What is a Surf House?

The experience of surfing can become a time to share with others who also feel passionate about this sport, this can be achieved when you visit and stay in a Surf House.

The Surf House is a hostel format accommodation that specializes in hosting surfers, instructors and often groups of Surf Schools.

If you are motivated and want to start surfing a Surf House is the best place to stay, although you can also stay in these places if you plan to attend a festival to admire the maneuvers and prowess of the surfers, but the most common is to stay overnight to attend surf lessons.

History of the Surf Houses

The idea of the Surf Houses comes up like many innovative projects: when there is a need or a common practice is spread, that is the story we can tell you about the Surf Houses.

It all started with the groups of surfers who shared their passion for the waves and nature. They spent more and more time together and also gathered in certain places on the ideal surfing beaches.

Some owners of hostels and inns provided information and guidance to foreign tourists who were not fluent in the local language, and also referred them to routes to places where they would find the best “waves”.

Then they started offering food and the possibility of receiving lessons with qualified instructors, surfing materials and various services to make travelers share in a social environment and meet other surfers.

Also the Surf House became a great option for tight budgets, since they could offer from shared rooms and cabins with capacity for a certain number of people, thus reducing accommodation costs.

Today you can find Surf House type inns, apartments a few meters from the sea and in picturesque villages with a surfer and kitesurfer atmosphere, with a good selection of bars and restaurants, as well as different activities: hiking, fishing, mountain biking, among others.

Prices of a Surf House

Surfhouses are classified according to the size and number of people they can accommodate, so if you decide to stay in one of them you will only have to decide if you want to do it in a private or shared room.

Some are located in front of the beach, others require you to travel some kilometers before reaching the sea.

The cost of the accommodation is related to some elements: location, type of room (family, couple, single), kitchen, individual or shared bathroom, internet service, among others.

The most popular or cheapest services are in the order of 20 euros/day for shared rooms and up to 45 euros/day for private rooms. You can also save by staying in a private room for two people for approximately 60 euros/day and also opt for promotional offers of 4 nights for couples.

Remember that also people registered in Surfcamps or Surf Schools have priority to occupy the places, so the amount can vary considerably when it is part of that type of promotions, so think well and if you want to save a few euros start looking now.
