Gota dÀgua Surf camp & school was founded in 2014, on the coast of Caparica, south of Lisbon, Portugal. Since then, we thrive to share our genuine passion for surfing to our clients and friends as well as the experience of gliding on the waves of the sea and the pleasure of sharing these moments with people from all over the world!
With the arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic, our lives were abruptly and unexpectedly interrupted, which in turn decisively affected the functioning of the surf camp and surf school. This new challenge made us wonder how we could continue to offer all our customers and friends the same experience and quality we always have had dedicated ourselves to achieve.
We have reflected on how to tackle this social and health issue; while keeping in mind our great wish to continue offering a unique and unforgettable experience! We are prepared and eager to welcome you to the family, where we will be devoted offer you a dream vacation!
The most important for Gota dÀgua is the health and safety of our team, clients and friends. We made important changes to the surf camp and surf school to safeguard the safety and health of everyone visiting Gota dÀgua Surf Camp. Our intention are to transmit a clear message of all the decisions and adaptations we have made to both the surf camp and surf school.
Gota dÀgua has adopted the Clean & Safe certification of Turismo de Portugal, thus following all the rules and adaptations imposed by this governmental entity to guarantee the safety of visitors, customers and friends. The entire Gota dÀgua team received specific training by the Portuguese Directorate-General for Health and we are duly prepared to receive all those who intend to visit us!
