I am a Basque native, in love with my country, culture and gastronomy. I have worked for 7 years in a surf school of San Sebastian. But I get tired of working always on the same beach, with limited time, and with overcrowding of surfers.
So in 2015 I started offering artisan, unique and authentic experiences in my own. Aiming to offer the possibility to enjoy feeling and living, the true essence of the Basque Country, out of the commercial and away from the tourist masses.
And like surfing, it is the most special pleasure I have ever known. I felt the need and the desire to offer surf trips along the Basque coast, where you could enjoy the pure essence of surfing.

I had a great time with Julen. From start to finish, everything is perfect. We had coffee and pastries on top of a cliff overlooking the sea where you can see the surf conditions. Then after that, we went to the beach and spent the whole day there.. just surfing, eating, relaxing and just having fun! Julen is a great surf coach. He lets me know what I should do to improve and I always felt safe when I’m in the water with him. He prepared a very delicious lunch for us and also gave me a lot of information about the Basque Country and history of pinxtos. He’s also taught me some important Basque words. Julen is very fun to be with and he’s very kind. It was really a great day for me. I wish I can go back to San Sebastián again soon so I can repeat this tour. Eskerrik asko, Julen!

This was my favorite experience in San Sebastian - Julen was a really great host, he took care of everything including getting us wetsuits, surfboards, and showing us the best place to surf for our skill level. He is a great surfing teacher as well. He even prepared delicious breakfast, lunch, and snacks for us.

Julen is an INCREDIBLE instructor and person in general. In terms of the surfing instruction itself, I went from barely being able to balance while paddling on my stomach to catching and riding waves! He's a great teacher. In terms of the interaction among the group, Julen really made me feel welcome and brought a small group of strangers together. Honestly, this was my favorite experience during my 10-day trip to Spain. 10/10 recommendation.

Totally recommended! Spent a lovely day with a nice group of people, the surfing was great and the food Julen served couldn't have rounded off the day any better.

For someone who has never been the athletic type or had never tried surfing before, this was a phenomenal day! Julen did an amazing job at making everyone feel welcome, and allowed us to experience the Basque Country like a local. I have amazing pictures from our day that still do not do the experience justice. This was definitely the highlight of my time in Spain! You would be a fool not to spend a day with Julen!
