Hassle free trips, without language problems, public transports, surfboard transportation, etc. It is all organised, from your arrival to the airport to your stat in comfortable and clean accommodation, good meals, transport to the beaches, use of surf material, etc.

We also organize summer surf camps for teenagers with different activities and language courses. These summer camps are run by reliable professionals. The minors are supervised 24 hours a day.

WHY TRAVEL WITH NOMADSURFERS ?
Unlike other "surf travel agencies" we know what we are selling and recommending... Plus we are surfers! We personally visit each destination regularly to make sure that the selected destinations meet the high quality required. Clean accommodation, good surf courses, good food, and close to good surf spots. So be careful when booking through an agency in internet. Will they be reliable? Compare it with Nomadsurfers.com ! Check how much content the website has and what impression the site gives you. Give them a telephone call.
IS BOOKING A SURF CAMP THROUGH AN AGENCY MORE EXPENSIVE ?
More and more good surfers and experienced travelers are booking through Nomad Surfers. After lots of traveling, we have come to the final conclusion that booking your holidays with a good agency is much cheaper and will minimize the risk of negative experiences.
Why? Because we have already committed those mistakes ourselves for you ! We have already tried and selected the best accommodations, surf camps and boat charters worldwide, so that you don't have to go through it. We carefully select the best and most professional businesses in each region to be part of Nomad Surfers. The owners of each business are usually the best or first surfers of these areas. Nomad Surfers only works with the best ! So you can be sure that you will be in good hands.
Someone will be at the airport to meet you, regardless of what time you arrive. Your beds will be ready. Your food will be ready. Clean rooms. Proper toilets !The best local surf guides in the area that will advise you where to go surf and when. What tides, what winds, where to go in and out of the water, etc. They will take you to that magical place that you would never in the world find on your own or would take ages to do so, wasting your precious time !
If you only have one or two weeks holiday, you don't want to be taking any risks and running around blindfolded. You want to get every minute worth of surfing. For those who thought that it is cheaper and cooler to travel without booking previously ...
People who thought that way, probably ended up paying more ... and the quality of their vacations was much worse, compared with being advised properly by booking through a specialized surf travel agency!Sometimes you arrive to a country you have never been before and when leaving the arrivals terminal at the airport, you are literally assaulted by 50 persons yelling at you in an unknown language, harassing you to you get a taxi or take you to a hostel, etc, etc. These situations are chaotic... especially if you still have to change money ! You are very tired but need to stay smart and awake...
After some intense and stressful moments, you eventually get money from the ATM and jump into a taxi. All you know is the name of the surf place you want to go to, and think that when you get there you will find a cheap place to stay just walking around. The problem is that this taxi driver rips you off and charges twice as much as you should pay. Not only this, but he takes you to a hostel of his family or where he gets commissioned.
You don't like the place too much, it smells, dirty sheets, dirty floor, dirty bathroom, etc, but it is too late at night to change and all reception desks at nearby hostels are closed. So you have to spend at least the first night here in these dreadful conditions. I find important that after a long flight, checking in, making flight connections, running through airports, going through customs etc, you get a good comfortable first night sleep the day you arrive.
Next morning, after a very uncomfortable first night, you grab again your luggage and surfboards to look for another place to stay. Walking for ages under the scorching sun or heavy rain... You might find somewhere that looks alright, but will need to change again after a couple of nights for whatever reason. Maybe there are bed bugs (very common in cheap exotic accommodations), maybe the food is bad, or even harmful ! In cheap places, its very easy to get sick on food. If you get sick, your holidays are ruined ! It is bad to be sick, but to be sick while you're away is really bad ! Packing your bags again and again, here you are trying to find the right place ... till the end of your precious holidays !Cheap often is expensive !
IS BOOKING THROUGH NOMADSURFERS MORE EXPENSIVE THAN BOOKING DIRECTLY TO THE SURFCAMP ?
Nomadsurfers works on commission and the price through us is exactly the same as the price you would pay if booking directly with the surfcamp or boat charter.
Advantages of booking surf holidays through NomadSurfers
By booking through Nomadsurfers, we will recommend you the best surf camp in the area, that best suits what you are looking for. We can describe it and tell you the good and bad things of each one. But if you contact the surfcamp directly, they will obviously always tell you that their place is the best and most wonderful one.
We want to send you to the most suitable place for you, building trust so that you will travel again with Nomadsurfers in the near future. We will always advise you with an impartial and objective opinion.
OUR PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE
Our philosophy of life is basically to enjoy it to the fullest. Have fun (Carpe Diem). In our case, fun is to surf and travel as much as possible, using surf as an excuse to discover other cultures, exotic places, and epic world class surf spots! We love animals! We believe in Karma! And believe that Traveling is the best university!
Nomad Surfers was was founded by Jose Gutierrez and started promoting snowboard camps in Les Diablerets, Switzerland, back in 1995. The office moved later to Carrapateira (Algarve, South Portugal) for eight years - the best surfing residence in Europe (in our opinion... after lots of traveling). Like a good Nomad Surfer, the office then moved for some years to Ibiza island.
Today, after many trips and adventures across the planet, Nomadsurfers is a well established and experienced company.
We offer many more destinations than any other surf travel agency on the planet. Over 150 destinations for the practice of all kind of board and extreme sports. Thanks to our efforts and professionalism during these years, Nomadsurfers enjoys the credibility of a serious company, recognized and respected on the Surf Market. We are proud to have provided unforgettable experiences to thousands of clients each year, to have received many grateful messages, and to continue offering exciting vacations to many new and recurring clients.
Although we maintain our main operations in Spain and Portugal, Nomad Surfers has openened a new branch on the island of Bali. But our staff is constantly traveling around the world to different destinations. Because we like to know what we are talking about when we are recommending a surf trip.
Our staff speak fluent French, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, Italian, German and English.
We can answer any of your questions regarding the accommodation, the beaches, the climate, the water temperature, the surf spots, the night life, the visas and vaccines, the public transport, the airlines, the best season to go, etc...Ask us for advice if you are looking for uncrowded surf spots. If you want the sickest hollow perfect barrels on the planet. If you want easy, fun, mellow waves.
If you are organizing a farewell surf trip. If you want an accommodation a bit more upgrade to go with your family, children, or girlfriend. If you want a surfing honeymoon. If money is not a problem and you want to go to Surf Paradise. Or if you don't have a lot of money and want the cheapest package. If you want any extra advice or want to book your vacation,
Hang Loose !
