The surf camp in Somo
Can you tell us about surfing at home?
Surfing in Somo is an institution, there are boards in every house, every generation of surfers and the days are punctuated by the swell conditions...
Day off... at the surf camp
When is the best time to go?
For the intermediate skiers, spring and autumn are very good periods, for the beginners, summer is the best time to discover the first sensations of sliding in a festive atmosphere!
Preparing for a surf trip on the Spanish coast
Can you give us a spotlight for beginners, intermediates and experts?
We are lucky to have a spot that brings together, depending on the conditions, small waves, but also big swells depending on where you are. It's also a spot that holds its size!

Describe your accommodation on Somo?
You have everything you need in the same building. The surf school, the beach within walking distance, good food and big parties with all nationalities!
Do Somo's spots have any special characteristics? What are its dangers?
There is no particular danger, you must know your limits and respect others.
Somo is the most popular beach and it is here that the first surf companies, surf schools and surf camps were established.

The atmosphere is international! There is something for everyone in our Spanish surf camp... enjoy and a lot of fun!

This is the spot where I grew up and where I gave my first surf lessons. I have a particular affection for the friendly and family spirit that emanates from it.

We go to Santander once a week, we have a small boat where we organise parties too...
What advice would you give to a globetrotter?
Come and enjoy the atmosphere created by surfers for surfers...
In a few words, why come to you?
