The Azores is an autonomous region of Portugal that consists of 9 islands. Most surf spots can be found on the islands of São Miguel and Terceira and what – besides amazingly stunning landscapes – makes the journey to the Azores worth chasing the surf far away from Portugal’s mainland are its quality waves and uncrowded lineups. During winter time sets on the Azores can get quite big and strong and a certain level of experience is recommended.

Point Break

At a point break, the shoreline juts out into the water to form a headland. A wave that is lengthy, well-formed, and unlikely to close out or break in front of itself is created when a wave strikes a headland or pier and starts to peel down the extended shoreline. Point breaks typically only have one takeoff point and only travel in one direction, so you might have to wait in line to catch a wave. At these specific surf spots, quality prevails over quantity.
