This was a residential house that we converted into a surf house providing a relaxing and cheerful environment full of good vibes.

It is located between the beach (Matosinhos) and the centre of Porto (Rotunda da Boavista).

The house can accommodate 10 surfers in 3 double private rooms and 1 shared room up to 4 roomates, all sharing 3 bathrooms in the house and another one out at the backyard. Also at this backyard you will be able to enjoy your breakfast every morning or have some some meal to recharge your batteries in the evening. We will guide you and help you with anything you may need during your stay.

Location

The Surf House is located at 50 meters of the main avenue of Porto "Avenida da Boavista" where you can find transport to anywhere in the city very easily. Also this is the same avenue that will take you in just one direction to the sea. In the surroundings you have a big supermarket where you can buy all you need to maintain you alive during your stay, and some good restaurants like "Cufra" that is open all day until 2:00 am.
There is a laundry at 400 meters in case you feel like a coffee while you wash some clothes.

Titan right

Titan right

Level: All Levels

When the sea is over 2.0m high there is a great long right wave at the north extreme of Matosinhos beach near the peer. The wave is easy and very fun to surf, specially if you like a classic style.

Espinho - Direita

Espinho - Direita

Level: Intermediate

One of the best right waves of Portugal and so of the World. best with empty tide, this wave is good for intermediate surfers when the swell is up to 1.5m high. Bigger than this, it needs some skill and dedication but it will worth the effort.

The best time to surf Porto is between Spring through to Autumn. It's main surf beach is Matosinhos beach, the best surf spot in Porto for beginner and intermediates. Its a long 1km sandy beach with a few different points on it. The set up is a mix of beach break and reef break and parts of it are sheltered so it handles larger swell. Easy to get to and consistent.

Next to Matosinhos is International Beach. A lovely spot that begins where the city park ends. Its also a great learner spot, and a great place to hang out both during day and at night. Further north is Leca, a very consistent beach break protected by the harbour.

In and around the city there are small little beaches all worth exploring, particularly for the more advanced surfers wanting to discover the best Porto surf breaks.

There are more surf breaks further south including Barra do Porto and Miramar and then 20km south of Porto are the towns of Esphino and Esmoriz. Its arguably the North's most famous surf area and the beaches have a real nice surf culture. The area's 3 main beaches are Silvade, beach, Blue beach and Baia beach. A mix of sandy beach breaks and reef spots that suit beginner and advanced. Hang around and score some long barreling right & left handers all to yourself.
