What it is

The Basque coast, otherwise known as the Mecca of surfing in Europe. The Basque Country with unrivalled coastline 200km in length, is an important surfing hub and a European and global centre of surfing activity. It hosts some fifty surfing championships and world-class international events. The waves and conditions on the beach vary with the different areas however Aritz Aranburu will take you to private beaches promising the best waves without the crowds. For example, the small coastal town of Mundaka promises magnificent left-hand waves, considered the best across European coasts and ranks within the top ten of the best left waves worldwide. Mundaka?s long, tubular waves that can rise up to 5m form a consistent sandbar. This area is best in the winter months; when the ideal swell, winds and tides meet, even if only for a short time, it can be really impressive.
