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 Cantabria staff will provide you the perfect surfboard for every step of your learning process.


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.

Skateboards and Longskates

Beach Volley

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.

Table tennis

Improve your reflexes and challenge the other campers to a match. Our surf camp has its own table tennis. Join the surf camp tournament, or just play during your free time.

Indo board

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.

Flying discs

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.

Yoga lessons


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. One of the really good things about yoga applied to surf is that yoga is a perfect complement for such an all around athletic sport. You will stretch and try positions that will help your body compensate for the exertion from surfing.

Choose between two yoga lessons packets. You can add your yoga lessons to your weekly schedule for only 30€ a three hour course or 50€ for five hour course.
