RE: Surf in San Sebastian

Hey folks, I'm an Aussie looking at studying for 6 months in San S. from early Jan to mid July. I was looking for just a bit of an overview of what it's like surf and weather wise.

I live at Bell's beach and surf all thru winter so cold water ain't a problem...is the weather gonna be nice while I'm there: it doesn't get too cold does it?

And when do the best swells come thru, cos I'm missing the Autumn Bell's classic swell to be over there: I want something!

Also, is it possible to just buy a bomb for maybe a thousand euros to use for road trips while I'm there? A lot of questions I know, but it's good to be able to ask fellow surfers!

San Seb

I am thinking about studying in San Seb fall '06, I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the weather is like that time of year: re: wetties? 4'3, 3'2?  Booties, hood?  Also, I've heard its better to buy a board once you get there.... can anyone recommend a good shaper?  How often is it good, and how easy is it to get to the beach with a board?

Hi Sarah,
In fall the weather is still pretty good until november, a 3/2 is enough. Then you'll need a 4/3 and in winter the whole kit.
The beach is right there; you can walk or ride a bike ´til the shore. A good place to get a board and a bike, second hand or new, is the shop KMO. It´s a few streets behind the beach. I wish you good waves!
ciao
