The thing is with big name surf spots, it makes no difference how good a break can be if there is no swell, and that's what we got. Yes, our flat spell was continuing. Mick was especially shattered as he had lugged a brand new board half way round the world to watch the Atlantic Ocean become a lake
While we were staying at Mundaka we made friends with the couple camped across from us. Martin, a pom and his Spanish partner, Mercedes and their beautiful daughter India. They were cruising the coast in a 1970 VW. They had travelled in it in California and loved it so much they imported to the UK. Martin was also good enough to lend me a surfing guide to Europe, a fairly expensive book, and said to just post it back when we were finished with it. Cool people in a cool Kombi.
Thursday morning Mick and OJ left for Madrid where OJ's fiancÚ was finishing Uni later that day. So we were alone again for the first time since South Africa. Strange feeling. Time to give the liver a rest anyway after the last weeks. We didn't have a specific plan for where we were headed for today, and would have stayed at Bakio where we had lunch, except there was no camping ground there, so we continued on to Sopelana, not far north from Bilbao. Sopelana wasn't as nice as we expected, and the campground was fairly average too. We only stayed one night and moved on the next day. Not much else to say really.
