Algarve surf trip - day 1

Since Feb 5th was a holiday here, I took the 4th off and went on a surf trip with a friend last saturday to Algarve (in the south of Portugal). We arrived in the evening, so only went surfing sunday morning.
It was strong onshore on all the south coast, so the only chance was the west coast around Sagres. After some traveling through the middle of nowhere...

We finally found a spot reasonably protected from the strong winds

Had a few waves there, but the conditions were worse than what it looks. Better than nothing, though.
On the way back home, we checked Zavial, on the south coast. I'll post a video with Zavial pumping some other day.

More photos tomorrow!
