Somo, Hawai reaches Cantabria

 

To catch the perfect wave, the trick lies in waiting, in rowing while the wave comes in. The sea provides. The wind and the breeze give the balance. Just you, Somo and the sea foam. The Mecca of surfing in Cantabria.
 
There is a Hawai in Spain. Somo, a village of Ribamontán al Mar (Cantabria), has become a reference for wave riders from Spain and elsewhere. This beach of the Ribamontán del Sur (Cantabria) region has earned its fame for crests. Every year, hundreds of surfers come to this small coastal village to face a Cantábrico sea that was thought indomitable. 
 
The no more than 2,000 people who live in the place have learnt to live with the tide; not the tide they already have, but that of bead necklaces, neoprene suits and flowery bathers. The same tide that each year fills its famous bridge, its kilometres of beaches and the esplanade. The place has adapted and now the streets of Somo, instead of shops with nets and bait, are now filled with surfing schools and premises offering from wax for boards to any trinket related to mastering the waves. 
 
Foreigners come as pilgrims. It’s a surfer’s baptism to place your feet on this sea’s foam. Here the waves do not come in, they rise. The water does not fight with you if you don’t go looking for it. You have to face it. Challenging. The trick is to wait. When the ocean decides to chase you, row. Pull your arms against the wave until you feel you don’t have to drive any more. The sea provides. Feel yourself a load easy to drag, and then catch the moment, right then; the wind, the breeze, the balance. Just you, Somo and the sea foam.
