    This is one OF the top Spots for surfing in Portugal, Cabedelo Beach ( Kelly Slater was world champion on this same Spot) be aware Of BIG Swells . Check-up weaker conditions carefully. I would go for the cabedelinho Spot norte and inside the protected area prior to the Marina way in.

    Mooring good and good. sheltered from the prevailing winds of North (see North-West). The swell of North West returns but we were not embarrassed by it because it was a long swell. Be careful to wet where there is more than 4m of bottom on the charts because at low tide the swell "swells" where there is less bottom.

    Mouillage de bonne tenue et bien. abrité des vents dominants de Nord (voir Nord-Ouest). La houle de Nord Ouest rentre mais nous n'avons pas été gêné par elle car c'etait une longue houle. Faire attention de mouiller la ou il y a plus de 4m de fond sur les cartes car à marée basse la houle "gonfle" la ou il y a moins de fond.
