Learn to Surf
as a Family

Surfing holidays for the entire family


We have been organising surf holidays for more than 10 years and, just like many of our surf camp guests, we have grown older and started families. Needless to say, we still love surf camp life! And wouldn’t miss a summer camping by the sea for the world. If you’re looking for a fun-filled holiday with lots of beach time and outdoorsy fun in the sun, you have come to the right place.

With us, you can learn to surf as a family. We tailor our surf holiday packages to each of our families individually. You can book family surf lessons for you and your children if you want to learn to surf together as a family. Or for larger groups, we can also offer child-friendly surf lessons specifically designed for the little ones in the family. As parents, you can be sure that we work with professional surf instructors who make their surf lessons fun and safe. All our surf and SUP instructors are experienced, licensed and have a lifeguarding qualification. 

However, our surf holiday packages for families are not just for little ones, but also for grown-ups. As parents, we invite you to take part in all our day and evening activities. There’s plenty to choose from, from beach yoga and volleyball to Wine & Cheese evenings and Open Mic Nights for the musicians amongst you. Our day trips are also suitable for the whole family.

 

Contact Justine with your enquiry below. We look forward to hearing from you.

Accommodation Options
For Families

Mobile Homes (France only)


We have set up two family mobile homes in a quieter part of our surf & yoga camp in Moliets-Plage. Our mobile homes are bookable for a minimum of 3 guests and sleep a maximum of 5 guests. If you’re travelling with a family of more than 5, we happily reserve the nearest tents or the mobile home next door for you as well.

Our mobile homes have a large covered terrace outside that fits a 4 seater camping bench with table. From the terrace, French doors lead into a fully-equipped kitchenette. To the right of the kitchenette is the main living area with a table, two chairs and bench seat. There are two bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with two single beds. Then there’s a sofa bed (for one) in the living area. Bedding is included in your surf holiday package price. Further to the bedrooms, there is a shower room as well as a separate WC with wash-basin off the main living area.

Tipi Tents


In both our surf camp locations in France and in Spain we can offer family-friendly accommodation in our bohemian tipis. Each tipi and decking are custom-fitted with an overlap that wraps over and around the wooden flooring for a snug fit at the base to ensure rain stays out and you dry inside. There are power inlets at the back for your electronic devices and mesh pocket pouches by the bed. With a 3 metre head height and heavy duty netting, the tipis offer great style, bug protection and a cool breeze.

Our tipis can be set up as twins with two single beds or as a couples with one double bed. For added privacy and comfort, each tent has a private porch decking area and plenty of space underneath it to store your surf equipment. We also provide high-quality memory foam mattress which are allergy-free, high in density and super comfy. You can bring your own bedding or hire bedding for the week from us.

Bell Tents


Available in both our surf camps in Spain and France, you and your family can stay in our spacious bell tents. Designed to sleep up to 8 people, we set them up as couples (with one double mattress) or twins (with two single mattress). Families with one child can choose to share one tent.

All bell tents have a centre pole, an interior mesh zip curtain behind the door curtains and come with mash windows at the base for better ventilation. The tents are tall enough to stand a surfboard in and wide enough for some morning yoga stretches.

All our bell tents are equipped with raised wooden bed frames, an electricity socket and lighting for that little bit of extra comfort. We also provide high-quality memory foam mattress which are allergy-free, high in density and super comfy. You can bring your own bedding or hire bedding for the week from us.
