We have always had massive emphasis on FOOD at Surf Experience but Rachel has taken this to a stratospheric level.

We and you as a guest are super lucky to have her onboard. She has real dedication to create our food, to finding local produce, local support plus nutrition.

The everyday lunches and surfhouse dinners twice a week are beyond restaurant level and all part of any surf experience.

We are often asked about the most important thing a surf camp can provide. Our answer. FOOD.

We can cater for specialist diets upon request.


Originally from Newcastle, nutritionist Rachel Snow has been working for The Surf Experience in Lagos, Portugal for the last 3 years, where she provides the guests with nutritiously balanced food to aid their continual surfing progress.

Rachel started her own love affair with surfing at the age of 39 and it was during these early stages that she gained an appreciation for the physical and mental aptitude required when learning to surf. To further her abilities, Rachel headed to The Surf Experience on a holiday and not long after returned to start life as an employee, providing a more nutritionally balanced array of meals for guests.
