One of the few lefthander in Ericeira, when Pedra Branca starts working we are talking about one of the best waves in Portugal.
The locals are ok, the atmosphere is based on respect.

Ereceira for Intermediates? - Okay so where in Ereceira would be good for an intermediate, and if nowhere, then where else should I try? Any good cheap places to stay?

Diogo - Its a fast take off. You need to learn how to surf it. Dont go there if your level is not high. If you can surf it its an amazing drop, with the bubbles of air coming out the reef. its a higher category of surfing. I failed 3 times till i made the first drop, doing some visits to the reef.
