San Sebastian or Santander

I'm looking to study abroad this summer.  my school has an exchange with a place in Santander.  I've surfed for a long time and have done quite alot of surf travel.  From everything I've been reading on this site, san sebastian seems like a better place to be based out of.  it would mean trying to get into a different university and hoping credits would transfer and all that headache.  Is one location that much better than the other as far as consistant waves/quality of life goes.  I'd appreciate any local knowledge. Thanks

RE: San Sebastian or Santander

I was there about 16 years ago a the end of the summer.  The whole area has potential.  I surfed with a guy named Juan Carlos Ncimiento whos father owned a small hotel in th area.  There is a surfing population there in the San Seb area.  The bay I surfed was in Pntevedra and had potential.  Tide sensitive, a pretty spot.  East of there I found lots of beautiful reefs and coves as well as river mouths.  I was a little to early in the season.  Good Luck.....it is great and so is the Food.

If you've got a place in Santander Uni, stay there....its a great town and theres always something working somewhere nearby. I reckon theres a lot more to chose from around Santander than San Sebastian, but saying that, San sebastian is a cool town!!

Thanks to both of you for the advice.  Much appreciated.  Looks like I'll be sticking with Santander.  If I can finagle some transportation while I'm there I should be all set.  thanks again
