Surfing in the Algarve
What makes surfing in the Algarve different from surf in other parts of the globe? Every place has it´s unique characters, secrets and moods. Some places only work on low tide, others will be dry and close out at that exact moment. Insight info is always key to score good waves, wherever you are. But here in the south west tip of Portugal it is a full on studies.
It´s not flat
Often there are messages from future guests wondering why they are looking at a flat ocean while we are posting perfect head high waves on the same day. There is a simple explanation for this. There are a lot of surf related houses, hostels, shops etc located in Lagos. Where the surf usually is very much non existent in Lagos. (There is times there are waves!) But not like most expect that you walk out the city center with a board under your arm to the nearest beach with surf. often guests that do discover the true potential of this region come back for more. And some even multiple times per year. Yesterday was like a dream. We surfing empty barrels with our first ever surfguide guests. Where? Somehwere in the Algarve…
At the right time at the right spot. The Surfguide Algarve slogan. Since about four years already! Today this slogan is more true than ever before. Where people are complaining the line ups are too full and the region getting too spoiled with tourist we surf our brains out.
