Our customers are the happiest

Surfing is a good way to make the most of your holidays on the basque country. Taking a deep breath and enjoying the ocean vibes... We will do our best to ensure you have fun and enjoy our playground between the ocean and the mountains. At the end of your lessons, you are going to feel the extraodinary sensations surfing brings and if the ocean brings you good waves, you'll surf the board as you never though possible. You'll be able to pick a good wave, draw some lines on the shoulder of the wave and go from the lineup to the shore. You'll know what board to pick according to the waves and your abilities, to read the tides and the forecast.
