Surfing in Ribamontan al Mar

Surfing pioneers.

Legend has it that Cantabria was the first place ti introduce surfing in Spain. Even though there is probably no proof of this, the region still has a great reputation for watersports, which has rapidly grown in the last few years. Although there are many areas in the region that are perfect for surfing, Somo Beach is probably the best place to do it. This is where you will find the Cantabria School of Surfing (the oldest school in the country), and an enormous beach that spans almost eleven kilometers, with some of the best waves, due to its orography. If you would like to try this sport, you are in the perfect place. There are many schools and rental shops around the beach that will give you all the information you need. At sunset, head to Café Surf on the beach and enjoy the stunning views while you relax after a day on the waves. The atmosphere and location are unrivalled.
