About this trip

Mobile surfschool De Surfbus and mobile hostel La Karavana team up to give you the ultimate Dutch surfing experience!

This intensive ‘crash course’ will teach you all the basics of surfing and safety to continue your surf-passion by yourself. We'll discover some of the best Surf Spots in The Netherlands on this 3 day long Surf Safari camp on Wheels! 

You will get surf lessons from the experienced surf instructors of De Surfbus. De Surfbus is a mobile surf school teaching surf on all the best surf spots in the Netherlands! Together with mobile hostel La Karavana they make the perfect team; we’ll chase the best waves and show you some of the best and most beautiful surf spots the Netherlands has to offer!

We'll turn on the music while we cruise along the coast together. You'll meet new people, with whom we'll be eating and sleeping in the bus on two different, unique camp spots, one of them through Campspace(where you can sleep in people's gardens, how nice is that). Of course bonfires & BBQ will be part of the weekend as well! La Karavana is a 46 year old double decker bus that is converted into a hostel by Jolisa, Saskia and Eileen. The driving hostel has everything you need; a fully equipped kitchen, living room, upstairs lounge, 9 super comfy beds and a heater just to be sure.
