If you want some good waves to learn on a bit closer to barcelona, just cross over to us here in Esposende, Portugal. We are in the north, close to Porto which has good flight connections to Barcelona.
The waves here are perfect to learn in the summer, especially in our nearby spot Viana do castelo. Not too big, flat in between, looooong wave, and a biig bay.
Here in Esposende the sea is a bit more demanding but still not difficult. The good part is that you will be almost alone, most people stay in the flat river.
