not the same as it was - I thought i leave it a while to follow on from my previous post about sand being dumped at el palmar and the damage done to the break.. a full season in fact.

el palmar no longer works well through the tide and has lost a lot of its consistency and shape for smaller swells.

the sand that was dumped is a courser grain so it has piled up along the shore making the smaller waves surge and close out as a shore dump. also there was some unforseen consiquence of trying to fill in the rocky sea bed by dumping sand.

it seems that the erosion has greatly increased and never have i seen so many rocks exposed, some dangerously so. this has also affected the quality of the wave with less sund under the break than ever.

hope in time that all this sand brough from offshore gets washed away and el palmar returns to what it was before man decided to try and "improve" the beach for summer tourism.

all that said there were still some epic days this winter. when its on its still hossegeor without the hassle.

just not as often anymore.

Surfboard rental in El Palmar / Conil - Hello, I will be in El Palmar the second week in November and will need to rent a surfboard. Can anybody recommend some surfshop or surfschool where to rent a board? Unfortunately the guys from winterwaves.com told me, they will be closed during that time.

Many thanks in advance!

el palmar - great set up-but doesn't get a huge amount of swell consistently. Also, loads of van people on their big OE learning to surf. Now don't call me a snob, but when I leave on a trip, I like to get away from crowds of German long boarders and Spanish boogie boarders. So unless its pumping, you can be in Portugal in a day, and Morocco too. If you like tuna, you will love this place, its the best tasting tuna in the world...
