Where in Portugal?

« on: February 14 2014 23:02:00 »

Hi,

Me and four other friends are planning to go and learn how to surf in Portugal. I have read quite a few posts but still I do not know where to go. If anyone could me any information I would appreciate! So We are planning to go in summer July/August for a week, I read that Ericeira and Peniche are the best, but as I said we are quite beginners and we are looking to learn and enjoy the water and in the evening have some beer or two in the city. I do now know which destination would suit us best to learn and have some fun afterwards?

Thanks in advance for any advice! ;-)

Hi!
We at Ride351 provide surf experiences in Portugal with all that you and your friends need. We have programs to the North, Central or South Coast of Portugal.

The best spots to learn how to surf are located at Central Coast (Cascais, Ericeira and Peniche) and South Coast (Sines, Vila Nova de Milfontes and Aljezur). The Central Coast has several urban beaches and is more crowed, special at the time that you pretend to come. The South Coast has less crowed beaches, warmer water and amazing bays.

More about what we do at www.ride351.com

All the best and good waves!

Peniche is good for beginners and so is algarve. If you want to stay in a city then you could stay in Lisbon, Porto, Faro or Lagos. For Lisbon I recommend biglisboa.com to get information from. enjoy the surf

Hi
No doubt that Portugal is the best place to start, great waves, warm water, sun and excitement, there are numerous surf schools with great teachers and places with fantastic accommodation with lots of entertainment.
the best area is Lagos Algarve because the waters and climate, are warmer and these two coasts near the south coast and west coast we always have good surfing conditions around.
Lagos is also good because it is a city with an atmosphere divertida.com unforgettable nights.

In this May I was for the first time on surfing in Peniche in a pleasant place - "Ocean Ferrel Surf Camp". It's a lovely friendly and comfortable place with experienced and cheerful instructors, who can teach everyone (even if you have never seen water))) Near this camp there are a few cafes, bakeries, restaurants and shops. Also you can walk to the beach (from camp it takes not so long) and drink tasty portuguese beer:) This camp is a 2-floor building with a few flats. Every flat consists of 2 or 1 rooms, a bathroom and a living-room and a kitchen. All are decorated in a colorful pleasant style. They hold barbecue-parties and going out to the interesting places. But what is more important that you will enjoy surfing there and I'm sure come back again:) "Relax, have fun. go surfing"

I have surfed around Cascais, near Viana do Castelo and in Peniche. Peniche was definately my favorite. It has both a world class wave as well as a nice beach for beginners, so no matter what skill level you can´t go wrong with Peniche. I ended up staying at the Peniche Kitecenter, a very chilled out place run by this really cool couple(João and Cristina if I remember correctly) It was awesome and I would highly recommend it, as my girlfriend was riding waves already the first lesson she took there, since I don´t have the patience to teach anyone :) here´s their site: penichekitecenter.com  hope this helps & enjoy your trip!
