just to get things straight - The photo with the fishing boat in the back of the line up is Praia do Norte in Ericeira...for those who doubt it...please I am not a fool.. stayed in Ericeira for a couple of months...I know where I took the photo...That other one looks more like Nazaré indeed...someone needs a lesson in geography!Have fun searching and ripping anywhere on the globe

Living on a shoestring in Prai do norte in a surfcamp called rapture - Great Spot , for no crowds and long rights , i surfed it this week at a surf camp that was overlooking this break not many guys surf this spot only some local guys who own a resturant which overlooks the spot aswell , we ate there regularly , worth a look , we woke up looked out the camp window no one out and surfed it like 2 times a day , surfing in portugal is great , best time for no crowds is now june , the water is warm , its cheaper than peak season , good waves , look into surfcamps in portugal , we stayed at one we found on google rapture , its run by a aussie guy who shoots pics for the surf mags there in portugal , www.rapturecamps.com no complaints good waves great parties nice people and cheap will be back again , thanks guys
