Pukas and Basque Surfing
Crazy about surfing? If you are looking for a board or a wetsuit or you want to take a class, remember the name: Pukas.
Pure surfer spirit.
San Sebastián is one of the essential destinations on the peninsula for surf enthusiasts. The Playa de la Zurriola delights surfers. If the waves are big, the Playa de la Concha itself becomes a very appealing option. As do the beaches in neighbouring towns. For example, important international championships are held in Zarautz. This background saw the appearance of the Pukas brand and its fabulous boards in 1979. Its creators were three family members from Gipuzkoa: Íñigo Letamendia, Marian Azpiroz and Miguel Azpiroz. Now Pukas is also a school and a sponsor and organiser of competitions in Spain. It has also become an ambassador for surfing and the sporting culture of San Sebastián around the world.
