Welcome to Porto's most consistent surf

Matosinhos isn't just touted as the capital of world-class fish but also features a long and flexible stretch of beach with plenty of waves. There are plenty of different breaks catering to all levels of surfers. A pretty fun, sheltered and consistent righthander breaks off the breakwater that's always a touch smaller (and better) than further south.

Beginners and Intermediates have plenty of fun and easy beachy peaks, which can get crowded, especially during the summer months.

Although crowds play somewhat of a factor, the beach is big enough to spread out and find rippable peaks with just a handful of guys on it. The vibe is super friendly, and while you might find the occasional rock, it's pretty user-friendly.

Location, Location, Location

Casa Rietsch is just an easy 20min drive from the center of Porto, providing you with the best of both worlds. You can enjoy the hustle and bustle of the city, indulge in the incredible Portuguese cuisine and wine scenery or just stay put and spend the day on the beach or visit one of the plenty of sights Matosinhos has on offer.
