This a very special package, it combines two activities Surfing and Aerial Yoga, together they can improve your flexibility, strength and balance. Aerial Yoga takes you into a more holistic experience. This type of yoga combines the traditional yoga poses, Pilates and dance with the use of a hammock. It explores advanced posture more easily which will help you with your surf lessons. The sessions are taken in a local yoga studio and catered for small groups (maximum 6 people per session). This new yoga approach doesn’t require previous experience.
For the Surf Lessons you don’t need experience, we can teach you if you never surfed before, if you want a quick recap or already have some experience. You will be grouped according to your level. For first-timers we will introduce you to surfing but by the end of the week we hope you will be standing on a surfboard for the first time and hooked for life;) To more experienced surfers conditions allow, you will be catching some green waves out the back and improving your skills to make you a better surfer. We always aim to teach on a beach break (sandy beach) even if we need to drive further along the coast.
Overall we will be looking to learn/improve your pop-up and paddle techniques, front side and backside turns, help you with wave timing and with the video analysis session you will be able to watch and talk through the areas you are already smashing and the ones you can improve.
7 Nights Accommodation - Breakfast - 4 Surf Lessons (2h Each) - 1 Video Analysis Session - 2 Aerial Yoga Sessions - Tea & Coffee Available All Day - Free Use of The Surf Camp Facilities. (Towels & Bed Cloths provided)
The Yoga Ericeira Shala was created in 2009, aiming to create a familiar environment, cosy and suited for the practice of Yoga. In 2016 the studio moved closer to the centre of Ericeira, becoming a space more accessible to all, inspired by the energy of the ocean, and colours of this beautiful Town. Each day Joana and her team of yoga teachers work to teach and share the practice of Yoga, both as an art and as a lifestyle.
Magicvanilla is way more than just a guesthouse! I've been there three times now and would always go back for another great surf holiday. They got excellent, funny and powerful instructors- which makes it easy for beginners to get started. Staff, house facilities and food - exactly how you need it and mostly a little more. Be careful, you might find a second home....
I booked a week's holiday hoping to get a bit of surfing experience, meet some nice people and stay in a pretty area and my expectations were exceeded! The owners and staff were open, warm and welcoming and the hostel had a distinct backpacker vibe to it but with 4 stars.The surfing lessons were extremely professional, and the instructors were all very patient, supportive and encouraging. A big thank you to Steve, Susie, Denver, JLo, Andre and the girls for a truly magical experience! I would highly recommend Magikvanilla to everyone!
I first came to this magikal place last year with my little sister. I was so amazed that I came back this year with 8(!!!) of my friends from college and each and every one of them loved it as much as I did. Even though the conditions where very tough this time they made us surf green waves, practicing turns and even little tricks on the board. Found many new friends that I hope to see again soon. We're planing a reunion for next May. This will be my third visit there then I can t wait for it to come. Steve and Susie are giving their best to offer you an amazing time. can totally recommend magikvanilla to everyone who is open minded and interested in having a really, really good time!!!
If you really want to make the most out of your summer holidays this is the ideal option for you. Most Guests that stayed for a week wish to stay longer;)
Sun & Air combine two activities Surfing and Aerial Yoga, together they will improve your flexibility, strength and balance and with two weeks under your belt, the better are the results.
To enrol in these two courses you don’t need any experience. This package is ideal for beginners and intermediate levels and it will be the ideal option if you want to take your skills a bit further.
During surf lessons in these two weeks overall we will be looking to learn/improve your pop-up and paddle techniques, front side and backside turns, help you with wave timing and with the video analysis session you will be able to watch and talk through the areas you are already smashing and the ones you can improve. The ratio between instructors and guests is 5 or less allowing more time in the water, immediate feedback and more fun. After all the best surfer out there is the one having the most fun.
