Aritz Aranburu · Professional surfer

Hi, my name is Aritz Aranburu. I am 34 years old and I live in Zarautz. I have been a professional surfer for many years, and I spend 8-9 months each year travelling the globe, surfing in different championships and hunting the best waves.

In Gipuzkoa, we are surrounded by nature on all sides, sea and mountains. And people here eat better than elsewhere in the world.

For me, it is my home. I love travelling and appreciating the cultures of different places. There are two types of traveller: those who simply want to get away, and those who love travelling, and for whom travelling makes sense, precisely because they have a place to which to return, where they can feel comfortable. For me, Gipuzkoa is my meeting point, where I can “reboot” when I return home and charge my batteries before heading out for more adventures.

Beach at Zarautz

The beach at Zarautz. It's a real icon and a must for all surfers. And if you want to learn to surf and breathe in the surfing environment of Zarautz, there's no better place than the Shelter Surf Bar.

Sanctuary at Arantzazu

The Sanctuary at Arantzazu is a magical place, both for its architecture and for the ravine and the caves around it, and all the hiking trails you can take around the area. My father is from Oñati and since I was very young I've always enjoyed coming here.

Amusement park at Mount Igeldo

I love the amusement park at Mount Igeldo with its retro style. When I am in Gipuzkoa with my international surfing buddies, or competing in France, I always take them there on our day off. We take the funicular railway up so that they can enjoy all the old-fashioned essence of the park itself and admire the incredible views out over the city and the Bay of Biscay.
