Playa de Barrika in Pais Vasco is a sheltered reef break that has unreliable waves. Summer offers the best conditions for surfing. Offshore winds blow from the east northeast. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the northwest. Best around high tide. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water. The water quality here is rather suspect.
