 Portugal

Europe

Due to it's geographical position, Portugal is blessed with some seriously sweet swells throughout most of the year, You can drive up the coast along 600km+ of open beachbreake and concealed bays. The whole coast is teaming with unknown spots begging to be found. You don't even have to go very far from famous/crowded beaches to find yourself alone with possibly an even better wave than 20-40 people are fighting for five minutes down the road. All you need in portugal is a car and a little spirit and you'll be rewarded. The best swells come in late winter early spring.

My first trip together with Andre to the Algarve. Lots of wind, rain and swell, but also some nice days with clean waves and some sunshine. Temperatures were mild, (about 18° inside and outside the water.

HELP!!! )) - Hello, we are a group of friends, dreaming to become surfers)). We are trying to plan our trip to Portugal. The first week we want to finish in Lisbon. After that We d like to stay somewhere not far from Lisbon for learning to surf. It’ll be between 1 – 10 sept. 2012, for a weak.
Is there a possibility for some persons to reserve only apartments not to study surfing, but to keep the company and to have a good time on the beach together with us?
Please, advise us any surf school for beginners and give us their contacts, or may be even some information about the prices for apartments, board rent and services of the instructor.
