Lourinhã near Peniche: a surf camp for all lifestyles

Going to Lourinhã for a surf camp near Peniche or Ericeira is going to a place of integration, companionship and sharing of experiences, open to surfers of all types, nationalities and skill levels. Meanwhile in Brazil, a much more specific experience is getting ready to start when, during May, the first surf camp in the world for lesbians opens up.

Lesbian Surf Camp

surf camp

Surf is and will be one of the world´s most vanguard sports, open to individual lifestyles, Brazil Ecojourneys concluded it had sufficient reasons to go even further and bring this idea into practice in the state of Santa Catarina. Marta Dalla Chiesa, surfer and owner of the business, says there are plenty of lesbian surfers that would enjoy a chance to join up and improve their sport talent together.

The initiative isn't just open to one sexual preference, but is without a doubt only open to women, and the choice of location is no accident: the state holds a very LGBT-friendly posture, and the state capital Florianopolis is one of the main gay destinies in Brazil, ensuring that the entire region is friendly and welcoming of the surfers. Besides surfing, hiking or yoga also belong to the menu of offered services. Later this year, in September or October, the initiative will also be organizing a week for members of the LGBT community of both genders.

If sexual preference isn't your main motive for choice for vacation destination, going to Brazil might not be at a total necessity. Along the Portuguese coast, there´s no lack of exceptional spots and hospitable people to make the activity of surfing an unforgettable experience, in and out of the water.

Regardless if you"re going to Lourinhã, Ericeira or Peniche, surf camps in Portugal will be waiting for you with a welcoming smile, some of the best waves in the whole world, and total embracing of your lifestyle choices to give you a surf home away from home.
