The correct answer is in the north of Portugal in August you will need at least a 3/2 short john. It advisable to bring a long one. Please expect 15 ºC average tenperature.

I wore a 3/2 sealed even in the peak of summer but a short sleever can be ok. If you are always the one in the lineup who is wearing only boardshorts when everyone else is in a wetsuit you could get away with less.
Depending on the swell direction the water can be toe numbing, and that after getting your toes cooked walking across the sand in the peak of summer.
I'd still pack a 3/2 sealed, and then something with short sleeves if the water temperature is a bit on the warm side
