Beach Barceloneta (Photo 16 of 18)
Windsurfing is popular here in Barcelona. You will also see Kite surfing and if you're lucky the odd surfer. Why do I say if you're lucky? Because there is hardly any natural surf here in Barcelona. You can get some good waves when there is a storm brewing but most of the time the sea is as flat as a pancake. But this does not deter many a dedicated surfer. If you ask a surfer devotee why are they sitting on the beach waiting for a wave to appear they say "some people spend their whole lives waiting for nothing, at least we are waiting for
something we want" - And you know, I can't find an answer to that because they are so right.
