  • Description


    Hi I'm Guille. I am a surf instructor and own a surf school in La Pedrera. I have been working and living here for the past 20 years. I am building a surf camp next to my house to host all my clients that come surfing. I live with my dog lulu who also surfs with me. We have a really chill pace in La Pedre, I have many friends around, we often play music and enjoy.

    There is my house with two rooms, kitchen and toilet, and one sepparte private room with toilet in front of the house and another kitchen and toilet with shower in the back of the house that are available for use when staying in the tents.
    I have a big fire place in the middle were we cook pizza, fish or asado and play music under the stars.

    You can accommodate were you prefer, this is a surfcamp but you can also have your privacy if that's what you are after.
    I need some help for the upcoming season ( Jan-Feb). The tasks are vey simple and easy and is mainly general maintenance (cleaning, painting, repairing )

    I offer three meals and accomodation in exchange to 4 - 5 hours help for 5 days a week and then you have your two days off to enjoy how you like. I usually eat a lot of veggies, fish and some meat. I have no problem in having vegetarians, maybe just need some help with ideas!

    Send me a message if you are interested, saludos!

  • Help


    I need help setting everything up for the upcoming summer seasons. This is mainly general maintenance tasks in the surfcamp, some building with wood (fixing some old wood boards and building some new parts), some basic electricity tasks like replacing not working plugs, some painting. Some gardening, planting new plants and cleaning old ones. There is no need for experience in construction but it will be a plus. You won´t be doing anything you don't want to, we can always talk everything. I just need some extra help with really easy jobs anyone can do so I can do the hard stuff.
