WHAT´S HAPPENING?

Prozis Surf Pro Espinho happens in late June

Time to look for a surf hostel in Portugal again, because come the end of July, Prozis Surf Pro Espinho will bring the best junior surfers in Europe to the waves of Espinho, competing to win the second leg of the European Pro Junior championship.prozis surf pro

The inscriptions are now open and the current junior champion Tessa Thyssen has already signed up, but for now the current edition is being dominated by Portuguese surfers, with Miguel Blanco and Teresa Bonvalot having taken the trophy home in the first leg, in Caparica. Right now, there are already over 70 surfers signed up for the competition, with more to come in what should be a large scale event.

In fact, athletes from Israel, Finland and even the Czech Republic are expected to attend, showing that the passion for surf can live on in countries with no seashore. 

As for Espinho, it has one of the longest histories pertaining to surf in Portugal. The area is predominantly an exposed beach break, with a pontoon to the north, creating a point break, while right-handers are the norm. The spot is also known for a consistency that allows year-round surfing.

Why is Portugal a surf destination?

Portugal is decidedly in the international surf circuit and this summer will have plenty of activities pertaining to the sport, so consider yourself invited to come and have a taste of our shore for some of the best swells in Europe. It's not all sand and beaches, though, and one of the reasons why Portugal is so attractive to surfers is the countrys large investment in the development of surfer-friendly infrastructures. Right now, the country already has one of Europe's largest and best networks of surf schools, learning centres and surf hostels known for the affordable prices and high quality. All of this comes together to make Portugal one of the most sought-after surf destinations in Europe and the world.
