ABOUT THE SURF CAMP


LOCATION AND SURF CONDITIONS



The Surf House As Furnas is located in the northern Spanish region of Galicia, in the small village of Xuño, on the western Atlantic coast. The place Xuño, with its nearly 1,000 inhabitants, is located midway between the Atlantic and the mountain range of Barbanza, just a 5 minutes walk to the two beaches As Furnas and Rio Sieira. The Surf House is located in the hills at the foot of the mountain A Curota, which offers a variety of routes for both cycling and hiking. The view from the top is unique, ranging from the islands of Cies up to Finisterre, also known as the end of the world.
Galicia is undoubtedly the place with the highest probability of waves in Mainland Europe.
The remaining, untouched by mass tourism region in the immediate vicinity of the Surf House, together with its miles of sandy beaches and coves, offers ideal conditions for surfing.Whether beginner or advanced, for each level and for almost every forecast you can find the appropriate conditions. Overcrowded lineups do not exist here!

SURF COURSE AND ACTIVITIES


SURF COURSE DETAILS



The surf courses are exclusively in small groups (max. 7 people). This allows us to respond individually to our participants and thus, a faster learning in a friendly atmosphere is guaranteed. The provided surfing equipment is in perfect condition and comply with the latest safety standards.
All beaches are about a one to 15 minute drive from each other. Some of the best spots are: Vilar, Ladeira, Corrubedo, Las Furnas and Rio Sieira.
You are going from the Surf House together with our surf instructors to a nearby beach where you are going to have a total of 3 hours of class a day, divided into 2 units.
Prices of the courses include transportation, equipment and class. The surf lessons are only for people, who stay in the house.



SURF MATERIALS



The provided surfing equipment is in perfect condition and comply with the latest safety standards. We have as well softboards as fiberglass surfboards for our advanced surfers. Who is doing a surf course can also have the materia for free outside the course; others can borrow it of course.



OTHER ACTIVITIES



Yoga
The yoga classes are always designed to complement surf lessons. In good weather, the classes are given either in the garden at the Surf House or at the beach of As Furnas, while in bad weather they take place in the cultural centre of Xuño.
We only work with experienced and qualified yoga teachers who know exactly what constitutes the right combination of stretching, breathing and concentration, and relaxation.

Spanish language course
The course should be fun in the first place. Within a week you’ll not become an expert neither you shall be able to write poetry in Spanish. But the language course should serve you as some basis on which you can build later. The aim is to implement what you have learned and apply it in everyday situations as well.
In our language course, all aspects of a general language training are taken into account, however, the communicative aspect stands in the foreground.
In addition to the ideal conditions for surfing, the area around the Surf House also offers a wide range of activities and excursions.

Whether you choose beach volleyball, fishing, snorkeling, rock climbing, horse riding, scuba diving or sailing with a partner in the area, you’ll definitely find something to suit your taste.
But if sport alone is not enough for you, there is a number of interesting destinations, ranging from the impressive Celtic settlement in the neighbourhood of Castro de Baroña, the Galician capital Santiago de Compostela, to fishing villages and their charming ports such as Rianxo and Pobra do Caramiñal.

This reviewer told us :

Surfhouse As Furnas is located in a small and calm town "Xuno" right by the pristine beaches "As Furnas" and "Rio Siera". The surf house is spacious, bright, cozy and always clean. The rooms are airy and neat. The house has a big garden, where you'll find a variety of possibilities to chill and relax, such as a lounge, hammocks, a swing and more. You'll get all you need for the perfect surf starting with a great surf teacher, consistent waves, surfboards, wetsuits... And if you need some stretching and calming after surfing you can take a Yoga lesson in the garden. I had a great time at the Surf house as Furnas. It's a lovely place run with a lot of passion and energy!

Had 5 fabulous days at Surf House learning to surf (aka midlife crisis), learning Spanish and enjoying some wonderful yoga courtesy of Anna. The hostess Kathy is a great surf and Spanish teacher and really great fun. Good accommodation, good food, sleepy village and the coastline is absolutely stunning. Book in a few days, you won't be dis-appointed. Muchas gracias Kathy!
