Casa offshore: our kitesurf camp in the heart of Lagos
Casa Offshore is Extreme Algarve’s very own kitesurf lodge where we accommodate our camp guests. Perfectly located in central Lagos yet away from the nightlife’s noises. The town center, the beautiful cliffs and the beaches of Lagos are only a short walk from our camp and you’ll find a supermarket, ATM and a selection of restaurants right on our doorstep.
Our beautiful garden with hot tub and the swimming pool area with sun loungers and yoga deck provides the perfect chill-out spot after an active day on the beach. Prepare yourself a snack or cook up a storm in our fully equipped kitchen with fridge for personal use or have a drink on the covered terrace with your fellow surfers. The continental breakfast buffet is set out daily from 8 to 10am but other than that, Casa Offshore is a self-catering facility. Guests and staff alike gather weekly for our (in)famous BBQ nights with fresh food and drinks included (15 euro pp).
Our surf and kitesurf storages are located on site and the lodge is the starting point of your daily surf adventures!

Kitesurf lessons with Extreme Algarve
During the windy season, from June to August, a steady ‘Nortada’ wind kicks in almost every day just after lunch time. And this is when we get ready to go out and play with it! We usually leave around 2pm which gives you plenty of time to explore the Lagos area first or perhaps just chill out by our lovely pool. We’ll update you about departure times at breakfast. After you session we go back to camp to clean up and pack away the gear right in time for a well-deserved dinner.
We work with experienced and licensed instructors only and try to teach 3 hours per day, depending on the conditions. The course is based on the standards of the big kiteboarding organizations: IKO, VDWS and BKSA. You will be taught in groups of max 2 persons per kite and max 4 persons per instructor on new Airush kites. The flat water lagoon with its sandbanks is an ideal and safe learning environment for beginners and advanced riders alike.
Because we have access to a boat, we are currently one of the only schools that is able to teach in the lagoon at all tides.
How many lessons should I book?
We try to teach in slots of three hours per day. In the overview below you can find the average progression students make during group lessons. Of course, every person is different and might progress at a higher or lower pace.
During a beginner course you can expect to learn the following:
We always recommend a course of 12 hours for complete beginners. Hours can only be increased on the go if availability allows and the great thing about kitesurfing is that there is always something more to learn!
What’s included in the Extreme Algarve kitesurf course?
Some moves you may learn:
Not new to kitesurfing? You can rent gear with us under the following conditions:
If you want to rent gear and practice by yourself in the Alvor lagoon, you need to be able to ride safely upwind and have good kite control. We always go with the advice of the kite instructor when it comes to your level of independence. This means that on your first day of rental, you need to go at the same time as the lesson groups, so the instructors can assess your level.
Please email us ahead of time if you want to rent gear and advise us on your skill level. Lessons always have priority over rentals, but normally there should be enough gear available for some rentals.
Need transport? If we have enough space available you’re welcome to join us to the lagoon in the kitesurf truck for 15 euro per day.
