    Description

    searching for a team

    We are surf camp, that takes place on west coast of Portugal close to the beach of Vale Figueiras (2 km away),one of the best beach breaks of Portugal!
    We started the camp in 2003. Since then we have been always improving, so we got the Surf Resort Villa, where we accommodate our guests and work. It is awsome Huge House with lawn and swimming pool, skate ramp, etc. And we have "old camp", where we used to accomodate guests before, in bungalows. But now we all live there in the "old camp" side.
    We are situated in the middle of the Alentejo Natural Park, we chose the place which is wild and out of the city rush and traffic to get a more relaxing and chilling atmosphere.
    We can also stay all together with our pets in the place, and still the big cities like Sagres and Lagos can be reached in less than 30 minutes drive!! We have a public bus less than 2 km away, that can bring you to Aljezur or Lagos. We live here as one big family, sharing the way of life with positive vibes, love and friendliness!:)
    all surfers, by the way)

    We provide with all the facilites of the Resort, yoga lessons, bikes, and surf lessons.

    We live as a community and group of people, that get used to live and work together. We are chilled and open, but we used to hard work and help to each other.
    We are not a big company, and live as one big family. We would be happy to make you feel like staying in a community or family!! At the same time we expect respectful and honest attitude toward the work. This is the most important for us for we avoid misunderstanding.
    We look for a fast, easy-going person, that happy to work!
