Consolação

Everything you need to now 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 more fickle, but can be really fun. The left starts on the reef, but ends in the sand. On the sand you also find a beachbreak with multiple peaks, perfect for the less experienced surfers. You can surf this not only with low tide, but also with more water.

Please note that Consolação has smaller waves with a swell from the more northern directions since the peninsula of Peniche is blocking it.
