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.
