More on Santander (El Sardinero)
Located in Cantabria, Spain, Santader (El Sardinero) is not a bad beach break that offers some easy-going sections for longboarding or beginners. These waves are pretty easy to surf and break for up to 50 meters over a sand bottom. This break faces East, so it needs a big NW swell to break, usually nice and sheltered with soft waves. This spot is right in the city of Santander, which can lead to crowds.
