Surfing in the Algarve - Portugal with us!!!

www.extremealgarve.com


The Algarve has some of the best waves in Europe to offer. Year round swell, two coastlines, uncrowded beaches & points, as well as year round sunshine make the Algarve probably the best place in Europe to be especially in winter.

On this blog our aim is to tell you exactly what the surf is like each day (if it's awesome) but really updates every week. Nowhere in the world is the surf perfect every day, not even here unfortunately. BUT one thing I can tell you for a fact is last summer for one, there wasn't 1 day when the surf was too small to not at least surf with a longer board - for fun! Even this winter has been awesome. Surfing in the Algarve is still an experience where you can get a whole beach to yourself with perfect peaks. You look at poor old Morrocco with it's perfect point breaks. Some of the best waves around, and every man and his dog are on them - all the time.

Fortunately that hasn't happened here - yet. I know some people back in the UK that think Portugal is on the Mediterranean!!! Let em believe it for now.
Right so if you guys want to come surfing with me it's a little bit different. Otherwise you can choose from the hundreds of surf schools out there. If you want lessons you got it. If you want to improve, you got it, even if you want to be left alone to flounder in the shore break you got it!! We aren't a surf school where we get the masses in and out on specific times - regimented but we also don't just take you to the beach and spend the day reading trashy novels leaving you to find the only crowded 1 ft peak to share with a thousand spongers.
