Hi Paul, I would say the lIsbon coast is the best as its the most consistant and more options within 20min drive! Let me know if you need more help, see you soon, Karin

to be honest. i love all three of those places. whichever you pick you will have a great time. in september you shouldn't have a hard time finding waves. depends on what else you want to see and do while you are in Portugal. the 2 coast thing in Sagres is true, but peniche has beaches that face different directions as well. baleal is a great long beach in peniche where one end of the beach can be super agressive and the other really calm.
if all you want is to learn to surf i would say peniche or sagres. If you want some sightseeing as well, stick with the lisbon coast.

If you are a beginner the best surfing spot will definitely be the Lisbon Coast...try Costa da Caparica (Praia do Castelo) and Carcavelos...the swell is not huge, so in September you'll be able to have fun learning and catching some waves there.
There are a lot of surf schools around these area...try to google it..

Lisbon coast - lots of different places to head too - we are in figueira da foz to the north (between porto and lisbon), google the hostels and you'll find the paintshop - happy to help with any questions if you end up passing through here for a couple of days.
