Surfing Figueira da Foz
With The Paintshop Surf Camp Portugal
Our fully qualified English-speaking surf teachers are all from Figueira da Foz so offer a wealth of knowledge about the best surfing spots in town. The two well known surfing breaks are Cabedelo and Buarcos:
- Cabedelo is situated South of Figueira da Foz across the mouth of the River Mondego and has hosted the ASP WQS Men's 6* Qualifying Series as well as national and local surfing competitions. The best conditions to surf Cabedelo are in medium swells, the break is off-shore in Easterly winds. This beach break works on all states of the tide.
- Buarcos is to the North of town and boasts Europe's longest right-hand break. It works best on mid to low tides and is a sand covered rocky point break and there can be strong rips when the swell is big, so only attempt to surf this break if you're experienced.
There's loads of other breaks within walking distance, public transport and driving - but we're not going to tell you about them until you're here, we can't have the whole world knowing about all the spots!
Unike Peniche, Figueira da Foz's beaches and waves are uncrowded so no fear of fighting for the waves and dropping in on one another!! Our surf class sizes are small to ensure individual attention within the group, safety and of course FUN!!
