The past 10 years The Surf Experience surf school have been representing the Algarve leg of the tour but these past two years in co-ordination with Grupo Adega da Marina, Lagos Camara, Lagos schools' sports Association and Neci we really have created the best day of the year.

The Portuguese Surf Adaptive Association (Surf Addict) is known for its catch-phrase FACTORY OF SMILES and it sure does this!

Now based on the excellent Porto do Mos beach, Lagos, alongside Campimar Concession the Ocean team consisted of 4 teams of 4; the Associations' members as team leaders, 2 qualified surf coaches from TSE and one PE teacher from Lagos schools.

The ocean gods shone down on us as the perfect conditions of 1 - 2 ft glassy waves rolled in under the morning sun. The total number of participants reached 40 with the majority coming from NECI & Lagos schools. We had a few arrive on the open invitation including a former Iceland Alpine World Competitor. Conditions ranged from physical, and mental health conditions and blindness.

The energy and happiness combined with the thrill of the ocean in a safe environment makes this simply the best day for all of us.

We hope to create a BIANNUAL event whereby the regularity can go beyond borders to encourage families to travel to the Algarve with one of these days as the reason for coming.
