Discover the Basque Country

  1. Hi people,

    At first I have to say that English is not my first languaje so I apologize for any fault while writing this post.

    I am a bodyboarder from the Basque Country, and in September I'm living in Belfast for one year more or less (that's the reason I registered in this forum:)).

    Our flag in the beatiuful cliffs of somewhere Ireland :)

    The aim of this post is showing my country and its waves to you. I think that it's an unknown place for many people, and there are world-class waves very near to you (less than 2h by plane London-Bilbao). Water temperature goes from 12º in February to 21º in August, and the best swells are in the period between October-March.

    So I will try to show you some of the waves that we have and some great places. :cool:

    LA CENTRAL

    Our best wave for bodyboarders. Very powerful and dangerous reef slab.

    The best lefty wave in Europe. Awesome and heavy barrels. It's a dangerous wave due to its power, I do not recommend to newbies.

    Great pics there. are you working for the Spanish tourist board ?

    We have a lady in our building who's from Northern Spain and highly rates this area for surf. Pic's she has shown us are tempting.
