You can also sign up for classes to improve your style or discover this hugely exciting way to enjoy the sea.

Surf is one of the most deeply rooted disciplines in San Sebastian. Hordes of youngsters, and the not-so-young practice the sport almost every day, even in winter.

The beach par excellence for surfing in the city is the one popularly known as "La Zurriola". It has different areas, with different waves, where you can practice according to your ability.

In summer hugely popular local championships are held. At the Pensión Aia we belong to the Donostia Surf City Cluster.
