Surf is a new sport in Madeira. That’s why there are still not many local surfers.
Most of the surf breaks were discovered recently and most of the places remain secret.
The most popular spots are located in the southwest coast, like Jardim do Mar and Paul do Mar, where you can find the most challenging surf breaks of the island.
The north coast is a bit a bit more consistent due to its exposure to North Atalntic swells and sandy bottoms prevail.
Surf here can be powerful and dangerous especially from October through March with November to February considered as the prime months.
Basically Madeira island offers you a wide range of choices in just a few minutes driving, from beginner‘s very long waves in NE-SW windswells to extreme surfing conditions with perfect hollow waves over the reef.
This is definitely a destination for surfers searching for new boundaries with “adventure” and “discovery” on their minds.
