Say what?! A SUP Surf Camp in Peniche
In the little town of Peniche, you will find one of the largest traditional fishing ports in Portugal as well as many maritime-tourist activities. It is here where you will not only enjoy a walk through the historic centre, filled with Nossa Senhora dos Remédios Sanctuary, the São Pedro and Misericórdia Churches, but also have a hard time choosing from the many activities that you can choose from. If you enjoy maritime activities, and surfing in particular, you have definitely heard about the Supertubos off Medão Grande Beach - known as one of Portugal’s 7 Wonders – as well as Lagido Beach, making Peniche a must-visit.
This is where Leo Nika has built his business – a SUP Surf Camp. As a professional Stand Up Paddler, SUP surfer and instructor, he developed his own unique and effective teaching methods where he teaches some of the greatest athletes in the world. “We focus on getting your body and mind focused on the game.” He hosts several camps throughout the year, where he teaches people with different levels of experience, flat water stand up paddling, SUP surfing, wing foiling and much more. In between the SUP sessions, there are comprehensive debriefs of the water sessions as well as flexibility, stretch, strength and core sessions to help you perfect your performance on and off the water. Transport, accommodation, breakfasts, and a welcoming dinner is included in most camps (except if noted otherwise) and depending on the camp, yoga sessions, skate sessions, tourist activities and photo footage could also be included. You can enquire about the upcoming camps on the website.

As a Starboard team rider, Leo is incredibly experienced with these products and has tried and tested it from the making of the products.
