Hi folks, looking to spend a week surfing in December in Algarve area. I'm beginner/intermediate level i guess but need practice not lessons. Where's the best places to surf for my level and what thickness wetsuit? Cheers

A 3/2 or 4/3 if easy to get cold.
I would go Luz, nice wave for learning.
If too small, you go on the Atlantic.
