Barcelona Surf Festival
According to several experts, the surf had its origins in Hawaii. The oldest surfboard was discovered in 1905, inside a tomb, on the big island of Ko’Okena. But today, surfing is very popular and is a perfect fit in western culture. In Barcelona, a surf event had already been organized. It was the Barcelona Surf Film Festival, but this year they wanted to create an event where surfing enthusiasts could live the experience more fully. Thus, all weekend in Barceloneta, you will have the pleasure of attending concerts and DJ sessions such as Pau Roca or the group Ottoca. You can admire surfers braving the biggest waves and also attend conferences, exhibitions, and creative workshops around surfing. You can also get a sneak preview of the latest trends from the well-known SurfNature and Wetdream surf brands. Of course, you will also be able to attend the screening of surf movies that will present the best surfing sessions through time and surf like a real lifestyle. Feel free to participate in this event with friends, Barcelona is the ideal place because this city brings together the largest community of surfers in the country.
