tarifa..good place to surf?

Is Tarifa the best place on the west coast to have any chance of surfing in July? We are travelling with 2 teenagers from seville(2 days) to belamedina (7 days)..with a chance for 1 day after seville on the coast somewhere between the 2...they are keen to surf if possible..

I am not a surfer but Tarifa is one of Europe's favourite places for young people to go for wind surfing with kites as well as sail especially kites. Just google it. Do not think actual board surfing is popular here. But anywhere along the Atlantic coast is nice with beautiful beaches and if the surf is up then many locations in summer.

Thanks...I see you are from Cadiz...is Cadiz prettier than tarifa...we only have 1 night to spend on that coast....maybe we could stay in cadiz if it is nice and then drive along the coast to try and find a surf outlet...if the surf is up...instead of going to tarifa...

Am not in Cadiz but visit Cadiz Province a lot and know the area pretty well. As you are driving down then surely try to see Cadiz especially old city but may be easier to drive directly to a place like Conil which is near to El Palmar which is a usually popular place for boards.

Surfing in Tarifa, suitable part of the urban beach near the lighthouse. Here's the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QeiyOy3bzUg, more details http://djanga.ru/2013/08/tarifa/ In general, this place was chosen kitesurfers.

I am from Australia, so my definition of "surfing" may be different, but if your kids want to surf using surfboards, not kites or windsurfers, then I don't think it's going to happen around this area. When we were there, there was no break anywhere along the coast, although this may not always be the case. If it's kite, or windsurfing you are interested in then this whole coast is great.
