Surfness Lodge

Dear potential volunteer, thank you for your interest in our project and for your time to write an application to us. So, before you move forward to send us your request, please, read carefully all the informations about this position. Then you can save your time, and help us to save ours too ;) First of all, it's important that you know that we are creating a very ambitious project here, and you, dear young Padawan, are a quite important piece in this puzzle. That's why we need to be sure that you have the minimum skill set we need before we move forward to our eventual first contact. We'll only want/accept the best volunteers ever to join our team/family. Keep this in mind. So, please, instead of a long introduction about yourself, about what you like to do and how the last years of your life were, try to be more sharp and say clearly how you think you can meet our needs, especially the part where we say what we expect from you. This said, let me tell you a bit about what are you gonna find in our project 👌🏼😎 This whole area has an incredible energy with imposing cliffs, beautiful beaches, stunning sunsets and perfect waves almost the whole year. Our lodge is a very cozy, good vibe and homey place just in front of those beauties. We are not a crazy party hostel, but celebrating good moments together is definitely part of our DNA. Our guests are amazing and interesting people from all over the world with whom you can create a nice network. Here they really feel at home, part of a family and always want to come back for long stays. And, to keep this atmosphere, we need like-minded people who understand our philosophy and are totally committed to our mission: to make this place fells like a home for everyone. And one important aspect for this is, unfortunately, we can't accept less than 2 months as your minimum stay (actually, 3 months is the ideal time for us). So, PLEASE, if you just have a short availability, consider to apply ONLY for a future opportunity, when you have more time available. (*The platform "forces" us to say that the minimum stay is 4 weeks, but this is not suitable for us. We hope you can understand 😉)

What kind of experience can we offer to you in return? Two/three months of a place to feel like home, people like you to call family. Amazing open-minded people from all over the world to grow your network and call them friends. The best surf spots in Europe to learn or improve your surfing skills 🏄🏻‍♂️. Unforgettable stunning sunsets 🏜. Good worldwide music 🎸. Moments for sharing a delicious Portuguese food 🧀, in a beautiful international community 🌎, with an even better Portuguese wine 🍷. Sleepy nights to the sound of the waves 🌊. And, lots of simple personal moments - when this place does its magic - which only you will know ☀️🌱.
