our hours are:
As for surfing, we have three beaches and a handful of breaks. Notably, Anjos in the north & Praia Formosa (which we call Praia) to the south. Anjos gets mostly northern + western swells and works most of the year, though best in the winter months. Praia is best in summer, when we get swells from deep south. Both have classic point breaks, while Praia has a few beach breaks as well.
We surf + Paddle (SUP) year-round, as the water temperature averages 17-24.
To rent a board feel free to reach out ahead of time, to make sure we have what you need available, summer rentals can get busy, as well as see about current/upcming conditions and swell.
