Latas is a grass roots company born from a growing dream
turning a love of surfing into a way of life. Our team is made up of surfers from all corners of Europe who have found, in Loredo, their perfect slice of surfing paradise to practice their passion and pass on to everyone who comes through Latas.
Once you learn to slide through the waves with us, sharing your experiences with people from all over the world, whilst soaking up the good vibes, you will have caught the surfing bug and will understand that it is more than a sport and is a life experience.
Ale Morales is, in addition to a Malaga lover of Loredo, the person in charge of Latas and the one who always puts order and security ensuring our guests enjoy their time at Latas in a safe environment. He is passionate about everything he does and is full of energy, although he confesses that the he has actually been obsessed with surfing for at least 15 years. Surely a good thing?
Paco Santana is our most veteran surf instructor, after 11 years of wave riding, the Malagueño believes that Loredo is one of the best places to learn and perfect surfing. He has lived at Latas since the beginning and is responsible for the surf school. He only has one thing to ask you: Are we going to surf?
Cristina Martín entered the world of surfing and fell in love straight away. She has seen Latas grow since its inception so is a part of the furniture. You will find her spinning yarns behind the bar.
Laura Hennemann travelled from the north, to the south then back to the north where she now calls home. Laura preps your hearty breakfast every morning and will be found riding the waves every afternoon.
Juande is a born sportsman, after studying sports science he decided that surfing was the way of life for him. He started bodyboarding at a young age, then progressed to surfing and is now one of our most experienced surf instructor and a key part of the team.
Davide Bossini is our favorite Italian. He works in the kitchen and in his free time enjoys the tranquillity and natural purity unique to Latas. He only learnt to surf two years ago, but this has been enough to get him hooked forever.
Sacha Ramírez is our chef, with Russian and Valencian roots, he influences these styles of cooking with traditional Spanish flair. In addition to preparing delicious dishes, he is passionate about the atmosphere of Latas and life near the sea and mountains. He is living his dream!
We are located between the beaches of Playa Somo and Loredo, in the Bay of Santander, one of the best surfing places in Spain.
Waves break throughout the year for all levels, such as the smaller waves of the East, our most sheltered area, or the waves of “La Curva” a peak famous for the quality of its waves and intended for surfers with more experience. Our instructors will take you to the peak that is most suited for your ability.
We spend the year surrounded by sun, sea and surf, so we are the best to introduce you to living the surfing dream.
