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.

One of the main issues, about a trio is always this "WHERE I'M I GOING TO SLEEP"

but are a lot of places in the lisbon all depends on how much you want to pay...

my first choice is Muchaxo the link is

rates starting in 58 euros in

is the sea can wake up with a great beach view..and decide if you are going to surf or if you are going back to bed... it is something like 50 meters from the the low tide... If you stay can also go to one of my favorite restaurants... amazing pizza and another italian foods in Tiffosi...just five minutes away by car...

Ericeira, is probably, one of the Portugal areas with more surf spots... there are a lot of spots, and every one of them is really different from the other, and the same surf spot can be be different in the low tide or the high tide...

in the weekend there are a lot of outsiders, and during the week there aren´t many locals...except in the summer...

ericeira, is for me the surf Mecca of europe.. ribeira de ilhas..thats where i'll start.

ribeira de ilhas is where all the big surf contests are... you have a really long wave...most of times, suitable for all kind of surfers..even for longboarders..

but there are also some days, when it gets really big...

Most off days there is a the beginning, when you leave the sand you'll get really close to the rocks..and if your surf level is something like a begginer.. you'll be really affraid.

tomorow i'll speak a little bit more about ribeira de ilhas

but for me..a image is more then a lot of words..see for yourself..try and googleit
