March and November- The Secret Surf Months

Why March and November are the Secret Surf Months in the Algarve

The January blues have set in and summer seems like a long way off. Instead of crossing off the calendar days and wishing away the months, your next sun soaked surf escape could be sooner than you think.

1. Sunshine

With temperatures barely dropping below 19ºc even in January. The Algarve has one of the mildest climates in Europe, we say it’s #neverwinter.

This week we’ve had a comfortable 20ºc in the sunshine and not a cloud in the sky! In the evenings temperatures do drop, but that’s what our fire pit in the garden is for! Post surf beers in front of the open fire anyone? Doesn’t have the same effect in summer.


2. Beaches

Famous for our 2 stunning coastlines, South and West there are plenty of beaches to explore. Outside of the summer months you’ll find tranquil blue waters and deserted beaches to have all to yourself. No need to fly for 12 hours in search of paradise in Thailand or another faraway destinations, we’ve found your beach and it’s only 3 hours away from London.


3. Surf

We couldn’t do a list without the mention of Surf. Winter swells might be smashing up most the coastlines in Europe and the UK, delivering massive waves that only the advance can enjoy.

We however reap the benefits! The swell wraps around the most westerly point of Europe to deliver us clean and fun sized waves on our South Coast. With a variety of west and south facing beaches, we have optimum conditions for learning to surf and dreamy green waves ideal for intermediates.

3.5 Empty Line Ups

Continuing our surf talk for just another moment. Avoiding summer, means avoiding the crowds. The Line Ups are near empty. Join the friendly locals on their favourite spots at their favourite time of the year. No aggro here, just a great group of surfers out enjoying the best waves of the year.


4. Really Portuguese Portugal

Get a flavour the authentic Portuguese culture. Without crowds of summer, the Portuguese unwind slows down and takes time to enjoy their beautiful country. Explore the towns and villages of the Algarve, eat in local restaurants indulging freshly caught fish, enjoy great coffee and pastal de natas in the sunshine.

In Spring the landscapes are so vibrant and green too!



5. Cheap Flights

Take advantage of the low cost flights from all over Europe to Faro. You’ll quite easily pick up a flight to Faro with any low cost Airline for less than 60€ Return. YES RETURN. If you weren’t sure if you could afford a holiday until summer, think again!

If all of this has tempted you to escape the winter with us, join us for our Never Winter Packages running the March, April and November.

My surfing seemed to have hit a dead end in terms of progression and in the last four years I was getting nowhere. Dom and the guys really knew how to isolate some key skills that I was missing during the week in terms of body position and reading waves and the ocean. Now I've nailed cutbacks and vastly improved my backside riding, not to mention almost doubling my wave count! I've also altogether become a more confidant surfer able to take on more challenging conditions. I would recommend this course to anyone who's serious about improving their surf skills and knowledge, you will not be disappointed! Becca UK
