LAGOS - Meia Praia
Overview

A perfect flat water spot for Freeride, Slalom and Freestyle
 
The Algarve is a summer destination for all Wind surfers and Kite surfers, located in the extreme southwest of Europe and a few hours away from any European capital.
 
Meia Praia is a chosen spot for Windsurfing competitions at national and international level, the bay is about 4 km long and the Offshore winds blow almost every day during the summer, the place is ideal for practicing Windsurf, Kitesurf and Stand Up Paddle in the modalities of slalom, freestyle or freeride.
 
Lagos is and will always be a windy place, as in past centuries it was used as a place of departure of the ships that discovered the sea route to various parts of the world, this history remains present in some monuments that show the true value of this land.
