A week of surf, sun and yoga in the basque country - 100% good vibes guarenteed.
Twice a year we take a group to the fantastic Latas Surf Camp in Loredo to celebrate the start and end of the summer surf season in Europe.
The beach is a short walk down from the Villa. The 3km beach offers ideal beach breaks for beginners, and some fun waves for those more advanced surfers. Surf coaching or guiding is included in the package, so you will receive the appropriate coaching for your skill level. And with local knowledge of the waves, you will always be on the best waves of the day.
What to Expect
We want this to be a truly hassle free surf trip. You just need to arrive in Santander and we will take care of the rest!
There is a free transfer available for the 21.45pm arrival from Stansted (30th April | 8th October), and departure transfer for the 22.10pm departure from Santander back to Stansted (7th May | 15th October 2017). Otherwise, it's £30 per taxi, one way.
Single-sex en suite dorm rooms are available to guests, and those who want a bit more privacy can upgrade to a private Twin or Double room at the Finn House a short walk away (additional £90 per person, or £180 single occupancy).
A continental breakfast is served daily, including a mixture of fresh bread, toppings, eggs, yoghurt, cereals, fruit and cakes. After breakfast it's straight to the beach a short walk away. Groups will be divided up into ability with a 8:1 surfer to instructor ratio. Surf lessons are around 2 hours long, then it's back to camp for a well earned lunch. In the afternoon we head back to the beach for your second surf lesson of the day. As well as surfing there's plenty of time to chill in a hammock with a book, play some pool, pick out one of the free Latas skateboards or head into Loredo or Somo to explore the local area.
We will be running yoga sessions once per day, usually in the early evening before dinner. The ideal post-surf activity! Don't worry if you're new to yoga, or an experienced yogi - the sessions are fun and suitable to everyone.
For evening meals, you can pay for the dinner-package on arrival (usually about €60 in total) or leave it open to make the most of Spanish cuisine at the local cafes and restaurants. The team will arrange a night out in Santander, usually mid-week.

Otherwise it's £30 each way, per car.

If you need a break, then chill out in a hammock reading a book or wander down to Somo town. The yoga classes will take place once per day, usually the early evening. Yoga perfectly compliments surfing, so come and join in! In the evenings we will either enjoy music and a BBQ in camp, or head out for dinner in Somo or Santander. A party is a guarantee for the final night in Spain. Depending on the time of the departure flight, we will always try to get in a final surf and yoga session in the morning.

You will need to book your own flights to Santander, get travel insurance and bring some euros for dinners, drinks and for the odd souvenir if you wish. We don't include dinner within the price, so that you can explore the cafes and restaurants in Loredo, Somo and Santander.
Sickest people and the sickest surf. Was stoked to do yoga as well, feeling well flexible. Can’t wait for October 2015!James Follet
