Praia de Rocha surfing

Hi there,
My husband (keen surfer) and I and our little 3 year old are heading for Portugal in October (last 2 weeks).  We will be staying around Praia de Rocha and I was wondering if somenone coudl tell me about good spots in that area.  We will be hiring a car so we can travel from the resort but not too far as we'll have our daugther with us.

normally there is a north wind in the south of the algarve, praia da rocha is 30 Km from the westcaost where there are good surf beaches, but maybe you are lucky ,if there is a big suestada you can stay at praia da rocha, have a nice hollyday, Patrick
