Surf Camp in Spain for Adults
Nomad Surf Camps organises Surf Camp for adults in Spain. The Nomad Surf Camp (Galicia) is located at the famous surf spot of Valdovino Beach.
Our surf camp is literally a few steps away from the beach and only 1 hour away from from two famous airports. Santiago de Compostela and La Coruna International airports, both have very good connections and cheap flights from all over Europe due to the millions of people that come each year to pilgrimage “Camino de Santiago”.
A privileged location for a Surf camp located in the protected natural park, A Frouxeira lagoon and the Valdoviño dune system have been declared a Special Protection Area (SPA) and a wetland of international importance since 1993. A rich natural space, with exceptional flora that annually receives more than 15,000 birds, making it a mandatory stop for ornithology lovers.
