Surfing in Portugal is possible all year round. The winter time is less sunny but waves are more abundant, though you also have some of those classic sunny days and temperatures are never that cold when compared to other countries in Europe. In Portugal the maximum you will need to surf will be 4.3 mm wetsuit. During summer, sometimes you can get lower swells but conditions change every 3 or 4 days. It is not uncommon to have also high swells especially towards the end of the summer season when Portugal hosts several surf contests, including the major World Tour in Peniche with the best surfers in the world. The surf school is quite busy starting from April / May, so booking in advance is highly recommended.
Our experienced and certified instructors are local surfers who know where to find the best conditions each day and will be taking you directly there, so you don't lose time looking for it. There are several types of beach breaks to suit all tastes, from point break to beach breaks all around just a few minutes distance.
