Join us for sun & surf in the beautiful Northern Spain for some fun, sun, surf and sangria!
Twice a year we take a group to the fantastic Latas Surf Camp in Loredo to celebrate the start of the summer surf season in Europe.
The beach is a short walk down from the Villa. The 3km beach offers ideal waves for beginners in the sheltered corner and fun to epic waves for those more advanced surfers. You can choose to upgrade to a full package with surf kit and daily 2hr surf coaching or stay with the basic package if you don't require lessons.
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.
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 Latas Surf Lodge 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. For this basic package, no lessons are included, but you're welcome to join us on the beach for a morning session. After this you can chill at the camp in a hammock, go for a skate, or explore the nearby towns before lunch is served at 2pm.
The afternoons are free for a second surf, yoga or just grab a cervesa and chill. For evening meals, you can pay for the epic dinner-package (+£45) or check out some of the local Spanish restaurants. The team will arrange a night out in Santander, usually mid-week.

*The Dougals brewery tour is a hugely infamous and recommended extra. It depends on numbers but is usually around €25pp including transport and yes, includes complimentary, delicious beers all afternoon.
*We have got a deal on surf hire for you guys, £70 for 6 days, which is reduced price and a lot easier than bringing your kit.
*If you haven't surfed before and are wanting lessons, we have got a great deal for you with 5 x 2 hour lessons, 5 x 2 hour afternoon guided surf, all including hire for £100
*If you are keen for eating dinner, Latas serve up a great feast each evening where you can help yourself to as much as you like. From Spag Bowl to Poke Bowls, they'll refuel you after a day of surf and sun. You can book the dinners beforehand for £45 for all 5.
Here you'll find a day by day breakdown of your course.
The team will greet you on arrival in Santander and take you the short journey back to the Latas Surf House.

There is a free airport transfer in the afternoon or for the 21.45pm (Ryanair flight from Stansted). Otherwise it's £40 each way, per car.
Surf & Chill
Wake up and enjoy a basque breakfast before hitting the beach! The other group will be in surf lessons, but you're free to surf in your own time. Lunch will be between 2-3pm each day, followed by the afternoon surf sessions and some insane sun sets! If you need a break, then chill out in a hammock reading a book or wander down to Somo town. 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 session in the morning.
Depending on your flight, you can jump in the sea for a final surf or chill out at the camp. There is a free transfer available in the afternoon and at 22.10pm on the final day of the trip (departure to Stansted). Otherwise, it's around £40 per taxi, one way.

There is a free transfer available for the 21.45pm arrival from Stansted (14th October 2018), and departure transfer for the 22.10pm departure from Santander back to Stansted (21st October 2018). Otherwise, it's £40 per taxi, one way. You can also fly into Bilbao, but transfers will be in the region of £60-£70 each way.
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.
This is ideal for intermediate / advanced surfers who just wish to join a fun group at an awesome surf camp, without paying for surf coaching or kit. Or maybe your friend / partner is joining us for surf coaching, and you just want to come along for the week - you're all welcome!
