General Seasonal Wind Conditions - I have a question about the general wind conditions- My girlfriend who is originally from Lisbon and I are planning to come to portugal next fall. I was originally thinking October, but late November might work out better for her to see her family. I know it gets bigger from fall and into the winter. I've been surfing for 20 years & I'm not afraid of surf in the 10-15 foot & maybe a little larger range, but I'm concerned about the wind conditions... for example is October generally cleaner than November? or does the wind vary similarly? cold water is not an issue either as I live in New Jersey and surf straight through the winter. Long story short is it better yto come in Oct or late Nov? much respect and obrigado muito!

Great souvenir - Hi,I went surfing here in summer 2001, it was so insane that i still feel the wave in my mind after all these years.Surely the best spot for bodyboarders i've had to surf.Thanks to locals : event if you hear 'puta madre' or other things don't worry, they're friendly.Obrigado Ericeira
