible to arrange a supermarket transfer to get some extra items. The house as the capacity to store fresh food and groceries.
4 – Internet, tap water and elecricity available.
5 – Taxi driver will be waiting for you in the airport to take you to us.
6 – There´s no car acess to the fajã, so the táxi will drop you in the last acessible road where a Baleal Surf Camp team element  will be waiting for you. From there your luggage will be transported by a Quad 4×4. Prepare yourself to walk 30 minutes in a path trail to reach your final destination immersed in an incredible natural scenery.
