Thanks for the thermal spots tips guys- invaluable! Less than 1 week to go now!

Just wondering re wetsuit: will a 2mm shorty be enough for both the Algarve and Peniche area or should I bring my 3/2mm Long leg/short arm?

Thanks

I think peniche is better, you can ride in the lagoon,its near of peniche, in Foz do Arelho, and in peniche you have nice spots with waves in Baleal Beach, and Supertubos Beach.
Carekini, you are giving a wrong information! First: it is forbidden to kite in Lagoa de Ã’bidos, from 1/06 until 30/09/2007!! Second: if you know so well the other spots, like Baleal, and Supertubos, for sure i would should know that the worst season in Peniche, is from +- 15/07 until end of September!!
So, my advice is: go to Faro or Viana! Believe me, i live in Peniche!
:bye:

Well I am arriving in Peniche on tuesday morning so fingers crossed!

plm- Can I ask what wetsuit you use? I heard that the water in Portugal is colder than England as you don't have the gulf stream- is that true!? :lol:

A 3/2 will be be enough! Sometimes i only wear a lycra. In Peniche, usually the water temperature is good, specially on the north shore, the beach that goes from Peniche to Baleal. Hope you have luck with the wind. :thumb:
