Where are some good beach breaks in or near Ericeira?« on: May 15 2008 09:05:00 »
I am coming to Ericeira between the 21st of May and 3rd of June, I have surfed already for 3 years, but not active in the last year. One of my mates is a beginner and needs a good spot to learn, so I was wondering whether anyone had any tips on any nice sand or beach breaks in town, which is walkable, and has powerful waves.

you might have to do some hitchhiking my friend. None of the spots in town are very good or consistent. South you have Foz do Lizhandro and north Ribeira d'Ilhas - the latter is a high quality beach/point whereas the former is better for your friend. It's a 5-10 minute drive to both spots so you can walk but it'll take you over half an hour. Hope that helps. Toby.

cheers, hehe we dont mind walking :P another question:
when the waves are small (<5 feet) where are the waves better or more consistent? in peniche or ericeira? or is coxos any good when the waves are small or medium sized?

Coxos needs a decent sized swell to start breaking as far as I know. Say
around 6ft. Peniche is probably more consistent because you have more options when the wind is coming out of a westerley quadrant. All the reefs around Ericeira need light winds/offshores to get good.
