Cantabria is one of Europe’s best-kept surfing secrets. The lush, green foothills of the Picos de Europa slope down to huge golden beaches. The prevailing winds, Atlantic swells and Biscay’s enormous depth, combine to produce quality beach and point breaks. Conditions are pretty consistent for surfing most of the year (Spring and Autumn are considered best). A variety of surrounding beaches offer distinct characteristics, all within easy reach. Dec./Jan./Feb/March are cold, while April to October is warm/temperate.
There are a wide variety of beaches nearby. There are huge stretches of easily acessible waves for beginners and experts; equally accessible, but more testing coves; alternate along the coast to take into consideration changes in wind direction. The unique combination of its geographical position (micro-climate) and the Atlantic weather pattern, create regular swells. The immense depth of the Bay of Biscay means the quality of surf breaks is consistent. It’s an all year round surf destination (best in autumn and spring). The rolling backdrop of the Picos de Europa, the low cost of living (compared to San Sebastian or Biarritz), the excellent seafood, chorizos, cheeses and wines and the close proximty to Santander which is an elegant small city with a sub culture of surfing.
Loredo itself is a very quiet town with a lot of locals and suits those looking for a quite relaxing holiday. It does get busy in the peak of the summer months. Bi-lingual Surf Coach and Beach Lifeguard, Damian Freeman, runs surf guiding and teaching operation from the small sea side town of Loredo. He has lived here for 30 years and knows the surrounding coast like the back of his hand!! Fully licensed under F.C.S and the Cantabrian Ministry of Tourism regulations, LaCurva Surf School includes a wide selection of board and wetsuit hire. More importantly, Damian (and his co-horts) are all year surfers with many years of teaching experience and will offer guided trips for the advanced surfers, or expert coaching for beginners. Surfing around Cantabria is on the map for seasoned Euro surf-travellers but is now only being discovered as a brilliant destination to learn to surf.

    It was amazing! Thank you so much for organising everything for us. The surf school staff were great, I have learned a lot 🙂 Damian who looked after me is the same age as me, he is a fab instructor. He knew exactly what he was doing each day of training me, and we made a great progress. I really want to go back to that beach!
    I receive lovely e-mail alerts and advice from Perfect Wave. I am now your dedicated client, and will book again. Hopefully soon.
