Praia da Amorosa in Douro and Minho is an exposed beach and reef break that has pretty consitent surf and can work at any time of the year. Offshore winds blow from the east northeast and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the optimum swell angle is from the west. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights together with both left and right hand reef breaks offshore. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. When it's working here, it can get crowded. Surfing here means negotiating dangerous rips.
