About Santa Marina

World-class righthand reefbreak, breaking off the island of Santa Marina. Freight-train walls and barrel sections. Works from about 5 foot upwards. Best on the rare combination of a large swell and a E or NE wind, usually only a few times a year. OK on all tides but dangerous rocks in front of take-off at low tide.

Aggressive local crew. No facilities here, although campsites nearby and fairly close to village of Loredo. Parking on the street, can be difficult when the wave is on. Possible car crime. Some pollution from nearby Santander.
