7 days of surfing & exploring beautiful Galicia

Our second camp in Galicia in 2021 is a good mix of free surfing and surf coaching to enjoy a wave-focused vacation in the west of Spain! In this 7 days intensive surf camp, we will coach you each day individually to help you step up your game. 

West Galicia has become our second home at the ocean over the past years. Located in a guest house close to the ocean, we will work on your skills one day at a time. From there we will either surf at one of the local spots or explore the west & north coast of Galicia and even Portugal to find the best waves for the day. With one session per day, you’ll have enough time to explore the surroundings, take a break at the beach, relax your muscles and get to know your fellow surfers.

We find the best spots for the day

With our base in West Galicia, we’ll travel to spots on the West and North coast of Galicia, or even the North of Portugal which is only 90 minutes away. This is a guarantee for good conditions, as we cover the two main directions for swells in western Europe!

Surf & surf some more

Our GaliciAddict Trip is run as an Intensive  Surf Camp which means you will be coached each day and have a second free surf session to implement the learned information alone or in the group. On day trips, we will spend the whole day together to surf and explore the spots we visit!

What a beautiful country

The westcoast of Galicia is extraordinary. The coastline is rugged and known for its sheltered „rias“ (bays) , the landscape is full of forests and mountains and the capital, Santiago de Compostela, is a centre of culture. Galicia delivers not only waves, but so many beautiful facets to enjoy.

Trip Details

Here’s what to expect

The Surfcoachings

The idea of our surfcoaching trips is to really improve your surfing. At the beginning of the trip, we set your individual goals which we will focus on for the week. One daily surfcoaching, backed up with ocean knowledgesurf theory and video analysis will make sure that we work on your skills through a variety of instruments to get the best out of it.

Even though we surf as a group of max. 6, surf coach Angie will teach each of you individually. This includes assessment of your surfing level, setting fixed goals, explaining drills and exercises, coaching in and outside of the water, demonstrating and explaining. In the water, we will also be joined by Josh and Ramon, two surf coaches from Galicia. Meaning you will get feedback from 3 different professional angles which will help you improve in various areas.

The Accomodation & Day to Day

From the moment the trip starts, we organise everything for you.

On day 1, will meet in Santiago de Compostela. We recommend arriving a day early to explore the city – the end of the way of St. James for all pilgrims. There, we will pick you up and bring you to our home in a beach town in West Galicia. You’ll stay in shared twin rooms. If this is not for you, you can also book a single room for an additional fee.

On each day, you will wake you up to a nutritious power breakfast and then either start with a surf coaching or a surf theory lesson. If we stay at one of our local home breaks, you can cook yourself some lunch at home. If we go somewhere else, we’ll take a nice break in one of the local restaurants which serve very affordable and delicious lunch plates. After that, it’s free surf time. You can spend the rest of the day in the water to take another surf to really implement what you’ve learned or just relax on the beach if you need a break. We finish the day with a re-energizing dinner served by our cook Linda, some nice sunset views from the garden and a match of table football.
