7 Days Surf Camp in Portugal

  • Carrapateira, Algarve, Portugal

Portugal Surf Camp

You heard that Portugal is good for surfing? You heard right! But Portugal has many different places to go. It has more than 800 kilometers of coastline, so deciding where to go surfing in Portugal can be difficult. What you should be looking for is a place with guaranteed surfing the time of the year you can go. This is what surfer call surf consistency. Some places in Portugal are world-class in October, but can be flat or with no waves many days in the summers, so if you choose to go there in summer months chances are you are getting some days without waves.

The west Algarve coastline that goes between Aljezur and Sagres is blessed with very consistent surf, or in other words, surf is possible almost every day of the year even in August, when the rest of Portugal and the northern coast of Spain is flat as a pancake many days. On top of that the white or broken waves are very powerful, and give ideal conditions for beginners who try surfing for the first time.
