Surfing in South Portugal (near Carrapateira / Zavial)« on: April 26 2006 10:04:00 »
My friend and I are staying with some guys playing golf(!) on the Algarve but we want to go surfing instead. I don't want to take out my 9'6" board (I don't trust Easyjet) so we were wondering:
- Where's the best place to hire boards in the area (we're prepared to drive up to 1hr to surf and hire stuff)?
- Are there any good breaks near Pinheiros Altos (where we are staying)?
- Any good surf schools in the area (so that we can improve - we spend most of our time at Saunton riding longboards, but we'd like to progress)
Any help would be much appreciated and, if we see you out there, I'm sure we can shout you a beer in return!

I'm sure you have a surf school in arrifana, its a bit further north of carrapateira, but in sagres (south) you have loads of surfshops and a couple of schools...you can send me an email with the exact location, like the village or city next to Pinheiros Altos (not sure where it is), it would be easier to help you out;
