Surfing Holiday Portugal« on: August 18 2007 13:08:00 »
Basically, next year my friends and i are planning to go to Portugal to have a good time and do some surfing during the day (baring in mind we have never surfed before), firstly im interested to know if anyone is aware of any good places to stay, surf (for beginers) and also whether we would need any lessons atall or is it possible to just work out alone?
One final question, roughly how much is equipment hire weekly and the like?

Hey man, I would get lessons. Alot of the local surf shops have schools, and all the gear is provided for you. I would stay in Lagos it's about 30mins from the main surf spots, has a wicked night life and plenty of hostels to stay in. Pre-booking is a must, my mate didn't and had to sleep in the car. Hire a car, it's essential if not staying on surf beach. Later

I think Andy is right... if you are totally beginners, the best option is to have some lessons first (ideally one week or more)... there are lots of Surf schools in Portugal that provide a full package (accomodation & surf course)....
The best place in Portugal to learn to Surf is definetely Baleal.... you will find at least 5 decent and easy surf spots in a walking distance... If you need more info about Baleal beach just ask.... I live over here and know pretty well the area.
