Like patio's and beer, surfing and travel go hand in hand. When you are thinking about surf travel, images of sun drenched beaches, palm trees, and crystal clear water pop into your head, or maybe that is just me trying to get away from head to toe neoprene! Often overlooked for those tropical hot spots are some real gems across Europe that are definitely worth some time exploring and figuring out.
Surfing in Europe definitely has its own unique vibe. What it may be in lacking in glorious warm water, it more than makes up for it with its quality waves and amazing culture. One of the best surf trips I have ever had was sleeping in the back of a VW Rabbit, cruising up and down the Portuguese coast stopping wherever waves were breaking that day. In a word, it was incredible. Whether you are looking for the killer beach breaks of La Graviere and Supertubos, or want to test your metal battling elements in Ireland and Scotland, there is something for everyone. Really, where else can you be out in the water, looking up at some towering cliffs with a castle watching over you. Pretty spectacular.
The reason for this post was spurred on when I came across an article posted on www.booksurfcamps.com about the 5 best surfing destinations in Europe. It brought back a lot of good memories and if you are looking for a little bit of inspiration for your next surf trip, I highly recommend checking it out.
