  • Description


    This is a family business that started in the summer of 2013 based on the passion that we had for surfing, education, the ocean and sports.
    The family has been surfing for more than three decades, traveling all around the world in search for waves and enjoying the lifestyle of this ancient sport. That is why we believe that
    everybody can learn to surf and we try to teach not just the sport itself but also transmit the philosophy that comes with it.

    Now with all our experience in the field, we are expanding from a surfing school to a summer campus in which we want kids and adults to live an amazing adventure, to create memories for the rest of their lives. That is why, little by little we are trying to create a team of amazing unique people. To create an environment in which people can learn and connect with the ocean and nature while having fun and sharing. Here, they will have the chance to learn and enjoy surfing, bodysurfing, open water swimming, skateboarding, surf-skate and to play as many sports as they want: table tennis, football, rugby, volleyball, basketball, badminton... To create new friendships and become part of the family.

    Our Surf House is located in the beautiful coast of Asturias, right next to a picturesque fisherman's village and two of the most beautiful beaches of the region.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️Looking mainly for a SURFING INSTRUCTOR during AUGUST. *️️️️️*️️️️️

    There are two different positions that can be accepted and require different skills so make sure to read and make sure the position can suit you:
    Volunteer position: Marketing (only September)
    Paid positions: Surfing Instructor (for teaching only if you speak fluent Spanish)

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ The surfing instructor position is only available for those who speak fluent Spanish, can surf at least intermediate level and have experience in the ocean. You can choose being a full time instructor (8 hours a day almost everyday) as part of the crew in which case you'll be paid a salary, or just help around in some lessons (4 hours a day) in which case you won't be earning a salary.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ The paid positions will get at least the minimum Spanish wage (contact us to know more). Also can be done as volunteers, but assuming the working schedule.

    For us the attitude is key, we would like to receive people that are happy, joyful, proactive, loving, that likes nature and sports, enjoys being with children and meeting new people. People with good vibes and positive energy. We are always active around here, so be ready for a lot of action.

    *️️️️️ *️️️️️ We may need some help with the marketing of the Surf House for Autumn. If you have some skills with promotion and marketing we could use your help. Our region is very touristic during summer, but once we hit the 10th of September it drops like crazy so we would love to improve the promotion of our place to make it work during mid September and October.

    What else ...

    Public transport in the area is not the best, but with a bike or walking you can go to amazing places. Anyhow we can take you to do some tourism if you come in spring or autumn. During summer will depend on our availability. There are some beautiful wild beaches, amazing cliffs, mountains, and it is a rural area.
    To get here you can fly directly to the local airport in Asturias which is 45 minutes away from our place. From there we can pick you up or you can get a bus for 10€ to Navia, a close by town in which we can pick you up. Anyhow get in touch for the details on how to get here.
