    • PORTUGAL: SURFING IN MAY

      Portugal Apr 5, 2014 at 8:52 AM

      Hello everybody. I'm going to try surfing for the first time. Me and my friend has chosen Portugal as a place to go. We've bought tickets on a plane from 1 to 13 of may. But it looks like may is not a good season for surfing. So, I have a question, could you please recommend where can we go to have a good experience in surfing at that time? We think about the Peniche, but maybe Algarve or Ericeira or something else would be a better place to surf at this time. Or maybe something else. Could you please advise. Also, we have a problem with choosing the surf school. There are so many schools and only a few reviews about them. So it's very difficult to choose a good one. :(
      Thank you!
