MORE INFO, HOW TO GET THERE & FAQ


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

Ribeira D’Ilhas - closest reef break (1 km)
This wave is the most well-known wave of the region. There are several peaks in the bay of Ribeira d ´Ilhas. They are all right handers and there can be found a wave suitable for each level. The bottom is rocky but the waves break in deep water. The waves are known for their length and can be surfed on all tides. It is good to surf here in our company because it gets pretty crowded. Ribeira D´Ilhas is the third wave of the reserve.

Santa Cruz - further away, beach break
Besides these seven waves there are many more waves around Ericeira. One of the beaches we might go to is Santa Cruz. A small coastal town just 20 minutes north from Ericeira.

Coxos - only for advanced surfers, 2 km
Coxos is considered to be the best right hander in Europe because of its consistency, length and perfection. The wave is tubular and breaks over a flat rock. There are many sea urchins so you have to be careful with going in and out of the water. It works best on a low tide and is only suitable for more experienced surfers. Coxos is the sixth wave of the reserve.

The surfing Reserve has seven waves - not all mentioned here -  there are many more waves in Ericeira.

Seasonal conditions
Ericeira waves are surfable during the whole year - the month June - September are more crowded - this is the time our surfing school, when conditions allow, goes to Santa Cruz, bit further away, beach break - less people!

It’s been a great week in Omassin, physically challenging and energetic. Mentally stimulating and refreshing. Joined there by my sisters and a lovely bunch of new friends. Lia, Eduardo and staff create an atmosphere that promotes growth in so many ways.
