Surf Lessons Spain - Learn How to Surf in Spain

San Vicente de la Barquera is home to two beaches for surfing. The first is just 80m from our surf camp, has consistently great waves and is where our surf lessons usually take place. However, on the rare occasion that the waves get too big here, we teach our lessons on the second beach, namely Oyambre beach. Thus, no matter what the surf conditions, there is a break where we can safely teach our surf lessons at.

Our surf camp in San Vicente offers lessons for all abilities, whether you’ve never surfed before, or are working on your advanced manoeuvres. Students are allocated into groups based on their ability level, meaning that you are surfing with others of similar ability, to maximise your progress and ensure your safety in the water. Lessons are taken with a maximum of eight students per instructor, and all of our surf instructors hold an official licence to instruct.

Our surf lesson programmes consist of 22 surf lessons each week, with each lesson lasting 45 minutes. Thus, lessons are grouped into sessions, and you will thus usually take four lessons of 45 minutes each day, for six days, giving you three hours of tuition with one of our experienced surf instructors per day.

If you want to surf outside of the lesson times too, you need not worry as we provide free, unlimited board and wetsuit hire for the duration of your stay.
