The heat and the summer holidays are approaching, and what better way to enjoy a few days off than with a surf trip with friends.
From Flysurfalong with our friends from The Feather Van, we propose several ideas of surftrips suitable for all levels.
Surftrip through Spain: Chapter 2: Asturias - 1 week
In this chapter of surftrips for all levels, we show you a perfect route through Asturias, with which to tour the entire province and enjoy good waves between fabada and fabada. We propose a tour from East to West, passing through some of the most emblematic sites of the Asturian coast.
As we always say, surfing is 100% linked to sea conditions. So if you can, try to review the part before leaving. If you have doubts about how to review a wave report, take a look at our entrance from the blog where we talked about this. Let's start!
Begin your tour of the Llanes area, a coastal area located at the foot of the Picos de Europa. Here you will find beaches such as San Antolín, a beach facing Northwest that can be surfed both at high and low tide and holds a lot of sea. In good conditions, very funny waves come out!
Continue your way visiting the photogenic Ribadesella and its beach: Santa Marina. Urban beach that points to the Northeast, making it a good option for days with W winds. It withstands a lot of sea and several peaks are formed, although you will always find people in the water, especially in summer.
The next destination is Vega beach, a large and open beach heading northwest, which makes it safe to catch waves. Several peaks appear depending on the tide, which offers good alternatives to choose from.
If you want to learn about the tradition of surfing in Asturias, you cannot forget to go to Rodiles, one of the best beaches in northern Spain for surfing. The beach is located in a natural reserve of great beauty and offers different possibilities. However, we must be very aware of choosing a peak according to our level, since the conditions near the estuary are demanding.
If taking advantage of the trip through Asturias, you want to take the opportunity to visit Gijón, you can catch waves at San Lorenzo Beach. Urban and busy beach, one of the largest in Asturias with 1,5 km in length. When the sea enters, various peaks are formed along the beach that usually work at all tides.
The next stop is near Avilés, and it is Salinas beach. Oriented to the Northwest, it is one of the beaches that collects the most sea in the entire Province, so it will always be a good option in small conditions. It is a place very frequented by longboarders and perfect for our Cold Hawaii, with which to practice your first hang ten. Being a large beach, you can find everything along the route. There are plenty of right and left peaks, and on the Espartal side, to the west, there is a very good right-hand bar. It surfs from 2 to 12 feet. Holds a lot of sea. It is usually crowded with surfers, as it is close to centers with a large population.
Finally, we recommend you end your trip in the western part of Asturias, where you can enjoy exuberant nature and wonderful tranquility. Frexulfe beach is a clear example of this. A huge beach that, like most of the best breakers in Asturias, is oriented to the Northwest. This place can work at all tides, although the best time is mid-tide, where you will find numerous peaks to enjoy this paradise.
With this route, you will be able to enjoy waves along the entire Asturian coastline while you travel through the province from one extreme to the other. That being said, don't forget that the best part of a surftrip is getting lost in search of new waves to discover. So visit our entry how to locate waves on google maps and go on an adventure!
