ABOUT THE SURF CAMP


LOCATION AND SURF CONDITIONS
Our priority here is that you get the best waves possible throughout your stay with us, so we are committed to taking you wherever is necessary to fulfil this goal. Our closest spots are:

El Palmar - Our main teaching site is El Palmar Beach, Vejer. This is an exposed beach break that gets consistent rideable waves all year round thanks to its location and its perfectly sculpted sandbanks. Even on the smallest days we often see cruisey waves that are perfect for beginners, but when the bigger swells roll in brace yourselves for some gnarly overhead barrels (dependent on your competency, these days may be more enjoyable from dry land but luckily we have the perfect viewing spot from our rooftop terrace!!). The best part about El Palmar is its big open space, even on the busiest day of the year there is enough room and consistent waves for everyone in the water. 

Conil - A mere 100m from the hostel we have Conil, another open beachbreak thats perfect for getting a little extra practice in after classes. It's a little more exposed to the elements and is often used as a kiting spot, but a 10 minute walk up the beach offers some more shelter and the opportunity for some nice uniform waves.

Los Caños - Los Caños is an idyllic bay with a lighthouse that with a favourable swell makes for some great surfing. On a good day Los Caños has been known to have up to 5 working spots, each a slow breaking powerful wave with long open walls which are perfect for practising your turns and speed generation techniques or having some fun on a longboard. 
 
Other notable spots within close proximity are Fuente de Gallo, Fontanilla and Hierbabuena.



CAMP CHARACTER
Our camp is open to surfers of all ages and abilities. The most important thing to us is that you leave having improved on the level you started with and of course that you had a fantastic time doing so!

The team here is dedicated to creating the best atmosphere with something for everyone to enjoy, we have the capacity to host groups of any size (max 40pax) and family rooms available for anyone looking to take their kids on a fun getaway.



CAMP OPERATOR
Santiago Lobato studied at the University of Cadiz and graduated as a Master in Marine Science.  Growing up on the Costa de la Luz, Santiago got into surfing at a very young age. His father passed his love of the Windsurf & Surf and its waves on to Santiago when he was still just a young boy. Since then, surfing and windsurfing has become a passion for Santiago and he has gone on to surf all around the world in places such as Portugal, France, Indonesia, Thailand, Morocco and the Philipines. He also spent 14 years in Tarifa where he obtained his first official certificate for surf instructing and Kitesurfing IKO In the meantime, he was teaching in various Kite Schools and Surf Schools where he sampled and perfected many different approaches and methods for teaching people to surf. Santiago's passion and his aim is to give our customers an unforgettable experience to take home with them.
