Olá im David
Ola, I’m David and i’m a natural born surfer from Lisbon.
I started surfing when i was 6 years old and i loved to travel in my own country and the islands of portugal. In my teenage time i start to explore the world and i was fascinated from the diferent cultures, the food, the people i met. But it took me to Sao Miguel island for which i felt in love to live and surf here.
The Azores archipelago is in the middle of the atlantic ocean, 1.360 km west of Portugal.
They are vulcanic islands which were developed during the 14th century from portuguese sailors.
Their vulcanic mountanious shapes and the year round mild and humid climate with its blooming green vegitation is coming from the warm gulf stream.
Sao Miguel is the largest of the nine islands and it’s nickname “The Green Island” is exactly what you can expect when your travel here.
Its green graslands are ending into the ocean, the vulcanic landscape is covered in green and flowerish vegetation. You find cows crossing the streets, the freshest fish and stunning landscape while exploring the islands.
The hot springs are famous for taking a warm bath and you find them in the mountains and near the ocean.
If you think you saw it all, take a tour to the flourish tea fields and take a hike to the stunning waterfalls.
Your journey will be unforgetable by visiting this beautiful island.
Sao Miguel has the most surfspots and also the most surfers of all islands. Although this sounds busy, the waves are empty and you won’t find any crowded spot.
The year round climate and water temperature is mild, which doesn’t go lower than 16°c in winter and gets as warm as 22°c from august till November.
You’ll find all sorts of waves here, easy beachbreaks which work best on the summers southswells and consistent pointbreaks at the westcoast.
“The Green Island” is the only one of all the island which has northfacing beaches and it’s here where you have the punchy beachbreaks, powerful reefbreaks and the most stunning reef breaks where you walk throug the paradisiacal landscape downhill.
The closer you come to to your surfspot, you almost cant believe that heaven exists on earth.
In winter bring a 4×3 wetsuit, spring and autum a spring or thinner full suit whilst in summertime you enjoy surfing in boardshorts.
Bring your everyday surfboard and for the bigger day a longer semi gun.
We also rent material for beginner and advanced and also do provide surflessons and surf guiding tours.
