Favorite Surf Spots

The area extending from Biarritz to Bilbao has the best surf coast in Spain and possibly in Europe. One of Europe’s world-class surf spots, Mundaka, is a long powerful left-hander that breaks on a river mouth in the picturesque Gernika estuary, a natural area protected by UNESCO and dominated by the village’s church! Another world-class reef break is Meñakoz, a very big and powerful right. Further good spots in the area include Bakio and Sopelana, both regional classic beach breaks with lefts and rights that are accessible to all kinds of surfers.



Skate sessions and lessons in the best street skate parks of Bilbao. You will have the chance to skate in the harbor situated in Basauri, in Amezola Square, spots in the city center and many other places and skate parks shown on famous videos of renowned skaters.

The instructors will be skating with you showing you new moves and giving you tips on how to improve your skills.

There will also be someone filming to register all your progress and after the sessions, the instructors will do video analysis and correct your movements

The Basque Country

Flanked by the Atlantic and the Pyrenees Mountain ranges, the Basque Country occupies the north-west corner of the Iberian Peninsula, close to the French border. Although the area is one of the most industrialized regions in Spain, it’s inhabitants have nevertheless managed to preserve through the centuries an age-old native culture which most valuable jewel is it’s the local language, Euskera, a pre-Indo European tongue whose mysterious origin has never been established.

Euskadi, meaning Basque Country in Euskera, is part of Green Spain. The landscape is formed by a cliff-lined coast with remarkable fishing villages and mountainous hinterland covered by green forests, offering a contrasting image to the dry and desert-like central Spain.

Bilbao is the industrial, financial and intellectual capital of the Basque Country. One of Spain’s largest cities and the country’s major harbor, Bilbao has recently turned into a popular touristic destination through a complete architectural revival featuring Frank Gehry’s striking Guggenheim Museum, Norman Foster’s impressive subway system and Santiago Calatrava’s spectacular new airport terminal.
