Surf Portugal - Quick Facts
POPULATION: 10,500,000
LANGUAGE: Portuguese ( but almost everyone speaks English)

Portugal has a very mild climate with solid surf often with offshore morning breezes are extremely common, making it a popular surfing destination for surfers from inside and outside Europe. Portugal has a huge variety of waves and swell size and as a result makes an ideal surfing location for surfers of every ability. It is a good place to learn to surf with lots of places offering surf lessons and packages.

Situated west of Spain, Portugal picks up north, west and south swells, making surf conditions very consistent. During winter the swell size is around the 6ft mark but can get to 15ft or more, making it a spot for those looking for challenging surf. There is surf throughout the summer months and you can expect waves of 3-5ft.

There are many different waves and surf over the whole coast so a bit of research before you go is a good idea (see the Stormrider guide Europe link at the bottom of this page). The area around Peniche is ideal as the peninsular gives the opportunity to make the best of the weather conditions. A couple of waves to check out while you are surfing in Portugal are Pedra Blanca, Supertubos and Coxos.

Praia pequena (small beach)

Praia pequena is the beach just next to praia grande, and during low tide you can go from one to another.
It's a really small beach that almost disapear during the high tide, it doesn't have a restarante or a cafe, but that is great, because it means that you'll have a few less guys surfing.

A lot of bodyboards go there, but i also o there for's really good beach, no parking problems during the winter..but during the summer it's as near to hell as you can get.

there isn't that much to say..just be careful with the locals, dont leave anything in sight because, you can see your car but, it's a good 10 minutos walk to go back up again. there are also so precutions to have with the rocks, specialy in the high tide.

next time i'll talk about buying things and making repairs in your boards, in the lisbon area.
