Roxy 2.0 is a Girls Only Intermediate Surf Camp Week. A unique surf safari with dedicated tuition to fast track your surfing.

Following our the huge success of our Roxy weeks, we are excited to introduce it's evolution, Roxy 2.0. Our girls only intermediate surf course, perfect for those in a surfing rut or looking to progress their surfing in time for winter adventures in the southern hemisphere.


Who’s the week for?

You’ve been on a couple of surf holidays and weekend trips but feel like you’re surfing is stuck in a rut. 

You’re catching unbroken waves but would like more tuition on positioning and improving your take offs. 

You’d like to learn how read forecasts and choose the best spot for your level. 

You’d like to move on to hardboards.

You can paddle out back, but would like more water confidence. 

You’d like to learn more about surf etiquette so you can surf independently with confidence! 


March, May & October are the ideal times for intermediate surfers in the Algarve. With winter swells making their way to our west coast line, our south coast beaches will be picking up fun sized waves. With less of a battle to get out back, you’ll have plenty of energy to catch unbroken waves, build water confidence and start working on controlled turns.

Whilst the rest of Europe slips into winter, the Algarve maintains a comfortable 24 degrees daily! With the water heating up all summer, now is the time to enjoy surfing in shorties or 3/2 mm wetsuits. The beaches are empty and so are the line ups, please don't tell the world about our secret summer month!
