Star Surf Camps
Our Philosophy

How it all began

We, that is Joe, Sami & Pablo who all met at Plymouth Uni in the southwest of England, founded Star Surf Camps in 2009. We were brought together by our shared passion for surfing and travelling. Star Surf Camps started with one small surf camp in the summer of 2010 in Moliets in the southwest of France. Over the last 10 years, we have opened more surf, Yoga and SUP camps in Spain and the Canary Islands.

Staying true to our roots, we continue to teach surfing with the same passion we did when the business first started, still delivering surf holidays with a smile and still loving to welcome our surf camp guests into our surf camps personally.

Throughout our time in the surf industry, we have been fortunate enough to meet other surf camps and surf schools that share our passion for the sport of surfing. In order to offer our surf holiday guests a larger variety of surf destinations and surf spots, we’ve started to work together with these surf travel companies and surf schools, so you can join Star Surf in even more locations in one of our wonderful partner surf camps all around the world.

Our International Team

We couldn’t run the surf camps on our own anymore and now have an eclectic mix of on-site reception staff, surf instructors, chefs, camp team, local guides, surf photographers, Yoga instructors and lifeguards as part of our Star Surf Camps Team family.

Each individual brings their own stoke for surfing into this mix. Together, our passions for surfing provide the perfect surf camp environment to kick back in, meet new people, make new friends and have the surf holiday of a lifetime. Like our surf team, each of our surf camps has its own unique personality, so you can choose your surf camp safe in the knowledge that those working there and joining you will be like-minded surfers, keen to welcome you into the Star Surf Camps Family and share their passion for surfing with you.

Want to join the Team?

Recruitment for our summer surf camp season will start early next year. Management and full season roles will be published in January/February. Applications for Teamer positions will open in March.

All info will be published on our Jobs Page


Why learn to
surf with us?

We’re passionate about surfing

Here at Star Surf Camps, our passion for surfing and our dedication to provide both the best surf lessons and surfing holidays run deep in the veins of our founders. We pride ourselves on the quality of our surf lessons and the enthusiasm with which we deliver them.

We handpick each surf instructor based on their experience, qualifications and stoke. We only employ licensed and qualified surf instructors (ISA, ASI, SGB, FCS) as well as professional lifeguards (SLSGB). With us, you won’t find a too-cool-for-school attitude. Our surf instructors are in the water with you, high-fiving, encouraging and helping you every step of the way.

We’ve been running our surf camps for 10 years at some of the best surf beaches in Europe. What makes us unique is our focus on fun and expert surf coaching and our dedication to sharing this passion and the famous surfers’ lifestyle with all our surf holiday guests. We truly believe surfing is a sport best shared. With us, you can be sure to learn to surf in a safe environment, to be looked after every step of the way and to be leaving the water stoked after your surf lesson.

In both our own surf camps as well as in our trusted partner camps, we guarantee to find the best surf spots suited to your surfing ability and your budget to ensure you get to enjoy an amazing, care free and unforgettable surf holiday!
