Driving force behind the Surfing Zumaia project

Behind a professional surfer there is a lot of work and sacrifice, although the whole process has been a pleasure for me. I started surfing at Itzurun beach with my father when I was 6 years old and I have always had and still maintain that special connection with the sea. My grandfather taught me to fish octopuses, a special Zumaia tradition that I still maintain. If you come to visit us, I will recommend you a place where you can try the famous octopus soup from our town. In terms of my sport career, I grew up on the beach of Zarautz, where I trained with professional trainers such as Aitor Francesena “Gallo” or Ibon Amatriain. Now, I have decided to open my own surf school, where I try to transmit and teach everything that surfing has given me.


Project manager

My life has been related to the sea since I was a kid. I have surfed since I was 9 years old, both in Zumaia and Zarautz. I am an Early Childhood Educator, Coordinator and Inscturctor of Leisure and Free Time activities. I have more than 11 years of experience working with children, and I am the manager and instructor in our Surf Camp program. However, I also work as project manager, offering our clients the opportunity to have an unforgettable experience at our surf school.



Surf, Bodyboard & Paddle Surf instructor

I have grown up in a surfer family with which I have traveled looking for the best surfing waves, and participating in surf and bodyboard competitions for as long as I can remember. I also like to play handball and trail running in the mountains around my hometown. These activities and especially the ocean helps me disconnecting while I have fun and collect magical memories. Now as a surf, bodyboard or paddle surf instructor, I want my students to feel the same way I feel when I am in the water and to provide an unforgettable experience surfing a wave in a unique environment such as the beach of Itzurun, surrounded by the Flysch. I love what I do and I want to encourage you to try any of these sports, I guarantee that you are going to love it!


Surf Camp instructor

Since I was a child, I have been so lucky to be able to grow up in this magical place, surrounded by the Flysch. I am Industrial Design Engineering and Product Development student. I like to share my values and knowledge with the children at Surfing Zumaia. I have been so lucky to have the opportunity to learn surfing with my family, and would like to teach children all I have learned. I hope they will have the same connection that I have with the ocean in the future.  I love the project of Surfing Zumaia, it fills me so much and I hope to contribute my bit on it.


Surf Camp instructor

My years of experience with sports and the connection with nature have been essential in terms of my training. I have a degree in Physical Activity and Sports Sciences and I also have a degree in Early Childhood Education. I am also a Leisure and Free Time instructor and I work on it every Easter and Summer Surf Camps at Surfing Zumaia. My goal at school is to be able to transmit all the knowledge learned during all these years to the little (and not so little) ones, bringing my best and spending unforgettable moments. I like to practice paddle surfing while showing you the special corners of this magical town of the Basque coast.


Surf Camp instructor

Since I was a kid, I have been lucky to belong to an environment where nature is very important. I have learned to enjoy different natural spaces in the sea and the mountains. I am an active and spontaneous person and I love children. I am studying primary school teaching, and through my work, I try to transmit my values and principles to children while having fun. The sea and the surroundings of Zumaia have always been special to me, it is where I have grown up and I have learned to enjoy it and I would love to be able to enjoy it now as a monitor.
