How were the surf lessons?
Surf lessons were great, excellent teacher! We are beginners so needed a lot of help but Rui was fantastic and lots of fun. My husband managed to catch a big wave on his second day with the great instructor!
The beach we went to was in a pine forest, it was so clean and fragrant and we could surf without a care in the world.
Level: All Levels
The beach where are the facilities of the Surfaventura School is located is Matosinhos Beach. It is usually on this beach that we give Surf lessons. This beach is a wide bay with sandy bottom, with waves suitable for beginners, intermediate and in some points and in some conditions, for advanced students. On request we also organize trips to other nearby beaches where there are sometimes excellent conditions for intermediate and advanced surfers.
Surf conditions in Porto:
Air Temp (°C)
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.
