Join us for a week of surfing with the Escape Tribe for a week of surfing, sup, yoga and networking with other entrepreneurs and career changers.



My name is Adam and I was part of the founding members Escape tribe in 2014. Shortly after I escaped to the Algarve where I now help to manage the Tiny Whale Surf Lodge in the peaceful countryside just outside of Lagos. 

Surfing was a big part of my transition from the corporate world so we've created a fun, healthy surf package especially for Escapers.

You'll spend the week surrounded by nature, relaxing in the company of other entrepreneurs and career changes helping you refocus and think about your next move.

Tiny Whale Surf Lodge (2 of 2)

Dates: 1st - 8th October

The Algarve is a hidden gem for outdoor sports and October is characterised by great weather, great waves and uncrowded beaches. You do not need to be an experienced surfer to attend the week, we'll be catering for all levels.  


One of our most popular activities, touring the caves and grottos of Lagos at sunrise, it's absolutely spectacular and an unforgettable experience.


 We provide the ultimate Portugal surf holiday experience with four separate levels of coaching depending on your individual ability. Our team of highly qualified surf coaches are experts in building confidence in a safe environment for first time surfers and can teach all the way up to advanced surfers wanting to push their surfing boundaries.  When your day's over you can relax at our lodge over a beer at our bar, dig into our dinners and talk waves around our campfire.


We have an incredible in-house yoga instructor. Miri does sessions every morning and evening in the garden of our Lodge. She does a unique blend of Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa flow and Yin yoga inspired classes. Focus on realignment, building strength and flexibility while stilling the mind and releasing stress through meditation and relaxation techniques.
