Mediterranean Surf on the Spanish Coast?« on: September 15 2005 12:09:00 »
I will be vacationing in Spain and am looking for Beginner to intermediate surfing, preferably a school within a few hours north or south of Barcelona. Is there anything? Or on the island of Mallorca or Ibiza?

theres no surf in the mediterranean, its too protected from swell as far as i know. go up to pais vasco, out to galicia, or down to cadiz.

There is of course surf, if there is a swell. I live in Denia and just on Sunday last there was a two footer to be shared. Other places around here will be Javea, Calpe and Moraira.
The main ingredient will be a mediterranian swell!
Have fun, see you in the green room

If I was to find myself with three monts free from 02.2.2006 t0 31.3.2006 and I wanted to enjoy sun sea and sand and travel down to Spain in a camper van would how many days would there be likely to be a swell along the Med coast where a beginner surfer might get some surf.

Go to the Atlantic!
Its not that far away and has good waves at that time.
Ive seen ok med wave photos of surf but as I say Atlantic is the place.

The Med coast is a bit like the south coast in the UK, chance of surf during winter months but generally flat all summer. I'm planning on heading down to the Andalucia region for mild spring weather and surf (mostly flat in summer) via South of France, northern Spain and western Portugal which will mean plenty of waves. Forget the med...it will be disappointing. Sure we can all find waves when we live somewhere...they even surf on Lake Ontario in Canada...but it will most likely suck when travelling through.

HEY mate, just to say dont listen to any false reports of no surf in south of spain, ive been there 3 times, diffirent spots and found fun 2_4 ft waves and not crowded. The coast line is covered with reef and piont, so all it needs is a little wind or swell. Good luck. Summer and winter.

There is basicly no surf on the Spanish mediterrean coast. Couple weeks per month theres big enough storms in northern atlantic to push water trough the cibraltar. That creates surfable waves on italian west coast, sicily and Sardinia and sometimes on French riviera. Chance for surfable waves on spain is pretty much zero.
