Free Surf Package Surfing

Our Free Surf Package is great for surfers who want to be left to their own devices for an entire week. Instead of having scheduled lessons you simply get to use our surfboards and wetsuits and are left to ride the waves on your own. All you have to do is stick to the designated staked surf zone, so we can ensure your safety, and shred those waves. After a long day in the ocean simply head back to the surf camp house (or glamping site) and relax, ready for another day of fresh ocean air tomorrow. This package price includes accommodation, food and wetsuit and surfboard hire.

Guests using this package have a choice of accommodation between glamping in a deluxe two-person tent at the nearby campsite (located just 300 metres from the surf camp) or staying at our 4-bedroom Beach House. The tent features a comfortable bed, a small kitchen area and kitchen amenities while the house boasts a living room with fire, dining room and spacious garden area.

The beauty of this package is that there is no itinerary! You make your own schedule based entirely on what you fancy doing that day. Rise early and catch the first waves? Sure. Have a late breakfast, relax on the sands then jump on your board in the mid-afternoon sun? Go for it. It's all entirely up to you!

05.05. - 20.10.2018

This surf package includes seven days of surfboard and wetsuit hire, seven nights accommodation (in the Beach House or deluxe camping), seven buffet breakfasts and six two-course evening meals. It also includes one free transfer to dinner in the neighbouring village and pick-up and drop-off in San Vincente if required.

Carefree Package Surfing

This all-inclusive package includes a five-day surf course suitable for both beginners and advanced surfers. Beginners will start by practising on dry land with soft boards; here you’ll learn the theory behind surfing including wave formation, tides, currents and weather effects. You’ll then begin to interlock your theory with practical lessons in the water as each day you’ll enjoy a fun and exhilarating three-hour practical lesson, complemented by ongoing theory classes. This package also includes video material analysis to help you improve you develop your skills. By the end of the week, you’ll be a confident surfer! Advanced surfers will be given use of the hardboards and will begin the course by setting goals.

Guests using this package have a choice of accommodation between glamping in a deluxe two-person tent at the nearby campsite (located just 300 metres from the surf camp) or staying at our 4-bedroom Beach House. The tent features a comfortable bed, a small kitchen area and kitchen amenities while the house boasts a living room with fire, dining room and spacious garden area.

Day 1 - Rise and Surf
Having arrived at the surf camp and settled into your accommodation, it's time to hit the beach. Your first lesson will cover the theory behind surfing as you explore the effects of tide, weather and swell on the board. Today you'll also practice balance on the board; this will be done on the sands as you learn to jump, stand and balance confidently. After class, head back to the Beach House and unwind in the lounge.

Day 2 – Practical
Today you’ll be putting your surf theory to the test and taking to the water. In your three hour practical lesson you will attempt to stand on the board while in the ocean and put your dry sand moves to the test. After your lesson, today why not head out on one of our mountain bikes and explore the surrounding area, or head into the mountains. Stretch those muscles out!

Day 3 – Theory Continued
By the third day, you should be feeling a lot more confident in the water and eager to try out your new found skills. Spend the lesson interlocking your theory lessons into your practical lessons until you're smoothly riding your first wave! Back at the Beach House, you can dine on the in-house chef's gourmet two-course meal before heading back down to the beach for a sunset walk.

Day 4 – Building Confidence
Your penultimate lesson will be spent honing in on your new found skills and pushing yourself to the limits. Your instructor will record you surfing and then analyse the footage with you to discuss what you're doing great at and what needs a little improvement. This is the best way to improve quickly!

Day 5 – Final Lessons
Your final day surfing is going to be a super fun one! Take everything you've learnt over the past five days and put it all to the test. Ride those waves like a seasoned pro, remembering the tips and tricks your instructors taught you over the week. Tonight enjoy your final meal at the house and watch the sunset from the garden.

About the location

Accommodation

Here at Elementsurf, we offer two accommodation options; glamping at the nearby campsite just 300m from our surf camp or residing in our cosy Elementhouse (a Spanish style villa just back from the water's edge). Over on the campsite, you’ll have a spacious two-person luxury tent equipped with a comfy bed and mattress, a mini kitchen area with gas cooker, refrigerator and utensils. The campsite also features an on-site restaurant, supermarket and café. Back at Elementhouse, you’ll find bedrooms with ensuites, the villa featuring both double and single beds, a quaint dining room and a large lounge with fireplace. You’ll also find a BBQ area in the garden and shaded awning area to dodge that mid-afternoon sun. All our bedrooms feature magnificent views over either the Atlantic Ocean, the surrounding mountains or the rolling meadows.

Location

Our surf camp is tucked away into the green hills of Oyambre Natural Park, just 150 metres from the beach. The neighbouring village of Comillas sits just 5km away while Bilbao Airport is just under a 1 hour 30 minute drive east. With the coastline directly in front of us, we’re surrounded on the remaining three sides by lush green meadows, Picos de Europa mountains and flora and fauna abound (Eucalyptus trees galore!). This landscape provides a fantastic playground for alternate outdoor activities (which we encourage) including hiking, kayaking and mountain biking.

Food

Every morning at Elementsurf Camp kicks off the right way with a deluxe buffet breakfast featuring fresh regional specialities including natural yoghurt, fruit baskets, cheese and meat platters, wholegrain and oatmeal cereals and fresh bread and jams. Don’t forget to fuel up with a coffee before you hit the beach! If you get peckish during the day head to our bistro to pick up a light bite, a cold beer or a fresh juice. Come evening enjoy dining on our chef’s own two-course gourmet menu which features traditional Spanish cuisine. Element surf are not just about the standard package experience, they want to ensure you leave as a friend, after enjoying the incredible food on offer you are invited to celebrate the culture through the food. If you’ve got a dietary requirement make sure you mention it in your booking notes so we can discuss it further and prepare for your arrival!
