The 3 best spots to surf big waves in the Basque country.

  • Punta Galea

Located under the Galea cliff, in Getxo, it can offer waves of up to 6 meters. In Punta Galea, the Punta Galea Challenge event, the world championship of big waves, has been held since 2006, which usually has the participation of the best big riders in the world.

24 competitors participate, by invitation, in four heats of six, semifinals and final. Surfers compete in 50-minute heats, and only three of six go to the next round.

As it is an event that depends on the appropriate weather conditions, the waiting time is from November to March.

As a distinctive feature, indicate that it is a long wave on the right, which can break anywhere in the bay. Indicate that the presence of rocks makes it unsuitable for inexperienced surfers.

  • Meñakoz

Located between Sopelana and Barrika, it is a large and powerful right hand that breaks between a cliff and rocks, accentuating its danger. This wave can hold sessions of up to 7 meters. A true sanctuary for lovers of big wave surfing.

  • Roka Puta

Spot with an aggressive name located on the road that connects Getaria and Zumaia, a right that lives up to its name, with great force that can reach several meters in height. It is a very popular spot for surfers from Zarautz.
