Santander is a famous surf spot. You’ll learn about waves – quite literally speaking.
In Santander, the Environmental Hydraulics Institute (IH Cantabria) is specialised in everything related to water. The lab is like a tiny ocean within a building. There, they create natural circumstances to do research on issues such as erosion, drought, storm pattern changes and the rise in sea level. Their main goals? Saving lives and protecting nature. Good goals!
But there is only one way to really understand the power of waves: taking surf lessons! After having travelled along the ocean for so long, we wanted to feel the salty water and the power of waves. We enjoyed a lot our bring-your-swimsuits-surprise. Try it out!
