Surfing in Portugal September 2011

Hey.  I just got my ticket to Portugal... flying in the 28th of August and I'll be staying for 2.5-3 weeks.  I'm probably just gonna stay in hostels and meet people along the way, but would really prefer to get a camper van if I can find someone cool to split the bills with.

I'm a solid high intermediate (comfortable up to overhead waves, a little sketched out in DOH) looking for good waves wherever they may be... but also interested in historical/natural history and being a bit of a tourist.

So if anyone (cool) is gonna be in Portugal this September, it would be great to have a surf buddy.

Also, if anyone has any tips, let me know!

I'm gonna be in portugal since september the 6 until the 14.I arrive in lisbon airport and i've rent a little car. I arrive in the morning, so i would take the direction of baleal in hope to have nice surf for a week. perhaps it will be able to surf some days together or find best waves due to car... I don't know where to sleep, i will see this in place!
i'm from toulouse, south france.
I've just take my tickets for portugal yesterday fly and rent of car. I will probably buy a tend and sleep where i could...or find good opportunities in place... just simple.
enjoying nice time and surfing for pleasure since a lot of years... i'm 38 years old.

hi, i'll be @portugal too. i'll be in ericeira.
little question: is it allowed to sleep in a tent in portugal? like on a beach or in a forest?
cuz i don't want to spend tons of money on a place to sleep...

Hey just booked a flight too :)
Fly in on the 9th an out the 16th. Been to baleal, peniche already. Hopefully up to the challenge of surfing lagida this time.Only around for a week but plan to make the most of it. Was a popular spot with campervans as free to park by the beach and showers outside too.  From chatting with a few travellers who'd been other spots locally it was rated highly, it would be cool to meet up with someone and explore some more. History fan too so all good an company to find a bit of nitelife, even better,

Hi there,

I'm looking at flying into Lisbon on 11th... 16th Sept. I'm an intermediate surfer (and new to Portugal), keen to get some waves and enjoy the culture. It would be wicked to have a surfing buddy plus I'm keen to get some tips on where the best beach breaks are!

Looking for surf spots in Portugal ?
