so i'm planning to visit portugal in april. but what would be the best place to go then when you consider surfing? i was thinking about figueira da foz, but what's it like there then?
is it popular among locals to surf or are there just foreigners?

I lived in/near figueira for 4 years. It's a cool place and there's a good hostel in town too. Variety of breaks nearby some of which can get very good (it used to be a WCT contest venue. There's a decent sized crew of locals (both stand-up and bodyboarders) and people come from elsewhere in Portugal to surf there. I only ever saw a handful of travellers surf there, not sure why. Email me if you need any more info and possible hook-ups. Toby.

The best place is Ericeira, the surf capital in Portugal.
