Cantabria is an historical region and one of the greenest areas of the North of Spain with a lush vegetation, and a climate strongly influenced by the Atlantic Ocean. Santander, its Capital, is a dynamic city offering many cultural attractions, restaurants, bars and many entertainment options.
Apart from its cultural side, Santander is also a sun & sea destination, especially during the summer months when the good weather calls everyone down to the beach. Just like once pilgrims did on their way to Santiago de Compostela, now surfers are the new pilgrims that travel to the Cantabria's region searching for every surf spot. And like on any other pilgrimage, every effort or sacrifice has its rewards!

The Cantabria region, in the North of Spain, is considered a swell magnet due to its north westerly orientation, especially between San Vicente de la Barquera and Galizano.
On the east side of Galizano, in Laredo, you will find a pristine seashore and countryside area but with less swell as it is protected by a small stretch of land between Noja and Santander. Near San Vicente de la Barquera, there's the Liencres Natural Park with a very cool atmosphere and the region's longest stretch of sand and consistent high quality beach-breaks. So guess where is Somo? Yes...Somo is right in the middle of it all!
This region is therefore famous for its diversity of surf spots. The surf house and surf school is ideally located right in front of Somo's beach and close to many of these secret surf spots which you can get to know with our surfari packages.
The school instructors and local guides are among the most experienced in Spain and know exactly what kind of waves you are fitted to surf or that will impress you. The surf school gives 2 surf sessions per day normally in Somo beach but surf spots may change according to natural conditions of each day.
In Cantabria you can surf from easy long waves to hollow tubes. The most famous surf spots around are the Island of Santa Marina, an heavy wave that breaks over a reef, El Brusco a beach break that with the right swell makes hollow tube rides, El Muro a left hander point break good for practicing perfection, Suances, Laredo and Somo, a beach break ideal for beginners but that can also get nasty sometimes!
