On 8th and 9th of September, Canide Sul beach in Vila Nova de Gaia will once again host the Atlantic Surf Fest. This event promises music, sport and lots of excitement!

This is the quintessential event for lovers of water sports, nature, beaches and – not forgetting – music! On the program are not only concerts but also lots of other interesting events, including the final of the National Longboard Circuit taking place on the second day of the program.

Over the two days there will be demonstrations and chances to try out kitesurfing, paddle surfing, ski surfing and kayak surfing. The music bill features such artists as Gonçalo Bilé, who will be presenting his new album, João Dinis and DJ Ras Fernando, a lover of reggae, hip hop and world music. Tickets are free.

When visiting northern Portugal, water sport and nature lovers should not miss the opportunity to discover the beaches of the surrounding area. Breathtaking views and the unmistakable salt smell of the open ocean are just a few of the unique characteristics of Portugal’s northern coastline.
