Best tide movementRising and falling tides
just watch out for rocks as they can sometimes submerge depending on the tide and the tide movement...especially when paddling in or out
Can be a good alternative if the swell is nice and all the famous spots are ultra-crowded...just respect those who are out!
it's a cool place to just surf and chill when you already had and epic session somewhere else...and you had enough of the insane crowds

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
