Hello, Ill be in lissabon for about 2weeks.. starting Feb5th, and I was wondering if someone could give me a quick breif on the closest spots to the city..?

Ok about Lisbon.

Lisbon is the capital and like all capitals it's a big city for living.
I don't recomend you to stay in Guincho area cause in the near by you don't have any other beach to kite, and like taabsr said Guincho in the it's quind a gusty.

If you stay in the south margin of Tejo you will find much more cheaper houses to rent, you escape from the stress of passing trough 25 de Abril bridge (it's simple a nigthmare) and you have beaches from almost all the winds in Costa da Caparica 15 20 Km from Lisbon (Waves) or in Lagoa de Albufeira (a lagoon) all this with North winds (after april this is the consistent wind) if some south wind comes you go to Troia 100 Km from Lisbon (South) (Flat Water) or to Peniche also about 100 Km to North (Waves).

I think if you came to Portugal you will have a lot of sites to choose

Pedro you can give a report from South of Portugal.

I hope you come to Portugal and enjoy our weather and wind.

Just post a message if you come to Lisbon and I will show you some spots.
