Peniche Surf Tips & Weather

The climate in this part of Portugal is very pleasant all year round. Peniche & Peniche surf spots are in the middle of the country. Stuck between the dry Algarve and the damp regions north of Porto. The winter season starts in November and last until March, but still with mild temperatures. The best climate occurs during a change over seasons. The Nortada (north winds) always cool things down. A light 2mm or 3/2mm steamer will do a job, except in winter months when 4/3mm is a better option. There are no major hazards near or at any Peniche surf spots apart from obvious rocks and some spots with urchins…and a bit of localism here and there. The stink of fish being processed in the factory near Supertubos can be as heavy as the wave. You can check Peniche surf forecast or even live video camera to choose your next spot for surf session.
