anyone in barcelona area?

« on: January 27 2005 09:01:00 »

Hi guys,
I'll be living in Barcelona until April, and was wondering if there's anyone from that area who could give me some general tips about surfing.
I've seen surfers in Barceloneta, and read about Masnou on this site. Are there other spots near?
I'm pretty much a beginner, took a course for 2 weeks in summer, so I don't care about pro stuff ^_^
Which kind of board would be best (gonna rent one)? Is a short suit sufficient in Feb/Mar/Apr? Etc, etc... ;)

Hi there, not too much going on around here,  Go south To stges  about 20 minutes drive.
Much woth it go to  SW fronce ( around 5hours).   Drp me an email when you get here   and i can get you a board and go searching. But I used to live in Scal for several years and here is even worse that  the east coast.

hi barcelona surfers,

if youre looking for chilled out affordable accommodation in the centre of the city, try the Welcome Inn hostel, from 35 euro pn for a double room, with tv, terrace and modern kitchen in the centre of town, 10 minutes from the beach! or get your own apartment: Welcome Apartments offer you your own apartment(sleeps up to 8 people) from as little as 60 euro per night.

Hi there Steve. I will be in Barcelona around September studying.  I am looking for a long term, at least 6 month apartment for rent.  I won't have a need for one until mid October but I am planning on living with other people…around 3-4 of us total.  Do you have anything that might suit my situation? Any 3 bed affordable apartments that might be close to the water?  Also…any places you recommend to surf out there?   Thanks a lot! Lea

Hey stef, I've been living in barcelona for a couple of months now and i am actually surprised about the surf out here. Its pretty alright. Nothing big but occasionally you have some nice waves around barceloneta. I havnt found a place to rent boards, and buying them is pretty expensive cause the market for surfing is pretty small out here. It could be worth bringing your board down. But dont expect too many waves.
