Best spot for waves in May?


I'm going to be in Europe for the whole of May and was planning a surf trip for a couple of weeks with my girlfriend.  Coming from Australia, I've never surfed in Europe before and was thinking Morocco, or Spain/Portugal.  I've always wanted to surf Morocco (especially the Taghazhout area and Safi) but have been reading a lot that May is no good for waves.  

Would anywhere else be more likely to have good waves?  If so, where?

Morocco's swell season is between October and April.
So I'll say that the best place to be in May is Portugal. There are lots of surfspots along the coast. Try wannasurf or local knoledge at Surf'inn (
