SAN SEBASTIAN IS EVERY SURFER’S PARADISE

And this is a unique surf camp experience. We stay in a huge converted farmhouse – where we sleep on real beds and use real bathrooms – in the village of Aia, in the hills behind San Sebastian, with views across the rolling hills, farms and forests. You’ll feel like a part of a family when we eat chef-prepared meals together, practice yoga in nature and learn to surf, or improve skills we already have, on the best surfing beach in Spain. From the backyard of the house, just past the skateboard ramp, paths wind their way up the mountain and into the Pagoeta Nature Reserve. From the front our vans take you on a short drive to Zarautz surf beach every day and some nights buses take us in to San Sebastian city centre to try the local pintxos (Basque tapas) and maybe party a little.

On the beach our fun and friendly, qualified surf instructors are there to make sure whatever your level of surfing you’re having the best session possible and are always improving. When the session is done we have lunch on the beach, play beach games or just chill out under the sun. Back at the house we do guided yoga outside, skate the ramp, tell stories around the fire pit, learn Spanish in the local bars or take advantage of our in-house open beer, sangria and sidra bar (for only €10 extra per day).

Your new surf family is made up of open-minded travellers from all over the world, and you’ll love sharing stories and making new best friends. The San Sebastian Surf Camp caters for everybody, from the ultra chilled to the party animals, die-hard surfers and committed sunbakers alike.

The San Sebastian Surf Camp offers a boutique surfing experience in the Basque country, where you won’t only surf all day, but you’ll also eat well, meet new people, explore the local area, practice your yoga and simply enjoy the house, location and the people you’re with.

Stoke Travel Passport holders are eligible for 3 all-inclusive nights (30 euro surcharge)

If our San Sebastian Surf Camp is sold out, we’d recommend checking out our pop up Zarautz beach camp (30 June – 22 July).

San Sebastian is one of those places that’s been touched by magic. That’s why the Stoke Surf House’s doors are open to surfers of all levels and travellers from far and wide, to share this stunning place with the world! Stay at a beautiful house in the heart of Basque Country and start your day with a delicious home-cooked breakfast before our surf instructors take you to a local beach break. If you’re a beginner they’ll get you standing in no time, and if you’re more experienced our guides will show you where to get the best waves. After you’ve surfed to your heart’s content it’s back to the Surf House for lunch followed by another surf, a local activity…or maybe the first beer of the day!

Basque Country has a bunch of activities, from horseback riding and paragliding for the adrenaline junkie to pintxo tours through the Michelin-starred streets of San Sebastian for the foodies. Whatever happens it will surely end in a massive party with our newfound friends hopping from one bar to another Spanish-style or dancing until the sun comes up over La Concha beach. Good thing surfing is the perfect hangover cure, so we can cure our spinning heads every morning and do it all again.

  • This itinerary is meant to be just a guide, not a set in stone, to the minute, school camp itinerary. This is what your day may look like at the San Sebastian Surf Camp – depending on the waves, weather and your wants and needs. There’s always something for you to do, but it’s your holiday so feel free to lay on the beach, have a beer or go on an adventure with your new surf mates instead.

    Morning

    Wake up to a homely, cooked breakfast down in our chillout area and exchange stories from last night’s antics, read the surf report and get excited to head out surfing. Jump on our surf bus and enjoy the ride down through the national park to the beach, grab your board and either scout out the best banks on the beach or head into your lesson with one of our surf instructors.

    Afternoon

    When your all surfed out, we’ll either have lunch in the sunshine at the beach together, or head back up to the house for a hot lunch and a cold sangria. If you’re feeling bendy join a yoga class on our yoga deck; maybe you want to head out hiking through the Basque hills that our surf house backs onto; you can choose to go into town and explore, join in on a Spanish Class, head back down to the beach for another surf, or just relax! In the afternoon you will most likely find yourself hanging out at the house watching the sun go down over a few drinks and sharing stories or becoming lord of the ping pong table.

    Evening

    If you’re the sensible type you can get in a good night’s sleep and be up bright and early for sunset yoga and breathtaking views out over the valley. If some more drinks, music and exploring sound more like you, then either join us on a pintxos tour in Zarautz or San Sebastian, a trip to a traditional basque cider house or maybe even one of the many festivals that may be on during your stay.
