Location

Oyambre Surf is located in the heart of the natural park, on the west coast of the Community of Cantabria, one of the most beautiful and less crowded on the north coast of Spain. Oyambre is 55 kilometers from Santander, 40 kilometers from the Picos de Europa, three kilometers from Comillas and five kilometers from San Vicente de la Barquera. Oyambre Surf School is 20 meters from the beach, opposite the beach car park and next to the entrance of Oyambre Beach Campsite.

Oyambre Natural Park

Oyambre Natural Park is a paradise and an oasis in northern Spain. The location is quiet, semi-virgin, and away from the crowds of cities and crowded tourist towns. It’s a place to live in direct contact with nature. It's a paradise where you can surf in addition to sightseeing, enjoying nature, gastronomy, other sports, relaxing and exploring nearby villages. Oyambre was declared a natural park in 1988 for its great ecological value, beauty, and condition. There are a variety of fauna and flora, both terrestrial and marine ecosystems and different dunes, beaches, marshes, cliffs, and forests.

Waves

From Oyambre Surf School's privileged position, they always look for the best waves depending on the sea conditions, the weather, and the level of their students. They usually surf on the beaches of Oyambre and San Vicente de la Barquera (Merón), but don’t discount surprise trips to other lesser known surf spots. Both beaches are very exposed to waves and have a small difference in orientations that ensures waves all year. If there are no waves here, there won’t be any waves on any beach in northern Spain or Europe.
