Surf holidays might not immediately seem like a local, off the beaten track thing to do, but when you consider the fact that in many cultures surfing isn’t just a hobby, it’s a way of life, then suddenly a surfing holiday in Portugal, in Cornwall, or in Costa Rica takes on a whole different meaning.

More than just standing on a board, surfing is about testing your limits and redefining your comfort zone, practicing new techniques and, most importantly, sharing feedback and laughs with other surfers after a day in the waves together. Our surf camps let you experience all of that with local surf instructors showing you the best surf spots and helping you build confidence on your board. Return with new skills and a renewed zest for life after experiencing an authentic, local way of life that gets you immersed in nature and far from the daily rush of ordinary life.

Surfing holidays with an added rush

If you’re looking to activate your muscles and your mind, combine your surfing holiday with another hobby or passion.

Learn the Spanish lingo for ‘cowabunga’ before maneuvering the local waves on Spanish and surf holidays, take photos from your surfboard and the beach by combining photography and surfing, or spend the morning balancing on your yoga mat before balancing on your board in the afternoon during surf and yoga holidays.

Whatever your passions, you can find surfing holidays to indulge your active side, as well as a group of like-minded people to experience them with. Never settle for ordinary.

Who are our surf holiday guests?

Active types, beginners who’ve never ridden a board before, adrenaline junkies – everyone is welcome in the surf schools of our hosts.

You’ll meet people of all ages and nationalities, from solo travellers to couples to friends. Some devote their lives to chasing waves, others simply want to escape their 9-to-5 jobs for a while. Others still have never seen the ocean, much less surfed it, while some just want to prove that they can do whatever they set their mind to.

All that’s required is an abundance of energy, a willingness to learn and a refusal to be boxed in.

Is this you? It looks like you.

Thousands of people have already discovered that our eclectic mix of surf holidays are as diverse as the people who go on them. Come and join them.
