Was in Portugal for a short Holiday and figured i'd get a good surf while I was there... Went down to Gale beach which was a short walk from our appartment and tried to see if there was somewhere to rent a surf board.. (even a foamy would have done) but no.. in the full stretch of beach, Which is I dont know how many miles long there was no where to rent. There was a surfer worked at the pedalo rental thing and after asking him where I could rent a surf board apparently the nearest place was the west coast. So in desperation I went to a local sports shop and bought a body board just so I could catch some sort of wave.
Headed straight to the beach and caught some good waves.. both left and right handers.. not quite the same as surfing but better than nothing. Waves got a bit dumpy at high tide due to the steep shore line. Hopefully will be able to head to the west coast next time im in Portugal. either that or fork out to bring my boards with me.
