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.

Surf evolution in lisbon

I've been trying to have some evolution in my surf performance for the last 2 years...But i wasn't very successful, because i had a lot of bad habits that came from other sports, and because i had a natural lack of talent!

So it all started something like 2 months ago. when a friend of mine decided to start surfing, and he never even tried. And what happened was that in the second day he was standing up!! and it was something that took me almost 1 month to get!!

And his evolution was very quick.No only because he was using the right board for him, but also because he had someone to teach him.

and so i decided to get some classes for me in his school.

The first thing was to use a board that was the right one for my skill level, and second was to have someone saying that i shouldn't do this or to try and stand lo...and a lot of other things that i wasn't doing the way i should.

And the last month my evolution was bigger then in tha last year.

If any one need some help for the same reasons did please send me an e-mail andi'll give you a bunch of surf schools contacts!!!

cheers mate!
