MORE INFO, HOW TO GET THERE & FAQ


SURF CONDITIONS
Breaks directly at the main spot and at nearby spots

Espinho has mainly 2 spots:

“Baía’s” righthander: Located on the main beach, the wave runs on a regular beachbreak setup on small and medium swells that can turn into a classic righthand pointbreak, when conditions cooperate along the jetty. The beach it’s just 20 metres from our house.

 “Cagalhotos”: 1 km south from the main beach, the wave is similar to Espinho’s main spot but often longer and more friendly, even though it shows some nice an long barrels when conditions are settled.

Seasonal conditions

Summer swells, like in all surf spots in Portugal, are usually smaller comparing to Winter swells. Water temperature goes from ok/warm (21ºC) to cold (11ºC)- 3.2 mm or 4.3 mm wetsuit.

Crowd factor and local people

Crowd in Espinho is a reality, even though it’s not massive like in many other quality surf spots.
