Algarve & Lisbon in July

« on: June 28 2007 13:06:00 »

Hey all,

I've got a short surfing holiday planned for the 4th to 10th of July - I'm flying into Faro and out of Lisbon. I would say I'm a beginner/intermediate surfer and I'm going for the surf, not necessarily the partying.

These are the only arrangements I've made so far - can anyone help me with:

- Best (beginner!) breaks
- Places to stay (cheap!)
- Board hire
- Whether to pack a wetsuit

Thanks for your help guys,

Hey Ben,
Head to Sagres - it's definitely the best place to stay if surfing's at the top of your agenda. You've got Tonel and Marreta right there in town, and if they're flat you're only a short drive from the west coast breaks like Amado, Arrifana etc. where you can hire boards. You'll need a 3/2 to be comfortable. The place I used to stay in Sagres has closed down so I can't help you on that one I'm afraid. At that time of year I'd stay down there and just give yourself a couple of days at the end to check out Lisbon, but keep an eye on the surf forecast at and the rest. Drop me a line if you need any more info, and have a good trip!

In Lisbon you have very pretty and very good beaches for surfing, that I believe that he is worth while knowing, between her you have Guincho in Cascais, and Praia Grande and Praia das Maçãs in Sintra. Here also I recommend to you a wetsuit 3.2. The city of SIntra is beautiful considered Historical Patrimony of the Humanity. I can give you more information about cheap places to sleep, and where to rent material, any thing send to me a mail.
Take care

Did you make it to Portugal to surf? How were the waves?
I'm tempted to find some waves next week. Don't know much about the land and sea there though.

How much would I pay for a 3/2 in Portugal? Easy to find?
