Surf guide session
We like to go surfing before the wind starts and if possible before the crowds arrive. There is a lot of coastline in the Algarve and it is often not impossible to find a uncrowded spot. But if you want to have the best waves you sometimes have to wake up early. Sunny blue skies and white sand? Not today. Todays surfguide session at Castelejo is super misty. Usually you can check the waves from the car park. Now we need to walk all the way to the water edge to check the wave conditions. There are a few advantages of thick mist. Usually people sleep in longer. They look outside- see mist- and stay inside. The mist also means there is no wind. No wind means fun surf! We get a super mystic surf with no one else around.
When the Sun is out
We find surprisingly fun waves (and a lot of seaweed.) After a good 2 hour surf session the wind starts to pick up while the sun is coming out. As we enter the carpark the place is absolutely full with surf schools and other surfers. we did it again. Stoked!
When the surf is done and the day is still young there is time for a lot of other things.
