Board to bring? - Hey all,
I'm about to attend USC en España, and I'm going to be there for about 9 months. I love surfing & playing futbol! I have 3 different boards at my house now, but I cannot bring them all over because i do not have the money to fly them over to Spain due to bullshit surfboard expenses that the airlines put on us. I have a POD, Shortboard... Which one do you recommend me bringing for the Waves in the Cantabria region? Gracias a todos!

stop worrying bout the locals - I stayed at this spot back in 1997 and the locals were cool go there with the right attitude in and out of the water and you will love it and try the rabas at the cafe, wait for your rides and if your a beginner don't go out when it's big the rip can take you into the rocks on the left

kooks - I´ve been surfing liencres for years now and never had any trouble what so ever! I live near by but am not a "local" as in any break you visit you have to respect the people and the beach, don´t go around snaking or thinking your the s**t, just chill out and i´m sure you won´t have any problems. One last point though if you are learning or just born a KOOK don´t go and teabag in the best part of the line up with the other 50 guys who can actually rip it and get in their way.
