After many years of being asked on Scottish highland and island tours “When are you doing a European trip?” we’ve finally decided to embark on our first pilot tour adventure to Northern España.
So come with us vamos! and explore the spectacular scenery, beautiful coves and long sandy beaches of northern Spain. Immerse yourself in a cultural adventure visiting sidrerias, local towns and villages as well as exploring the sublime natural environment.
Over the course of the week we’ll aim to get 10 surf sessions, including surf theory and video analysis. We will also explore a large area of coast to seek out the best conditions for the group. To provide the best coaching experience only a maximum of 7 places are available. This tour is aimed at wave riders from an improver level and upwards, (experience of paddling outback) please contact us if you are unsure.
Equipment: It is recommended you bring your own equipment. A decent 4mm or 5mm wetsuit and boots are recommended (hood and gloves optional). The sea temperature is around 13 degrees in February (similar to north sea temperatures in September).
One versatile board that suits a range of conditions is ideal. We can transport up to 10 boards at one time. Please take fins off for transport purposes.
*If you don’t have your own kit and/or would like to rent please let us know what you need so we can arrange it with providers in Spain or from Coast to Coast (e.g wetsuits). The price of equipment rental is not included in the tour price (as an estimate put aside 70 Euros for a board).
Accommodation will be in a traditional rural house, fully equipped in order to relax after a good surf. You can self cater or have delicious food provided by Delia (Former Chef The Blue Parrot Cantina Edinburgh). This would be £80 for the week includes a tasty vegan friendly breakfast, pack lunch and dinner on each day of your trip (with an exception of one night when we’ll eat out).
There are flights from Edinburgh and London to Santander (Ryanair and Iberia). We advise booking flights early. All customers must have full travel insurance.
Pick up and Drop off: We will meet you at Santander airport on Sunday 19th of February stoked and ready to go. We
will drop you off on Sunday the 26th of February. Alternative travel arrangements might be possible,contact us if you need help/advise regarding this.Please note that at this time of year the weather can great 20 degrees or wet and temperate 11 degrees. However it is an ideal time to visit with consistent surf and fewer crowds than later in the year.
You can reserve your space by paying a deposit of £100 (non refundable). The trip must be paid for in full by the 23rd of January (this will be the remaining £379).
