Water temp in Oporto in August

Is it possible to go surfing with just boardshorts and rashie in August or is a wetsuit to recomend? what´s the average temperature during August?

Hey Ola, the water temperature is not so hot as you would expect. It depends on where you arebut normally around 16 to 18 degrees. As for clothing....well if you feel the cold go for a suit. 3/2 is more than enough and if you got a shortie then, go for it.
Hope it helps, take care and enjoy!
