The surguide Search,

With an absolute monster swell hitting Portugal and the whole of Europe for that matter, it is time to find some more shelter. The problem is that everyone in the whole region needs to do that. Imagine you close all the restaurants in town, but two. They will be very busy. Well that is exactly what happens in the Algarve on days like this. (In corona time when this is the only spot people can go on their Surftrip.)

Find your own peak!

If you arrive on a beach- any beach- and you see a bunch of surfers sitting on one spot. What do you think? The answer is probably: ´Thats probably where the waves are best, I´ll go there´. But the answer should be: ´Thats probably where the waves were best when the first guy (or girl!) arrived, but now there´s a bunch of people on it. Maybe I can look further, don´t be a sheep, and find my own peak. Don´t be a sheep! You have probably traveled thousends of kilometers to get here. It is not so much work to walk a little bit further. Especially when this is waiting for you:
