The Surf house As Furnas is located in the northern Spanish region of Galicia, in the small village of Xuño, on the western Atlantic coast. The place Xuño, with its nearly 1,000 inhabitants, is located midway between the Atlantic and the mountain range of Barbanza, just a 5 minutes walk to the two beaches As Furnas and Rio Sieira. The Surf House is located in the hills at the foot of the mountain A Curota, which offers a variety of routes for both cycling and hiking. The view from the top is unique, ranging from the islands of Cies up to Finisterre, also known as the end of the world.
The remaining, untouched by mass tourism region in the immediate vicinity of the Surf House, together with its miles of sandy beaches and coves, offers ideal conditions for surfing.
The Atlantic climate and fertile soil create a green Spain, with lush meadows and forests, and the coastline is known for its miles of sandy beaches and secluded coves. The weather in summer is very good, with temperatures about 30 degrees during the day and cooling down at night. In spring and autumn temperatures are around 25 degrees.
The good Galician cousin is one of its tourist pillars. The excellent quality and variety of local products serve as a basis for diverse delicacies and dishes. The people are friendly and the area around the Surf House is completely untouched by mass tourism.
In addition to the ideal conditions for surfing, the area around the Surf House also offers a wide range of activities and excursions.
Whether you choose beach volleyball, fishing, snorkelling, rock climbing, horse riding, SUP or taking a walk along the sea on the 4 kilometers long wooden walkway starting in Xuño and passing by two lagoons, you’ll definitely find something to suit your taste.
But if sport alone is not enough for you, there is a number of interesting destinations, ranging from the impressive Celtic settlement in the neighbourhood of Castro de Baroña, the Galician capital Santiago de Compostela, to fishing villages and their charming ports such as Rianxo and Pobra do Caramiñal.
The Surf house was opened in the year 2012. It is surrounded by a mountain range, which provides a unique view of the Atlantic coast. It has five rooms with a double bed and one room with two single beds, each room with a private bathroom. On the ground floor there is an exclusively furnished community kitchen, a laundry room, a comfortable dining room, and a cozy living room with tv and dvd, having a direct access to one of the two spacious sun terraces.
The entire house has wireless Internet access, as well as DVDs, books, games and detailed tourist information about the various activities and excursions in the area. The extensive garden with lots of green space, a swimming pool to jump in after a long surf day and its own little forest has plenty of space to practice yoga, doing slack-line, play volleyball or just relax in one of the hammocks.
An extensive breakfast buffet is included. For lunch and dinner you can always use the community kitchen (two big fridges, dishes, pans, pots,..etc.) or we can cook for you. Dinner is a two dishes menu and dessert. The products are all fresh and from the region. We also offer special meals for vegetarians or persons who are allergic to something; f.e.: gluten and lactose free.
The surf courses are exclusively in small groups; divided into different surf levels. There is 1 surf teacher for 7 students.This allows us to respond individually to our participants and thus, a faster learning in a friendly atmosphere is guaranteed. The provided surfing equipment is in perfect condition. We have as well soft boards as fiberglass surfboards for our advanced surfers. Who is doing a surf course can also have the material for free outside the course; others can borrow it of course.
All beaches are about a one to 15 minute drive from each other. They are all beach breaks. The two home spots, As Furans and Rio Siera, are looking to west and picking up the most swell. When they are too big other spots; further south are good. You are going from the Surf House together with our surf instructors to a nearby beach where you are going to have a total of 4 hours of class a day, divided into 2 units. The surf course includes detailed theoretical and practical lessons and information about each surf spots.
The water temperature during the summer months amounts to about 20 degrees, which usually persists until late October. We recommend a 3/2mm wet suit during the summer months, and a 4/3mm wet suit for the rest of the year.
