Surf & More Surf

Two weeks of two surf sessions a day

Welcome to our annual 14 days intensive surfcamp in beautiful Galicia. As we unfortunately were not able to run our 2020 camp in our favourite part of Spain we are now double excited to invite you to join us.

Surf – eat – surf – sleep, repeat. That’s our intensive surfcamp in West Galicia which focuses on really working on your skills.
With one surfcoaching and a free session per day, you’ll be able to maximise your surf skills in only two weeks time. We take care of your well-being with a cosy accommodation with seaview and two meals per day, so you can completely concentrate on the waves.

From Spain to Portugal

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

More Surfing, more Improvement

We split our day in two sessions: A surfcoaching session and a free session. This way, you can concentrate on your goals that we define beforehand during the surfcoaching session, but also let loose and just enjoy on the second session.

Also, with a total of 4 surf coaches on the trip, you will get feedback from different professional angles

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.  This intensive surfcoaching trip will boost your surfing to the next level (or two). Loads of watertime through daily coaching session and freesurf, supported by out of the water surftheory, video analysis and surfskate sessions.

Even though we surf as a group of max. 6, surfcoach Angie will teach each of you individually. This includes assesssment of your surfing level, setting fixed goals, explaining drills and exercises, coaching in and outside of the water, demonstrating and explaining.

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 pilgers. 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, we will wake you up with a nutritious power breakfast and then travel to the first surfspot of the day, chosen by our local guides to find the best conditions. If we stay at our homebreaks, we 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. 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.

Is this trip for me?

#Galiciando will be run as a 14-days Intensive Surfcamp. On each day, we will coach you individually within the group and head for a free surf session later, so expect your surfing to improve immensely. We use direct & indirect coaching techniques, in and outside of the water.

With two sessions per day, this trip is only for people who really want to focus on their surfing. There won’t be a lot of free time left for other activities, especially since we will also go on day trips to the North of Spain or Portugal when the waves are good. 

This NOMB Surfcoaching trip is open to surflevel 2-5, so experienced beginners and up.

Mimimum requirements: 

  • Pop-Up in white wash, maybe even the first small green waves
  • Shifting the weight on the board, maybe even slight turning
  • Surf Time 90% 90%
  • Free Time 10% 10%
  • Minimum Surflevel 30% 30%
