Balance, strength and agility are elements that you want to get right when you're surfing. Sun & Earth is one of our surf vacations that combine surfing with classic yoga. Vinyasa Flow is the main type of yoga you will practice during this week. This type of yoga is the alignment of breaths with movements in asanas while practising yoga. The lessons can be at the camp or in a Studio considering the number of participants and weather conditions and there is no previous experience required.
If you have never surfed before, want a quick recap or already have some experience this surf holiday is ideal for you. On the first lesson, you'll be assessed and grouped according to your experience and coached in small groups. We keep a ratio of 5 or fewer guests per instructor to guarantee quality, safety and FUN. 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 back side 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 surf coaches are well trained, very helpful and energetic. They will stay with you at your pace or level of skills if necessary, to open up the magic world of surfing. Follow their instructions and trust yourself and you will have fun in the waves. Happy days are not only a motto for the crew. As a guest I felt welcome and looked after if needed. There are many helping hands in the background that keep the place organized, clean and jolly. The house is beautifully decorated, spacious and well maintained in any way.. Also Yoga in the courtyard. Ericeira itself is a wonderful spot to hang out in town or at the beach.
My second visit to Magikvanilla, learning to surf with my sons was even better than the first visit. This place is truly magical! Steve and Suzie are amazing hosts and the surf instructors, Andre, Miguel, Giorgio and Steve's care and enthusiasm made every day in the waves a joy. The BBQ on Wednesday felt like being part of a wonderful family, with talented guests and staff singing and playing guitars. The yoga was the perfect way to relax after surfing. The rooms are clean and stylish, not too fancy, but with a nice surfer vibe. This place will forever be my go-to place when I need to relax, chill out and get back into the water. Go, you will not be disappointed.
Steve, J.Lo and Andre are patient and attentive instructors and they really put safety first - closely followed by fun. Steve truly is the most encouraging and enthusiastic person ever! Haha. It is clear that their main priority is that everyone enjoys themselves and they do their best to make sure everyone feels at ease and safe, even in difficult conditions and they try their hardest to make sure even the most incompetent beginners (like myself) catch at least one good wave every surf! The time you're in the water flies by but 4 lessons a week is probably enough although they do offer an extra lesson for a reasonable amount.I highly recommend the massage and yoga - absolute heaven! Really great way to ease up tired muscles after a week of surfing and feel fresh as.
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 & Earth combine two activities Surfing and Yoga. Balance, strength and agility are elements that you want to get right when you're surfing so this package is the right choice.
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 back side 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.
