How did you like the accommodation?


The accommodation was excellent. It is in a nice hostel, well-located near the center of the pretty town of Ericeira. I had a multi-bed room to myself. The included breakfast was great and the facilities for cooking were good too. There is some nice indoor seating and even a fusball table. There is also a nice, open patio/deck overlooking the town from which the ocean is visible. There was a nice volunteer staff and she organized a really fun midsummer celebration for all the guests. Generally, some of the guests were interested in mingling, although it wasn't the most social atmosphere either. It is a little far from the surf spots, but as an accommodation in itself it is very nice.

How did you like the surf lessons?


Surf experience was a little disappointing to me - I was looking to progress to green waves after already become comfortable with the basics on surfing whitewater previously. Partly, when I went in June, there was a strong unfavourable onshore winds (unlike later in Augst and after) - this made paddling to the lineup at the beach break we went to (Sao Juliao) even more challenging. Swells also got too big for less experienced surfers which meant surfing generally whitewater rather than greenwaves. Instructor was a nice guy, but ratio of students to instructor was higher compared to places in say Central America (2:1). I would also say instructor was a surfer first and teacher second. Photos/video were taken one day, during the week, but in my case, at least one or two were lost.

In summary, Ericeira is probably best appreciated by solid intermediates+, comfortable with beach breaks, and that surf in the fall or later. Beginners can try whitewater surfing, but progressing to green waves isn't that easy without a very accessible lineup.
