Europe offers a wide variety of cultures, languages and currencies but also a large variety of surf spots.
From the world-class left hander of Mundaka and the great beach breaks of Hossegor to cold big wave spots of Ireland.
If you are going on an extended surf trip to some countries, you will need lots of different wetsuit and boards.
Crowds can cause some problems in the busy summer months along with long flat spells.
In Winter you will need a thick wetsuit on most countries except for the Canary island where board shorts are sufficient year-round. It's not a place for the budget traveler anymore, especially with the Euro exchange rate.
