Surfing Holiday Portugal

Portugal has a lot of surf potential. First and foremost, it is surrounded by the open ocean. This is one of the main reasons it has such good surfing conditions. The beginner might just want to try some small waves under the watch full eye of a surf instructor from a surf school. Or maybe you are an intermediate or advanced surfer, who surfs all over the world and would like to make some new friends at a surf camp in Portugal? Great climate, friendly people, affordable prices, tasty food, we have it all! The possibilities for your surf adventures are endless.

We’re CLOSED at the moment but will RE-OPEN our doors soon:

Watermark Surf houses custom designed for fun!


Who are we and what can we do for you? Well, we are three guys who eat, sleep and breath surfing and transformed our passion for surfing into a personal business. We can be your local guide on your chase for waves. Or your surf school where you can take surf lessons to improve. Either way, we understand that surfing is a lifestyle. While you improve your skills, you’ll become one with the elements around you. Our goal is not only to help you improve but help you enjoy doing it. During, before and after surfing. As surfers with personal experiences, we started to develop our Watermark project. We handpicked and developed our Surf houses in Esmoriz and Espinho (near Porto). With this experience in mind, we created a personal and fun surfing experience, in a beautiful and not yet overcrowded area.

What makes the North of Portugal special? There are only a few places in the world, where you can find such a unique combination of culture and surfing. The fact of being so close to Porto allows our visitors to get the best of both worlds. Fall in love with one of the most beautiful cities in the world (yes, we’re suspicious). Get a natural surfing experience with nice waves and beautiful beaches. Yet, less crowded than most of Portugal’s well-known destinations.

Around Esmoriz you can count on a relaxed daily life, lot’s of natural areas, surf spots (beach breaks and point breaks) and a laid-back surf community.

While in Espinho you’ll find a bit more of the urban lifestyle. But, still with the mellow atmosphere of a city under development, where everything seems to be right around the corner. Furthermore, The surfing in Espinho is excellent and consistent. A bit more crowded but make no mistake, nothing like Peniche or others spots in the South!
