Birthplace of great surfers

Birthplace of great surfers

Zarautz Beach has witnessed the first attempts at surfing the waves of sportsmen who are now important figures in the surfing world, such as Hodei Collazo, Axi Muniain, Aritz Aranburu or Ibon Amatriain. Its characteristics as a beach that is open to the Cantabrian Sea and its waves make the town the ideal place to start out in this sport.

Surfers can enjoy waves of up to 3 metres’ high and the mild temperatures which are maintained throughout the year mean you can surf all year round. If you would like to learn this sport you should know that the town has many surf and bodyboard schools and numerous shops selling specialised material.
