I have been surfing Biarritz in France and Portugal for a month or so also backpacking, so I thought I would give you my thoughts. I got some info from Surfing Europe book from low pressure publications, and in Biarritz you can hire a board from towñ, or better from guthery about 6km south for about 17 euro a day or 75 euro a week. Beach breaks in Biarritz area, whilst reefs and points in Guthery are excellent. Portugal has board hire both in Ericera and Peniche, excellent beach breaks and reef and points at both locales.

If you want to meet some girls....hang out at the 'Chambre d'amour" just north of Biarritz......all of the beaches along this coastal city called Anglet have fun easy waves unless there is a big swell, where everything can turn into Sunset beach style waves!

I'm planning a surf trip for late March in the Europe area. Anyone know where the biggest/most consistent swell is at that time of year. Can't find much on the web to help, any pointers would be awesome. Cheers. Chris.

If you're thinking of traveling for surf you should also consider Ireland and Scotland.

Scotland has some amazing beach & reefs with practically no crowds (you'll understand why after the ridiculously long trip north) and Scotland is also freezing cold.

Ireland is alot warmer and also has an abundance of reefs and beach breaks. Surf available on North West and South Coast. For nice mellow beach breaks Kerry is your best bet. As long as ther wind is not directly west you can find off shore conditions
