I live just South of Malaga in a town called Benalmadena. Just down the way when the swell is right, there is a spot at the southern end of a town called Fuengirola by Parque Castillo. There are also some fun little waves in front of my house by a beach bar called La Cubana. Being from CA, US, these waves seem small, but some fun small waves are a million times better than no waves at all. There seem to be rideable waves about six to ten times a month. I have been barreled in the Mediterranean sea. You can also go down to Cadiz, just a few hours drive further South, and find some decent waves right as you enter the city. Please contact me if anyone is planning to come to this area and wants to surf, I would be happy to show you some spots. My email is "dustin at"

My girlfriends just booked flights for us around May June time. Ive been in and around Cadiz during the winter months before, but as I said it was during winter and the waves were fine. Me ladys positive that there are waves to be had at this time of year as she's was there this time last year. I kind of think she's at it trying to get my hopes up, but id rather not drag the board around, followed by the extra traveling expenditure due to it.
However, if you think there could be a cheeky swell - no matter how BIG, i'll gamble and take the be gutted to get there, see a swell and not have a board.
Your thoughts would be appreciated

Hi, I know its been a while since this conversations were active but i was wondering if there is a place near Malaga where you can rent a board and surf? Im comming in two weeks but I cant bring surfboard and I would really want to try surfing in Spain. If you could recommend some spots that would be great. Thanks
