Having lived in Europe for several years, I have got to know her quite well. After I moved back to California over a decade ago I have been back every years since to revisit my old stopping grounds. There is so much good surf, not to mention the cultural experiences you get to have on the old continent. Check out my article on France, the surf there will blow you away.
Ds Travel Tips
Fly into one of the major cities and spend a few days before or after your surf trip soaking up the culture.
