About Rodiles

Rodiles has a small beach, eucalyptus tree lined with a rivermouth nestling at the westerly end. The sandbank at the mouth of the river forms at a perfect angle and when hit by a northwest swell produces waves often likened to a mini-Mundaka. Same high-quality rides, long walls and cover-ups but without the leg cramping length of its Basque cousin.

Rodiles is probably the best-known break in Asturias and as such is a big draw. The scenery is stunning and the surrounding countryside is a lush and green. The similarities between Mundaka and Rodiles do not end with their physical characteristics. Visiting surfers aren't particularly welcomed but anything more than the odd drop in is pretty rare. Busy days, i.e. any good day, will see the small take-off zone bustling and hustling for each set wave. Best tip is to get there early to beat the crowds. Also watch for car crime.
