Thanks for the link. I'll take a look.
I was worried it would be flat on the south coast like south devon. But you think it should be good!!!
Have you surfed the south coast of portugal - when did you go?

The nsouth coast is better in the winter time when there's more south swells. Warmer water as well. But the west coast can have offshores for days as well.

I'm just back from surfing the Algarve and I had a great time. The west coast of the Algarve was much better than the south. Hire a car! The distance between each beach is not to bad (some are very close to each other). Sagres is pronounced more like Sagg-Resh.
I have tones of photo's of each beach which I'm trying to upload on to this website, but I keep getting errors, hopfully I'll have some on soon.
You should definitely check out Arrifana & Monte Clerigo. Amado gets very crowed & the water quality was very poor! Castelejo is NOT a sandy beach, very large stones!
Enjoy your surfing!

I live down here. What do you mean, that the water quality in Amado is very poor? There is nothing to complain about.

I have just got back last night.
No waves on the south coast but the west was fantastic.
The area around Carrapateira has really good beach breaks.
The water quality was good. I took my board but what ever you need you can hire.
The only thing I would say - Portugal you are probably ok. But I wouldn't piss in the water else where - Sharks can sense piss twice as far than blood. That is one of the ways they track pray - all prey piss not many are bleeding!!!
So when in south africa etc piss away if you want!!
