Spain Beach Break Surf Spots
Beach Break Surf Spots
In the south of Spain, the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea converge. Together with the north coast and the Canary Islands, this region is among the greatest in Spain for surfing due to the combination of factors and the local winds.
Areas in the ocean where the waves break over a sandy bottom are known as beach breaks. The waves at beach breaks are constantly changing because the sand is often shifting because of tides, currents, and storms. You can be surfing flawless peeling lefts one day and close-out waves the next at the same surf spot. The surf break could be in one location one day and 200 yards along the shoreline the next. The constantly shifting bottom produces a very unpredictable and dynamic surf break. Because they have a softer and safer bottom than reef breaks, beach breaks are excellent places for beginning surfers to practice.
