What do snowy mountains and windsurfing have in common? More than you might think! Freestyle windsurfer Levi Siver has pushed the boundaries of the sport, taking his finned board up on the snow-covered mountains on the Rishiri Island in Japan and surfing his way down. Through his heroic feat, he became the first person to ever try alpine windsurfing.
Portugal is a surfer’s paradise. Its huge coastline is dotted with waves of all shapes and sizes, rolling in one after the other, some located just outside lively beach towns with buzzing nightlife, others remote and serene. Simply put, Portugal has something for everyone.
Some of the best waves in Europe are found on the Iberian Peninsula, and Spain’s long sun-kissed coastline is the perfect destination for a surf trip. Any time of the year.
