Sunset Surf Lodge, which is run by Wonder Season Unipessoal Lda, is situated directly next to the beautiful old fishing village of Ericeira. The area North of Lisbon where the camp is located gets it's best and most consistent swell from the beginning of spring over summer to the middle of autumn. This means that this section of coast is a dream European surf destination for surfers from around the world and Sunset Surf Lodge Ericeira is right in the middle of it.
Sunset Surf Lodge Ericeira is small and quaint, perfect to unwind. The pool with a view looking over the ocean is the perfect place to relax after a day spent in perfect surf. If you want to keep moving you can play football or volleyball in the spacious garden.
The rooms in the lodge are filled with natural light, which comes through huge windows that look over the Atlantic. They also have access to the terraced area outside. At the beginning of 2017 the lodge was renovated and newly furnished with modern, comfortable designer furniture.
In only 20 minutes by foot you’ll reach the first beach nearest to the Sunset Surf Lodge. With the city centre of the Ericeira being 10 minutes away by car you can explore this stunning old fishing village, which is located directly on the coast. You'll find great local restaurants, bars and some shopping as well as the Quiksilver Boardriders Club with its massive skate park. Lisbon 'the city of 7 hills' is also nearby taking approximately 40 minutes by car which is also worth an afternoon trip.

Beginners and Pros alike will find great conditions at spots like Coxos, Ribeira d’Ilhas or Pedra Branca from April till October.
Pastelerias & Restaurants
Ericeira offers plenty of culinary highlights. As the local are still predominantly fishermen and woman fresh fish is never far away but there is also a local delicacy called Pastel de Nata, which is a sweet pastry that you’ll find at most bakeries and cafes. One of our tips is the local ‘America Snack Bar’ where you can get some of the best grilled fish in town. Another one of our recommendations is the restaurant on the beach Praia do Sul near Miradouro da Baleia, where you can get a delicious Dorade while watching the sunset over the Atlantic. At Bella Sombra on the beach of Foz do Lizandro you might get the chance to enjoy a meal with some live music played by local musicians.
There is a reason why we gave the Sunset Lodge it's name! Grab a beer and find one of the numerous spots along the coast or around the Lodge to watch an unforgettable sunset.

In each of our courses you will get direct feedback from the surf instructor on the beach! As it is sometimes not easy to implement these tips directly, due to constantly changing surf conditions, we do it like the pros! We will film you on a selected surf course day from the beach while you are in the water. We check the footage in a cozy round in the evening and analyze what has been done well and where there is still room for improvement. Of course, only with your consent. On the basis of some examples, direct improvement possibilities are discussed which can help all surfers of the respective course group. Filming and evaluating each individual student would take a lot of time.
Therefore only a few videos are selected that show common mistakes that everyone can use for orientation.
If you're already a comfortable surfer and want to take the next step our general video analysis is perfect for you. With the analysis, you work on key sequences that differentiate whether you are "only" surfing solidly, or whether you are experiencing a clearly perceptible learning curve.

The coast between Ericeira and Peniche however is inundated with epic surf spots making this the European surf mecca. In a small stretch of coastline you will find the exact waves that want, regardless of your skill level.
Most of the breaks around Ericeira have rock bottoms that absorb the full force of the Atlantic swell. A few famous breaks are the long right point break of Coxos, the hollow left of Pedra Branca and the super consistent Ribeira d'Ilhas. These spots, as well as many more, are the reason that Ericeira was recognised as the only European World Surfing Reserve by the Save the Waves Coalition.
