Surf school Portugal Seasons

Surf Seasons


Our surf school Portugal starts in the springtime when there is plenty of sun with warm days, flip-flops and shorts. The small picturesque villages by the coastline get lively, the water temperatures start rising and the waves get progressively smaller.


The weather is great and the waves are fun. There are many concerts and festivals everywhere with great nightlife. Summer time is a great season to visit Portugal with perfect conditions for beginner surf lessons, since the waves are softer and smaller.


It is time for great surf and good weather. The water is still warm and the best surfers in the world come to Peniche in October, which means a huge spectacle for the fans with deep barrels and airs.


The surf school is closed during wintertime.
