Hey Jonas,
I'm planning on coming to San Seb around the 13th of Oct. for a couple days. I'm travelling around Spain for the month but I want to surf while I'm there...and I heard that the surf's best in the north. It would be nice if I could go surfing with someone. I'd be renting a board...if possible. Let me know if you're interested in surfing with a somewhat beginner. Don't worry I don't expect a surf lesson! Just company would be nice! thanx.

Shit, I am going to have to learn Spanish geography, I thought San Sebastian was inland. I thought Bilbao was on the coast.

I have to get out more often ;;;;;[

I am in San Sebastian right now and will be traveling throughout Spain and Portugal in the next few months. I am in need of a board, hopefully a 6´5" fiberglass or 6´3" epoxy or something in that range. Anyone out there have an old one that they want to sell or know where I could pick one up? I checked the shops in Biarritz, Anglet and San Sebastian, and the pickings are slim right now.

Hey Joe forget about getting a job in San Sebastian especially if you dont speak Spanish or Basque. Unemployment is really high and the wages, if you managed to get a job, are really low compared to the UK. Make your money here and spend it over's a beatiful city and the basques are really cool people.

Hey everybody. I'll be travelling through Spain from mid feb- april. I'd love to get some surfing in if possible, but don't know much as far as good spots go. All I've heard is Northern area, closer to France. I'm fluent in Spanish, so if anyone wants to hook up for 3-5 days and catch some waves, enjoy the nights please respond. Ciao...
