Sounds serious? … well, it is.  This is an incredible jewel of a surf camp with 1, 3 or 5 day courses plus as many extra days as you want if you pay.   If you really want to get surfing, this is definitely one of the best foundations you could wish for.  And if you already surf well?  Rui will push you to competition standard.  Or so he says.  Sagres, Portugal (Western Algarve) is beautiful, the beaches are secluded and the teaching is second to none.  I haven’t been to the Pipa camp in Brazil but it’s not through lack of want!
