Surfers in Lisbon? Studying there for 6 months

Hi guys,

I'm leaving in 10 days to Lisbon for half a year. I'll be there "studying"... I love outdoor sports and would love to do a great deal of surfing while I'm in Portugal. I'm a total beginner, so I'll have to learn everything. I could use some help from more experienced surfers for buying a board (2nd hand?), getting to the right spots, hanging out,... Planning on travelling around the country and Spain aswell, so I'm always in for a roadtrip or putting or thumbs out in the wind...

Let me know if you want to hang out!

Hi Hannes,

Youre having the best atitude to come to Portugal to study and learn Surfing ;)

Portugal has a very rich coast for surfing, besides a strong culture and magnificent landscapes. It is very nice place to learn surfing, we have places for all skills... The most recognised places are Lisbon Area, Ericeira, Peniche and Costa Vicentina.

If you need help ive already traveled/surfed all along Portugal and it´s islands, ill would be very happy assist you on this Journey and help you to find the best places...

If you need advice to get accomodation anywhere in Portugal, where to surf, arrange board and transport to the spots just let me know...

Ill be very pleased to help you to get the best impression of my country...

RE: surfers in Lisbon

Hi guys,

I'll be doing my internship in portugal from feb 2013 till july.
been surfing for some years now and, since we hadn't had any swell the last 3 weeks in Holland, i'm really excited to get to surf for 6 months in portugal. I haven't found any place to stay yet, so if you know anyone who loves to surf , escpecially during the weekends because then I'm free, and has a room for rent let me know!
Also, If anyone wants to hang out, visit some (not to crowdy) spots of ga along for a small trip along the coast during the weekends send me an email.
hannes, enjoy your stay!
cheers lucy
