After a full day of surfing, horse riding, paragliding and of course partying, come crash in the spacious dorms we provide for accommodation. Our camp is a three-story converted farm house in the hills of the Basque Country, with four seperate dorm rooms to choose from (or upgrade to our private wooden Sheddie cabins, or glamping tents available on request only). Bedding included.

The beauty of staying at the surf house is that you can do whatever you like, whenever you like, your way. Because of this we don’t make you stick to a strict schedule. Instead we let you decide which activities to choose from.
Head to the beach to wash away the headaches (and mistakes) of the night before, spend your time here with a couple of hours of surfing, relaxing, soaking up the sun or playing beach games.
Once we’ve worked up enough of an appetite, it’s back to the house to fill up on a tasty lunch prepared by our in-house chef or maybe we’ll bring lunch to you so you can make the most of the midday sun.
There are tons of different activities in the surrounding region to keep everyone occupied. You can hit up the famous pintxos bars in San Sebastian. Or go on free walking tours, horse riding, paragliding, wine tasting tours or simply head to the beach for more surfing. If you’re feeling lazy (or too hungover) you can always enjoy the sunshine from our terrace in all its glory. Finish your afternoon activities with a cider on the hill, watching the sunset and then enjoy a big hearty dinner to line the stomach.
