Errant Surf Strikes Spanish Gold


F France, Autumn in Spain is the Shhh.

We’ve just returned from our annual Surf & Yoga week at the piqturesque Latas Surf House in Northern Spain, exhausted from the dredging barrels and sick of the sight of some of the world’s most beautiful lineups. Think empty beach breaks with snow-capped mountains as a backdrop, sketchy reef-breaks breaking on the doorstep of a big city. Waves from all directions, meaning it’s always offshore somewhere. Waves the rivaled it’s neighbour France, yet we had no one to share them with. Anyway our boards are still finless and the surf followed us home to Newquay, so I’m going to let these pictures do the talking. All shots by Lewis.

Adios, party time

As that was such a blast, we’ve booked up the surf house for a week from 10th – 17th May 2015, for our third Surf and Yoga week. Yep, Spring in Spain; think more sun and smaller waves. We’ve also made some small changes for the better (surf lesson times, food) but kept the same ridiculous price of £249, including:

  • 7 nights shared accommodation
  • Return transfers from Santander airport or ferry port
  • Welcome BBQ and party
  • Yoga @ 7am & 4pm daily
  • Basque Breakfast 8:30am – 10am daily
  • 6 mornings of Surf Coaching 10am – 12:30pm
  • Lunch 1pm – 3pm every day
  • All surfing equipment
  • Photos of your surfing
  • Hot showers 24/7 and linen
  • Free use of SUP’s, bikes and skateboards

You can upgrade to a twin or double room for an extra £100 per room and buy a dinner package for £50, meaning you can stuff your face on unlimited healthy, hassle-free food every night for just over £8 a meal.
Flights are currently £89 return with RyanAir from Stansted and you can secure your place with a £50 deposit, with the balance not due until 6 weeks before the trip.
Oh and we’re offering 20% off to the first 20 spaces sold.
Hasta Luego!
