The beaches of west Algarve are famous for their beauty and wonderful waves.
We have lots of boards – all sizes, all shapes, for learning to surf and improving and for those who already know how. We have bars. Great bars. With plenty of beer. Sagres is well known for both of those. And the last 2, they go together so perfectly…
All you need for a stylish summer in Sagres – from beachwear and urban/street wear to boards and wetsuits, sandals, sunglasses, surf accessories and skate stuff too. Come see us at the shop and check our racks out!
We stock small friendly brands alongside the mainstream quality brands so you can find anything from O’Neill and Hurley, Pukas and HippyTree, to the European Wemoto, Australian label Afends and the US Vissla - makers of the ‘Upcycled Coconut Boardshorts’ named Boardshorts of the Year 2017.
For most people learning to surf is one of the best moments of their life. The challenge, thrill, adrenaline in your body, the excitement and the wonderful feeling of catching waves. You get stronger, your balance improves, sometimes it’s hard but you keep getting better, until you stand up for the first time and you feel amazing - you did it!
But sometimes we see people learning the hard way - by themselves - and for them it turns into a battle. It doesn’t look fun, you can tell by their face, and often they give up trying because they don’t enjoy it.
If you joined the surf school last summer you probably met David already, so you’ll know why we’re so happy that he came back this year!
He’s working with us for only 2 months before he goes off travelling, so we’re making the most of having his friendly face and relaxed vibe around the surf camp!! And we’re very happy to make a little introduction about him as one of the team. We get a feeling he’ll be here again, and very much hope so - and we hope that you get the chance to meet him when you come to surf with us!
The surf camp is open and our first guests are already enjoying the surf lessons!
We're warming up slowly, and so is Sagres - with some beautiful sunny days last week! Today it's a little cloudy but that doesn't stop the surf school from going out to have fun - remember we have super cosy wetsuits and when you're active and enjoying yourself it's the best way to keep warm!
The weather forecast is getting better and it should be a sunshine and blue sky..
Monica’s been working in the surf shop for almost 7 years already, since she joined the Sagres Natura happy family in 2011! We can’t count how many surf lessons she’s booked in and surfboard rentals have passed through her hands, or how many people she’s helped with all things surf-related. What we do know is..
It’s one month until we open the surf school and surf camp and we have space for some new staff this year. If you’re in Portugal already, or planning to come to stay in Sagres this year, we invite you to contact us about our job vacancies.
The easy one to organise of our plans is that we begin to offer some promotions and special deals - we’ve thought of many special offers, competitions, prizes and some very nice gifts that we look forward to sharing with you.
So we just want to say... Dear people who made the season of 2016 so very special for us, thank you for joining us in the surf camp and at surf school this year!
We had a wonderful spring, summer and autumn in Sagres and we couldn’t have done it without you! And we’re sure from all the happy salty sun-kissed faces, smiling party surfy people, that you all enjoyed just as much your time with us in the beautiful Algarve.
