  • 01 Can I attend RSC if I have never surfed before?
    • About 80% of our learners have never had any previous contact with surfing. Our teaching method starts from zero but you need to be able to swim and to know that you will live and unforgettable experience.

  • 02 How and when are pick-ups and departures arranged?
    • If you choose PUBLIC TRANSPORT (plane, train or bus) for coming to RAZSURFCAMP in the Beach of Razo, Carballo, A Coruña, you have two options: go to the cities of A Coruña or Santiago de Compostela.

      Transfers from those cities to the Camp are included in the price if they are in the estipulated times.

      Pick-ups on the entry days, that’s the first day of the of the Camps (Camp 1: from the 6th to the 13th of July, pick-up is on the 6th) and the exit is on the last day of the Camp (Camp 1: from the 6th to the 13th of July, exit is on the 13th).

      Transfers are made with our fleet of authorized vehicles for transport and by a specialized transport company (Transportes Fermar s.l. Identification number B70351572, we have been working with them since 2005). There’are also local taxis wich have been working for us for the last 15 years.

      A CORUÑA

      Closest city to the Beach of Razo, 40 minutes away, it is always the best option. Transfers from and to A Coruña are included in the price.

      Pick-ups:

      From 9 in the morning (09:00). If you come earlier than that you have to check the pick-up time with us. Latest pick-up time is 9 in the evening (21:00), anything later than that, if it’s not because a delay in your train, plane or bus, the transfer cost would be at your own expense.

      Exit Transfers:

      Always from 9:00 to 21:00. Outside this times please consult us so we could provide taxi rides at a cheaper price than the usual fare (to A Coruña 40 €, to Santiago 50 €).

      SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA

      It’s 75 minutes away from the Camp, this option has a 20 € charge for person / traject.

      Pick-ups: From 10:00 to 20:00.

      Exit Transfers: From 9:00 to 21:00.

      Groups of 3 or more coming togheter can choose different pick-up and exit timetables. Normally for those groups we organize a taxi ride.

      If you are coming in your own vehicle your destination would be CARBALLO, once there you have to drive 9 kilometers to the Beach of Razo, where you will see the Camp at the end of the road that takes you to the beach. There’s no way to get lost there.

      To check the Camp exact location go to our website and check THE CAMP/Location. Any further questions you can contact us by email or phone at any time.

  • 03 Are there any lifeguards? I am worried about safety at a Surf Camp.
    • At Razo beach, swimming areas are marked and there are lifeguards all summer watching the areas where we Surf.

      Furthermore, our ratio of six learners per instructor allows us to easily watch over the entire group at all times. Outside lesson hours there will be a designated watched surfing area where there will be an instructor taking care of the safety of the learners.

      All our instructors are certified and have first aid knowledge. Learners are safe and insured from day one.

  • 04 What is the ideal age to attend the Camp?
    • To be able to overnight at the Camp the minimum age is 12 years old. For lessons the only requirement is to be able to swim.

      You set the maximum age… One is only as old as he feels.

  • 05 How much time is spent in the water per day?
    • Lessons are two hours a day with a group of six initiation level learners per instructor. After lessons, you may remain in the water in supervised areas by lifeguards and / or instructors. In the afternoon free surfing is also supervised. We designate an area to be controlled by instructors.

      You will have the equipment available all day long. How much time you Surf is only a function of your will and muscular endurance.

  • 06 What kind of supervision is available?
    • Adult supervision for kids is available 24 hours per day. At night there are caretakers in charge of keeping quiet at the Camp. We have a set of simple coexistence and safety rules, if those are broken, the learner will be returned home, at the cost of his parents if he is a minor, without any refunds. There will be no exceptions.

  • 07 If I can already Surf, should I also attend lessons?
    • If you have already reached a certain level you will join the improvement group. Here the ratio of learners per instructor changes but also the methodology of lessons.

      There’re daily analysis in digital video and personalized specific techniques for each learner.

  • 08 Can I bring my own equipment?
    • Of course, sometimes changing equipment once you are used to it is not a good idea.

      A common occurrence is that sometimes learners attempt to learn surfing by themselves using surfboards that are too advanced for their skills level. Surfboards that are too short, narrow or thin may only slow your progression.

      At RAZ SURF CAMP we have a very big quiver of surfboards, from 5’6 round nose to 12′ Stand Up boards. Your instructor will advise you on the equipment so you will have the board that best fits your surfing level, weight and height.

  • 09 May I go to the Camp by myself or should I bring company?
    • If you find an adventure partner you will share the joy and the journey, but many learners come alone their first time. In the following years they usually come with friends they made at the Camp. These friendships often last forever.

  • 10 Where are learners from?
    • Actually people come from everywhere. We are sometimes surprised. Most of them come from all parts of Spain, from both the coast and the inlands locations. At certain times we have many students from the north of Europe and also people that has crossed the ocean to be with us: USA, Canada, Mexico, etc.

  • 11 What should I bring?
      • ID / Passport
      • Health care documentation / EHIC
      • Private health insurance documentation, if you have it

      If you are a minor do not forget to bring the authorization form that we will send you via email properly filled and signed by your parents/guardians. It is mandatory in order to start activities. If you are under any medical treatment do not forget your medication.

      Regarding clothing, remember it is summer and beach wear will normally suffice. However, here in the north some warm clothing may be required at night. We recommend you a light pack as this is the best option. Do not forget to bring sunscreen, sandals, sunglasses and a beach towel. We will provide bed linen and bath towels.

  • 12 What payment methods are available?
    • The initial booking fee can be paid by bank transfer or credit card.

      The second payment should be made within 10 days before of the chosen Camp beginning. This can be made by bank transfer, credit card or by cash on the arrival day. If you plan to pay cash on arrival you should notify us within 10 days before of the chosen Camp beginning.

      It is mandatory that all fees are paid in full before engaging in any of the Camp activities.

  • 13 What kind of food is served?
    • We only use local products and the weekly menu is built around a balanced diet taking into account the effort you realize every day. You will enjoy two course meals plus desserts at lunch and dinner, a a complete breakfast and there’s fresh fruit available all day. The food is prepared by the catering company Manduca. Encarna and her cooks deliver home cooked meals based on the local fresh products of a land as gastronomically rich as it is Galicia and particularly the Bergantiños region.

  • 14 Can I attend two or more Camps in succession?
    • Yes, and actually more and more learners do so every day. It has a fixed 50 € fee that covers the days of transition between Camps. You will have housing, equipment and full meals available. You will also remain under our supervision if you are a minor.
