RE: barcelona surf

there aren´t good waves in Barcelona, but some days there are some waves.
this year will be a bad year to Barcelona, because the politicians are going to built some "espigones" (i don´t know to say in english). there "espigones" are to conserve the beach to action of waves. i think that the construction begins in 2007, i´m not very sure.

Hey I just got to Barcelona and will be studying here for a year. Could you let me know where these surf spots are around the city? I'm heading to San Sebastian this weekend to surf, but will be back Sunday night. I'd love to meet up for a drink and an introduction to some spots around here.  

Cheers

Try the area of Mataro which can be reached driving the Gran Via once there ask the people; you drive basically all the time alongside the seaside so all quite easy; spot is also described in the stormrider guide Cheers

RE: barcelona surf

I am also studying in Barcelona for a year. I have surfed all my life and notices a bunch of people out on the beach in Barcelona, I completely freaked out, but I noticed that the waves they were surfing were really small, hardly a wave at all. What I need to know is where are the best spots, and if it ever gets any size to it.

Hi, I lived in Barcelona for a while and the best spots (if you can call them that) that I found were Montgat to the north of town and port Ginesta just a bit south of Castelldefels. Nearest train station is Casteldefels Platja

RE: barcelona surf

Dunno where to rent a board....try DRAK near the port. Get the train from placa catalunya, but make sure to get the right one or you'll end up in France!
