Arrifana Surf School & Camp
After several years of teaching young people and adults, Francisco Oliveira, also known as “The Bear”, founded Arrifana Surf School in 2007. It’s one of the most reputable schools in the Algarve region and it is known for its teaching quality and fun during the surf lessons. We operate in 4 locations: The Arrifana Surf House located a few meters from the beach so our customers live super close to the surf spot. Two Surf Shops in strategic places to make your life easier when buying souvenirs, surf gear, or rent equipment. And last but not least our Surf School and Beach Hut are based at Praia da Arrifana from May to October, where we also ensure all surveillance as well as safety and beach rescues thanks to our lifeguard team.
We’re waiting for you to be part of our wonderful family.
Join the fun, with us!
