Esposende is where the Cavado river meets the ocean. Sheltered by sand dunes at the river mouth the spot offers flat water conditions as well as waves. Due to the thermal winds in the summer the wind always exceeds the forecast with an average of 18-25 knots. This phenomenon is called “Nortada” - which means “Strong North Wind.” Water temperatures rise to about 18-20 degrees, a 3/2mm wetsuit minimum is recommended.
