Whether its surfing, Kiteboarding, wakeboarding or windsurfing, the Algarve has it all. The Algarve is located in the south west tip of Portugal and it possesses unique conditions for every type of water activity you could think of. For surfers the waves are regularly bustling and ready to go each morning, and then in the afternoon it suits the kiteboarder very well. Wakeboarding is also a good option when the water is calm and flat.
The surf conditions have all year round Atlantic swells, with an endless choice of beaches and reef breaks. There is a huge swell window at the south and westcoast with wind protected surf spots.
