Imparare a navigare a San Sebastian

A guide to surfing in San Sebastian to get you ready for your first lesson.

JOSEPHINE RYAN MURPHY

San Sebastian is famous for its beautiful beaches and its pumping waves. Here at Stoke, we enjoy both of those things and so we set up the San Sebastian Surf Camp. From beginners to shredders, we’ve managed to put together something pretty great here in the Basque country and you should definitely come and enjoy it with us. For anyone planning on coming here and learning to surf for the first time, we’ve made a little guide to prepare you for your first surf lesson. Have a read and then come visit us!

The Rundown

Before you go near the water, you’ve got to go through the spiel. You’ll be introduced to your board and your surf instructor. You’ll have to smile through the deep struggle of carrying an eight-foot board so you don’t look like too much of a newbie in front of your – more than likely –  attractive surf instructor as you head down to the beach. Once you’re down there, you’ll get a run through of everything you need to know; you’ll practise “popping up” on the beach and get some theory about the currents and rips in the water. All in all, it’ll sound simple enough. Unfortunately, most things are not as easy as they sound.

Getting Into And Out Of The Wetsuit

Clambering in and out of the suffocating rubber body-cage is maybe the worst part about surfing. Luckily in San Sebastian during summer it’s usually warm enough to wear just a shorty but if you can’t handle colder waters, or head there out of the summer months, you’ll have to deal with the horrors of a full wetsuit. Squishing all your parts into the leg and arm holes isn’t too bad, as long as you don’t get your hair caught in the zipper. Getting it off, however, is a whole different story. You’ll be incredibly tired after hours of paddling around and if you’re in any way cold, trying to grip your fingers into the neoprene to pull yourself out of your rubbery tomb is pretty painful. Eventually you’ll free your arms from their damp prison and that’ll seem like a good time to give in for a while and just take a break from your wetsuit escape and lie in the sand defeated.

Paddling Out

Get ready to swallow a serious amount of salty water. Waves that from the shore looked pretty tame will suddenly be all up in your face and pushing you around all over the place; it’ll be impossible to figure out where there hell you even are. Your dreams of looking like some hot surfer girl or guy will be crushed as your hair is matted to your face and you flail around gasping with snot pouring out your nose. However, this is all a part of it – every surfer went through it. Chill out, there are plenty of beginners in San Sebastian and you can be guaranteed that even though you may feel like you’re making a fool of yourself, no-one except your surf instructor is paying any attention and they’ve seen it a thousand times before. Just learn to laugh at yourself and enjoy it, you little snot monster.

Your First Wipeout

You’ll feel the board start to move under you and you’ll assume it can’t be that hard. Clambering up on the board you won’t even have time to figure out how it all went wrong. You’ll fall backwards or nose dive or maybe just faceplant off the side, and the whole world will become a spinning, blue, watery hell. For what feels like an eternity – but is actually just a few seconds – you’ll spin around in a mess of flailing limbs and panic, eventually surfacing and being completely fine. You’ve successfully survived your first wipeout and it wasn’t even that bad, you’ll be a wipeout pro by the end of the lesson; you can handle anything those waves have to throw at you.

Your First Wave

The best feeling ever! You’ll feel like you can do literally anything. Your surf instructor gave your board a good shove and it somehow all finally came together. You’re flying, the wind is in your hair, the sun is reflecting off the crystal clear blue water onto your already cherry-red face. You’ll throw your arms in the air, going against everything your surf instructor taught you about your stance on the surfboard and watch San Sebastian’s beautiful coastline go sideways as you probably fall straight off but who cares! You can surf now.

The Recovery

You made it! Think about how far you’ve come today, the things you’ve been through. Your whole body probably aches and you’re probably hungrier than you’ve ever been before. You know what you need right now? A good meal and a shit tonne of alcohol. Celebrate how great you did today! Head back to the San Sebastian surf camp, get a good hot meal served up to you and spend the rest of the night potabile so much that you completely forget everything you just learnt, you’ve earned it.

To join us for some San Seb surfing, come hang out at our surf camp!
