Surfing

The surf is very important in the basque coastline and you can use Camping Itxaspe as a base-camp to move around the surfing hot-spots in the Basque Country. You could surf in the wave of Itxaspe (near the campsite), in the surroundings town's beaches like Deba, Zumaia, Zarautz or in less than an hour drive you get to Hossegor or Mundaka. In case you are new in surfing, you could learn it in the surfing schools in Deba, Zumaia or Zarautz.

 

Mutriku
This is a very intense left located between Mutriku and Deba, a high-quality point break in an extremely beautiful rocky cove. It has a critical take-off, which is also the most powerful part of the wave. You access the wave from on top of the cliff and it is visible from the road.

 

Deba
One of the Basque Coast´s biggest waves can be found on Deba Beach. A right-hander known as Sorgin –Zulo, extremely powerful and which is surfable up to 15 ft . One of the unmissable winter surfing destinations. Its sand and rock bottom makes it even more dangerous. On days when the sea is not so big there are various peaks along the length of the beach and closer to the shore, which depending on the state of the seafloor can provide good sessions. There is a local surf club.

 

Zumaia
There are right-hand and left-hand waves that vary depending on the tides. The western part of San Telmo Beach requires a higher level of  skill because of its sand and rock bottom. At high tide here a wave forms close to the shore that bounces off the cliff and creates excellent ramps for bodyboarders. On this beach, which is presided over by the hermitage of the same name, there are some examples of flysch, beautiful geological formations of great scientific value which are numerous on this stretch of the Basque Coast.

 

Orrua
The wave at Orrua, located in the cove of the same name, is one of the highest-quality breaks on the coast of Gipuzkoa province. Its rocky seafloor creates good tube-riding sections both right and left. It is surfable up to 6 ft . If the waves get higher than that, Orrua´s elder sister, Roka Puta, starts to break.

 

Roca puta
One of the Basque Coast´s splendid big waves, a very powerful right-hander which can reach 15 ft in height. The local big wave riders´ greatest feats have been achieved at this spot. The wave can be seen from the road and has become a spectacle for fans. The left is also surfable and generates more barrels, but it is dangerous, as it breaks nearer the coastline.

 

Playa gris
The tow-in wave par excellence, although it has also been surfed without a jetski, paddling in the traditional way. Here the biggest and most intense surf sessions in the history of Basque surfing have taken place, and the images have been seen the world over: waves over 30ft., surfed by the best tow-in teams in Europe. On more than one occasion this wave and its protagonists have been nominated for the World XXL Big Wave Award, the most prestigious in the world. If it is breaking, it is definitely not to be missed!

 

Getaria
Although the right-hander stands out especially on big days, the beach also has other waves like the left near the rocks and the waves close to the shore in high tide. It has a sand and rock bottom with slabs that are dragged from one place to another. It faces east and depending on the state of the seafloor can provide excellent sessions. There is a surf club on the very pretty beach.

 

Zarautz
The reference point for all Guipúzcoa province´s coast, and one of the best breeding grounds for surfers in Europe. It is the longest beach on the Basque Coast and has multiple breaks. It is ideal for complete beginners and has more than 5 schools, with one of the most active surf clubs  on the coast. It holds several competitions during the year, the most famous of which is the World Qualifying Series in September. Going from west to east, there are the peaks in the port area (which breaks when the waves are more than 6 ft.) , then we have La Marina and Argiñano, the true epicentres of the beach, and finally El Canal, slightly further away at the eastern tip which provides quality sessions. The surfing atmosphere in Zarautz is incredible, especially in the Argiñano area and the centre of the village.

Guia de Olas: DEBA

La playa de Santiago de Deba es una de las mas conocidas de la Costa Vasca, junto con la playa de Lapari, suman un montón de picos. Disfruta de unas olas de inmejorable calidad y con opciones para los surfistas de todos los niveles. Además de ser idonea para surf, es una playa ideal para body board, paddle surf y otros deportes acuáticos. En otoño e invierno en la zona de Sorgin-etxe se forma una de las mayores olas de la Costa Vasca.

 

Cerca del camping, alrededor de Sakoneta (dentro del biotopo protegido), se puede encontrar una gran cantidad de buenas olas.

- Escollera, ola de izquierdas

  • En la zona este de la playa, esta ola asoma de marea baja a media marea. Con mar nor-noroeste se mueve entre 0,5-2 metros. Fondo de arena.

- Zezen arroka

  • Es una ola mixta (izquierdas y derecha) del centro de la playa de Santiago. Aparece tanto con marea baja, media como alta. Con mar nor-noroeste se mueve entre 0,5-1,5 metros. Fondo de arena.

- Lapari, ola de derechas en el centro de la playa

  • Con baja-media marea. Con mar nor-noroeste 0,5-1,5 metros. Fondo de arena.

- Lapari, izquierda de la Salbe

  • Al final de la playa, en la esquina donde comienzan las rocas. De baja a media marea. Con mar nor-noroeste se mantiene entre 1,5 y 2 metros. Fondo de arena.

- Itxaspe

Caminando desde el camping, en la cala mas cercana se encuentra esta ola de agua poco profunda que necesita un oleaje denso, pero no demasiado grande, porque de lo contrario las corrientes son muy fuertes y las olas no son muy limpias. Es una ola para expertos y ofrece la posibilidad de hacer todo tipo de ejercicios, incluyendo tubos.

- Basajaun & Itziarko Ezkerra

Cuando se comenzó a surfear en este punto, la primera ola que tomaron fue "Ezkerra Itziarko" (La Izquierda de Itziar). A partir de ahí comenzaron a hacer surf en las diferentes olas cercanas. No quiere decir que no sea una ola exenta de peligro, porque en esta zona del mar siempre hay rocas en el fondo. Los ola rompe sobre un paso; pero las corrientes hacen difícil permanecer en el mismo lugar, en particular cuando el oleaje es grande. La primera sección es adecuada para expertos, mientras que la segunda es adecuada para surfistas experimentados.

 

Por el contrario, Basajaun esta más adentrada en el mar. La izquierda es corta pero fuerte y la derecha larga y mas suave. No es fácil llegar a ella; queda bastante lejos. No es un buen lugar para tener un accidente.
