Surfing - Recommendations?

Hi all,

I've done some internet scouring and there doesn't seem to be easy-to-find info. I've heard there is some decent surfing along the coast in various spots. Can anyone point me to info on finding out a) easiest / best to get to from Beirut and b) ways to find board rentals?

We're considering a June vacation to Jordan & Lebanon and would love to include surfing as part of it.

Thanks in advance!

Best spot to surf in Lebanon is off the cost of Batroun and south of Beirut.

Best time to surf June - July and September - October.

Thanks Gaby85! Do you know of any places in either of those locations to rent boards? I'm having a hard time finding out information (are there any hotels, surf camps, etc. that cater to surfers coming)? We would not be bringing our own boards.

We are thinking of coming in June so it's perfect timing.

Thanks!
