SPECIAL MEASURES DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

To make all of our guests feel safe we want to guarantee that we do take special safety measures in order to prevent the spread of the COVID -19. As you might be aware of, there hasn’t been any cases of the virus in our municipality and to keep it that way we are following all of the health and safety recommendations from our national health organization (DGS) and the Portuguese Surfing Federation.

These recommendations and measures will make you feel very safe during your surf experience and able to enjoy it the most.

This means respecting social distance of 1,5 meters and wearing a mask in closed places or common areas (of course we don’t need a mask to surf, just on the meeting area at the office and at the car park at the beach, after we go to the beach you don’t need it anymore, unless you want to go to the beach restaurant).

The surf school will be running with less students per teacher – 1 surf coach for 5 students and maximum of 10 students with 2 teachers in a open space of 50 meters (4 meters of distance between everyone).

We will have to ask you and all the other students to take your car and drive your car to the beach.

All the surf equipment will be disinfected and all the safety measures will be taken care by us.

You will need to disinfect he hands before the lessons (we will provide hand disinfectant);

Once at the beach your equipment will be given to you and you can’t share it with anyone else;

After the use of the equipment it will be disinfected and stored for next day.

Regarding the wetsuits, you will keep them during your stay, after you leave they will be disinfected and put in quarantine for 72hours in the sun, until they can be used again.

So everything is being taken care of in order to be COVID-19 free 😉
