The north coast of Galicia is a paradise for those in search of waves. The area draws surfers from all over the World, particularly in late summer and autumn when the water is at its warmest and the Atlantic swells at their most regular. There are several excellent surf beaches but the most famous of all is undoubtedly that at Pantín (10 minute drive from our accommodation in Cedeira), which is home to an event in the World Series each September, The Pantín Classic.

Dos Xtremos recommends... the surf school at Pantín, Pantín Surf Camp (see link below), which provides classes and board hire. The main season for group classes runs from mid-June through to mid-September, although classes can be arranged outside this period
