I´m from Ireland, though in Leon, (3/4 hours north of madrid) at the moment studying Spanish! I´m about an hour and a half away from some really good beaches,lots to choose from it´s just finding the right one on the right day, though can´t say yet which one is worth the trip as haven´t gone yet! The city gijon has a beach though don´t know how good the waves are, it would be direct on the bus from Madrid! Im heading up there 1st of April to check it out! Also headin up to a small town called Tapia in asturias during semana santa for check out a surfing competion, so must be swell there as well ! If you can make it up to the basque region, san sansebastion or mundaka is worth checking out! Well good luck, yourmore land locked then I am, I´m hoping I´ll sort myself out pretty sooon!

i am from spain. You must surf in the noth of spain. You can go from Mdrdid to Basque country. but it akes 4 hours of travel. There is Asturias or Cantabria (5h) and Galicia (6-7h).
In Basque country there is a LOT of surfers...and localism...but very good waves too.
The watter in north of spain is cold (maybe how in france or south of england) you need wetsuit (4/5). in summer maybe short wetsuit.
Madrid is awful for a surfer : ( ...try to survive and confort with the good and famouse spanish partys
