After the success of last year’s camp we are doing it all over again….. book early and start getting ready…. summer is coming!!!

This year’s dates Sunday 3rd June – Saturday 9th June 2018

Come and join the Mamas Surf Club for an authentic surf trip at the world famous surf spot at Guéthary , with local surfers and Basque cuisine.

To sign up contact johannamatsson@yahoo.com

In June 2017 we launched the first annual Mamas Surf Week  in Guéthary a fishing village and cosmopolitan surf mecca on the Basque coast in south west France. It’s a surf trip for women of all ages. Leave your partners, kids, dogs, cats, jobs and stress at home and join the Surf Mamas!

The Mamas Surf Club started in Guéthary in 2005. Our aim was to get more women in the water, get rid of the myth that surfing was just for the guys, and have lots of fun. We did and we still do! Our motto was “Out of the kitchen and into the surf.”

The surf camp will combine the original ideas of the Mamas Surf Club with art, expeditions, Basque cuisine and giving you a taste of authentic surf culture built up around the legendary waves along the coast.

We will be staying at the Maison Marienia in the centre of Guéthary, which has been a base for surfing pioneers and travellers since the sixties, including legends like Miki Dora. You will get a  ‘Surfers Breakfast’ to give you energy for the day, picnic lunch for the surf trip and four evening meals at the Marienia.

There will be surf lessons from Monday to Friday with founder of the Mamas, Johanna Reinhardt, and a team of qualified instructors for all levels from beginners to advanced . This includes coaching, transport around the spectacular Basque coastline to find the perfect waves, a variety of boards to suit your skills, wetsuits and insurance.

When you’re not surfing, you’ll have a chance to explore the region, take trips to Biarritz, St Jean de Luz or San Sebastian ( all within half an hour), spend time on the beach, socialise in the village and watch the sunset over the ocean in one of the famous Guéthary beach bars.

The original Mamas Surf Club will be joining in the week, including Wilma Johnson author of Surf Mama a memoir about the club.
