Stretched along the eastern shore of the tempestuous North Atlantic Ocean, continental Europe presents a cornucopia of wave resources for the maturing surf cultures of the ‘Old World’. This sublime continent has the ability to entertain the sweetest, small beachbreaks right alongside the meanest, mountainous reefbreaks, while new discoveries continue to raise Europe’s profile and increase its inventory of world-class waves. Surf activists are looking to the next generation to carry on the fight to protect the ocean environment along this populated coastline. Meanwhile, surfer numbers are exploding from Iceland to Italy and beyond, as surfing comes of age on the European Continent.
