Surfing is a growing sport with an estimated 10 million surfers currently scattered throughout the globe, many of them, in search of waves. Every year that number grows by a million and a half. Its no wonder therefore that surf travel generates approximately 10 million Euros a year.
Last year, 5000 learner surfers came through the various surf schools in Ribamontán al Mar. As part of the council of Ribamontán al Mar, the villages of Loredo and Somo are amongst the most popular surf destinations in Spain.
Ribamontáns surf initiative is supported by the Ministries of Industry, Tourism and Commerce of the Spanish Government, and the departments of Culture, Tourism and Sport of the Cantabrian Government and the local council of Ribamontán al Mar.
