LOCATION & GETTING HERE
The surf camp area
Bilbao Teens Surf Camp is located 5 minutes away from the Sopelana beach, in the municipality of Urduliz, a very quite and calm atmosphere surrounded by nature.
Sopelana is a beach break spot, with waves from 1 to 8 ft. The spot works at any time of the year with a swell coming from northwest and which provides left and right handers waves. It is located in Uribe, famous for its numerous surf spots all along the coast. The water temperature is going from 13°C in winter to 22°C in summer. It is recommended to wear a good summer wetsuit even if the temperature outside is warm. The weather can change very quickly.
Let’s discover a place where surfing is a real way of life. Uribe’s beaches and surf spots, such as Barinatxe, Sopelana, Meñakoz, and Barrika, have been the heart of European surf for about thirty years. The region has kept its natural and varied environment thanks to the good preservation of the land by the rural population.
