Now and again you get the question if surfing is possible on
Mallorca. Tha answer is yes
and no. After stormy weather, you get some shore break, and at
places where it builds up, you will se some local persons with
their board. The photo is taken at Sa Rapita, just next to the
Club Nautico. The month is June. A rare summer storm created some
good conditions. Normally you have to wait until spring or autumn
to get the right weather conditions. It is a question of
being there at the right time, somewhat difficult for the visitor
to the island. So if you are a keen surfer, there are a lot better
places to go.
In Paguera, on Tora beach you will find some
surfers when conditions are right. Also Cala Mayor beach.
