Obviously the surf board is the key element in surfing, so our surf camp has a large gamma of different surfboard characteristics and sizes. Dreamsea Surf Camp San Vicente de la Barquera staff will provide you the perfect surfboard for every step of your learning process.
It is the oldest form of gliding through the water, in which the surfer uses a paddle to move while standing on a surfboard. The practice of this sport gives us a number of advantages and benefits to health, both physically and emotionally.
Grab a paddle board and explore the exotic San Vicente de la Barquera river while enjoying its calm waters and put all of your senses into action.
Another key element for enjoying the surf are the wetsuits. Those suits keep your body warm and increase your buoyancy, so you will be able to spend more time in the ocean. During the first day at the surf camp you will receive your wetsuit clean and dry.
In order to enjoy the surf lessons to the max, we have different sizes and models, so if you don´t feel comfortable with your suit, just ask us for another.
Take advantage of your free time, and jump into learning this acrobatic and aggressive sport. Our surf camp in San Vicente de la Barquera has bodyboards and flippers, take them and start by yourself or arrange some lessons with our teachers.
Don´t worry if you don´t know anything about this sport. The surf camp team will teach you the rules, and will give you the basic notion of beach volley. Of course we will use the field also for other beach sports, like Brazilian footvolley.
Don’t ruin your gym routine and keep on working out in our open air gym.
Also known as balance board, is a device used for recreation, balance training, athletic training, brain development, therapy, musical training and other kinds of personal development. It is a lever similar to a see-saw that the user usually stands on with the left and right foot at opposite ends of the board. The rider’s body must stay balanced enough to keep the board’s edges from touching the ground and to keep from falling off the board.
Balance is one of the key skills for surfing, you may use the surf camp balance boards for improving your balance skills.
The flying disc, also known as “Frisbee”, is one of the most enjoyable sports you can play on the beach. Just make some free throws with the lads, or let´s organize an ultimate match.

Train and improve your balance, essential for surfing, while having fun with the slackline.
If you are spending all the time at the beach, you better borrow a beach umbrella. Sun protection is essential, especially between 12:00-17:00. Just take one of our free-use beach umbrellas and enjoy the beach.

Relax and replenish your mind and body through yoga. Yoga is a commonly known generic term for its physical, mental, and spiritual discipline which origins lie in ancient India.
