Some of the today’s  best surfing beaches can be found in Spain, France and Portugal. There are even fantastic spots to surf in the UK, Denmark & Norway!

My personal favourite source to find the best surfing locations where you won’t have to travel far to get to is http://www.surfing-waves.com/atlas/europe.html

This website features a convenient and easy map can see all the great surfing spots in one place. When you zoom in a particular location, such as for example Galúa in the south-east of Spain you can get a whole bunch of helpful information such as the wave quality, wave direction, what type beach it is (sand or rock etc.) and most importantly their location’s difficulty rating. Obviously you don’t want to go surfing on a difficult beach if you are just starting out with wind surfing!

So if you’re looking for the best waves I highly recommended you check out this website!
