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.

yeah - this place gets really fun, some barreling wedges. but it IS kind of a last resort spot. check it when tonel is double overhead plus.

Beautiful spot! - This is the first place I ever surfed in Portugal. Everywhere else was totally out of control. It was a soft beachbreak wave with a heavier left breaking at the more exposed eastern end. Lots of Britons in the water. e stayed in the Posada on the cliff just to the east. The better waves are close by but this place always seemed to have something fun!
