THE ACCOMMODATION

 

Our surf camp for Teenagers in Spain

 

We are proud to announce that in 2024 we have moved our operation even closer to the beach. Our surf summer camp is located in a privileged absolute Beach front which means we will walk to the surf lessons in seconds. The accommodation is in bungalows in a camping complex with Seaview from the balcony of most bungalows.  It’s a peaceful and quiet holiday/residencial area. It is very safe and pleasant to walk around. There are a few restaurants and supermarket walking distance but not much more besides the beautiful beach, soccer and basketball courts and skateparks.

 

Private Bungalows

Each bungalow has two twin rooms, bathroom, living room, kitchen and balcony.

 

Only two people per room

The rooms are maximum two girls our two boys per room. All linen included.

 

Meals Cooked with Love

The beachfront restaurant is specialised in Spanish cuisine but the Chef also prepares international dishes and delicious desserts for our campers.

Spanish Cuisine (Cocina Espanola) features considerable diversity. Olive oil (of which Spain is the largest producer) is extensively used. It forms the base of most vegetable sauces (sofritos). Herbs most commonly used include Oregano, Parsley, Rosemary and Thyme.

Garlic is frequently used, and the most popular meats in Spanish cooking are veal, lamb, pig, and chicken. Seafood and fish are also regularly consumed. Diverse snacks and appetisers (Tapas and pinchos) will be offered one of the nights as dinner.

 

Breakfast: A fantastic breakfast buffet with natural orange juice, fruit, a variety of hams, eggs, bacon, cheese, Milk and cereal is offered at the surf camp. Croissants and freshly baked breads. Jams, Peanut butters, Nutella, Fruits and vegetables, including salad and tomatoes.

 

Lunch and Dinner: First course , Main course, and Desert. This can includes salads, soups, pasta, etc. At least 1 source of protein per meal.

 

3 Skate parks walking distance

5 minutes away there is skate bowl for carving (Surf skate) small enough for beginners to start and practice their surfing turns. Best way to master the rail to surf technique. We recommend you bring a Smoothstar, Yow, or Carver skateboard this summer.

5 minutes walking distance is a Skating Pump track.

And 7 minute walk in Somo is a Skate bowl where you can skate or watch the local skaters shredding.

 

For Parents

We have dedicated many years to the practice and teaching of surfing, so Nomad Surf Camps organised this Surf Camp for kids in Spain with great enthusiasm, specialising in minors. The boys/girls will be supervised at the camp, in the surf lessons and activities extras we developed by our Chaperones.  We do bedtime checks and also there is 24 hour security at the camping. They will be surfing, doing sports and having fun but with the maximum security for them. The entire team of the surf school are qualified surf instructors.

Qualified surf instructors who speak English. All surf equipment included. For security reasons the surf lessons can only be taught on soft top surf boards. But there are short soft tops which are just like hardboard shortboards. So even if you are an intermediate surfer you can surf with these short boards (made out of soft material but with good hard fins).

We offer three surf levels:

 

First Time surfing or only surf a few times a year.

I can paddle on my own and stand up 

I bring my own short surf board and wish to free surf. (under supervision)

 

The surf lessons are taught in soft tops. If you wish to surf a shortboard you need to bring it with you.

 

How are the waves in Loredo?

The beach in front is Loredo and very good for beginners aswell as experienced surfers. Its also for protected from the wind thanks to Santa Marina Island in front. At the edge of Santa Marina breaks a famous wave in big swells. And walking down the beach you can surf Somo. It is the perfect place for learning to surf and super fun beach break for rippers who already surf.
