Surfing in August in Algarve

I am a beginner surfer and am not sure where's the best place to start in Algarve.  I've taken a few lessons in the past and would do so again.  It seems that Sagres has the better waves and Lagos is the place to party?  I also found a surf school in Portimao and was told that there's pretty good nightlife there as well.  I have 7 days and would also like to explore some of the other cities such as Albufeira and Vilamoura after surfing if there's time.  Any suggestions in order to help me plan my trip would be greatly appreciated.  I will be on my own.  Tks!
