NAZARÉ XXL WAVES & SURF BOARD MAKING
Feel inspired, adventurous, goosebumps, curious, involved
Watch the XXL waves in Nazaré and surf in the Portuguese surf mecca.
Nazaré it’s one of Mother Nature’s most powerful, spine-tingling displays to watch monstrously huge waves crashing into shore from a stormy sea. This is not a beach for tourists, it’s the place where Garret McNamara made his world record by surfing the highest swell ever done before. Surfers have been taking to Nazaré XXL waves as part of the World Surf League’s, Big Wave Awards. There you feel the wonder of nature because the force of the ocean is impressive and the atmosphere is just fantastic. The views are spectacular from the cliffs above to the Atlantic coast. It is a nice place to lay back and enjoy a sun soaked day, eat lunch or take a nice walk.
After feeling inspired by this experience we go for a surf lesson -adapted to your level- in world class waves such as Supertubos or Baleal in the Portuguese surf mecca, Peniche. With a southwest swell and an offshore this sandy beach is one of the best surf spots in Portugal.
On the next spot near Ericeira knowing that Portuguese traditional gastronomy will also add feelings to your journey, we will advise you about the best spot to lunch and relax while sharing a good Portuguese wine with the best fresh fish in Europe. After lunch we will visit the well known Semente Surfboards fabric and see the process of making a Surfboard – a must for all Surf enthusiasts. Semente Surfboards involvement and dedication to surfboard design and construction had a major impact on Portuguese surfing. The constant evolution in surfboards both in design and material have kept Semente surfboards at the vanguard and enabled them to bridge from generation to generation.
To close this amazing journey we head to Ericeira Vila to have a drink while appreciating the Atlantic breeze and the beautiful sunset low-lying on the sea.
