Project / Surfing Zumaia
Surfing Zumaia is the new project of the well-known Basque surfer Imanol Yeregi. Imanol has been surfing since he was a child, and now, based on his experience, he wants everyone to have the opportunity to have fun on a surfboard. Imanol has been surfing for many years in different parts of the world, competing and training with the best surfers and waves. Today, he is the current champion of the Basque Tour 2018 and continues competing in the WQS world tour championships.
The dream of opening a surf school in Zumaia to train young people has been around in Imanol’s head during several years, and, finally, it has become true. With this project, Imanol wants to merge his professional life with his passion, helping new generations to improve their surfing technique.
The new school is located in Zumaia (Gipuzcoa), just beside Itzurun beach, within 2 minutes walk from the well-known Flysch and 5 minutes from the heart of the village. Hence, the project is not only focused on the youngsters to professionalize their surfing, but also offers a wide range of surfing, bodyboarding and stand-up paddle surf courses. Furthermore, Surfing Zumaia’s first and the most important aim is to give everyone the chance to enjoy the experience to the maximum in contact with nature, regardless of the previous surfing skills or the age.
