Sept is the rentree of the surf season. In the spots in the south (arround Carrapateira and Sagres) you'll find more surf-tourists, a lousy ambient (specially when it's small and everyone gets in the water) and perhaps less wave options, although the water is warmer and the coast is prestine. Near Lisbon you'll have plenty of option for almost all types and sizes of waves and winds (Guincho and Praia Grande when it's small, Costa Caparica and Carcavelos if it gets bigger). Further north you'll find what many consider the best spots: arround Ericeira and Peniche. Here you'll find many surfcamps, shops and everything you need for your surf...

Hey. I read what you wrote and I have a few questions. I am planning a trip to portugal for the first week of October. I am trying to find somewhere we can stay that will have good surf, good local culture, good food, pretty things to see, etc. Also, I would love to be somewhere with warm water and sunshine. I was thinking about the west coast of the algarve, but it looks like it may be a bit deserted and I am afraid that Ericeria or Lisbon will be too cold then. Could you give me some advice? I am beginner to intermmediate surfer and I am travelling with someone who has just just started. Thanks!

The Village of Baleal is the best place for a Surftrip in Portugal... you will find at least 5 different easy waves to learn Surfing within 5 min. (walking distance).
You can also visit the historical towns of Peniche and Obidos... there is really a lot to explore around here !
I own a Surf house right at the entrance of Baleal, so if you need more information, please feel free to contact.

We are two cool canuck couples coming down on october 8th to surf, camp and immerse ourselves in the beauty that is portugal. We appreciate any tips on must do's or must see's. We are all intermediate surfers looking for clean beaches, good food, friendly people and some nightlife. We would also love if anyone is into renting a couple of rooms for a night or two as we are mostly camping and would enjoy a warm soft bed here and there. Thanks for your reply;-)

Hi my personal favourite is the west algarve, lots to do nightlife etc in lagos. If you know the right beaches you can avoid lots of the tourists. We hire out classic t2 vw kombis that sleep 2 to 4. With a van you can try out all of the top spots and practically stay on the beach.
