Surfing in Portugal
This past weekend our group went to Portugal. The second day we were there, we went to a beautiful town called Carrapateira, and we took surfing lessons. The beach was absolutely beautiful, and it was surrounded by cliffs. We started with warm-ups and bodysurfing. Afterwards, our instructor showed us the basics, and within a half hour we were in the water. Only a few people were actually able to stand up, while the rest of us failed repeatedly. However, it was an incredibly unique experience that we all had a blast.
