When is the best time to surf in Cantabria

Best time to go

The best time to surf in Cantabria is through the autumn to winter months. Compared to the Basque Country, the landscape is less abrupt, giving you a smaller number of quality reef breaks. The beach breaks on the other hand are of great quality and completely make up for this. The big winter swells are therefore too strong for this landscape, and makes surfers appreciate the small to medium swells more in this area.
