the best place to learn to surf in europe

We visited in Southwest surf house for a little over two weeks and it was hands down this was the highlight of our European adventure. The atmosphere and vibe is relaxing, inclusive, loving, and adventuresome. The beautiful staff are definitely what makes the place an unforgettable experience. I can not recommend this place enough !! I would live there if they would let me! Do yourself a favour and check out the best surf house in Europe!

best surf house in hossegor

This place is the antidote to all that is stressful; a truly magical spot where all sense of time fades away in a melting pot of laughter, music, conversation and shared experience. Raff runs the show with a calm demeanour while Fraser tip toes from guest to guest ensuring that everyone is having a great time on their own level; either he’s helping you either read the surf or to fling yourself backwards off a bridge. G is nothing short of a sorceress in the kitchen; I have never even imagined that vegetables could be elevated to the level dished out as standard at the Surf House. Her food is healthy, plentiful and served with a generous helping of great chat. An amazing time was had here!

best review of a surf camp in Europe

Southwest Surfhouse is a truely magical place. From the moment you arrive you start to unwind and relax. My partner and I spent 6 nights here and wished we stayed forever. From car park salsa lessons to sunset surfs, daily ice cream stops to the most unbelievable home cooked meals you will ever eat- this place has it all sorted! These legends instantly make you feel at home and your mind starts to plot how exactly you can quit your job and never leave. We had one of the best weeks of our lives. Saying goodbye was the hardest, made easier knowing I’ll definitely be back! Until next time legends! Xxx

An amazing surf camp

Raff and the SW team are the best crew of people ever. They make you feel at home, feed you the best meals and make sure every day is better than the last. I’d 100% recommend staying for the full seven days, any less will not be enough! We’re already planning our next visit back here. If you’re in Europe and love surfing, chilling and eating with absolute legends - this place is for you.

the best surf camp in europe

The southwest surf house is an amazing place to stay. Such relaxed vibes and amazing hosts. Really the perfect holiday. Raff and the team took us to some great surf spots, showed us around the town for all the best places to visit. Every evening we had amazing food cooked by the in house chef Georgia. It was a great place to meet amazing people, perfect for couples groups or even going alone. After the week I already feel part of the family, I will definitely come back again!
