LISBON SURFING TIPS!!!?? PLEASE HELP!« on: August 27 2009 03:08:00 »
I hope you can help – I am going to Lisbon for my second time this September….my gf has a conference but I am going to surf. Unfortunately I do not have a hire car this time and I wanted to know how I might be able to get to
(i) Costa Caprica
From Lisbon. I also have an issue regarding what I take with me, I’m staying in a hotel in Lisbon but I do not know if there are any security lockers or anything on the beaches in Costa Caprica/Costlano (I surfed there last yr and it was very busy) otherwise I may be in my wetsuit and with my board on the bus and keeping everything in my keypouch?!
Any information regarding the above would be greatly appreciated! Many thanks.

You can catch the transports to Ericeira, by train and bus, see at www.cp.pt, or to reach more faster you can catch the bus in Campo Grande, www.mafrense.pt
About lockers, there aren't any, the best is to ask if you can leave your stuff in a restaurant, bar, or in a surf shop whyle you're on the water.

About Ericeira, you have regular busses to Ericeira from Lisbon, almost every hour or second hour, it is not dangerous to bring your equipment and staff to ericeira and leave it in Ericeira.
I have got a Guest House in Ericeira in front of Matadouro - surf spot, very close to Pedra Branca/empa and close to Ribeira Dìlhas, if you want to come to Ericeira, you can stay here or even leave your staff here from one day to another.

Thanks and see you.

I would advise costa da caparica, carcavelos and Peniche.. Because in sept sometimes there is no waves, and costa da caparica is the most consistant spot in Lisbon.Peniche is guaraunteed to have a surfable wave somewhere on their "island", and I recommend Carcavelos because its the easiest to get to from Lisbon (local train from cais do sodré, 20 mins).
Peniche is more expensive to reach but equally as easy, check http://www.rede-expressos.pt for time tables, its about 7-8 euros.
You can find beach cams online, and all local information about surfing in Lisbon can be found on www.biglisboa.com
I leave my stuff on the beach, just make sure your stuff in your board bag and in a place that youll still be able to keep an eye on it from the line up.
Hope you enjoy Lisbon and the surf!
