SAGRES SURF TOWN

PORTUGAL by KRISS on 27 april 2017

Is Portugal to Europe what Hawaii is to the Pacific ocean ? What am I even talking about ! I think Lanzarote is supposed to be that if you don’t take into account the weather, the lush jungle and all that and only focus on “volcanic island with huge waves”.
And in that category I believe Portugal is also some kind of temple of surfers because it does have huge breaks ! However the little town of Sagres where we stopped for a few hours didn’t have huge waves that day but perfect little waves, all smooth and kind for all levels and ages… and there were a few surfers in the water !

Sagres is literally the end of the world, well it was for centuries, people believed the world ended beyond that point.
We are at the southern west point of Portugal.
The road that gets you there is a cul de sac and if it was to be cut for some reason, you wouldn’t be able to get out of Sagres.

So the place feels special and as soon as you enter the town, the many surf shops let you in on the vibe of the place.

For some reason I did not take all the right decisions for this road trip : first I left the boards at home and the wetsuits.
I only took a lycra shirt for myself and I decided to leave my underwater bag at the apartment that afternoon.

So we arrived at the Praia do Tonel with absolutely no expectation what was in for us and I immediately regretted not having brought anything, cameras or boards to enjoy the place ! One good thing though, it felt nice to be in such a place and confirmed what we already know as regards to our next move.
It has to have some surf and some different crowds !
