My first trip together with Andre to the Algarve. Lots of wind, rain and swell, but also some nice days with clean waves and some sunshine. Temperatures were mild, (about 18° inside and outside the water.

there was - went here in the summer it got swell for two days betwenn 23jul and 5 aug 3foot shorey heaving better for bodysurfing. unless you want to snap your board.

Luz rocks - Its all true, Luz is fickle and flat in the summer (apart from the odd levant swell - which is good for skimming) but the winter SW swells rock this beach and reefs - FYI the only guy who gets shacked at the right reef is Xana, 6 sec barrels, in your dreams! this is not Indo. James is a good lad, keep it up.

help - going here in july so is it worth taking a board down to the beach or is it a load of shit. is the west coast better and more consistent at that time of year
