Hello my name is Unai. I’m from Sopela, in the Basque Country, a village at the Cantabric Sea. Due to it’s rainy weather, we have big mountains with lots of green vegetation and amazing cliffs along the coast, which is one of the reasons why the surf condition are perfect in this area all year round.
I started surfing when I was 9 years old. And I also enjoy sports like climbing, running, football and tennis!
It’s been 20 years that I know Cádiz and El Palmar very well and at the beginning surfing was much more difficult to practice. We didn’t have any forecast and boards and wetsuits where not too much advanced. Nowadays, the surf spot El Palmar is much more accessible for everybody and it’s one of my favorite spots for surfing.
It is a pleasure for me to have the opportunity of teaching the sport that has been my hobby for all these years and I’m so much looking forward to seeing you in the water, good waves!!
