Sorry to say guys the surf there kinda sucks! If you wanna surf around there you would have to drive to areas outside the little point san sebastian sits on. Your best bet like someone mentioned is to go to Biarritz or hossegor in france. Its like an hours train ride north into france. Its one of the most beautiful drives if you get a chance to rent a car.
The main beach in San sebastian is in a cove which is blocked by islands on the outside(which are fun to swim too!!). So stick to the chicks and the partying and save the surfing for a day trip up to france. The nightlife is WOW! all freakin night.
You can always go east along the coast of spain, but those spots are much harder to find.
The sweel starts to pick up in sept. all through the winter. Summers kinda flat.

san sebastian can get pretty good especially for beginners. if you want a board you better buy than rent one. in spain you get good boards with bags and stuff for just about 200E that s really not a lot compared to the money they charge you if you rent one, especially if you plan to stay for a couple of weeks.
the pukas shop isn t too bad but boards there are still about 400E.
you ll need a car though, because if you want a cheap board you ll have to visit the shaper himself and unfortunately they do not live uptown sanseb. ask locals for fullncas or pukas boards.

I´m from san sebastian. This is very good place for surfing. In the city you always have waves sometimes really goods, and in one hour drive you can go surfing to hossegor o mundaka. Between this two spots you can surf in diferent spots for diferents levels.
See you in the water

..unfortunately Im not a lad but will be at lacunza through july until mid august. Im interested in learning to surf well and if the surf at san sebastian is flat then renting a car looks like the best option.

Hi i was surfing in france and Sanseb. last year. Sanseb. can be crowded. So if you are a beginner try other places like Orio its just a 10 min. trip with a car from sanseb. NIce little beach and lovly locals. The beach is just outside of the little fishing village called Orio. Its evev a camp site behind the beach. Its not world famouse waves but nice for weekend surfers. Just remember you are not in Spain but in The Basque country!
But first off all go buy "Stormriders guide too Europe" its a fantastic book if youre going to surf in Europe. You can get in from internett also.

i ll be in san sebastian in july and august for surfing, partying and learning spanish! as you said you live there i wondered if you could tell me how to find accomodation but not in a hotel but in a shared flat or something like that. are there for instance any forums in the internet where people offer accomodation?
thanks a lot

hi guys I'm from Rimini, Italy and I'm planning to go to surf somewhere from 14 and 21 of august. I learnt to surf in New Zealand one years ago but I'm not a very good surfer. I'm looking for someone who wants to enjoy to me. Have a good summer to everyone!!!
