Surfing in San Sebastián

October 7, 2019

We’ve reached the Atlantic! The pure energy of this unfathomably huge body of water is powering into dreams and I cannot wait to learn to surf her waves this winter. We’re still embracing slow travel, frugal living, & minimalism, so our total spend for a half-day’s surfing for two in San Sebastián is: €3.10 on an all-day carpark ticket, €2.50 on board wax and €1.25 on a loaf of bread. The waves are free! The smiles are free! The beach showers are free. Being pummelled by the ocean into the sand is also free. Yes our wetsuits are old and inexpensive, our one surfboard that we’re sharing is on long-term loan from a friend, but we are surfing (I can’t stand up yet so I’m using ‘surfing’ in its loosest term) in Spain and I couldn’t be happier.
