Location

This is our most recent house opening its doors just at the end of 2019 after a couple years on another location. We are located in the main avenue of Porto to Avenida da Boavista just 2 km from the beach in a straight line down the avenue to Note that you have a cycle way in the middle of the avenue where you can ride a skate from the house to the beach easily in around 4 to 5 minutes.
This is a very calm and prestigious residential area where you can feel relaxed and hear some bird in our fruit trees and also so close to the action of the city if you need some of that too.

How did you like the accommodation?

     

Porto Surf House was the best place i stayed during my trip around Portugal. I stayed in some other confortable places but Daniel´s reception was something else. This guy can put a smile on anyone´s face. He and his team were such a nice company those days i spent at the Surfhouse. They were very busy setting up the new Surfhouse Circle Surfcamp that will start this year, for sure i will be back soon to check it out

How did you like the accommodation?

     

Daniel´s Surfhouse is such a nice place to be free of mind. We came just on a quick trip but is was so great we will come back for sure next year. We reccommend Porto Surf House to anyone who wants to try some surf for the first time as we did or if you already are an intermediate.


How were the surf lessons?

     

We had 4 Surf lessons with Daniel and also with one of his instructors Elisio. They were so patient with such a beginners we were. We had lots of attention and they gave us a lots of photos of our first waves (Take offs:))
Great guys around there.

The house is amazing, beautiful and very very clean! The location it's also great, really near to the beach (2km) and also to a big beautiful park, and just 1 minute away you can take the bus to go to the city center. The host, Daniel, is really really nice and he helped us a lot with everything we needed. We had an amazing time here. Thanks Daniel!

Porto has great Surf spots whether you are a beginner or a pro. You will be able to choose between "Matosinhos" when the sea is big, "Leça" when the sea is smaller or Espinho if you want to carve perfect tubular world class waves. There are also many secret spots that we might reveal to you when you arrive...

Main Surf Beach: "Praia Matosinhos"; "Praia de Cortegaça"; Praia da Azurara"

Surf Lessons we offer:

Beginner Surf Lessons

Our 2h Surf lessons are held at the beach where the instructors feel that has the best conditions in each day. The spots may include the nearest beach "Matosinhos" where beginner surfers will love the long foam waves before they feel ready to hit green walls, "Azurara" at north of Porto, Espinho and Maceda at the south of the city, or even some other great secret spots that we can´t reveal here...

Intermediate Surf Lessons

For the intermediate surfers we will mostly analyze the level and the specific need for improvement and evolution. Instructors will prepare you before you enter the sea and will also surf together with you to set examples and give you important water positioning tips to catch the waves that you want. Also between Matosinhos, Maceda, Espinho and Azurara you will be stoked with Porto Surf.

Advanced Surf Lessons

If you are already catching some greens and want to improve your cutback, your stance on the board or just need some boost to drop that green wall that you still didn´t have the courage before, this will be for you.. Let´s find the best peek of the day and jump forward in your surf skills.

Private Surf Lessons

Either if you are a beginner, intermediate or an advanced surfer, if you want a coach with all the attention just for you book our private lessons. Let´s choose the best spot for your level.


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.
