Helder Ferreira - Man he's not even a local....he's from carcavelos!!!

Helder Ferreira - Helder Ferreira, is one of the best surfers of Praia Grande and a hard local. He rips on big days with strong conditions. The photos are excellent. He should get a sponsor to help him to improve his technique and to be good competitor. Congratulations!

If everywhere else is flat get your ass here. - If you are an intermediate surfer and quite fit don't miss this break. It gets quite crowded but the Portugese don't get up before 9am, so if you get in early it'll be great. Don't surf the shore break, this is for short boarders but get out and surf out back. This is quite a rip taking you off the line up and its quite a paddle but well worth it. It's a beautifully powerful wave. The south end of the beach is less crowded for some reason. Miss this break if you are a beginner it will only depress you. If there everywhere else is flat get your ass here.

very good spot - this beach has a powerful, fast wave that is perfect for shortboarders, longboarders, and bodyboarders!

- Went to praye grande 2 summers ago. It was in the beginning of July. Nobody was on the beach the rental and surf school were a fucking rip off. Absolutly not for beginning surfers. No good accomodation to hire a board.There is one campsite not far from the beach Theres one surfbar next to that one surfshop who is also a surf school who isn't good organised.

Praia "really" Grande - An excelent spot for surfing. When swell enters it creats really powerful and heavy waves. All precautions must be taken! ;)
