NORTHERN (SURFTRIP)

Processed with VSCO with c3 preset

Los viajes nunca salen como una espera… nuestra parada en Hossegor no salió de Donosti y de allí solo paramos hasta llegar a Gijón. La cosa comenzaba nada más salir. Nos encontramos con un temporal de viento y nieve en la carretera desde Somosierra hasta 50 km de la costa de Donostia. Aunque no todo iban a ser problemas, al llegar a San Sebastián la suerte cambiaba gracias a nuestro amigo Arztai (eternamente agradecidas) encontrábamos un sitio mágico al ladito de la playa para pasar la noche y el día siguiente, Donosti Chill.

Trips never are as we wait…Our stop in Hossegor did not leave Donosti and from there we only stop until arriving at Gijón. Problems start at the beginning of the trip. We find a wind and snow storm on the road from Somosierra to 50 km from the coast of Donostia. Although not everything would be problems. When we arrived in San Sebastian our luck changed and thanks to our friend Arztai (eternally grateful) we found a magical place next to the beach to spend the night. I And the next day, Donosti Chill!

Para haceros una idea de ¿Qué es Donosti Chill? Podríamos describirlo como un lugar para estar de paso por la ciudad en el que puedes ir con tus amigos, o tu sola. A nosotras nos pareció una pasada! Un apartamento enorme con encanto propio donde se respira tranquilidad y buen rollismo. Fundado por Alejandra Romo, una aventurera mexicana que decidió quedarse en la costa vasca desde hace ya unos años… a la que se le ocurrió la genial idea de compartir piso con huéspedes de todo el mundo (da igual si no eres surfer o yogui, allí también hay sitio para ti). Para que os orientéis está situado al ladito de la playa de la Zurriola, donde muchas veces incluso dan clases de yoga en la playa, aunque normalmente en su salón dan un par de días clase a la que tuvimos el placer de asistir aunque andábamos medio zombies después del viaje. Alejandra, me avisó que a partir de enero volverán con los talleres de comida saludable en los que todos podéis participar y hacer unos platos riquísimos. Apuntároslo, subrayarlo e ir!!! _________________________________________________________________________________

To give you an idea of What is Donosti Chill? We could describe it as a place of passage where you can go with your friends, or alone. We found it incredible! A huge apartment with its own charm where you can breathe tranquility and good vibrancy. Founded by Alejandra Romo, a Mexican adventurer who decided to stay on the Basque coast for a few years…and she came up with the great idea of sharing a flat with guests from all over the world (no matter if you’re not a surfer or yogi, there is also room for you!). To orient you, it is located next to Zurriola beach, where many times they even give yoga classes on the beach, although normally in their classroom they teach a couple of days. We had the pleasure of attending even though we were zombies after the trip. Alejandra told me that from January they will return with the workshops of healthy food in which everyone can participate and make some delicious dishes. Point it out, underline it and go!!!

Después del yoga, “bocata” y a la carretera… ¿Qué os contábamos en el primer párrafo? Nada! Y repetimos nada sale como imaginas porque todo es impredecible. Por eso mismo, sería que acabamos en un autobús recorriendo la costa norte de media tarde hasta casi media noche (una **** locura, las cosas como son) hasta llegar al “Gijón Surf Hostel hogar dulce hogar de Alex y Álvaro, dos surferos muy simpáticos que nos subieron los bártulos hasta nuestra habitación (no podíamos con nuestra vida) en un abrir y cerrar de ojos. Sería tarde pero se nos quitó el cansancio en 5 min porque tenían cena internacional y eso animaría a cualquiera. Santi, uno de los chicos de la casa, el chaval se había preparado una cena de 10! porque cada jueves toca reunirse en la casa con el resto del equipo Alejandro, Lucy y Joaquin!

 El Hostel para los que no sepáis ¿Qué es? Es una especie de “hotel” al más puro estilo live style surfer, dónde conoces gente de cualquier parte, comparte zonas comunes y te tienes asegurado pasártelo en grande!!!

After yoga, snack and back to the road… What did we tell you in the first paragraph? Nothing! And we repeat, nothing comes out as you imagine because everything is unpredictable! That’s why we ended up in a bus traveling the north coast from mid-afternoon until almost midnight (a f**** madness, things like they are) until we get to “Gijón Surf Hostel“. The “sweet home” of Alex and Alvaro, two very friendly surfers who upgraded our gear to our room (we were dead because of the trip) in a blink of an eye. It would be late but the fatigue was gone in 5 min because they had international dinner and that would encourage anyone. Santi, one of the boys, had prepared a luxury dinner because every Thursday there is a meeting in the house with the all team: Alejandro, Lucy and Joaquin!

The Hostel (for those who do not know) What is it? It is a kind of “hotel” in the style “live style surfer”, where you meet people from everywhere, share common areas and you have assured to pass it on big!!!

Los días siguientes nos esperaban la playa de San Lorenzo, la bonita de nuestra amiga Marta Berenguer (pionera en España en la modalidad de surfing en longboard, más abajo podéis ver algunos vídeos para conocer de qué se trata) y su escuela de surfing: Marejada. Hacía frío pero si quieres surfear vas hacerlo incluso nieve (quien sabe). Si os somos sinceras para todos aquellos que teman surfear en invierno, el frío en neopreno ni los vas a notar es incluso mejor que cualquier abrigo de calle…  y como ya hemos repetido en varias ocasiones ójala el surf fuera como montar en bici, y aunque te sintieras a gusto en el agua en tu último baño siempre hace falta volver a recordarlo un poco. Nuestro monitor fue; Ivan Preciados, un crack de los buenos surfeando en longboard. Muy recomendable él, si quieres aprender de verdad y coger buenas olas. Se adaptan a todos los niveles tanto para principiantes como para nivel avanzado.

The following days, we went to the beach of San Lorenzo, with the beautiful one of our friend Marta Berenguer (pioneer in Spain in the mode of surfing in longboard, below you can see some videos to know what it is) and its surfing school: “Marejada” . It was cold but if you really want to surf you’ll do it even with snow (who knows!). If we are honest, for all those who fear to surf in winter, the cold in neoprene will not appreciated; is even better than any street coat…! And as we have repeated on several occasions… I wish the surf was just like riding a bike. Even if you felt comfortable in the water in your last bath, you always had to remember it a little. So our monitor was Ivan Preciados, a good surfing boss on longboard. Highly recommended, if you really want to learn and catch good waves. They adapt to all levels for both beginners and advanced level.
