Located next to San Sebastian in the Bay of Biscay, Zarautz is a true beach resort where you can feel the holiday atmosphere everywhere. Zarautz is located in a beautiful bay, surrounded by mountains with a beach that stretches over 2.5 kilometers with various surf peaks and surf breaks. Most of the beach is connected to a seafront promenade, which is also very popular at night to stroll along the bars and restaurants. Also in the old town there are numerous, small squares with bars and restaurants, which serve delicious food, such as the famous Pinchos.

The surf camp is just 500 meters from the beach. Since the year 2000 we have had our own private area in the countryside. Here you can feel the surf spirit from more than 10 years of experience. No wonder everyone feels at home here right away, whether it’s talking at the bar or on the sun terrace, chilling out in the hammocks or relaxing in the yoga and massage areas. We are proud of the many international guests from all over Europe and the world who visit our surf camp every year and make their stay at the surf camp a unique experience. You are accommodated in spacious and comfortable tents, which are shady under trees. Our chefs will prepare you, if booked, a great healthy breakfast and a delicious dinner. Charging stations for your mobile devices, WiFi and our Sector 9 Skate Longboards are available free of charge.

In addition to surfing, we do a lot of other activities with you such as beach volleyball, skate sessions, crazy parties in the city, a traditional beach party, a trip to San Sebastian and much more.

The surf camp is located on the largest surf beach of the northern Spanish Atlantic coast in the beautiful Basque Country, only 20 kilometers from San Sebastian. Zarautz is one of the most famous and popular surf spots in Spain. Especially in summer, Zarautz is favored by waves that inspire both beginners and intermediate surfers. Whether big or small swell, here you will find waves that run out clean and beautifully. You’ll always have fun, no frustration. The sandy beach is flat, there are no stones in the water and no dangerous currents. The water is very clear and gets up to 23 degrees warm in summer.

The surf lessons take place daily in small groups up to 6 people, which are put together according to your surfing level. The goal is to improve your surfing, so you quickly reach the next level and have fun on the waves at the same time. This is guaranteed by our certified surf instructors, who take care of you personally. If you don’t have your own surfboard, you can rent a board and surf with it whenever you like. Every Friday we organize an unofficial surf contest where you can prove your progress.
