The Classy Ride

You will expand your knowledge about longboard surfing, as well as evolve your skills in 7 days of intense workshops and video-analysis.

Yoga lessons, longboard skate lessons, delicious food, cozy stay, free surf sessions during sunsets, events with local community - all this will help you reach your highest potential as a longboarder and get the inspiration you needed.

And hey, we are building the program based on the best conditions for a longboard session, and not the best time to have breakfast. As much as it's a fun trip, it's the one where you WILL progress, and that takes some effort and willpower to wake up before the sunrise. ;-)

We are taking care of ALL the organisation, so you can focus only on your longboarding journey and ENJOY the experience. Are you ready?
Do you dream about long smooth waves?
Are you fascinated by people effortlessly walking up and down their board?

This unique retreat is designed for those who want to master their longboard surfing skills and are looking forward to sharing waves with fellow longboard lovers.

Unlike other camps, our program is made for people who can catch waves on their own. Whether you are already working on your steps or simply surfing down the green wave, you are at the right place*. Our instructors will have a lot of experience and skills to share with you.

*If you are unsure about your level - reach out to us, and we'll take time to talk with you about it.

Filipe Seixas
Born in Lisbon, Filipe started surfing at the age of 8 after getting hit by a longboard while bodyboarding. The surfer let him try the longboard and since then, he fell in love with the feeling of gliding on a wave. Most of his life decisions were made with the main priority of spending as much time in the ocean as possible.

Started competing recently in Longboard festivals, with his best results being a 4th place in the National Cup and 3rd place in the Gliding Barnacles international surf festival.

Filipe also competed in downhill skateboard, with the 1st place at Copa Centro Oeste in Brazil, a few 2nd and 3rd places in local and regional events, and a 13th place in the Red Bull Vista Chinesa world championship stage in Rio de Janeiro, at age 15.
Head instructor
Filipe is one of the main drivers for the recent longboard resurgence in the region of Peniche, striving to
develop a community, with good values of respect, cooperation and sharing.

He will be sharing his experience and knowledge in the following topics

- How waves work: Where, how, and what to look for.
- How boards work: Main difference in shapes, fins, curves. How weight change affects board
- Basic techniques: Efficient paddle, functional take off variations, turning, trimming and cross stepping
- Importance of visualization and exercises
- Surf etiquette and safety.

Polina & Ruba
Hi, we are Polina and Ruba.
We have been living on the Portuguese coast for several years now. Surfing is what brought each one of us to this country in the first place, and later on it's what made us such close friends. Sharing waves and having fun in the water is a feeling that is hard to describe. We just wish everyone to experience it at some point in their surf life.

Longboard surfing came into our lives not so long ago, but this didn't stop us from falling in love with it so quickly and hopelessly. :-) Nah, we are not great surfers really, but the passion we have for it is huge. And we believe it's all about enJOYing what you do, no matter the level you have.

Our love for sharing waves is what brought us to creating this unique program for longboard lovers. We are gathering the best team and partners to help you achieve what you are dreaming about, and most importantly, have fun together.
Wavegliders team
In 2009, after a lot of years in and outside of Portugal Nico founded Wavegliders. From the will of creating a new segment of surfboards that have all the performance and functionality and also the artistic visual side.

All Wavegliders Surfboards are Handshape by Nico and 100% Craft at Ericeira Portugal with only the finest materials in the market.
Our surf house is a stone's throw away from some of the best waves in the Peniche area with a pool and jacuzzi. The surf house has a relaxed atmosphere, which is perfect for learning how to surf or simply enjoying the incredible scenery. There is also a skate park in the yard and everything you need to throw a bbq party. Our friendly native Italian hosts will make you feel at home and soil you with delicious vegetarian breakfasts and dinners. Oh, Mama Mia!
Our accommodation consists of four rooms with individual beds. However, if you're coming as a couple/family, we have the possibility to adapt the rooms accordingly.

All the bedrooms are located on the first floor, as well as two bathrooms with showers and a living room area with a fireplace overlooking the backyard.

On the ground floor, you will find a fully equipped common kitchen, a spacious and bright multifunction space, and a dining area.
