Surfboard Rental & Waves Late June

Hi

I will br in Portugal for 9 days in Late June. I flying into Lisbon & heading down South & back up again. I was thinking about taking my surfboard but lots of costs on airlines plus extra hassle. Wondering if it is worth renting a board? Is it easy to rent a board on the Altenjo region? Maybe rent a board in Lisbon & drive down?

Thanks

Really the air companies are charging very much for the transport of the board. Here it is very simple to rent a board, both in the Alentejo and in Lisbon you have schools and shops that they rent. If you want more information, contact, that it will help you with great pleasure

Dear Marcela,
Maybe you could help me too. I've heading out to Lisbon for a few days in June with some friends. There are a couple of good surfers in the group and a couple who, dare I say it, want to do some boogie boarding. We're staying in Lisbon, and will travel out to the coast on the train. Which area/beach would you recommend and where can we hire surfboards and boogie boards?
look forward to hearing from you.
Alastair

In this epoch the beaches of Gincho, Praia Grande or Praia Das Maçãs it has good conditions, but you will have to combine the train with a bus or taxi. The contacts wherefrom renting stage I spend them to you for mail. Any other information do not doubt in contacarme

Hey Alastair,

Don't forget Costa da Caparica on the south side of the river. And look out for a dvd called "Comportamentos do Risco" - it's 100% Portuguese bodyboarding and may change your opinions. In Portugal the two sports are (quite rightly) seen by the general public as equal.
Hope you get good waves.

If you have time come over to the north of Portugal. Close to Porto there are duzend of uncrowded surf spots. Great waves for surfers and for Bodyboards. Worth come and visit.

Hi Rui..I have to ask you...you are still writing, that near Porto there are duzens of good spots...which ones do you think exactly? I am now in Porto and my friends will come to spend one surfing week here. Well, I stood twice on a board( but I want to learn,of course:-) ) and my friend know, how to surf. Could you recommend some? We also need to rent surf somewhere and also neopren. Maybe if you know some shops, where we could make bussiness for one week?:-) Whatever you write me, it will help me... Thx, Koca

Hi.
Welcome to Porto.
You have to go to the south coast od Douro´s river, where u have more options to choose from. If you are driving go to Espinho beach., close to a CASINO. It is one of my favourite waves. Then just drive south close to the pears. There are like 6 in a row. If you are getting the train get out in Espinho train station.
This week it been pretty stormy bt is getting better for tomorrow.

Hope i wrote this on time....

Cheers

Rui

Hey Rui,

Are you a bodyboarder? If so, next time you go to Espinho say hi to Jo, Tiago Ramirez and Faustino from me!

Boas ondas,

Toby.
