But where can we surf in December!

03 November 2021 | Good plans

While the whole of France and Navarre is preparing their Christmas lists, we surfers are wondering where we can go surfing during December? Not that we don't like the idea of feeling the sensation at the tip of our toes while sticking our feet in the car heater, but we also like to prolong the pleasure of nice surfing sessions without risking the tab at each outing ????

Going surfing in December in France?

If you like to freeze in 15° water, why not, but almost all surfcamps and surf schools are closed (the teachers have left to surf warmer waters...)


Is it possible to surf in Spain in December?

Certainly, but once again you need to be highly motivated and this will be reserved for experienced surfers who will also prefer to turn to other warmer oceans.

I've been told that it's surfing in Portugal in December?

So yes, it's possible, but in the Sagres / Farowhich is located at the southern tip of the country. But beware, the days are short, the temperature remains cool and we can receive some good lows from the North which will smash the water.

Forget Europe for a surfing trip in December? Not necessarily!

The best way to get good swells and good weather in December is to go surfing on the Canaries. Whether on Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, Tenerife, Las Palmas, Gran Canaria... All the islands will be able to satisfy your desire to surf in winter without a wetsuit, it will just be necessary to calculate well according to the plane ticket and the airport of departure (that can vary from simple to triple according to the chosen island)

So where to go surfing in December? The best option for winter: Morocco!

No need to break the piggy bank to find incredible waves! surf spots with very different characteristics ! From Banana Beach for starters and catch his first waves and pass by Devil rocks for the first glide and finally send everything to Boliers Morocco is undoubtedly the best surfing destination in December for all levels ????♂️ !

In addition to surfing, it's nice to have the option of SPA, desert or Paradise Valley excursions or yoga classes. Note also that almost all the offers are full board, we know the best cooks in the region and you will enjoy Tajines and other Moroccan specialties.

For those of us who take surfing as a pretext to travel far away ( if you have been burned ! ) we will find our happiness in Latin America, Costa Rica, Panama, Nicaragua are great destinations for surfing in December.

Costa Rica: Latin America's richest country has a well-stocked surfcamp offer now, and we can find something for every taste. The best surfcamps in Costa Rica

For surf-trips to the roots prefer places such as Tamarindo ( for the fiesta ) or Pavones for the authenticity of the spot and the endless left

To prepare a stay family surfing in Costa Rica Santa Teresa is the surf town par excellence. You'll find quality accommodation suitable for families, the town centre is well designed and there's no shortage of anything in 2021. Another nice choice is the city of Dominical, which has taken a more standing turn since the Panam links it to the capital San Jose in less than 4 hours.

In Nicaragua we go to the Popoyo area. It's still wild with lots of space for surfing. You can also combine a trek to the Ometepe volcano located in the middle of the huge Nicaragua lake (third biggest lake in Latin America after the Titicaca lake and the Maracaibo lake) for a day or two to rest your arms!
