A Day on Van Surfari
Just like a normal safari, the day’s plan is never set in stone. We’ll be starting bright and early to eat a home-cooked breakfast, and then we pack the van and hit the road in search of the best waves and the biggest kicks of the day! Regardless of how it looks, your days will be filled with delicious food, incredible scenery, world-class waves, and tons of booze.
8:00 – 10:00am Wake up to a delicious cooked breakfast whether it be pancakes, bacon and eggs or a ham & cheese omelette.
10am onwards – Jump in the van and head to the best waves of the day. If you’re a beginner the instructors are there to help you and will have you standing up before you know it!
8pm – After a full day of surfing, it’s back to the house for a nice hot dinner before the option of a party night out. Take advantage of our unlimited beer and sangria for €10 a night to ensure a good time!
On the road baby! Kinda.
Because the whole concept of a Surfari is to be out on the open road, hunting those perfect waves. We’ll be cruising between Bordeaux in France and Bilbao in Spain, but we can go further afield if the waves call. At the end of the day, we’ll retreat back to the surf house in Aia or find an epic campsite to partake in the evening events.

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.
