What are the best surf conditions for Arrifanain in South Algarve?
Gets good between head high and triple overhead. We recommend riding a shortboard here if smaller and a step up when it starts pumping. This break is suitable for intermediate and advanced surfers. The surf here does not break often (3/10) and will be crowded when it does (8/10). The best winds are from the East. The best swells are from the North, Northwest, Southwest, and West. Works on a low to mid-tide best.
