how can i best combine surfing with sightseeing?

Hey all

I'll be travelling to portugal in mid-september; we have 7 days, of which i've decided to spend 4 in lisbon+some other town, sightseeing, and 3 surfing in a surf camp in Peniche.  However, i'm not sure whether surf camp is a good idea, since we'd also like to see as much of Portugal as possible while there.  
Sooo.. anybody knows of coastal towns/villages we might go to instead of the surf camp? that have good surfing spots and at the same time public transport connections etc? (we won't rent a car) Any suggestions at all from ppl who live/has been there?

Cheers

7 days isn't much.  To maximize time I would stick with Lisbon and the Lisbon coast.  There is Cascais, Sintra and Ericeira.  Sintra is absolutely beautiful.  Castles, gorgeous National Forest, very close to Lisbon and also close to surf.  And then go to Peniche.  while in Peniche make sure to check out the Berlengas, beautiful islands 11km away by boat.  Nazare, São Pedro de Muel and Figueira da Foz would be other cool coastal cities with surf.  They are father away but accessible by transit.  Enjoy!!!

You might also want to touch base with Karin who posts responses regularly on this site.  He might have good info for you on the Lisbon Coast.  Have a great trip!
