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.

in lisbon

in lisbon there is a lot to see. if you rent a car you can go to most places i've been talking about in the last posts, it's really easy to get there, the folks are quite friendly, and in most cases we don't have any kind of problems with other guys surfing our waves.

you have a lot of surfshops, quite some places where you can repair you board, rent some material or in the worst case scenario, buy a new one because you brokken yours.

for me, one of the best places to go and get surf material is ENERGIA TROPICAL, in malveira da serra, it's really near by guincho, and probally you'll be hosted by the one and only Alvaromm, or as we call him, Alvinho.

Alvinho is barzilian shaper that came to portugal a long time ago... he started with a small shop and now he has a surf shop, a factory, and always ..but always, a nice discount for you...

that is where i get all of mine material...because going to energia tropical is alwas a nice chance to talk with a great guy..

i've kind of sick since new years eave, and when i got ok i went away in work..

know i'm back to my beautiful city..and going back to my always great surf sessions in a near by surfspot.

I've reciving some e-mais about this site.

just wanna thanks every one
