A week of surf, sun and yoga in beautiful Northern Spain. 100% good vibes guaranteed.
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 waves for beginners in the sheltered corner, as well as fun to epic waves for the 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.
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 epic Latas dinner-package (+£45) 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.

Surf & YogaWake up and enjoy a basque breakfast before hitting the beach for your coaching class. You will be in groups of similar ability and surfing the fun waves of Somo beach. Lunch will be between 1-3pm each day, followed by the afternoon surf lesson where you will receive more coaching and practice your skills. 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.

The majority of guests tend to be beginners/improvers. We have a team of experienced qualified surf coaches awaiting your arrival, so expect to be standing and making some turns by the end of the week.
For advanced surfers not needing lessons, see the alternative 'basic' package without coaching.
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.
