Club Vagabond is a local surf school in Vila Nova de Milfontes, located in the Nature Park of South West Alentejo, a stunning and wild stretch of European coastline. Over the years a great synergy between a community of surfers, friends, artists, yogis, travellers and locals led to the creation of Club Vagabond in 2019 – a unique, personal and indpendent surf school. Here you will find a relaxing and professional atmosphere. In addition to the surf school we also have a small co-working space and boutique surf. Come visit us!
