THE OUTPOST SURF RETREAT PACKAGE
OUTPOST SURF RETREAT
We are thrilled to announce our first OUTPOST SURF RETREAT for the last week of November 2019 (23rd - 30th)
. Come and join us for guided tours to almost empty breaks with quality waves on the Sintra coast. Recover, relax and unwind with yoga and massages in our comfortable apartments right on the cliffs just 40 minutes from Lisbon.
SURF CONDITIONS IN NOVEMBER
The surf in November can be anything from perfect and glassy to stormy and messy. In any case we will always have plenty of swell to work with. When it's too big for the west-facing beaches here, some of the more sheltered spots around the Cascais coastline will provide nice alternatives. The beaches south of Lisbon, also just a short drive away, can produce magical waves with north or west winds and big swells. The big wave spot of Nazaré, also comes alive around that time. So you might be lucky and see the world’s best big wave surfers towing into the gigantic waves, definitely worth the 1-hour trip north.Water is fresh, but you will be just fine with a 2/3mm wet suit.
