Very friendly staff! The employees are bilingual and there many Americans around. Looking to surf the Basque waves? You’ve come to the right place, they rent boards and wetsuits. We purchased a few shirts and sweatshirts which read “surfing the Basque Country”

4 beginners all successfully caught multiple waves within our 1.5 hour lesson. Our instructor Griffin was an absolute legend, giving great individual instruction to each of us and adding to the fun with his infectiously positive attitude. Highly recommend Puka’s to anyone!

Sorry for delay, yes they do lessons for children, they have a daily surf school or you can book individual lessons. When we were there they had some really little ones at surf school having a fabulous time.
