Ericeira or Peniche?

« on: May 12 2010 10:05:00 »

Looking to spend the month of August somewhere to surf. Which spot would have better waves for an intermediate surfer that time of year?
Also, which area would have quality board and wetsuit hire and affordable accommodations?
Thanks, any info would be appreciated!

They're both great places during summer time.
You might want to check Surf'inn Surfcamps They have the best camps in Portugal, including Peniche and Ericeira. Talk to them and they'll let you know the best one according to your travel requests.

Penhiche and Ericeira???Peniche (the best waves are lefts "Supertubes" "Lagide" and in Ericeira the best waves are rights (Coxos and Ribeira D'ilhas).Both pick up the same swell and have great spots too surf and lots of places to stay, but I recommend you to book something in advance because August is the peak of the summer and the best places are always full.Portugal is so small that if you have a car you should visit both places.
You will find some surfshops and surfschools to rent material in Ericeira and Peniche, but I recomend you this site where you can book your material in advance so you will know that you will have the right surfboard available and waiting for you.
