Week crowdFew surfers
- Rips / undertow
- Man-made danger (buoys etc..)
type of waves depends on wind, swell, tide. varies from beachbreak closeouts to pointlike peelers. just have to pay attention to the conditions. at high tide, use rip along inside left side along rocks to get out fast. accesses a nice peeling right with inside barreling reforms.
On good days is crowded specially if it's a weekend day, a decent option when thereºs swell because of itºs proximity to the city (10 min. from center). heavy pollution. outlet pipes right on the beach = highly sketchy health risks. floaties...yuck
only surf it if you have to, or when the conditions are good enough to outweigh the pollution problem.

Surf store in Porto - Guys,
In two weeks, im going to porto to surf there.
I ve never been there before, so it would be my first time surfing in porto.
I actually come from Indonesia and now studying in Holland, so i did not bring all of my surfing gears to Holland. Since there is no wave in Holland.
I wonder if there is a surf store which rent a surfing board. Otherwise i can only watch people surfing over there.
Thanks guyss..i hope you give me a nice info.
