Surf Ericeira Christmas« on: October 20 2012 17:10:00 »
I'm going to go in Ericeira for Christmas, i have some questions...
i'm a bit scared to have "no surf" days because of the size of big swells that are not such unusual during december, i would like to ask you witch spots still work when the swell is big or even when it's medium swell but wind ruin most of the exposed waves...
i will stay in Ericeira, but actually i don't want to rent a car, so is possible to reach the spots on foot?
I thought that bike could be ok, do you know cheap bike hire? (cheap means < 9/10€ per day)

I would be fancied to meet up with a group! Actually i already made my reservation in a cheap hostel, in the center of Ericeira, but i would really go surfing with someone, stay in the wather with other people is even safer than by our own, and i read that is not unusual to find desert line up in the beach breack during december, witch is good ( but only if you know very well currents, hazards and all the stuff)! other spots like Ribeira d' ilhas if works usually are crowded, so no problem in that case, but what about the distance!? Do you have a car?

About the spots that can hold big swells, we have only one in Ericeira area, but we're having a big storm for these days, and the forecast seems to be "gentle" with the surf for the next few weeks.
About the bikes with surf racks, we at the Ericeira Surf Center have them at 12,00€ a day (24 hours). All of our bikes are from Specialized-HardRock model with 29" wheels, and they're brand new.
