Portugal has always been a little bit different. Steeped in seafaring traditions, it has historically been the stepping stone for epic exploration. Following these legendary voyagers, the local surfing population has long been discovering new watery gold along the entire Portuguese coast. It's wealth lies in the variety, power and consistency of cool-water waves that strike the gnarled, rocky reefs and explosive sandbanks. Considering the year-round reliability, quality of the set-ups and sun that just won't quit, it's little wonder that for many surf travellers, Portugal leaves the fondest of European memories.
