Portugal in May (best spots, surf camps and car?)« on: April 25 2012 14:04:00 »
Hi there me and my buddy are South African and are currently in the UK, We have been bodyboarding in Cornwall but its super cold and the waves are rubbish! Its never hollow and has no speed like South Africa. We decided to go for 4 days to Lisbon over my birthday around 19th May and would love any advise you could give on the following:
1) BEST SPOTS IN MAY? (FOR LEFTS, BEACH BREAKS, RAMPS AND BARRELS)
2) BEST CENTRAL PLACE TO STAY? (PREFERABLY ON THE BEACH)
3) IS IT BEST TO HIRE A CAR? Or JUST USE TRAINS ETC
Thanks guys really appreciate it and we can't wait to get in the water ;)

Thanks guys, we have booked for 19th-22nd May and will hire a car it has been decided. We are really hoping to get good waves like the videos we see at Supertubos, Ericeira and Nazare. Nice powerful and hollow beach break with big ramps :)
Thanks D, i will look at the other 2 spots you mentioned and will contact you again in 2 weeks :)
