surftrip over long weekend!
Posted November 30th, 2011 - 11:09 am by from Hannover, Germany (Permalink)
heey everybody! next week are some holidays
I have been doing some surfing in barcelona
and now I am really keen to do a bit of a discover
trip in spain with the surfboard.
we can rent a car - or maybe someone has one? -
and gooo : )

anybody interested?

I always wonder about the people who say to surf in barcelona.
how is that? never in my life i saw real surfing waves.

I usually go to surf to basque country. it's pretty easy to get there (5h in a comfortable and moderately unexpensive train). the problem now is that waves easily reach 3-4 mt. (that is waves). we can check for next weekend and maybe we're lucky enough that the come down to 1-2 mt.

how do you fancy that?

well, if you'd go to barceloneta or marbella, you would see loads of people surfing there, the whole winter...the waves are not big, but ideal for beginners, like me :)
as you say, waves in the north of spain (from zarautz to san sebeastian, liencres etc.) tend to be quite big these days. i think too big for me to drive up there and surf. if the forecast was different, i may consider going - lets keep in touch.
ps: do you have wetsuits/boards?

I have everything (in zarautz, right now).
I am very suspicious at the possibility of seeing nice waves (even for beginners) in barcelona, but, please, surprise me. Let me know when there are and I will join you (just for watching since my equipment is in the basque country -or, if anyone allows me to ride a couple of mediterranean waves -my first ones).
keep in touch.

well, yea I have a wetsuit and the board.
so I didnt understand the message you want to
go to surf here in barcelona or somewhere different?

the forecast at the moment is that there will be something coming in on the weekend, but the idea was to see a
bit of spain and also surf.

ivan, we can go visit the basque country with you
and surf at the same occasion : )
