surfing in Portugal in January

« on: January 02 2013 08:01:00 »

I am free this whole winter and am hoping to surf in Portugal in January. Where is the best place to stay and to rent a board? I am a Montana girl and have spent some time surfing in Costa Rica and Hawaii but am still a new surfer. I hope to meet some people to hang out and surf with!

Definitely go to Peniche, stay in one of the surf houses/hostels and take lessons (you'll progress faster and it's as cheap as hiring a board). Enjoy!

Hi Jess,

Portugal is definitely the spot in Europe to go Surfing. January its a pretty slow month about about tourists. If you are up to have always someone to hangout and surf with you should choose a surfcamp, this concept encompasses all about surfing always with someone. We are the ALENTEJO SURF CAMP in Sw Portugal, region of Alentejo, right north of Agarve.

Take a look at our website and let us know.

Best regards.
