After breakfast and goodbyes with the Swiss, Steve and I head separately towards Gijon, looking for un-crowded waves. I drive straight to Playa de Xago, stopping at a smaller beach further north first. Playa de Xago is blown out and the waves are massive. I spend a few hours there before heading further west, along the coast towards Santa Maria del Mar. When I get to Santa Maria I realise that I have been there before. I check the beaches, but the surf is too small. I decide to head back on myself, and stop overnight in a large car park I have seen, that had lots of trucks parked in.
I get to the car park and pull up in the back. I manage to get a WiFi signal and check the surf forecast. The swell is dropping greatly today and tomorrow. I decide to head back to Playa de Xago, wait for the swell to drop and try to meet up with Steve.
I get back to the beach and park up. A little while after Steve arrives. We setup camp and drink beers.
