During this surf camp, you will be accommodated in a dorm accommodation which can accommodate a maximum of 8 persons in a room.

The surf house doors are open to all levels of surfers. Never touched a surfboard in your life? The surf instructors will have you on your feet and high riving your mates in no time. On the other hand if you are already a shredder, the instructors will be able to advise you on the best breaks, hook you up with a board if you need it and make sure you get shacked before your afternoon siesta. Surf lessons are taken at local, beginner friendly beach, Zarautz, with transport to and from the surf house on San Sebastian Surf Camp’s own bus.

Typical day in the basque paradise

  • Morning yoga class or group hike (optional)
  • 08:00 Breakfast
  • 10:00 Surf lesson
  • Lunch
  • Afternoon: The Basque Country is your oyster every afternoon. If you feel like testing out your new skills on your own, head back down the beach for another surf. If you feel like relaxing, head to the beer tap and take in the view. You can also get involved in any one of the awesome activities in the area like wine tasting, horse riding, paragliding, brewery tours, pintos tours, and hiking.
  • Dinner
  • Evenings : If you’re not all surfed out, this surf camp offers weekly part rights and pintos tours in San Sebastian city where you can explore all the best pinxtos places, bars, and some other must-visited places in the city. As a result, you can save yourself the trolling on Tipadvisor and feel confident you’ve fully experienced the best of what San Sebastian has to offer. If you are feeling more chilled vibe, stay in and watch a movie with San Sebastian Surf Camp, do a sunset yoga class, or just chat with other travelers over a traditional Basque sidra.

The camp is located in the town of Aia in the hills just behind the surf beach of Zarautz. The location provides the best of both worlds with close proximity to beautiful San Sebastian town and the beach with the freedom to retreat to our surf house in the hills for some peace and quiet as well. The home is just a short deviation from the beaten track, only 20 minutes from the hustle and bustle of San Sebastian city and easily accessible by train or San Sebastian Surf Camp’s private daily shuttle.

    Dirty location, bad equipmet even worst instructors

    CONS Cons: The place is 20 km far from the beach. The hostel/surf house is incredible dirty and in bad shape. The equipment we were given was broken or missing some parts, not to mention the wet suits that were not enough for all the people staying at the camp. Furthermore they only give you pasta to eat all the time. The vans they use to move you to the beach are in really bad shape and the drive as crazy down the mountain. But even worst, thinking the classes would at least be ok, they weren't. The camp doesn't have a permit to teach surf, so when the life guard came and told the instructors we had to stop and we were all pulled out of the water. On the following days they didn't gave us any lessons just the equipment and we had to do everything on our own since they couldn't get into the water...

    PROS Pros: The party was the only good thing.

    Organizer response: I'm sorry to hear that you felt that way. It was unfortunate that there was some confusion on the beach during your surf lesson. We have a permit to teach at the beach, however the surf instructors didn't carry paperwork on them to the lesson as they havn't needed to ever before. The issue was rectified within a day and we even ran another surf lesson to make sure everyone had adequate surf. We have been teaching surf lessons at Zarautz beach for the past 11 years. We're sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your stay. We will take your criticism on board.

    CONS Cons: There was a small issues with very dirty cars and another that we had payed 30€ for beer and sangria for three days, which I thought was not worth 10€. Also some other fixed activities like hiking or yoga with a specific time during the day would have kept us engaged in the routine just as the 10clock surf bell.

    PROS Pros: The friendly nature, the feeling of not being treated as a customer but being part of a surfing gang and being able to share that first experience with other first timers who hot the waves. A wonderful experience and a marvelous memory to treasure
