Surfing in Portugal

Surfing Portugal
Within easy reach of all parts of Europe, Portugal is a popular surfing destination with locals as well as international visitors. While it attracts the water-sports community all-year round, the main season runs from late winter to early spring. Come at this time of year and you can expect waves measuring anything from 2 metres up to a sizeable 15 ft. Reaching temperatures of 26 degrees/ 79 Fahrenheit in the peak of summer, this is the busiest time for tourists descending on vacation. This is also a better time for novice surfers and groms, with gentler waves ranging from 1m up to 5ft.
