Guincho beach

Guincho beach

Level: All Levels

Guincho beach is a beachbreak, meaning it is a sandy beach which is much more confortable then rocks if you are experiencing surf for the first times. Every surfers can enjoy no matter what their level

Adraga beach

Adraga beach

Level: All Levels

Adraga is one of the most beautiful beachs of portugal located in Sintra so you have a mix between montain and beach. It is probably one of the less crowded beach around for surf which is great. With moby dick surfscchool you will go there when the conditions are the best and probably love the beach making it hard to take you out of there

Praia de São Pedro

Praia de São Pedro

Level: All Levels

this is our hometown and has some of longest waves of our coast. Is is a mix between sand and rocks and it is a easy wave which allows every one to surf and is a very good spot to improve your surfing. São pedro is a town 5 min from cascais where the waves are better from september to may and then is when our surflessons occur, from may to september there usually are no waves in são pedro and is where we can go SUP.

Cascais is the perfect place to learn how to surf. The town is surrounded by many different types of beaches. The best beginners/intermediate surf beach is Guincho (pronounced Ginchu) 5 km's north west of Cascias town. It's a beautiful kilometre long stretch of beach.

Further north are two excellent beginners beaches Praia das Macas & Praia Grande. They are well worth the trip as they will take you past Cabo da Roca, mainland Europes most Western Point with a pretty impressive cliff top view.

A few hundred metres East of Cascais is Monte Estoril beach which has a small righthand wave that breaks regularly. There is a car park at its base accessed from a slip road above.

Follow the road east of Cascais along the Tagus river (Tejo in Portuguese) towards Lisbon and you will come across beach after beach offering a vast amount of surf: Bica is a great longboarders break on Sao Pedro beach. The beach has a few surf bars and restaurants and is a great place to spend the day.

Closer to Lisbon is Carcavelos beach - as the Stormriders surf guide call it: "the original and still one of the best Portuguese surf spots". Its a very consistent beach break and home to some of Portugals best surfers.

Its also worth taking the trip across the river Tagus to Costa Caparica - driving over the spectacular Ponte 25 de Abril bridge leaving Lisbon behind you. Costa Caprica is a 30 km strip of coast with some of the most consistent surf in Portugal.
