WHAT TO EXPECT
→ This destination has it all to be a true Girlzactive destination, next to the beautiful house, perfect kite destination and the wind that comes in almost every afternoon, the village has cute shops, good bars and nice restaurants. We will bring you to the spot with our boat to create a private beach for the kitesurfing, organizes healthy barbecues, sings at the campfire and we have a school full of (board) toys we like! Think of wake boarding behind the boat or under the cable, a lot of wave surf equipment, SUP boards, mountainbikes and so on…
→ As an extra addition to this trip we coach the advanced with video analyses, go behind the boat for a wakeboard session or grab the surfboards to catch the waves, depending on which board you prefer!
→ Next to this we offer four nice yoga sessions per week in the mornings, give you advise on how to warm up before your session and stretch out after. We will prepare daily breakfast and healthy lunch packages to take to the spot and last but not least, take you out for a nice diner in different restaurants during 5 nights per week. Like you are used to, all is included in our packages prices.
→ We created a wonderful 8 or 11days package, with everything included, so you don’t have to think about anything more than your wetsuit, kite gear or which bikini you will wear! Just relax from the moment you leave the plane and we will bring you to our kite house.
→ Unique about our camp in Esposende is our activity centre, always open during daytimes, IKO certified teachers around, warm showers, changing rooms and there will be staff around to serve you a drink, advice you what to buy in our surf shop or helps you finding nice activities to do next to the kitesurfing. You can rent a bike, grab a skateboard, go canyoning, paddle out on one of the SUP / surf boards, go wakeboarding or just hang around to chill.
→ After a pleasant day on the beach or an adventurous day with new kitesurfing experiences, it can be nice to just let yourself doze off in a comfortable couch with a nice drink, while the night falls and it slowly gets dark. Often you can share your experiences and impressions with other guests at the house or activity centre, or if the mood calls for entertainment, maybe a surf related film could tempt those interested. Of course we will organize a big bbq night and when interested we take you outside for a drink and dance, there is a famous big nightclub available nearby for the one that still have some energy left.
