The Quick & Dirty Guide to Surfing in Portugal

Surfing or Wellenreiten as we call it in the German language is one of the oldest adventure sports known to man. Historians have dated surfing as early as 3000 years ago, but the modern form of the sport as we know it today was developed in Hawaii couple of centuries ago. The sport came to Portugal much later, but now it’s a major sport for amateur surfers because of friendly waves that help a beginner.

For surfing, it’s not just enough have a surfboard and a thrill-seeking heart, one must also be in a good location where the waves are high and good for surfing. Over the years many exciting Wellenreiten locations have been discovered worldwide, some of them cherished for the high waves and the dangers. Many of the famous spots like supertubos and the beaches of Praia de Areia Branca gather the most skilled surfers from around the world.

But Wellenreiten in Portugal is not just for the pros. Beginners can have surfing fun too and Portugal beaches have a lot to offer to them. A beginner needs friendly waves that you can ride even if you are newbie, good instructors and places where you can rent surfing gear. Portugal has it all.

The beaches of Portugal are long and sandy, and the water of the sea is clear and warm even when the weather is cooler. You can spend your time lounging around the beachside on a chair, sipping from a cocktail, and when you’re ready for another round of Wellenreiten fun, you can don your wet-suit, grab your surfboard and wade right in.

If you are seeking a surfing holiday, there are many organizations in Portugal that can offer you packaged holidays that include learning sessions, and Wellenreiten practice with pros. They will guide you through the nitty-gritties of surfing, and help you master tricks that you can show-off back home.

Remember that Wellenreiten is an adventure sport, so there’s a slight amount of risk involved as well. You should not go for surfing if you don’t know swimming. When the surfboard overturns (as it does often even for pros), you need to be an energetic swimmer to get back to safety. Luckily, the surfing schools of Portugal are professional, and will tell you about all the safety precautions you need to take before you can begin surfing.

For the first few times that you go out to surf, it will be a great idea to use a soft-longboard so that you will not injure yourself or one of the other surfers in the waves. Most surfing-spots in Portugal have all this gear available on rent, so you don’t need to bring your own gear or buy expensive stuff if all you want is a few days of Wellenreiten fun.

Having fun together promotes bonding, and strengthens relationships. So it will be a great idea to go for a Wellenreiten holiday with your friends and family, and there’s no better spot for that than Portugal. Contrary to what some people believe, Wellenreiten is not just for young college-goers. Even if you’re older, or younger, you can still have fun with surfing.

So if you’re looking for a sporty, fun holiday. Go for Wellenreiten. Go to Portugal.
