We await the changing of the seasons, the water is still warm to the touch but there is a slight chill in the air as the golden light begins to fade. This time of year usually delivers at least a few magical days to savour through the winter months.. clear skies, offshore winds and a some small peelers to cruise along as the sun sets. What more could you want! These are the last days of summer.
Returning to Portugal after cruising down to Morocco and the beautiful but slightly wave lacking Spanish mediterranean coast, we struck gold! For a good week the wind switched offshore and beachbreaks of south west Portugal turned on, it’s safe to say we made the most of it, multiple surfs a day plus the weather was also pretty good!
Here’s a selection of shots including Matt surfing a sweet right hand sandbank, it shifted throughout the week and that’s when the lefts slightly further down the beach started turning on and there were pumping barrels to be had! We chatted to a few locals after snapping some post surf pictures before the light faded one night, and they as well as us were comparing it to Indonesian reefbreak quality.. it was epic!!
So we hope you enjoy looking through the images.
