San Sebastian, our slice of paradise…
This is a guide itinerary with everything in the all inclusive package. But the beauty of staying at the Surf camp is that you can do whatever you like, whenever you like, your way.
Wake up to a delicious cooked breakfast whether it be pancakes, bacon and eggs or a ham & cheese omelette. Head to the beach to wash away the headaches (and mistakes) of the night before. A couple of hours of surfing, (with instructors of course) relaxing, soaking up the sun and playing beach games.
Once we’ve built up enough of an appetite, it’s back to the Surf House to fill up on a tasty lunch prepared by our in-house chef and maybe, just maybe, brave that first icy cold beer of the day.
There are tonnes of different activities in the surrounding region to keep everyone occupied. We can head into San Sebastian to its famous pintxos bars, go on free walking tours, go horse riding, paragliding, on wine tasting tours or simply head to the beach for more surfing, or enjoy the sunshine from our terrace in all its glory.
Finish your afternoon activities with a cider on the hill, watching the sunset and then enjoy a big hearty dinner to line the stomach.
Day time activities:
Surfing, volleyball, skateboarding, exploring the town, swimming, sun baking, hiking, cliff jumping, drinking beer, and much more.
Night time activities:
Party nights in San Sebastian, movie nights, dinners in our favourite restaurants in the area and visiting the many festivals that dot the region in summer.

Hola folks! Questions? Ask away in the Ask a Question tab and we will answer right here…
So what should we bring?
Beachwear, something to party in, something warm for the night times, a towel, sunscreen and your camera!
Can I come and have a beer if I’m under 18?
Unfortunately our drinking age is 18 for the Stoke Surfari, wait a few years brother.
What will the surf be like?
We are no water gods and cannot predict the swell, however we will seek out the best breaks for all different levels in the crew.
Do I need to be a gnarly shredder to come on the trip?
Not at all! You can literally come on the tour if you have never set foot on a surfboard, but you probably want to be able to swim. We have super rad instructors who will choose the appropriate board and wave for you, start to finish.
