Surf classes in Somo

Surf classes at Somo beach

Cantabria has some of the best surf on the north coast, and unsurprisingly the sport is becoming increasingly popular in the region.  There are now surf schools at all the good surf spots along the Cantabrian coast, with most also providing board, wetsuit and, increasingly, SUP hire.  Some of these are only open at weekends and in summer, others are open all year round.  For general information see the Surf Cantabria website and the post on webcams in Cantabria.

There is also an great leaflet (in English!) produced by the Federación Cantabrá de Surf and Campings de Cantabria which provides all the info you could need about surf schools (although there are many missing, more below), camps, and camp sites near the beach, Surf Camp Cantabria – Surf & Camping Travel Guide (pdf).
