We offer surfing lessons every day of the year including holidays, except Sundays, complete courses for beginners and intermediates in Famara Beach. Since 1996 we have been teaching surfers of all nationalities on the island of Lanzarote. An international surfing school fully committed to teaching with a well defined objective so that you learn to surf quickly and safely. You can take a basic one-day course or an intensive surfing course for beginners or intermediates who want to continue improving in the hands of professionals.

In our surf school we have the best material to learn and we offer a special healthy program for the initiation with one of the best and most modern teaching systems “the Drysurf and the Gyroboards”, we have a gym of 200 meters where in the afternoons after surfing we will do some training, 100% oriented to help you improve your surfing quickly. Our Instructor Borja, with more than 10 years of experience in teaching surfing and licensed in physical education of the sport, will be responsible for customizing the classes in the gym depending on the level of each student.

Famara beach is without a doubt the best beach in the Canary Islands to learn to surf in complete safety, and where you can progress quickly thanks to the long distance of its waves. Many of the best surfers on the island of Lanzarote have learned to surf on this beach, with more than 5 kilometres of sand and endless waves along the entire beach, one of the jewels of the Canary Island’s surfers. In the natural reserve of Famara we also have accommodation at 100 meters from the waves, check out the page of the surf camp for adults. Surf courses with accommodation! in the paradise of Lanzarote.
