The surf school and surcamp at El Palmar
9 Pies is a school pioneering in the instruction of surfing in Andalusia, an official centre of the Federación Española de Surf, a company of Active Tourism with the Junta de Andalucía and forms part of Aesop (the Official Association of surf schools in El Palmar) and we are doing what we love, teaching surf, since 2005
Situated in El Palmar, Vejer de la Frontera, on a strip of coastline with a mild climate all year round and charming, unspoilt beaches and amazing scenery. El Palmar is a beach full of perfect peaks for learning to surf or to improve your surfing.
We’ve had thousands of students of all ages and nationalities participating in our courses with who we’ve had the chance to share our passion for the sport and the ocean.
Our instructors are all qualified with the Federación Española de Surf and the International Surfing Association, instructing classes in English and Spanish in reduced groups to offer the best possible level of teaching.
We have all the necessary equipment available for our classes and also for rental, especially suited to different skill level and sizes. Whether it’s your first time surfing or you already know how to ride a wave but want to learn how to ride walls, get more speed and do some tricks, our unique teaching method will help you to make rapid progress in a simple and pleasant environment. Depending on conditions or the needs of our students, we also offer the classes in nearby locations such as Barbate, Los Caños de Meca, Roche or Conil.
At our surf camps you can relax and share your experience with others while staying in our surf houses in an ideal, natural environment where you can explore the nearby villages and participate in multiple other activities
