SEASONS & LEVEL
With average temperatures of 18ºC (64.4 Fº), the Azores offer mild conditions for a pleasant stay. From rain forests and rainbows to blue skies and sunshine, the islands offer a unique experience for nature lovers. The temperature of sea water varies between 15ºc (59 Fº) in winter and 26ºc (78,8 Fº) in summer which makes surfing very enjoyable. Most beach breaks have good surf all year long due to the constant west and north-west swells.
The surf spots around São Miguel Island suit every level of surf, from beginner to world-class professional.
Depending on the low tide, the surf check and lessons vary every day since we want to offer the best surf conditions all the time.
