The best advice I can give you for surfing in that area at that time of year is - wake up early!! 2 reasons - it will be much less crowded, maybe empty, and it will be less windy. In that part of Portugal August is really windy almost every day, and everyone's on holiday. Email me and I can tell you about a couple of secret spots and maybe put you in contact with some local guys.
Take it easy.

RE: Surf in

you have a couple of surf shops in figueira, the cheapest option would be to buy a second hand one from the surf school, expect about 60/70 euros, try the paintshop hostel aswell.

Bad luck! Check out Pe do Pato in Cantanhede as well - might be cheaper than Ze in Figueira. Good tip from ben about surf school as well.
