Surfing at Praia Grande« on: May 31 2009 13:05:00 »
Hi everybody. I´m going to spend the whole summer at Praia Grande. I´d like to know if there is good surf for beginners and if there is some rentals or bazars of surfboards. I come from Czech republic and I´ll be an au-pair there. Hope I´ll find some friends to surf with, for parties and having fun....
And the second thing - is there any possibility for skate-longboarding? Thanks a lot. Hope we´ll see at the beach.

Praia Grande is beautiful place, but probably not for beginners, this is the beach for advanced people and a currents usually are strong.
Nice place where to learn surf and travel by skate-longboard is Peniche, you can go from Peniche to Baleal (3km) by skate-longboard.
And if you are staying all summer long, Peniche Kite and Surf center will definatelly find the good price for you.
And here is great night life, beach parties, a lot of surfers from all over the world.
And most important in Peniche you have more then 20 spots near here, they are suitable as for beginers as advanced surfers. You can start in one surf spot and developing your skills go to another surf spot.
