Surf Sagres Tonel
Sagres in summer is also knows as wind capital. It seems to be always windy. Where Lagos and the rest of the Algarve have a few more hours of quiet time in the morning. At Sagres you will need to be early and a bit lucky to avoid the wind. Today we have company of to super stoked guys (one lady and one guy to be exact.) And although it is not easy to wake up early on your holiday. The reward is worth it. With a good bit of swell it is the guide trick to find a spot protected enough. Today we hit Tonel before the wind wakes up and get a beautiful surf.
Sagres surfing in the wind or windsurfing
Ideally you don´t want any wind while you are surfing. The only wind you maybe like is a little bit of offshore. All the other wind is making the surf less good. Today we know the wind is going to pick up a lot and we really surf our brains out before that. Our hard-core surfguide guests stay in a little bit longer charging the wind. Obviously there are still waves with the wind. It just becomes a lot harder to stay in position and the water surface gets more choppy. But if you are here for a few weeks and surf only a few times a year: stay in as long as you want!
