Brazil Surf Camp – Introduction

This trip was featured in a hilarious article in The Indepdendent.

Head to southern Bahia for world-class surfing, expert instruction, deserted white-sand beaches, great outdoor adventures and vibrant culture. Our Brazil surf camp is based in a lively fishing village surrounded by protected rainforest; from here you’ll explore a range of superb breaks, from easy, slow-breaking waves (ideal for beginners) to fast and strong breaks.

But our surf camp in Brazil includes more than just incredible surf instruction. You’ll soak in warm Atlantic waters, sip coconuts on pristine beaches, and watch capoeira (an Afro-Brazilian dance) on the sand. You’ll wake up in a beautiful, custom-built pousada (hotel), drink caipirinhas, and dance with the locals. Everything about our Brazil surf camp is just the way it should be in this tropical surf paradise.

Surfing in Brazil means riding fantastic waves, enjoying beautiful weather, and meeting friendly locals. For more information on our Brazil surf camps, please call (650) 492 – 4778 or email us.

Note: This trip is run in tandem with our travel partner in Brazil.


When To Go Surfing in Brazil

Brazil enjoys tropical weather year-round with warm air and ocean temperatures- you never need a wetsuit!  And being part of the Atlantic rainforest, there is always the chance of rain. Generally, November – April is ideal for beginning surfers with smaller swells, about two to four feet. For more advanced surfers, April – September is when the surf really picks up and you are going to see some epic conditions. Of course, those are just guidelines and our experienced instructors have the best local knowledge to find the perfect spot to suit every ability all year long.
