It’s surf season in Europe. The ASP World Tour is rolling across the continent from the supertubos of Portugal to the plage breaks of France as a continent of wave-carvers wax down their Protons and get in line for the pipeline. Americans are welcome but hard to find – too busy cruising Central America or soaking up the best sun rays. It’s a damn shame. Serious carvers know that now is the best time to check in to one of Europe’s great surf lodges.

Start with one of these.
