Summary

Due to its geographical position Portugal is blessed with some seriously sweet swells throughout most of the year. For intermediate to advance surfers both Spring and Autumn is when best conditions are gathered for surfing. Swells do slow down in the summer period, which is when is best both for beginners to intermediate surfers.

Esposende is a top surfing area with beautiful, long, sandy beaches, perfect for someone wanting to learn or improve its skills. With an outside reef that slows down the Atlantic swells in some of its spots, you can always find a spot which will be more exposed or more protected from the waves suitable for every level of surf. Also, there are some sea walls along the beach which allow you to be more protected on stronger swells, they also originate point breaks which can deliver you some sweet surf sessions. The uniqueness of Esposende comes from its interaction with Cávado estuary its dune system and the Atlantic Ocean.

The surf in the region still enjoys the pleasure of uncrowded beaches and the fact that some of the spots are inside a natural reserve will give you some unforgettable experiences. Having different spots so close together gives us the opportunity each day to choose the one that gathers the best conditions for your specific level of surf.
We have several sizes of boards suitable for whatever is your level, both for lessons or rental. We have also a professional and experimented team, which is very familiar with the spot.
From the endless beach days, improving your skills or learning new ones in your favorite sport, having dinner in the best local restaurants enjoying the amazing Portuguese flavors, discovering new and old places and people. Toping that up with a night in the local renowned clubs, pubs, and cultural places around, and you have all the ingredients for some explosive vacations.
The proximity to two of the most emblematic cities of Portugal gives you the opportunity to travel back in time while exploring medieval sites and discover the legacy of Porto and Guimarães on their world heritage historical center.

MORE INFO, HOW TO GET THERE & FAQ


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

The spots we go to are all sandy beach spots, all are at close distance and can be reached in less than 20min. Some are accessible by boat and some by car.

Seasonal conditions

The temperature in the Atlantic coast is around 18-20C in the water. Outside temperature ranges between 20C and 28C, the wind is stronger in the afternoon and usually nonexistant in the morning. Waves are pretty consistent all year round.

Crowd factor and local people

Our main spot is only for us as the beach is a bit exclusive. Since we go by boat only we can use this hidden gem. The other spots are also used by other schools and surfers as they are accessed by car. Still, those are not super crowded and can be surfed pretty alone.

Amazingly friendly and kind staff at Kook Proof in Esposende. Huge thanks for everything over the course of our holiday! Shame the broken ankle our group incurred wasn't a surfing injury, but massive thanks again for all your help and understanding. Recommend Kook Proof to any surf-heads in and around Portugal.
