  • Description


    Hi there! We are Andre, Per and Agata and we are looking for friendly volunteers to help with running a brand new hostel on Bore beach close to Stavanger. The place was opened in November 2018, we have rooms and 4 small apartments. Both Per and Andre are local surfers and the hostel has a surf vibe. We rent out surfboards, do surf courses and have some surf camps now and then. Beside surfers we also welcome many regular guests that don't surf.


    Additionally, since we don't currently have regular courses and full time instructors it's better if you surfed before and can be independent in water.

    Please not that your time off will be scheduled according to current situation number of guests and amount of work.
