Hey Larry. Im coming from the US on March 26th and was thinking of starting a surf trip in Lisbon. It looks as though anywhere you'd stay would be a hike to the waves though. Im doing some research on the Northern coast. What are your thoughts?

Yes, you are right... after the rainy season the swell pics up and also comes some good off shore wind. I will advice you about Alentejo, there is a special wave right in April ! True!
write me an email and I will show yo some links.

Lisbon bears the mark of an incredible heritage with laid-back pride. The city also presents an intriguing variety of faces to those who negotiate its switchback streets. In the oldest neighbourhoods, stepped alleys are lined with pastel-colour houses and crossed by laundry hung out to dry; here and there miradouros (vantage points) afford spectacular river or city views. In the centre, black-and-white mosaic cobblestone sidewalks border wide boulevards, and blue-and-white azulejos (painted and glazed ceramic tiles) adorn churches, restaurants, and fountains.
