Correct spot name - I am a local, and the spot name is : "Santo Amaro" Good surf for all.

By anonymous local , 28-01-2007

one of the best waves in portugal - It´s sad, but the portuguese government has no surf culture, and all the sea shore projects miss the surf potential of our shore... Santo amaro is another victim of this fact. But with the help of the surfers comunity, a pacific deal was made with the Oeiras mayor, and the original project for this place has been changed,leaving the wave a bit modified from before! it´s only a beggining.. but it gives us hope for future situations. I consider this a small victory for the portuguese surfers. Its a powerfull right handed wave, similar to "coxos"(ericeira) but normaly more bumpy. It needs special conditions to break perfect and if you wait for the right tide you might get an epic surf seesion, or waist an entire day waiting for it and nothing happens... When it´s perfect, can blow 3m high perfect waves with pipe sections.. get a bigger board for this days.. you will need it!! Like everywhere, respect the locals and you will be respected. Enjoy it!!

Excellent! - Not the cleanest water, tastes like shit BUT...the rides are long, powerful wave. Beside Coxos and Luz its in my top three favorite waves of Portugal! NOT for beginners!
