Summary

Our surf house in Espinho, a small city by the sea 20 km south of Porto, northern Portugal, is located just two steps from the beach. It was built in 1939 and still keeps some of its original features, as its high ceilings, walls and tiles. It was recently renewed to be the perfect destination to make the most of a beach vacation in Portugal, especially surfing lovers, who can recover their power in a cosy place socialize with their fellow mates.

3. Our services and facilities will allow you to take the most out of your stay: surfing lessons, yoga, SUP, skates…

4. Supermarkets, bars, restaurants, shops (surf shop included) and the train station are very close to the house.

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 and 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.
