  • 13. Can you go to two camps or more in a row?
    • Yes, two camps can be done in a row or more, in fact more and more campers do it. A week goes by very fast!

  • 14. Where do people come from?
    • Right now, the camper who ranks number 1 for having enjoyed the largest number of camps with us is Italian.

      It really comes from everywhere, sometimes we are surprised. The vast majority comes from Spain from both the coast and the interior. In certain seasons we have enough foreigners from Italy, France, northern Europe and also students who have crossed the pond to be with us: United States, Canada, Mexico

  • 15. Can I attend to Raz SurfCamp if I’ve never surfed before?
    • A very high percentage of our students have never had any contact with surfing. You will find that except for veterans and those who come to improve, who work differently, the vast majority are in the same situation, first experience with surfing.

      Our initiation method starts from scratch to legend and the goal is to enjoy the waves and lay the foundations for everything you need to know to enjoy surfing on other beaches. You just have to know how to swim and be willing to the effort of learning, always in a safe and fun way.

  • 16. Is there a lifeguard? 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.

  • 17. Which is the ideal age to go to the camp?
    • To spend the night in the camp the minimum age is 12 years. Last year, the average age was 15 years in July. We are not fortune tellers, but the average age is likely to remain the same for next season.

      For surf lessons the only essential requirement is to know how to swim.

      The maximum age? That you put it. One is just how old it feels.

  • 18. How much time a day will I be in the water?
    • Surf lessons are two hours per day with a surf instructor for every six people. After the surf lesson, 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 material at your disposal throughout the day so it only depends on your desire and the endurance of your muscles, there is one that surfs 8 hours a day.

  • 19. What kind of supervision is there?
    • There is 24-hour adult supervision. At night there are supervisors responsible for the calm and peace of the camp. We put some simple rules of coexistence and security. If someone break them, the camper will go back home at the expense of their parents if they are minors, without the right to any refund. We make no exceptions here.

  • 20. If I am already a good surfer, should I go to class?
    • If you have already reached a certain level you will join the advanced class. Here the ratio of learners per instructor changes but also the methodology of lessons.

      You’ll have daily video analysis and specific personalized technique.

  • 21. Can I bring my own equipment?
    • Of course, sometimes changing the surfboard once you are used to it is not good.

      It can also happen that many times when you start surfing without going through a school you try to go with boards that are too advanced for our level, surfboards that are too small, thin or narrow that all they do is ballast your progression.

      In Raz SurfCamp we have a lot of surfboards tables from round nose 5’6 to longboards of 9 ’. Your instructor will guide you on the material you need so that you always have the surfboard that best suits your level, weight and height.

  • 22. Should I go accompanied?
    • If you find an adventure partner you will share the illusion and the trip, although many students the first time come alone. The following year they usually return with people they have met at the Camp and with those who have made friends. Friendships that in many cases last a life.

  • 23. What do I have to bring?
      • ID or Passport
      • Social Security Card.
      • Private medical insurance card, if you have one.
      • FFP2 mask.

      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.

      What should not be missing in your small SUITCASE?

      • Protective cream, flip flops, beach towel, swimsuit or bikini
      • The basics for body hygiene (shampoo, toothbrush and toothpaste, gel …)
      • If you follow any medical treatment, do not forget the medication.
      • Sweatshirt, t-shirts, long pants (best tracksuit) and sports shoes. In Razo, it is normal to enjoy warm weather with beach temperatures during the day, but at night it cools and summer storms can arise at any time, so it is not bad to also pack a light raincoat.
      • Sufficient FFP2 masks for the entire stay.
      • A bottle or thermos to keep the water cool.
      • We also recommend that campers bring the pain reliever that they usually take at home for menstruation discomfort or any other minor ailment in their toiletry bag since we cannot administer any type of medication without first going through the emergency service of the nearby outpatient clinic.
      • Earplugs, in order to avoid otitis in surf baths, especially for prone students.
  • 24. 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 complete breakfast and there’s fresh fruit available all day. The food is cooked by the catering La Quinta, who develop a very homemade cuisine based on fresh produce from a land as gastronomically rich as Galicia.

  • 25. What happens if I leave the Surf Camp?
    • You will not be entitled to any refund once the surf camp has started, or leave it by his own will, their parents or their legal representatives. It is understood by the concept «start of the surfcamp», the first day of the camp. The expenses generated by the return trip, if any, will be borne by the parents or legal guardians. The participant will return to his home without the right to a later claim or any economic compensation for the days and services not enjoyed.

      In the case of the camper not being able to participate in the chosen camp due to mobility restrictions indicated by the Government, the amount of the booking would also be returned, even if it was already within the commented period of 15 days before the start of the reserved course.

      In the case of having already paid the total quantity, this amount will also be fully returned. For our part, we are committed to implementing all possible safety and hygiene measures to guarantee a safe experience, developing a specific protocol for each moment, taking into account the recommendations of the health authorities point by point.
