Surfing meets coworking - follow the sun with us to Galicia!

We can't wait for the summer! So here's the plan. We join our pals from betahaus | Hamburg and go for a surf & cowork trip together! Therefore all of you, join us for this adventure!

One whole week we will work directly next to the BEACH! You can choose the date: 1st trip departs on 14 - 21st or join the second one on 23 - 30th of June.

The aim is to find the perfect combination of surfing Spanish waves and getting business done – work & travel 2.0! And all other coworkers from different coworking spaces, coworking fans and anybody are more than welcome to join us!


Picture this:

Just a walk away from the beach in Galicia, we have everything here that the coworking and surfer's heart desires . Our coworking friends from Driftwood Travelling have organized this trip for us and ensured that we feel sunny well. Because there is :

* 7 x varied organic breakfast

* 7 x dinner (cooking by each 2-3 participants - supplies brought by Driftwood Travelling )

* For advanced surfers: 7 x surf-guiding by the Driftwood Travelling team

* For Surf-Beginners : 3 x 3 hrs surf lesson with the surf teachers of Driftwood Travelling. In addition, common surfing and sharing tips and tricks.

* Different surfboards for beginners and advanced.

* 5 Yoga-Sessions offered by coworker Simone

* WIFI and Shared Printer

All this is included in the cost of 650EUR (betahaus member) or 750EUR (no betahaus member). There are cheap flights with Ryan Air to Porto or Santiago de Compostela. From there you can rent a car or guys from Driftwood Travelling pick you up with their van.

Orietta: When we started looking for a place I was already involved in the betahaus community. Working from previous betahaus locations and attending the community events, I already knew a lot of people in the 'haus ...

Joey: Yes, I remember on the first day we came to betahaus Orietta was like ‘’Oh, hey! Hi! Hey, how are you doing? Hi!'' giving high-fives to everybody and we were like: What is going on, why does she know everybody?!

Orietta: Well, the vibe in betahaus is just super easy going. You directly feel that you can meet people easily. If you go to the kitchen for example and just ask ''Hey how are you, what are you working on?''. We made many new contacts too.

Claudius: What makes it nice here is that people are enjoying being here and working on their projects.

Claudius: The truth is, we could probably afford an office for the same price, but that would put us between these four walls, which put you into a box, much harder to exit and to connect with new people. We went for a Team Desk because here we have so much more space and everything seems much more connected. You can easily meet people.

Orietta: And it’s just so spacious here. We have this super nice garden.

Claudius: I like being focused on my work but I also like if someone disturbs me from time to time. It helps when the door opens. In an office we would work in a whole different way. Here Gillord (Coworking Manager) is coming in everyday, giving me a hug, telling me about his workout .. that’s the main reason - the personal connection.

The day in betahaus starts with a hug and ends with a hug. The time in between is pretty much spent on doing what you love.

After you’ve taken care of your paperwork and you’ve signed up both in Bürger- and Finanzamt, you are all set up to start working. One of the best ways to get integrated into the city fast, meet like-minded people, and even find clients is by working from a coworking space. There are tons of benefits for freelancers and luckily Berlin has a lot to offer in this way. A coworking space is a physically collaborative shared workspace, which brings all kinds of creatives and entrepreneurs together. It’s a perfect place for startups, freelancers, digital nomads and even corporates searching for innovation. And it’s the biggest advantage towards the typical office space is that it pushes a collaborative exchange between its members and facilitates the creative process and networking.
