Consolação

3/5

Everything you need to know about this surf spot

Consolação is situated on the south side of Supertubos beach (Peniche). It’s known for its long righthander breaking over a rocky bottom. Although the wave is often quite fat, it can offer long rippable walls especially with bigger swells. It can get really heavy here, so make sure you know what you are doing if you want to surf the right! The right is sheltered from most of the northern winds, making it often cleaner than most other spots on the west coast of Portugal. It’s best surfed with lower tides. Getting in and out of the water is tricky with the rocks!

On the other side (north) of the point, right next to the fortress, is a shorter but hollower left. This wave is less consistent and fickle, but can be really fun. The left starts on the reef, but ends in the sand. On the sand you also have a beach break with multiple peaks, perfect for the less experienced surfers. You can surf this spot not only with low tide, but also with more water.

When the swell is from the northern directions, the waves at Consolação are smaller since the peninsula of Peniche blocks the incoming swell.
