STOKE TRAVEL’S COMMON SENSE GUIDE TO STAYING SAFE

*If at any time you feel unsafe, please don’t hesitate to contact the onsite Noble Security team, or any member of the Stoke Travel crew who will radio for security.

As far as situations go, a Stoke Travel trip is amongst the safest. Unlike in the ‘real’ world, everybody here seems intent on having a good time and doing so with new and old friends – your fellow Stokies are way more likely to hold your hair back when you puke than lift your wallet.

That being so, we’re more in danger of hurting ourselves while on a Stoke Travel trip than falling foul of our fellow travelers. Here’s a quick little guide to partying safe with Stoke Travel.

 

  1. Drink plenty of water.
    You’re going to drink plenty of beer and sangria, and you’re going to have a plenty big hangover, but you can really limit it by smashing a few cups of water throughout the day and evening.
  2. Eat!
    We’re going to hook you up with a hearty breakfast and dinner, and as the bare minimum that should keep your stomach lined and engine running. Do not skip these two meals, even if you are suffering horrifically from one of the aforementioned hangovers. We also strongly advise getting a lunch in there too, maybe even every day.
  3. Zip your tent up when you’re in it and when you leave it.
    Seems basic, but you’d be surprised how often drunk us forgets to do this. When you get in your tent of a night make sure you zip it up to prevent unexpected rain showers from disturbing your slumber. Same goes for when you leave your tent. It’ll take two seconds tops to zip it up, but that might save you from wet clothes, chafe, and maybe even pneumonia. If you also brought your favourite pair of socks and want to make sure they are safe, you are able to purchase a lock from the guru tent for only 5€.
  4. Don’t be a creep.
    Like, seriously, has that ever worked out for you? Similarly, if you see somebody being a creep and making people uncomfortable let us know and we’ll have a friendly word to them. Sometimes they just don’t realise how gross they are.
  5. No means no, but more than that consent matters.
    At a very basic level if you hit on somebody and they say no then you’ve just got to cop that. They’re just not that into you, sucks for about three seconds, but you’re literally surrounded by hundreds of young, like-minded travellers. Suck it up and move on. And when you do find somebody who’s into you and you want to move through the bases, make sure you get consent. It really, really, really, really, really does matter.  
  6. If you see somebody having a bad time, make sure they’re ok.
    We are all brothers and sisters and gender non-specific relations out here, so if you see somebody struggling in any way check on them, grab a Stoke staff member and just do what any decent human being would do.

Staying safe at Stoke Travel is super easy, but sometimes we get a little out of control and forget the basics. If you ever find yourself in any kind of situation do not hesitate to contact Stoke staff, or security, and we’ll sort you out immediately. We’re here to help – help you have the best time possible. Mwah.

What to Bring

  • Warm clothes (it can get a bit chilly at night)
  • Condoms (better safe than sorry, right?)
  • Beachwear
  • Sunscreen
  • Portable phone charger
  • A camera for those aw-ha moments!

Itinerary

Itinerary

1

Day 1 – Morning

Head to your pre-arranged pick up at San Pelaio Train/Bus Station in Zarautz at 9 am, 1 pm or 7 pm. And jump on our surf bus straight to the beach, or up to the surf house to check in. 

2

Day 1 – Afternoon

We’ll either have a simple to-go style lunch in the sunshine down at the beach, or back up to the surf casa for a hot lunch and a cold sangria. If you’re feeling bendy join a yoga class on our yoga deck; maybe you want to head out hiking through the Basque hills that our surf house backs onto; you can choose to go into town and explore, join in on a Spanish Class, head back down to the beach for another surf, or just relax! In the afternoon you will most likely find yourself hanging out at the house watching the sun go down over a few drinks and sharing stories or becoming lord of the ping pong table.

3

Day 1 – Evening

We’ll head into San Sebastian’s Semana Grande festival for some more drinks, music and exploring. There’s live music, incredible firework displays, and the street’s packed with dancing locals and tourists alike enjoying the festivities.

 

4

Day 2 – Morning

Wake up to a homely, cooked breakfast down in our chillout area and exchange stories from last night’s antics, read the surf report and get excited to head out surfing. Jump on our surf bus and enjoy the ride down through the national park to the beach, grab your board and either scout out the best banks on the beach or head into your lesson with one of our surf instructors.

5

Day 2 onwards – Eat. Sleep. Surf. Rave. Repeat
