    Driving down from Lisboa but mostly staying in Algarve. Have a place rented in Sarges with some friends from Europe. Should be fun but the water is unseasonably cold ) :

    You're really in off season as far as waves are concerned for that area but I bet zipolite could have a few fun ones albeit smaller. But who knows I've only been there in the summer. The water is super clear there...everybody surfs at the west end of the beach but good waves can come off the rock towards the east in front of neptune. I'm sure you've already read about the nudity there.....it's very real ...after a few days it just becomes whatever. If you like a kind of nobody gives a crap hippy vibe you will really like that town. Also it's dirt cheap (although the first part of your trip is highest of the high season). There is some really good food there and a beach front bar that has all kinds of wild mexcal flavors ...snakes, scorpions, ganj, etc. As far as renting a board, might be kind of tough to get anything good probably much better luck in Escondido an hour and change north. Have fun I love that place and it's on my list for retirement

    Headed to CR for 8 days - leave this Friday. Gonna be in Playa Grande with the wife and some friends. Nobody else surfs, but they'll keep my wife entertained while I'm gone most of the day. Swell looks like it's lining up to be chest to overhead while I'm there. Keeping my fingers crossed for bigger swell!

    Chest to head might be a bit bigger @Grande. Either way, Buena suerte y pura vida.

    Dang...Portugal well outlived the expectations. Scored some excellent surf completely alone and a few sessions with plenty of people out. The SW corner of the country really has tons of options for swell and wind. Definitely a winner.
