South Coast Surfers

Welcome to South Coast

the most fun surf school in Cádiz!

We have years of experience teaching surf to both young and old of any ability with a dynamic method in a natural environment and the best surfing spot in Andalusia.

We are based at El Palmar, the expansive beach of Vejer de la Frontera in Cádiz province, which has become a major surf centre thanks to the consistency of its waves and local wind characteristics. At the southern tip of Europe, with Africa visible just across the Straits of Gibraltar, its mild climate makes it one of the best places to learn to surf throughout the year.

Our school is right at the beach, where the waves break next to the popular beach bar El Dorado, which has the best fresh juices, mojitos, sunsets and live music, and a children’s playground, too.

We offer courses throughout the year, equipment hire, accommodation (surf camps, where you can surf-and-stay), a surf shop, classes in yoga and fitness for surfing, nutrition, plus transfers, guides and additional services such as cycling, horseback riding, scuba diving, kite surfing and more.

We have all the required permits and insurance and are officially registered as a tourism activities company.

At South Coast our philosophy is that

learning should be fun!

We offer short- and long-term courses for all ages and abilities

Stay with us while you learn at one of our Surf Camps

If you just need to rent equipment, we have a complete range of boards, wetsuits, body boards, Stand-Up-Paddle and accessories

El Dorado Chill Out Bar

What better after a spell in the water than to relax in our beach-front bar El Dorado..?

Enjoy some of the freshest juices and fruit smoothies while choosing from a varied menu of snacks and meals, from simple homemade burgers to elaborate Moroccan mezzes.

Or skip straight to the cocktails and enjoy a sunset Mojito with a soundtrack provided by DJs who play throughout the day and into the night, when there is also live music with the best musicians of the area playing anything from reggae and flamenco to salsa and house.

And for families there is a children’s playground with bouncy castle and organised activities.

Everyone happy!
