Winter seasons continue to provide more challenging waves, leaning more towards the intermediate to advanced surfer.
However the dual coastlines situated in Europe’s most southwestern point gives us the advantage of having two sides to the coin. When one side of the tip has big waves the other has smaller less powerful surf in which beginners can flourish.
We have a very large variety of waves including quality reef, point, and beach breaks!
These quality waves go unridden, day after day, sometimes you feel as if we are the only surfers in the world.
The weather is warm with the occasional hot spell, in winter we wear long pants and a sweatshirt or hoody in the mornings and evenings. But during the day the weather is warm enough to get a tan!
The odd storm whips up swell for us but in general the weather is awesome!
The town of Lagos is more sedate in the winter. The bars and restaurants are not as full, but the charm still remains.
We do a lot of earlies and surf as long as possible, so most of the time after a sensational feed and a few beers everyone, is crying out for a sleep.
The water temperature varies in between 14-16 degrees, so a 3”2 or a 4”3 wetsuit will be enough.
Whether you wish to improve your, style, speed, repertoire or fitness, the winter is the pick for surfers who wish to bring their ability to a higher plain!
We look forward to surfing with any of you who wish to sample the very best waves this stretch of coastline has to offer.
