The wave is powerful. It produces hollow tubes and long waves. Looks always smaller than it actually is from the parking lot.

- eeeer, who wrote this? Since when has El Brusco been "empty". This is one of the best and most famous waves in Spain - naturally draws in loads of locals, all the Santander surfers and scores of travelling surfers. Incredible place with great waves, yes, but empty - no way!

Carlos - I was there las Nov for the week after Thanksgiving (USA). I come from Miami Florida. I was very impressed with the whole area from Santander to Santoña. I was lucky, my girlfriend owns a piso <apartment)in Noja. So I didn't have to pay much for any thing except our food. I had a great time. I plan to be back in the summer. This Cantabria has tremendous potential for being a surfing meca.

Bruskete - The best beach break in Spain by far. Hollow tubes!!! overcrowded. Forget weekends. Very bad vibe between sufers from Santander & Bilbao.
