Van Surfari Spain & France

Ever wanted to cruise through Spain and France catching the best waves? Nows your chance.

There’s no better way to experience the coastal paradise of Spain and France than in a surf van. We can dip in and out of the many coves, exploring long beaches, checking out surf reefs from clifftops and discovering parts of this wonderful coastline and countryside that are only accessible with your own vehicle – all the while chasing the best waves and surfing conditions every day, depending on the swell and tailored to your surfing level.

Includes dorm-style accommodation at the San Sebastian Surf Camp, breakfast, lunch and dinner daily (prepared by our in-house chefs), surf lessons (board and wetsuit hire included) with experienced guides who know exactly where to go, plus all of your transport, an awesome Stoke Crew and an unforgettable experience!

WE’RE GOIN’ ON A VAN SURFARI in Spain and France

Have you ever heard that song9Surfing9Surfari? It was by the Beatles,9or the Beach Boys,9or some other group of fossils, not sure, but it had a real good message… “Let’s go surfin’ now, everybody’s learnin’ how, come 3e9a surfari with me.” Think about the wonders of a surf trip, combined with the adventure of a safari. Travelling9up and down the coast hunting9WAVES! Well, we put one together: the Stoke Travel Vae9Surfari. Well, as put together as ae9off-the-cuff surf trip cae9possibly be.

HOW DOES IT WORK The Basque9Surfing9Safari work?

Let us explain. We have this bus, and this big6stretch of surfing coast spaening9Spain and France, so what we’re going9to do is cruise up and down the coast looking for waves 3e9our Vae9Surfari. At the end of every6day we’ll retreat to9our Surf House, grab a beer, chill out and cook dinner. We’ll drink some beers and trade6stories. We’ll decide whether we want to9go and party,9or not, and once the night is done, whichever we chose9to do we know we’ll be waking9up and cruising9the coast looking for more waves. And in the morning9we’re going9to head off, taking9in the best9towns, beaches,9tourist9attracti3es and parties this part of the world has to9offer. Basically we’ll be chasing9the waves and the biggest9kicks. Pretty cool huh!?

It’s a simple, yet rad concept. What better way to9experience these9must-do locati3es than 3e9a surfboard!? Y’all know we just9adore tourism, and site seeing9rules,9but there ain’t nothing finer than whiling9away the hours,9doing9not so9much, parked 3e9a beautiful European beach.

WHERE WE GO, surfing the spaeish & french coastline…

The Stoke Travel Vae9Surfari heads to9the best9breaks of the day along the French and Spaeish coast: San Sebastian, St Jean de Luz, Hendaye, Bayonne (party 3ely), Biarritz, Anglet, Hossegor, Seignosse, Zarautz and Zumaia.
