“Since I was little, I have maintained a close relationship with the beach and with surf. Peña Txuri has meant so much to me, as this is where my small feats began in this sport, first as a student and later as an instructor and coach. I have been teaching surfing for 25 years, it is my passion. In my professional career I have trained many surfers with successful careers such as Leticia Canales, Natxo Gonzalez, Txaber Gaminde, Ander Mendiguren, Aletxu Gironi y Kalani Dasilva among others.

I am passionate about traveling. I’ve visited places with magnificent waves, and have been lucky to have shared and had experiences that have made me grow and improve as a trainer. To do something I enjoy is an honor for which I continue to perfect because I would like to offer all of my students complete training that will serve them in their athletic careers.”


“I’ve been surfing since I was 7 years old and since then, cannot remember a day that I wasn’t close to the sea and the waves. I have been involved in the school for more than half my life, first as a student and then as an instructor. During all of these years I’ve competed in National and European championships for which I have spent many years training with Aritza Saratxaga. Surfing is my life and my dream. To be able to work in something I love is a gift, and it means even more to be able to do it in the place where I also learned and grew as a surfer. For me, Peña Txuri has never been just a school, but has been a family, that I’ve watched support and continue to support new surfers over the years.”

“Surfing has been very important in my life, I have been surfing for more than 10 years. Since I was young, I would look at the waves every day from the shore and I would dream of my first day on one of those waves. I love to travel and have been lucky to get to know places, waves and lovely people. Each of my trips and adventures has helped me to grow as a surfer and person. Because of this, I am very clear that surfing is my life and my passion, one which I would like to share with everyone who wants to get to know this world that has given me so much.”

Denis Martínez

“I started surfing as a child and since then I’ve had the opportunity to surf and get to know many places in the world. Now, as an instructor, it is a pleasure to share all of the knowledge that I have acquired during this time. Surfing has given me indescribable moments, and for me being able to share the feeling you have when you catch your first wave with all of the people who come to the school, is one of the things I like the most about this job. I am proud to be part of a team that enjoys what they do.”

Ander Idarraga

“Surfing from the first time I tried it I knew it was my sport, and from that moment surfing has become a way of life for me. And what better way to show my passion for surfing than by teaching all my knowledge to the clients.”

“Throughout my life I have been trying very different sports, but the only one I continue to practice is surfing. I started by signing up for a summer week at Peña Txuri and since then I have not left it. Now that I am a monitor, I see myself reflected in my students and I enjoy sharing the sensations of this sport and celebrating their achievements as much as they do. The best thing about getting in touch with surfing through the school is the people you meet along the way. Both students and instructors create an atmosphere very warm and a support network that goes beyond surfing. “


Surfing is a very important part of my life. Since I started surfing at the age of 12, there is not a single day that is not present in my life. The close relationship with nature makes this sport one of the most special activities you can do. Surfing has given me the opportunity to meet incredible people and places. In addition, to form values ​​of respect for nature.

Thanks to Peña Txuri, I can transmit all my passion to the students who want to live an unforgettable experience. It is a pride to be part of this great family that has made me grow as a professional and as a person.

All my life I have been in contact with the sea, from a very young age I saw the sea from the balcony of my house and I just wanted my father to take me surfing. Since the moment I stepped on the water I have not come out again. My studies have always been focused on sports and little by little I have been dissecting them towards surfing, which is what I enjoy the most. Thanks to surfing, I have been able to move a lot because it was what motivated me to travel. What I like the most about surfing is everything it gives you and being able to teach people and see how they enjoy and feel it.

Hello! I am passionate about the sea and of course, surfing! which for me is the best sport to enjoy the marine environment since it allows you to connect with the waves in a very natural way. Since I was 16 years old, I have been teaching surfing along different coasts such as Lanzarote, my home island, Asturias and Euskal Herria. I consider this beautiful sport to be one of the most outstanding for connecting with nature, that is why I would love to show you all its virtues!

I’ve been surfing since I was 12 years old. I started taking surf lessons in Peña txuri, and I’m still here today, now not only as a student, but also as a monitor. I have practiced this sport for half my life, and it has given me brutal and unrepeatable sensations, as well as some great friendships that I still maintain today. It fills me with happiness to think that a student of mine can create a bond with surfing like the one I have created, and that is my main objective: that people enjoy surfing and everything that surrounds it.


Since I was little, surfing has been very present in my life by the hand of Peña txuri Surf eskola. I have been at this school for many years, starting as a student and now ending as a monitor. Peña txuri for me, it is not simply a school but it is a family. I have come to compete in different championships having achieved good results, just like in Snowboarding.

Surfing from the first moment I practiced it has always given me good feelings, being able to teach students these feelings and how fun this is, is one of the things that I like the most.


I have been a surfer for more than 30 years, my whole life has revolved around surfing and I have taught for more than 15 years, the possibility of transmitting your knowledge to people is something that fills me with satisfaction, and being able to do it in a school that has the best materials and facilities is a luxury
To this day I continue to surf every day with the same enthusiasm and training to continue teaching in the best possible way.


The red neck and saltpeter in the beard, surfing is my happiness. In sope, abroad … I’m always thinking about surfing, enjoying this gift of nature. Taking turns studying and working, I never lack a hole to surf. I have been in love with the sea since I was little, it is one of the greatest treasures of our land.



I started surfing when I was 10 years old in Peñatxuri and from the moment I entered the water for the first time, I knew that surfing was what I was passionate about and I am still passionate about today. From the first day I realized that it was not just a surf school but that it was a small family and they invited me to be part of the wonderful family that continues to grow day after day and always with the same spirit. Year after year training improved until today that I teach to see in people’s faces the same illusion that I had the first day I touched the water ready to surf.



I have been surfing since I met the people of Peña txuri in the Sahara 13 years ago, from that day I knew that surfing was going to be part of my life. I love being part of this family, I can’t be happier, now my goal is to continue training as a surfer and teacher, therefore, I take advantage of each day as if it were my last.
In all my classes I try to convey to all my students the values ​​of solidarity and learning that have so marked my personal and professional life.
