florida girl to spain

Peace and love from florida!

im moving to the basque area in september for a year.  I have never been surfing in spain and wonder what are good spots in northern spain?  any good point breaks? beach breaks?  I have a 3/2 wetsuit, is that thick enough for the water temperature? I have decided not to bring my board and to buy one there, does anyone know any good shapers? or good surf shops in the area?  I also tend to favor fish and old school shaped boards, will that suit most breaks in Europe?

There are many surf spots in the vasque country (too many to name here).
You will need a 3/2 un autumn and spring (oct, nov., april, may) and a 4/3 or 5/4/3 & booties in winter (dec, jan, feb, march) as the water can get pretty cold.
There are also many places where you can buy boards at around 350-450 Euros, of all shapes and sizes. Shapers are very good, at least what I know from San Sebastian.
Drop me a line for more details.
Peace and Love from Donosti,

So how are you enjoying Spain? Have you been in the water yet?

You need a 4/3. You can buy a decent secondhand board for 150 euros. Visit the web Buenasolas for all the info about spots. This season conditions have been the best in the last 20 years. Offshore winds and lots of swell. Spanish tow-in riders at hawaian levels with plenty of new spot discoveries.
