Learn Spanish and learn how to surf for free

We’re sure that many of you are already planning your summer holidays, working out whether you really want to spend the summer months discovering new places, practising your favourite sports or travelling to new countries and improving your language skills.

Here at Closeteachers, we’ve made it easy for you: now, you can combine everything you want to do into one trip! For instance, you could study a Spanish course in Spain, whilst at the same time enjoying the surfing season. The experience will be double the fun, because as well as learning Spanish in an immersion context you will probably meet native speakers as mad about surfing as you are. Spain (and the Iberian Peninsula in general) has endless sandy beaches, the perfect place to go surfing. Many surf fans make the ‘surfer’s pilgrimage’ to the Atlantic coast, seeking out the legendary waves of the Cantabrian Sea.

Surfers from all around the world come to Galicia, Asturias, Cantabria and the Basque Country every year in search of the most famous waves of the surfing world. What’s more, these legendary waves are not just for surfing experts; surfing is a sport that everyone can enjoy. There are many surf schools throughour Spain which offer courses for absolute beginners, and which offer kit and boards for hire at a modest price. In the last few years, surfing has really taken off in the Basque Country.

Many surf enthusiasts consider the coastline between Biarritz and Bilbao to be the best in Spain, and possibly even in Europe. The Basque country also boasts Mundaka beach, legendary among surfing enthusiasts for its “famous wave”. Your summer could be all planned out for you! What are you waiting for?
