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!
The surf courses are exclusively in small groups. This allows us to respond individually to our participants and thus, a faster learning in a friendly atmosphere is guaranteed. We offer surf courses for all levels: advanced, intermediate and beginners. A surf instructor supervises a maximum of 7 surf students.
If you already have experience in surfing, this is an important information for us. We want to help you pick up where you stopped on your last surf holiday.
Our surf instructors have qualification certificates ( licensed by the International Surfing Association ISA; the Galician Surf Federation FGS and the Spanish Surf Federation FES ) and many years of experience in teaching. You drive from the Surf House together with them to one of the surrounding surf spots, where you can get 4 hours of surf lessons per day, divided into two parts. Our entire surf material is like new and we do offer our advanced surf guests hardboards and longboards. The surf course is only for guests of the Surf House.
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.
From early May to late October the water temperature is between 18 and 20 degrees. We do recommend a 4/3mm neoprene for surfing and any other water sport.
You can book additional surf lessons on site at any time and change the level of the surf course. If you do not want to take part of the surf course and would rather prefer to try surfing yourself during your stay, you can rent the necessary surf material and take our transport to the beach. For reservation and prices, please see below in the section material.
In recent years, more and more surfers have discovered yoga for themselves. For surfing, you need both strength, endurance and balance and coordination; properties that are trained in yoga practice. More flexibility and better body voltage can significantly improve your surfing. In addition, muscles and tendons are stretched and relaxed during yoga, and you’re therefore automatically protected against injuries.
The yoga classes, mainly Vinyasa Yoga, take place in small groups on our beautiful and quiet yoga platform under the trees in the garden. Here too, we put much importance on the fact that our yoga teacher (trained in 200 hours Vinyasa/ Ashtanga yoga teacher in Rishikesh, India) adapts the lesson’s level on the individual abilities of the participants, and does respect also their preferences and limits.
The surf skate lessons usually take place in the afternoon after the surf course, in a group of a maximum of 6 participants. You can work on your surfing technique for 1 hour per day in a nearby sports facility. The surf skate lessons will help you to improve your balance, coordination and style when surfing in the ocean.
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.
Our language teacher has years of experience in teaching languages, as well as a Spanish Language Diploma (DELE).
• Course materials (dictionary, copies, vocabulary lists, grammar exercises, etc…)
• Role playing, dialogue exercises
• Practice exercises (supermarket shopping, ordering in a bar / restaurant)
• Information about culture, society and gastronomy
You can either book the yoga classes, surf skate lessons and Spanish course before the start of your trip, or you can decide spontaneously on site.
In addition, we offer various massages (sports, relax and Thai massage), horse riding excursions and free bike rental.
