THE SURF AT THE ALGARVE

Surfing is the mother of all board sports! Although it has been practised for hundreds of years, it has not lost a bit of its fascination. Nowhere else, the power and beauty of the ocean can be experienced as intense as while surfing.
Portugal, and especially the Algarve, offers outstanding circumstances to learn surfing.

A wide range of beaches and bays sheltered from the wind, the warm climate and, last but not least, a consistent Atlantic swell make it to a perfect all-year surfing destination. Whereas the summer is great for beginners due to the less powerful waves, the winter is the best time for advanced or professionals as the ocean delivers strong winter swells which result in wave faces regularly higher than 2 meters. However, beginners can always find good surf spots for practising at the south coast.

SURF GUIDING AT THE ALGARVE

You can already surf and don’t need an instructor, but don’t have the local knowledge to find the best spot for your level?

The southwest coast of Portugal has loads of hidden gems. There is barely a day without a good wave, as the Algarve catches north, south and west swell for reef, beach and rivermouth breaks.

You only need to know when and where to go :) !

Tides and winds are playing a significant role in choosing the right spot, whereas they can be working differently even on two neighboring beaches. Also, some beaches are really hard to reach, which all makes it difficult to be at the right spot during the right time.
