 The Nomad Surfcamp - North of Spain was created in 1998 and is located in Santoña, on Cantabria’s eastern coast in between Bilbao and Santander. It is one of many vacation spots in northern Spain which is noted for its beauty and tourist possibilities.

Our Surfcamp is right beside the beach (20 metres from the beach) and overlooks one of the best point breaks there is to be had. With more than 2km of white sand and perfect beach breaks; it’s an idyllic place for the practice and learning of surfing.

We have over 2.200 m2 of facilities for surfing in summer school.  All the instructors are certified with extensive experience working in the Surfschool. 


 English and Spanish Language Courses for children between 10-18 years old who wish to learn or improve their english during the stay, offered by a certified English teacher that works all year long in Private School in London.  The courses are having a lot of acceptance and very good results because the children learn in a relaxed environment and our programming focuses more on different areas non covered during the school.  Two hours daily of theory class. The surfcourses are also taught in English so that the kids get used to it and learn in a relaxed and unconscious way.

Accommodation in triple, and quatruple rooms.

 The surf accommodation is 15 metres from the beach and in the sand in front of one of the best breaks of the beach, the peak.  Most of the rooms have spectacular sea views and terrace to check out the waves upon waking.  At night you will go to sleep listening to the waves.

All the rooms have TV, private bathroom and WIFI. In the halls are served breakfast, lunch and dinner while in the terrace you can have a delicious burger or spend the afternoon.



 In the first floor we have the video projection room and when the weather is nice outdoor screenings.  We also have our little VIP's area (assigned by lottery or by order of arrival) in a villa facing the waves with room up to 20 people where you can stay more isolated, with the right to enjoy all that is included in the Surfcamp.  All our Camps are mixed.  The bedrooms distribution is by sex and age.
